Keto Food Questions

What should I do if I can’t make my kids eat healthy foods?

If your child only consumes junk food, and avoids vegetables, fish and meats, then this information is for you!

Picky eating is most often due to nutritional deficiencies. The best plan is to start your kids out on healthy, nutritious foods from birth to ensure they have no nutritional deficiencies. Later, especially at a certain age, it is often very difficult to get your child to consume the right foods.

A zinc deficiency is common among children. Zinc affects your child’s ability to smell and taste. Consuming refined carbs and sugars will create a zinc deficiency.

MSG and modified food starch affect a child’s appetite. If he is consuming foods like
savory snacks, sugary cereals, french fries, mac and cheese, cheese sticks, frozen waffles and packaged foods, then he is likely to be consuming a lot of MSG and modified food starch as well. In turn, these increase appetite and insulin. Always avoid MSG.

If your child is lacking DHA or vitamin B1, she is likely to have problems with mood and behavior–especially anger.

If a child has enough B1, he is going to be calm – he won’t feel restless and he’ll have more self-control.

Refined carbs and sugars can create vitamin B1 and DHA deficiencies.

You should find Healthy Keto® substitutes for high-carb and high-sugar foods. Make the transition from unhealthy junk foods to Healthy Keto foods. Instead of telling your children that they can’t have junk foods, find a healthy substitute.

You can also get your child to make the recipes with you. Many children enjoy cooking healthy foods.

It can take some time to transition to healthier food options. While you’re doing the transition, it can help your children to take supplements to compensate for any nutrient deficiencies. These will help rebalance their body chemistry and make it easier to come off junk foods.
