Being adult does not mean you know more than a kid. There are some points in life that those little ones know more than the adults. It does not literally mean that the kids are smarter than the adults. There are just some things in life that the adult’s mind forgot. They may have encountered those points yet they were too occupied that they left some values in the past. So, sometimes it is the kids who remind the adults about these values.
Sometimes it is the kids who teach the adults about these values. You cannot, sometimes, even believe them telling you about these things, especially about healthy eating.
If you are in great doubt about these then here are the top 7 things kids can teach you about healthy eating.
1.) Kids savor every bite
How many adults right now who takes time in savoring every bite they take? Well, it will be just around 30-50% of them, right? Most of the working adults eat meals like the train would leave them any second they take a bite. You cannot blame them if they are in a rush into something else. But you can always blame them if they cannot find a good time for a meal. If you are an adult right there then be reminded of this quote: “If there is a will there is a way”. Health is the greatest wealth you could ever have in your life. Do not take it for granted. You might end up regretting in the end. Nobody would want that.
2.) Kids bring there own lunch
Did you remember when was the last time you bought a lunch with you? It was maybe a decade ago or more than that, right? But kids are bringing their home-made lunch in school, field trips, or anywhere they go away from home. They are always ready. They do not want to make their tummy to get upset about them.It is also a way of saving more money. But how many adults are doing the same thing as that in today’s situation? It may be around 10-20%. So, if you are planning to cut off some of your budgets then it would be better for you to do this kind of idea.
3.) Kids listen to their tummy
Whenever you hear a child crying you then think that they are hungry. Kids cannot keep their tummy empty for a long period of time. They either cry or do some tantrums attack to their parents. But sometimes parents insist their kids eat more in every meal, which in fact is wrong. Kids have their inborn ability to control the satisfaction of their stomach. They eat up to the point of being full and they react whenever they have an empty stomach. Isn’t good to apply on every adult’s way of eating properly during a single meal? You should not force your stomach to eat more than its capabilities. You should not also let your stomach empty for a long period. Eat whenever you are hungry. But, eat with the right amount of food.
4.) Kids choose what to eat
Even a kid knows what they should eat. Every time they taste too much of something in a food they spit it out and never have a second bite of it. It is not so practiced by most of the adults. Some adults force their own to drink a soda which was opened for quite some time already. Some also eat chips or popcorns which are already stale. Some adults eat too much sugary food which even a kid cannot take. Take a lesson from a kid and the next time you eat choose what is good for your body.
5.) Kids don’t count the calories they take
Most of the kids do not know what calorie is. They eat food according to their likings and up to the point of being full. They do not count every calorie they take. They are not conscious of something else. They choose to eat because it is what makes them happy and satisfied. Whenever they want something to eat they choose to eat it without thinking of the calories those foods have. They are just simply satisfying their own cravings and enjoy the food.
6.) Kids enjoy every meal
They don’t think of anything else whenever they eat. They sit on the chair and have a meal, simple as that. But for some adults, it is too hard to just sit on the chair and have a meal. Some of them eat while they are still on the phone. Some also bring their laptops or tablets with them just to keep track of what is happening to their works. They take the food for granted and forgot to enjoy the entire meal.
7.) Kids sweat out every day
Kids are naturally active. It is not a big deal if they eat too much because they just simply sweat everything out. They play all throughout the entire day which makes the food they eat digested properly. Unlike some of the adults, they eat too much yet do nothing for the rest of the day. It would be better for your body to somehow sweat things out, just in case you were just doing nothing the whole day.
