Dr. Tatyana Meshcheryakova, a Russian nutritionist, revealed some of the rules for a healthy diet for children in the summer.
According to her, it is necessary to increase the amount of protein in the diet of children. Because amino acids are a necessary substance for protein synthesis in the body, especially during growth.
The expert advises parents to limit the content of the so-called “empty calories” in the children’s diet, which are found in cookies, cakes, sweets and more. Instead, it is recommended to replace them with vegetables and fruits rich in vitamins and minerals.
According to her, the number of calories in children’s daily food should be 15-20 percent higher than the usual norm so that the child has additional energy.
