Tips to a healthy diet: Colourful Fruits and Vegetables
It will be ideal if your child gets 5 children palm-sized servings of fruits and vegetables a day (250-300 grams). Vary and combine as many varieties for your child’s consumption. You could also replace one serving with pure fruit and vegetable juice or smoothie (with no added sugar, preservatives, colourings and additives). However, it is not recommended to give fruits and vegetables from a can as the Vitamin content is low.
Vitamin C is important for the immune defence. It is found in nearly all animal and plant foods, especially fresh fruits and vegetables. Vitamin C helps to give a healthy gum and aids wound healing.
