If you have ever been concerned about the development of your children because of a diet that lacks many essential nutrients and is full of harmful chemicals and sugar, now is a wonderful time to explore holistic nutrition through pediatric treatment in Arlington.
It is frightening to see that the health of our children is in danger. High cholesterol, type 2 diabetes and high blood pressure used to be problems only for the older generation. Now, we see it in elementary school children and even babies. A life of junk food, focus on digital devices and a sedentary life lead to a life of obesity and chronic medical problems. Artificial sweeteners cause internal damage that may not be evident in the short term but can develop into irreversible health issues.
There are numerous studies that have shown the negative effects of artificial sweeteners and other chemicals in our foods. Problems such as ADHD and autism have a direct correlation with diet.
Making small positive changes to your family diet can net tremendous results for everyone. Substitute fruit as a dessert rather than high carbohydrate sweets. Add (even sneakily) vegetables into foods where children will not expect them. Involve the kids in meal planning and creation. Addition of natural vitamins and supplements can make up for deficiencies where children simply will not eat particular foods.
