Parizad Batty-Avari EYE11-4.1 Explain the impacts of poor diet on children's health and development Nutritious food is of paramount importance for a healthy mind and body. Childhood is a time of critical growth in which proper nutrition is absolutely necessary. Children who have poor diets either due of a lack of food or because of bad eating habits and patterns, leads to inadequate intake of nutrients and are prone to significant short-term and long-term health impacts and diseases. Short-term impact on children’s health:
These deficiencies can cause anemia, obesity, eating disorders and cavities, also more serious illness such as heart disease, cancer and strokes. Students who consistently have insufficient protein score lower on achievement tests than their classmates who had adequate nutrition ( ). Thus, unhealthy diet options during childhood can have lasting consequences for poor children’s minds, bodies and
Research from the national diet survey shows that ‘92% of children consume more saturated fat than recommended, 86% consume too much sugar, 72% consume to much salt and 96% of children don’t eat enough fruit and vegetables.’ This shows that some parents
Researchers: Kyle Antonio Latayan & Margaret Manuel General Topic: Nutrition Narrowed Topic: Effects of malnutrition on children ages 6-10 in NCR in 2013 Thesis Statement: There are several effects of malnutrition among children living in the poverty line because they do not receive adequate education. Literature Review Nutrition is one of the essential processes directly influencing the overall health and growth of an individual. This requires a person to be fully aware on the types and quantity of food he or she needs to intake on a regular basis.

The teacher ratio was 24 to one teacher and two assistant teachers. Nutrition 1.They were posters on the cafeteria wall about health and unhealthy food. 2.The food preparation area of the kitchen is separated from the eating area and no children are allowed to enter.
Fluids and Nutrition Understand the Principles of Hydration, Nutrition and Food Safety 8.1 a Food safety, hygiene and sanitation is important in food handling. For instance, cleanliness of the environment, hands and body is necessary to ensure that there are no contamination and bacteria that can lead to more diseases. For example, throwing thrash in proper places reduces rats and flies in cooking area that can result in food bacteria and contamination. The hand washing, and using clean and well managed utensils, and kitchen surface must be ensured, in handling food, make sure that hands are sanitized or clean.
Lunch box audits are fundamental to the Munch and Move program because national data have demonstrated that high energy nutrient poor foods in a child’s lunchbox accounted for 1/3 of children aged 0-5 daily energy intake (Rangan, Randall, Hector, Gill & Webb, 2008). Thus these high energy nutrient poor foods displace core foods, which have severe negative impacts on the nutritional status of young children, contributing to increasing rates of obesity (Webb et al., 2006). Thus according to the Commonwealth Scientific Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) (2007) a many children aged 2-3 are not meeting the benchmark on a numerous essential nutritional requirements, for example dietary fiber intake for this age group was the lowest at 15.5g/day, which may hinder the child’s growth a development (CSIRO, 2007). In essence the Munch and Move lunchbox audits involved childcare teachers categorizing lunch boxes into three main categories that is: balanced, which contained at least a sandwich or home cooked meal and either
I have to balance the intake of carbohydrates, fats, and proteins. I have to reduce the intake of saturated and Trans fats. I will try to eat more lean protein such as legumes, fish, and skinless poultry. I will limit the frequency of fast- foods, try to cook at home and bring lunch and healthy snacks to school. I will consume more whole grain rich foods (Strategy: every time I eat carbs I will choose the whole grain option).
It would be very important to give Ruby information about prenatal vitamins to meet the nutritional requirements as well to look at her diet and increase her daily intake. During the second trimester the recommended daily amount is 340 kcal greater than before pregnancy (Perry et al, 2013, p.251). Other aspects of our discussion would be to include foods high in iron in her diet as well as limit caffeine intake (Perry et al,
Increased malnutrition is caused by poor diversification of diets such as relying too much on starchy staples. Thus, the consumption of a variety of foods is important for positive health. Malnutrition can be reduced by the consumption of diets having animal sources, vitamin-rich fruits and vegetables as well as nutrient-rich legumes (Arimond and Ruel, 2004; Thompson and Amoroso, 2011). According to the FAO, IFAD and WFP, (2015) about 800 million people do not have sufficient access to calories. A low intake of vitamins and minerals causes about 2 billion people all over the world to suffer from micronutrient malnutrition (IFPRI, 2014).
Many health nutritionists suggest that infant rice cereal filled with iron, mixed with a baby formula or breast milk should be the baby's first food solid food. This is because rice has a much lower chance than the other grain products to cause any allergic reactions. You can use a food processor, grinder, food mill or a basic blender to make the food softer so it'll be easier for the baby to consume. If all of this sounds too time consuming to you, you can always use a fork. If you are having a family meal and want to feed your baby, take out a portion of the food for the baby before you add any taste to it (spice, seasoning, salt, and so forth) in case allergies are present.
