Menus of the week for children to make at home

When a child reaches the age of 2 to 3 years, finding the perfect meal that suits him becomes a very delicate task. They tend not to appreciate their old dishes anymore. It is during this period that your child needs a well-balanced and healthy meal. This helps to ensure its growth and health. It therefore requires a daily varied menu. To make it easier for you, I will show you in this article a children's menu idea for each meal of the day for the week. It contains quick and easy recipes to cook.

Essential foods for a child

Our child deserves a varied menu and quality meals. It is during his childhood that he is most fragile. It is then necessary to take into account the food diversification of the baby to strengthen his immune system and his bones. There are basic foods that should be added to the child's daily menu.

Adding vegetables to your diet is crucial. They constitute organic materials that are essential to it. Don't forget the fruit too. For his health, it is important that he eats at least 2 different fruits a day.

Dairy products are the most important, a child should eat at least 2 varieties a day. They provide calcium, phosphorus and fundamental minerals for their growth.

The importance of each meal of the day

Every meal of the day is essential. It is therefore not necessary to skip one and to diversify them daily to modulate the intake of vitamins, proteins and mineral salts. A child should eat 4 times a day:

  • Breakfast : This is the most important meal of the day. It must represent 30% of the daily intake. It provides the essential energy supply for the child. It also fills the food fast. That is to say, when an individual has not eaten any food for 16 hours. So try to opt for foods containing dairy products such as cheese, yogurt and growing-up milk.
  • Lunch : This is the most important meal of the day. It must be more caloric, because the child is more active at noon. This type of meal must then be complete to provide him with the energy necessary for all his activities.
  • Snack : this is mandatory, it is a considerable source of energy. It reduces snacking before dinner time.
  • Dinner : This is the final meal of the day. His standard evening menu for the child must then be lighter, because at night, the activities are less important. In addition, at night, promotes the storage of calories which causes obesity.
