Lets get our kids back on the right track with Superfoods for Kidz!

GUEST POST BY THE LOVELY VANESSA NIXON OF SUPER FOODS FOR KIDS

For the first time in history
children are less healthy than the generation before them. They are not just a
little worse off, they are precipitously worse off, physically, emotionally,
educationally and developmentally
– Judy Converse – MPH, RD, LD
What
has changed over the years …
  •  Since the 1930’s our exposure to
    chemicals through food, our environment and products used in the home has
    increased dramatically
  • Consumption of fast foods and
    processed foods has increased dramatically,
  • The vitamin and nutrient content of
    our foods has declined dramatically 
  • Children are born with a certain
    enzyme bank account, some more than others. Children born of parents who
    regularly eat nutrient depleted foods have a smaller enzyme account, by the
    second and third generation of parents on deficient foods they are often born
    with allergies or develop generative diseases quickly
  • Australian
    Children have the highest rate of allergies in the world.
  • 85% of
    Australian children are obese
  • 17% of
    Australian children are overweight
  • 1/3 of
    Australian children consume little or no fruit or vegetables
  • 78% of
    Australian children don’t meet the dietary guidelines for daily veggie intake
  • 39% of
    Australian children don’t meet the guidelines for daily fruit intake
  • There is a
    general decline in fruit consumption in Australian children between 2 – 11
    years of age
  • 32% of
    Australian mums find it difficult to get their kids to eat fruit in their
    school lunches
  • Almost all
    parents have struggled with fussy eaters or busy lifestyles that make it hard
    to get all the recommended serves of fruits and vegetables into their kids,
    every single day.
As
busy mums we need to do all we can to get the best nutrition we can into our
kids from an early age (it’s not always easy ! I have a child with major
sensory issues with food so I know) a few quick tips are :


  • If you can’t pronounce the name of a
    food – don’t eat it
  • Don’t eat anything your grandmother
    wouldn’t recognise as a food
  • Eat food with ingredients a normal
    person would have in their pantry
  • Avoid low fat or Light foods
  • Eat foods made from ingredients you
    can picture in their raw state or growing in nature
  • Limit your exposure to toxic
    chemicals, choose your cleaning products, beauty products and any products
    exposed to the skin carefully. 
The
Nutra Organics team were concerned for the health and future of our children
and grandchildren so we sought out a way to Boost the kids daily nutrient
Intake with Superfoods and Wholefood Multivitamins. We noticed a huge change in
the health of our children as a result of consuming our formulations on a daily
basis and hence Superfoods for Kidz products were born.

For
those who are not sure about Superfoods and Wholefood multivitamins firstly a
quick description of both :
What
is a Superfood–
Superfoods are nutrient powerhouses that are
packed with large doses of antioxidants, polyphenols, vitamins, and minerals.
To be classified as a Superfood the food must have a dozen or more unique
properties not just one or two, eating Superfoods also means you can get more
nutrition with less eating.
Superfoods are both a food and a potent
healing tool or medicine; they have elements of both. Eating them increases our
nutrient intake, keeps our immune system healthy, reduces the risk of chronic
disease, prolongs life, and helps your skin glow and you feel healthier
too.
Why Do we need Superfoods ?
Today we need to find new areas for whole and balanced nutrition, because evidence shows
that we can no longer get all the nutrients we need from fruit and vegetable
alone – WHY IS THIS, you ask ?
Because
our soils are over harvested we now have little or no nutrients left in the
soil, therefore our fresh produce does not contain the same nutrients it once
did. They also fight free radicals to help our body eliminate all of the toxins
and chemicals we are exposed to on a daily basis. * This chart shows the
average nutritional loss in foods over a 50 year period
What is a
Wholefood Multivitamin ?
A wholefood Multivitamin is created using simply raw, whole foods, this
means it is as close to nature as you can get.
A wholefood Multivitamin is bioavailable, this means that the nutrients
contained in it are directly absorbed by the body, your body does not have to
work hard to break down the nutrients and none of the nutrients are lost in
absorption.
A Multivitamin
tablet, on the other hand, bear no resemblance to real food. They have NO
enzymes, and they lack a lot of the whole food factors your body looks for when
breaking down and utilizing nutrients. Multivitamins
are synthetically produced and are often full of wax, binders and emulsifiers; some
children’s vitamins even include artificial sweetener
