Nutritious Meals for Kids

Nutritious Meals for Kids

Children require essential vitamins and minerals to grow into healthy adults. However, many children have bad eating habits, which may cause them to experience malnutrition. According to the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health, “Undernutrition is one of the most important public health problems, affecting more than 900 million individuals around the World.” LifeSpring Home Nutrition offers nutritious meals for kids through an extensive catalog of healthy meal options. Parents and their children can benefit from weekly meal deliveries.

Why Do Kids Need Nutritious Meals?

Children need nourishing meals every day to ensure they get the proper balance of vitamins and minerals required to help their bodies grow. According to the previously mentioned article by the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health, undernutrition “is responsible for the highest mortality rate in children and has long-lasting physiologic effects, including an increased susceptibility to fat accumulation mostly in the central region of the body, lower fat oxidation, lower resting and postprandial energy expenditure, insulin resistance in adulthood, hypertension, [dyslipidemia] and a reduced capacity for manual work, among other impairments.”

Some families may live in a food desert or not have access to the resources they need to meet their children’s specific dietary needs. Meal deliveries provide parents with a healthy alternative for their kids. In addition, some children have a higher risk of developing health issues like obesity, diabetes, and heart disease. Eating balanced meals in childhood reduces a child’s risk of experiencing health problems in adulthood.

The Dangers of Childhood Obesity

Childhood obesity is one of the most preventable and damaging health conditions children face today. The effects of childhood obesity follow people throughout their lives. According to Children, “In United States, 19.7% of children and adolescents aged 2–19 years were classified as obese . . . The increasing trend of children who are overweight or obese is concerning because childhood obesity is associated with many adverse health outcomes and diseases, such as obesity in adulthood, diabetes, heart disease . . . and metabolic syndrome.”

Managing Childhood Diabetes With Nutritious Meals for Kids

Millions of children are diagnosed with diabetes. Parents must monitor what they eat to ensure children receive the right balance of nutrients and sugars. Meal planning throughout the week can reduce symptoms for children with type II diabetes. Weight loss is an integral part of managing diabetes for obese children. According to MedlinePlus, “Meal plans should consider the amount of calories children need to grow . . . The goal should be able to reach a healthy weight by eating healthy foods and getting more activity.” Parents can use medically tailored meals from LifeSpring Home Nutrition to help their children develop healthy eating habits.

Nutritious Meals for Kids Promote Childhood Health

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), “Healthy eating in childhood and adolescence is important for proper growth and development and to prevent various health conditions.” Promoting healthy dietary routines in childhood helps younger individuals learn portion control and nutritional balance. LifeSpring Home Nutrition allows families to establish healthy eating habits without the extra work of shopping, preparing, cooking, and cleaning up after meals. Every dish is carefully designed to ensure children and adults have access to nourishing whole foods.

LifeSpring Home Nutrition Offers Meals for Kids

LifeSpring Home Nutrition provides meals for people of all ages. Families can receive weekly deliveries tailored to the needs of children, adults, and seniors with specific health concerns or dietary requirements. Some people live in areas with fewer fresh foods and healthy meal options. Meal deliveries ensure everyone in the local community has access to the same nutritious foods and a variety of meal choices.

The dietician-approved meals do the following:

LifeSpring Home Nutrition offers fun kids meals, including chicken nuggets, to ensure children learn to enjoy eating healthy meals. Making meals fun, delicious, and nutritious makes children more likely to eat less unhealthy foods and drinks. Avoiding processed foods and added sugars lowers the risk of childhood obesity and helps kids learn to make better meal choices.

How Can Parents Ensure Their Children Eat Healthy?

Many children struggle with unhealthy eating habits due to a lack of access to healthier foods or poor eating habits. According to the previously mentioned article by MedlinePlus, “Empty calories from added sugars and solid fats contribute to 40% of daily calories for children and adolescents age 2–18 years—affecting the overall quality of their diets.”

The majority of empty calories come from the following foods:

Parents can help their children eat healthier by reducing access to empty calories and introducing healthier alternatives like 100% fruit juice and whole foods into their diets. Weekly meal deliveries ensure parents have pre-made, nutrient-rich foods for their children. Pre-made dishes take some of the guesswork out of helping children eat healthier. LifeSpring Home Nutrition encourages parents to educate themselves on how to improve their children’s health through diet and exercise. Parents can help children identify and replace bad eating habits with better alternatives.

Children need a balanced diet to ensure they develop into healthy adults. Malnutrition, obesity, and other health issues impact a child’s growth and overall health. LifeSpring Home Nutrition offers nutritious meals for children and adults. To learn more about our meals and how to receive services, call us today at (800) 798-5767

I had a catastrophic event requiring a long hospital stay and at discharge my HMO offered Lifespring meal services. Initially, I was offered a puree diet and then as I improved a regular diet. Staff were kind, patient, and their supervisor, Christina was extremely accommodating. This is an amazing company who goes the extra mile to ensure patients receive their meals promptly. The food is delicious with a variety of meals. I would highly recommend Lifespring.

Balanced meals excellent customer service. Thank you
I've been receiving Lifespring meals for the past several years. I find them to be fresh, convenient, and delicious! The meals are both balanced and nutritious, and, because they are prepared fresh, and then flash frozen; all one needs is a microwave! Delivery is prompt and courteous, and if ever you want to make a change, the friendly office staff is available by phone. Thank you, Lifespring! 🤗😘
