Default Child's Diet Plan

Personally, I don't have a child, but this was something I'm pondering. I see parents with rather large children, and I see parents with average size children, and I was thinking....what sort of diet plan or food do they make for their kids to get them to that size?

Personally, if I have a kid, I'm going to give the kid a lot of vegetables and not go out to eat all, and I'm totally going to watch over their diet so that they'll get a lot of nutrition.

What do you think? Am I too stingy, or is this a really good idea?

children crave a good balance of food. i personally would not give my young child soda or a bunch of candy they can have some but not that much, then i plan on cooking so that way they dont have to eat that much processed or junk fast food i want my children to be an average weight and to be healthy.

sometimes it's easy said then done. don't get me wrong thoguh, it's definitely do able but it's hard. i hate how our food chain works.. you get a hamburger at mcdonald it's a dollar but a salad is 5. buying organic food at the market is double the price of food pumped with enhancements.

I have to agree. Easier said than done.....especially if both parents are really busy, you'll be more inclined to eating at fast food places.

However, I still say that if you have to go to fast food places, you just have to eat certain foods....like salads or small portions, at the very least.

I would say, personally, I would try to figure out snacks that are healthy for them. Maybe nuts, fruits, some veggies. Try to steer them early on with healthy snacks and foods, but also monitor and be hard with how much they eat, that is the best thing IMO.

But yeah, you have to be really disciplined for this to work.

Healthy snacks are a must.. it can be anything from carrot sticks, to a small salad. but whne you feed them if they eat a salad before everymeal it will help their bodys to digest their food better and keep the weight off. NO soda when there super young and no candy. i think it just depends also how active you are and how active your children are.. my neice and nephew are both super tiny and they eat so much junk food but there super active so they burn away all those calories.

Yeah. I also forgot to consider the activity that children do during the day before their diet.

Hmmm....I think it also depends on how hard they work, or what they do. nowadays, kids are becoming increasingly more sedentary, so a good diet and working out is even more essential than ever before.

However, I have to say that even if they do work hard outside, a good diet can only make them stronger in the end.

i think if your child is able to exercise then they should be able to eat alot of food.. they are saying that we need to cut back on the type of foods we feed out childrent because were making them fat.. well NEWS FLASH. if children get enough physical activity then their bodys matabolize n burn off all that fat so therefore they are able to maintain a healthy weight and lifestyle.

i also notice that there's a lot of overweight kids nowadays. i guess due to the recession and working parents .. they just don't have enough time to give their kids the proper vitamins. doing fruit smoothies in the morning for breakfast is always good.. blending up good vegetable smoothies.. staying away from candies.. and lots of play time outside. kids just sit in front of the tv or computer and no exercise.
