There are some basic common sense rules of eating, or

children nutrition guidelines

I am providing you a partial list. Nutritional Guidelines – Some guidelines (when followed) will aid your family with certain conditions.

Constipation eating

, for example, is eating foods prepared in a certain way. For instance, many people are helped by dining on dried fruits, cooked fruit, or stewed fruits. Fiber is helpful for constipation because it serves to both soften the stool, and add bulk. Simply focus on eating a wide variety of cooked fruits (See List Below), nuts, whole grains, vegetables and legumes. Eat Bulk: Dried Fruit & Cooked Fruit          constipation eating

Also, it’s a good idea to have the television in your home shut down for a period of time (an hour or so) – this way, your kids cannot hear those cereal pitches, etc.  (avoiding problems at the Store).   Additional Resources:
