Healthy meals for big kid
Despite the fact that till his three years the child is already can eat adult food but we have to remember that this is still a child his body grows and his food should be healthy and balanced.
As for me, I do not allow my son to eat pizza, crackers (I do it myself), chips, etc., he is 5, but I've never let him try mushrooms, I believe that it is very hard to digest. Generally I do not in favor of a "fast food".
Here's approximate menu of my son
Breakfast: Cereal with milk (buckwheat, corn, oats or cream of wheat),or
Cottage cheese with sour cream and honey, or
Omelette with tomatoes, sausage and cheese
Tea or cocoa or coffee with milk to drink
Lunch: Cheesecakes with jam
Tea or cocoa to drink
After he comes home from school - soup or broth with toasts.
Juice or fruit compote to drink
Afternoon snack: Cookies with milk, apple, banana, pear, roll with butter and tea, etc.
Dinner: Fish, chicken cutlet, steak (chicken, pork, etc.) with mashed potatoes (pasta, rice with vegetables, etc.), vegetable stew, pilaf and salad (mainly from fresh vegetables).
Juice to drink
Before going to sleep - a glass of milk
My son loves pizza.. we eat the healthy kind.. (sort of).. and its' funny that you don't let yours have it.. not funny like hah ha youre wrong, but funny how I see it as a healthy meal with a salad etc and others may not.. where as I wouldn't give my kids cookies for a snack..
But I agree.. that their bellies are not big still.. and they should eat what their size should eat not what they want or think they can eat...
