Are you having kids who are crazy for the food filled with salt? Nowadays, kids’ list of favorite foods includes Pizza, bread, chicken nuggets and pasta. As per the report of the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), these foods are loaded with salt.
In the recent report, the Centers for Disease Control finds more than 40 percent of sodium consumed by kids comes from processed foods. According to CDC, American children were set up to eat about 3300mg of sodium a day without touching a salt shaker. Government guidelines recommend that the kids should eat less than 2300mg/day.
We all are fully aware of the fact that the school lunch including cheese, pizza, mystery meat, chicken nuggets and other creamy, cheesy, often unidentifiable dishes appeal students’ taste buds as comfort food. Various studies have shown that such school lunches not only lack nutrition but also add up to obesity and thwart students’ performance in the classroom.
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention states that; infant obesity has more than doubled in children and quadrupled in teenagers in the precedent 30 years. Actually, in 2012, more than 1/3 of children and teenagers in the United States were flabby or obese due to the consumption of such unhealthy foods. The CDC also claims that the lack of sufficient consumption of specific foods, such as fruits, vegetables or dairy products, is connected with lower grades among students. And deficits of specific nutrients (i.e., vitamins A, B6, B12, C, folate, iron, zinc and calcium) are linked with lower grades and higher rates of absenteeism and tardiness among students.
