Sometimes things are right in the middle of sleep and the timing could be wrong. I’ve been doing it for years but never felt as bad as when I took a nap. I never knew about the affect restlessness has on the body and now I want to do some regular spa and yoga to explore the relationship between restlessness and relaxation.
There is a connection between stress, sleep and eating. Actually we all do need sleep and rest to function properly but we should also be very careful in choosing the times we eat by paying attention to the timing. We should eat well not just arrive at the restaurant or café and order the food we want although this can be done. There are ways to make sure that there is enough food in our diets and that we naturally get the recommended amount of nutrients in our daily menus.
Eating properly or volume eating is an important part of living a full, healthy life and it needs to be taught in schools. There needs to be more emphasis on how important good eating is. There should be less emphasis on what types of food are good and more emphasis should be given on eating enough and the variety of foods we eat. Adults should eat healthy, Support those who are trying to lose weight, but not through fad diets. Learn more about nutrition and more about healthy living. There is a whole range of information and support online.
Children should learn about nutrition and how it affects their bodies. They should learn about the food groups and how those food groups fit together in terms of nutrition. They should learn how to eat naturally and not the types of food a lot of people eat. There is a lot of information online about energy zones and natural eating that you can look at for kids. Even if they are old enough to read the labels, children can learn a lot from reading food labels and will always be held accountable for their eating habits.
It is also important to get kids involved in family meals. They should be the ones that see their parents eating and sometimes they should be the ones to prepare all the meals and bring them to the table. This will help them to develop interest in different kinds of foods and become more adventurous when it comes to food.
Experts say that most kids won’t say no to a dessert, so you might as well get them involved in food preparation. Although they may not want to try their hand at cooking, they will at least ask to be served potato or macaroni salads. You can use strawberry or grape seed salad with them as well as different flavored mushrooms. Let them help cutting cookies and bread, help to mix the ingredients of a cookie and help to pick the ingredients out.
So, if you are looking for creative ways to encourage your child to eat, you might want to do this. Even if they are reluctant, they will at least learn to eat better and appreciate food more. They will also learn to enjoy different tastes and textures. So don’t push them into a cookie jar. Get them to taste bite sized pieces of fruit and watch them flush the fruit down their throats ad enjoy the pleasure of eating it. The lesson here is that children will be more easily won over to your cooking if you treat them to several small simple meals of pleasure every day.
