We could prevent cancer, strokes, heart disease, and diabetes if we start teaching our kids better nutrition from day one.


1. AVOCADO: A great source of fats, which aid in child's development and growth.
2. EGGS: Easy to prepare and versatile, and rich in protein and choline, which is vital for brain development.
3. SEAWEED: Chock full of iodine which is necessary for healthy thyroid function.
4. ACAI BERRIES: Full of fatty acids, proteins, and antioxidants, and also very tasty in a morning smoothie.
5. FIBER: Kids need between 19-38 grams per day, to slow down absorption of sugar and keep intestines clean, but most aren't getting enough---oatmeal, fruit, veggies, flax seeds, beans, peas, and legumes.
6. COTTAGE CHEESE: (FULL FAT) One cup contains 9 grams of fat-which doesn't make kids fat, concentrated protein and vitamins and minerals to help build strong bones.
7. NUT BUTTER: Delicious almond, cashew, walnut, or hazelnut butters provide proteins, healthy fats, fiber, vitamins, minerals, and phytochemicals that help prevent cancer.
8. BANANAS: Yummy and rich in potassium, good for healthy blood pressure, arteries, bones and heart.
9. SPINACH: An excellent source of iron, calcium, folic acid and vitamins A and C--all great for growing bones and brain.
10. SWEET POTATO: Packed with vitamins B, C, and E, calcium, potassium, iron, and fiber, as well as complex carbohydrates to keep energy levels stable.
