Healthy Foods for Kids to gain weight. Weight Gain Recipes for Kids. Children tend to eat fatty foods like junk, chips, and whatever is easily available. They eat less fruits and vegetables and often skip breakfast which is the most important meal of the day. With right guidance and nutrition education children can learn to prefer healthy foods such as milk, eggs, green and orange fruits and vegetables, whole grain and unrefined cereals.

Healthy eating habits should start right from childhood and it is the parent’s duty to inculcate these healthy habits in the kid. Most children are picky eaters and do not consume enough and therefore their growth is slowed or stunted and they become lethargic.

Maintaining an ideal weight is important for kids, and for this it is important to give them nutritious high calorie foods as they give them a lot of energy and keeps them active. Put the glow back on their faces with energy-dense recipes. It is important that children learn to avoid unhealthy and refined food items right from their young age. Unhealthy foods like refined carbohydrates, high sugar beverages, deep fried foods as they contain trans-fats cause ill health conditions like diabetes, dyslipidemia, heart problems, etc.
