For moms, do you really follow whatâ€™s listed on the food pyramid, you know the food group guide, when you prepare food for your family? I donâ€™t do that but at least I know what are the nutritious food to give my kids. When I prepare meat, fish and veggie dishes I make sure that it’s their favorite and easy to cook. Their favorite dishes lately are Pork Sinigang, fried fish, and mussels.
If I will refer at the food guide, their favorite food falls on the protein group of the food pyramid, which promotes growth. Aside from genes from their Dadâ€™s side, now I have this food group to thank for their height. 🙂
In the US, Iâ€™ve read that parents who have problems with their childrenâ€™s size seek out medical help to address the problem. Some doctors, according to the website, prescribe human growth hormone for children that â€œappear to be growing more slowly than normalâ€.
Iâ€™m not sure if I will allow my kids to take growth hormone. I think itâ€™s best if I will stick to giving them proper nourishment than depend on artificial growth enhancer.
