Importance of a Protein Rich Diet for School Students

by andMe Bioactive Beverage 27 Nov 2021
[article] Kids get cranky and dramatic when it comes to eating healthy food, and especially vegetables and fruits. Unfortunately, most parents must be running after their kids with a spoon and bowl for a long time. Sometimes it's not about only eating healthy and tasty; it's about how do you maintain a well-balanced diet chart for your kid. A planned diet that is filled with protein, vitamins, minerals is beneficial for your child's growth.

If your child ages between 4-9yrs, they need 19 grams of protein each day, and those between 9-13 yrs should have at least 34 grams of protein daily. After 14, it depends on the gender; boys need 52 grams of protein and girls like 46grams of protein every day.  

Protein is a nutrient made with 20 Amino acids, and 9 of the essential amino acids can only be derived from our regular diet. Therefore, dairy products like milk, tofu, cheese, yoghurt or meat, chicken, egg and fish could be great sources for daily protein intake.

In addition, protein sources also provide other nutrients like Vitamin E, B, Zinc, Iron and Magnesium. Protein is the building block for the human body. It helps repair the body tissues and also growth in bones, muscles, and organs.

Benefits of protein intake for kids: 

Building life: Protein is one of the basic requirements to build a healthy human body. It helps in growing, replacing, and maintaining the body tissues.  

Boosting metabolism:In the form of enzymes and hormones, protein ensures a healthy body metabolism.  

Growing immunity system:Protein is essential to build up a strong immune system. Especially in the post-covid era, it is necessary to have a strong immunity system to fight bacteria or infections.  

Producing Hemoglobin: Protein also stimulates the production of hemoglobin in the human body, which is an essential component of blood to carry oxygen. Hemoglobin deficiency can cause diseases like Anemia.  

healthy food

What are the high sources of protein? 

  • ➼ A child's tantrums to drink a glass of milk isn't new. But make sure, if not milk, your child is taking enough dairy products like tofu, yoghurt, cottage cheese because dairy food is a great source of protein.  

    ➼ A boiled egg or an omelet for breakfast will give you the energy to kickstart the day. 

    ➼ Those who are strictly vegetarian can eat dry fruits, soy milk, peanut butter, legumes, soy yoghurt as a source of daily protein intake.  

    ➼ Children are meant to eat sweets. So, protein-rich desserts like quinoa pancakes, protein laddoos, or puddings won't do any harm once in a while.

What is Lorem Ipsum? Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum. Why do we use it? It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using 'Content here, content here', making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for 'lorem ipsum' will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).
