Eat Right, Eat Smart

Hello Prime Moms! We are happy to see you here again. We hope you’re all having a great time like us.

Ready to learn something really important and useful for the whole family? Let’s go!As they say, it is not always about what you eat. It’s also about how much we eat. Eating right at the right amounts. Knowing the proper allowances of food is essential in attaining balanced nutrition. Specially for our kids.The food essentials (fruits, vegetables, grains, protein foods, and dairy) should be properly portioned so we get the ideal nutritional allowance. The food plate chart below, developed by the Department of Science and Technology (DOST) suggests the right amount food essentials kids should have only a daily basis.5f1387572e747f9d64ecc8b37957612da2770f4b91439ae6d113a91f1ff7d13b

Papaya helps prevent asthma and aids digestion. This yummy, refreshing drink can be served any time of the day. Each serving covers contains half a cup of papaya, which can stand for the the fruit component of a meal.

VEGETABLES: TUNA BOAT

This fun-looking dish can be served as a side dish or even a healthy after-school snack!  It contains bell peppers and cucumber both of which are rich in potassium. Tomatoes on the other hand are good for immunity boosting. It’s combination of vegetables and protein helps fill in a lot of our daily nutritional needs in a fresh, easy to eat way.

GRAINS: SCRAMBLED EGGS WITH CORN, GOAT CHEESE, AND TOMATO

Here is a healthy twist to the scrambled eggs! This meal is very flexible as it allows to you change the protein component of the meal (beef, pork, fish, etc.). a great compliment to the protein value of eggs. The corn in the dish fills in our grain essentials and also promotes good digestion.
