grow healthy® Food Program
A child needs nutrients everyday to nourish his body, emotions, and brain to grow and develop. grow healthy®‘s comprehensive, balanced nutritional program includes eight food groups that build a foundation from the bottom up.
Breast milk, fed exclusively for the first six months, and then complemented with other foods until a child is at least one year of age, is the ideal nutrition for a child’s optimal growth and development. Food from the following groups supports healthy breast milk production.
Whole grains offer many major nutrients: complex carbohydrates, proteins, fats, vitamins, minerals, and fiber, without artificial enrichment. Uncracked whole grains remain intact, preserving their vitality and longevity. They taste delicious and provide a sense of wholesome satisfaction, while supporting immunity and healthy sleep. For best digestion, sprout or soak grains, then cook, and puree them to an age-appropriate texture.
Vegetables that are fresh, local, organic and grown in season have vitality and flavor for helping children cultivate a taste for natural sweetness. They offer vitamins, minerals, and fiber and are most digestible when cooked. Sea vegetables provide a multitude of minerals.
Protein-rich foods are essential to provide energy and strength for healthy growth and development. Both plant-based sources, such as beans, nuts, and seeds and animal-based proteins including fish, eggs, yogurt, and poultry provide energy and nutrients. Avoid animal foods that have been raised with antibiotics or growth hormones. Fruit offers natural sweetness and is a delicious treat for satisfaction. Serve cooked and separately from grains or proteins for optimal digestion. Select from your climatic zone, if possible.
Fermented foods have probiotics to help build a strong immune system. Natural pickles, yogurt, miso, and sprouted grains and beans can aid digestion and offer healthy bacteria to boost immunity.
Seasonings offer sensory satisfaction as well as nutritional value. Quality fats in unrefined oils, such as sesame, olive, or flax seed oil are essential and vital for health. Monitoring the quality and quantity of your baby’s salt intake helps regulate many body functions and affects food cravings. Because babies receive salt through breast milk or formula, added salt is not necessary until around 12 months. Choose quality, unrefined salt without chemical additives and pay attention to the impact of salt intake on your child’s condition. Natural sweeteners such as brown rice syrup have a lower glycemic index than refined sugars and are easy to digest and assimilate.
Beverages provide fluids for hydration. For your child’s first few months breast milk or formula is the primary beverage. As he begins to become physically active and eat solid foods, beverages such as soup broth, herbal teas, diluted fruit juice, rice milk, or coconut water provide hydration, nutrients, and satisfaction.
