Healthy Eating Benefits; Make Your Kids #EatLikeAPro

If there is one thing I wanted for the my kids is to have the best in life. That includes providing them what they need and making them healthy meals. My main goal before I had my eldest was to make my children eat healthy. 

In promoting healthy eating habits, Beko, the Official Partner of the Everyday, launches its Eat Like A Pro advocacy in the Philippines. The campaign aims to help parents feed their children healthier food. This effort is in support of the company's current global initiative os inspiring and educating families, especially the young ones, on the importance of a healthy, balanced lifestyle. 

To help eliminate poor eating habits, Beko listed some of the benefits of encouraging your child to #EatLikeAPro.

Boosts Immune System. Fruits and vegetables offer different vitamins and minerals so it is important for your children to have a complete meal with variety of it so they could get all the nutrients they need to boost their immune system. Tomatoes, carrots, citrus fruits , berries and dark green leafy vegetables, are abundant in immunity-boosting phytonutrients which help the body create more white blood cells responsible in warding off infection and illness. 

Fewer calories compared to processed or fast foods. Replacing unhealthy sugary snacks and fat-laden foods with fruits and vegetables can help reduce the risk of obesity among children. It is important to develop the kids' healthy eating habits by making their favorite dishes healthier. 

Helps improve academic performance. Kids with imbalanced nutrition are more likely to perform poorly in school. Failing to get the required amount of vitamins, minerals and other nutrients for health could lead to focus loss, fatigue, and a loss of concentration. Journal of School Health suggests that good nutrition impact's children's academic performance by identifying specific dietary factors. Particularly, students with an increased fruit and vegetable intake and lower caloric intake of fat were significantly less likely to fail a literacy assessment. 

Mr. Dyeun Za of BEKO
Fruits and vegetables are important part of a well-balanced diet. However, a report recently released by (FNRI) Food Nutrition Research Institute revealed that Filipinos' intake of fruits and vegetable is declining while their consumption of meat and eggs in increasing. Kids are among those who are most affected by these habits, especially that they are passed on to them.

To jumpstart their advocacy, Beko is set to conducts Eat Like A Pro: The Cook-Off, a contest for a parent-child tandem, which will show how they can work together in preparing delicious, budget-friendly, and healthy meals for the whole family. 

Participants should bring heir preferred healthy dish, which will be tried by the designated judges who will select the final 8 tandems. They will be required to bring the dish recipe together with the cooking procedure.

The eat Like A Pro champion will be determined via cook-off which will happen on August 31, 2018 from 10am to 7:30 pm at SM Southmall Activity Center.
