Autumn feeding for children


The summer is over, and the return to work, school, and routine has begun. In a general way, spaces are opened for rushing and to make way for a new rhythm of life, more accelerated, with fewer hours of sun, and with more physical and mental wear, both for adults and children.

For this reason, it is necessary for food to accompany all these changes, providing enough energy for our defenses to be strengthened and renewed.

It is advisable that we know the foods that can offer us a greater amount of nutrients that will give us better health, and that will protect us from colds, flu and colds that usually occur at this time of year.

A rich and healthy diet requires dedication and knowledge. The foods typical of each season can become a more varied and nutritious diet, with a more prominent flavor. Summer fruits and vegetables contain a lot of water. Those of autumn and winter contain more vitamin C, and those of spring, thanks to their variety of colors, provide us with many other vitamins.

At the end of summer, we have to say goodbye to peaches, plums, watermelons, melons and figs, because autumn is a season where the pomegranate, quince, custard apple, orange, mandarin and grape are the main fruits . The citric acid contained in pomegranate and citrus fruits has a disinfectant action, in addition to stimulating the action of vitamin C.

As for the grape, it is a fruit with many calories due to its high amount of sugars. On the other hand, it has an antioxidant action, and a large amount of iron. With these two fruits you can prepare salad dishes, fruit salads, etc.

In addition to pomegranates and grapes, oranges, pears, bananas, tangerines and apples, avocados, grapefruits are also seasonal fruits, apart from nuts such as chestnuts and walnuts, which are typical of this season.

With the arrival of autumn, we return to rescue a large number of vegetables. Mushrooms, Brussels sprouts, artichokes, cauliflower, pumpkins, zucchini, and aubergines are the main autumn vegetables, while vegetables such as onion, lettuce, carrots and leek, can be found all year. Cabbage and red cabbage also arrive.

Mushrooms can be eaten alone, sautéed, with garlic, grilled, boiled, steamed, mixed in scrambled eggs, as a garnish, and accompanied by pasta, rice or other vegetables. The caloric value of mushrooms is low. The mushroom is a food rich in vegetable proteins of high biological value, in vitamins of group B, and minerals such as iodine.

Eggplants also contain very few calories. They exert an antioxidant and toning action. Its consumption stimulates the proper functioning of the liver and the gallbladder, favoring the digestion of fats. You can consume aubergines in the most varied forms: stewed, stuffed, baked, battered, fried, roasted, in creams, alone or accompanied by meats.

Brussels sprouts as well as cauliflower are rich in vitamin C and citric acid. They stimulate the action of the immune system and prevent some degenerative diseases. They admit various ways of elaboration and are soft and delicate on the palate.
