Do you pack enough nutrition in your childs lunch-box?
- 3 Months ago
From Mumbai to Tokyo, Asian children are towering above their parents. But many are also growing fatter and Asians are succumbing to `Western' diseases as they consume greasy hamburgers
Take a look into some of the lunch boxes of school children and you will find potato chips and a pastry or chicken sandwich with no other accompaniment or oily pulao and poories, sometimes only cash for the children to buy whatever they like. Working parents say that they do not have time to look into the nutrition their children require and house-maids do not know what the child should be given from the wide variety of goodies in the kitchen. So, the easiest way out is to give whatever the child asks for. Mothers who do not work too, give in to the child's stubbornness and ignore nutrition in the lunch box.
