If you’re going to cook for the family there are some things you should know besides the phones number for the local pizza place. As you know a diet can dictate how you feel, rest and think. Proper nutrition is detrimental for a healthy lifestyle. When cooking dinner, or any other meal, for your children incorporate fresh fruits and vegetables in the meal. Eating foods with high water content will benefit your family tremendously.
If you ever visited the hospital you’ll notice they will always have an intravenous infusion or, I.V., placed in everyone’s arm or hand. The solution most commonly used in I.V.’s is saline which is salt and water. The intravenous drip is used mostly to correct dehydration in patients. All hospitals initially rule out dehydration from most incoming patients.
Serving your family foods with high water content is essential when you are preparing a meal: for dinner always include a fresh raw salad; when preparing lunch pack a piece of fruit instead of cookies or crackers; for breakfast include fresh fruits in their cereal or on their pancakes. Whatever meal you are preparing stay away from foods with additives and preservatives. Additives and Preservatives are poisonous to your family’s body. If you include plenty of fresh fruits and vegetable in the family meals, then they’ll love you for it.
