In today's quarantine realities, when in most schools canteens have stopped working and there is no reason to count on hot meals, parents quickly start to think of what to put a child in a lunch box so that it is not only tasty, but also useful.

Nutrition is a very serious thing that affects not only the learning process, but also the nervous state of the child. The more a child consumes sweets, the more irritable, aggressive and anxious he becomes .

What kind of snack is dangerous for a child's health
Sweets in the form of school snacks are especially dangerous. At recess, when a child eats a chocolate bar, cookies or drinks juice, his insulin rises sharply, and physical activity increases. But he goes to class, sits down and cannot concentrate, calm down. The child is forced to endure the need to move for 45 minutes, and then at the end of the lesson he falls asleep, because insulin drops sharply and activity is greatly reduced. The brain of a person, and even more so of a child, may be enough to increase the activity of those carbohydrates found in vegetables and fruits.

Natalya is glad that the era of grandmothers worried by hungry grandchildren is already receding into the background, and that her son can determine for himself when he is already full. In addition, we live in a time when there are many different products that allow us to cook healthy, but tasty food. The main thing is to find your own effective recipe.
