7 ways to help boost your child's energy

7 ways to help boost your child's energy


If the teachers indicate that your child seems to tire easily or find that the energy levels of your teenage child fall gradually, there are some nutritional checks you can do before or in parallel with your target audience to a doctor.

  • Water

Especially in times of hot weather or generally when very active, many children do not drink enough water, ending up being dehydrated.

  • Quantity & quality of food

It is very important for the child to eat as much as needed, no more or less. You must be sure that they made a varied and balanced diet. If the child is selective with food and excludes various foods, it may be debilitating. This means that it may lack essential amino nutrients such as vitamin B, starch or carbohydrates or protein.

If it is heavier then you can include bread and whole grain cereals in the diet, which create a sense of fullness faster.

  • Iron

Blood cells carry oxygen to the blood as our cells use it to produce energy. If you have noticed that your child, in addition to fatigue, looks pale, has headaches and is stunned, visit your doctor immediately. In the case of anemia, the doctor may suggest a supplement.

For your part, you can enrich your meals with foods rich in iron, such as red meat and green vegetables. Give it also enough vitamin C to help your body absorb more iron. 

  • Sugar

If your child is eating a lot of foods with a high glycemic index or drinking a lot of packed juice, the sugar levels may skyrocket. This results in the child being tired for a long time before bedtime. Put more low or moderate glycemic index foods into their life.

  • Fiber

If the child receives a lot of fiber, then it can feel saturation before eating well enough. In this case, replace with white rice or spaghetti, while you can choose a white bread with wheat grains.

  • Meal schedule

A busy schedule in a child's life is often an obstacle to sitting down, some hours, and eating properly. If it stays long enough, then its energy levels fall. Make sure to eat healthy snacks, such as whole grains, fruits, whole grains, and peanut butter.

  • Exercise & Activities

For a child to live and grow with maximum energy, it needs to eat well, drink enough fluids, run and sleep well. Give it space and time to go out in the fresh air for some intense exercises that enhance the heart rate or find a sport or activity that ensures all the above.
