CHILDHOOD OBESITY IS THE No.1 HEALTH CONCERN AMONG PARENTS IN THE U.S.
The epidemic of obesity among children and adolescents is now widely regarded as one of the most important public health problems in the US. Most experts agree that the solution will involve changes in both diet and physical activity, in order to affect energy balance. For diet, this means a reduction in energy from current consumption levels. Although reduction in energy intake from any source could lead to weight change, it would seem imprudent to advise children to cut down on key nutrient-bearing food groups, such as fruits, vegetables, whole grains, fat-free milk, and lean meats. This is especially true given that solid fats and added sugars are consumed in amounts far in excess of allowance levels.
As a result, parenthood is filled with questions. Is my baby gaining enough weight? Is it normal that my baby likes particular food one day, and hates it the next? What exactly should I feed my baby and when?
No wonder we are all nervous!
We know these questions well. When it comes to your baby's health, what's put in their body is critical to their development.
We couldn't believe that when it comes to feeding your baby, you can either spend the time making (and cleaning up!) food yourself or buy highly-processed jars and pouches from the store. There are million resources and countless products in the store, but it’s hard-enough time finding room in parent’s schedule to research the best foods to feed kids at every meal.
We thought this is unfair. Quality nutrition should be accessible to everyone. That's why we created All Day Meal Kid’s meal prep Program, a comprehensive nutrition solution to give you the peace of mind you're feeding not just the best food, but the right food and (hopefully) make your life just a bit easier.
HOW IT WORKS
Estimated amounts of calories needed to maintain energy balance for various gender and age groups of kids at three different levels of physical activity:
Sedentary means a lifestyle that includes only the light physical activity associated with typical day-to-day life.
Moderately active means a lifestyle that includes physical activity equivalent to walking about 1.5 to 3 miles per day at 3 to 4 miles per hour, in addition to the light physical activity associated with typical day-to-day life
Active means a lifestyle that includes physical activity equivalent to walking more than 3 miles per day at 3 to 4 miles per hour, in addition to the light physical activity associated with typical day-to-day life.
Knowing activity level and taking into account the parameters and age of your child, we can create the right nutritional plan for him/her.
