2 mins to read Apr 1, 2021

IMPORTANT NOTICE: The World Health Organization (WHO) recommends exclusive breastfeeding for the first 6 months and continued breastfeeding for as long as possible. Growing up milks are formulated to meet nutrition needs of healthy young children older than 1 year and should not be fed to infants.


Are you looking for healthy foods to add to your child’s daily diet and provide his body with necessary elements to rev up metabolism and enable him to control his weight and enjoy being healthy?


You are in the right place, then. In this article,the editorial team provides you with a list of the main metabolism-boosting foods that may enhance your toddler’s diet… Have a look and benefit!    

Fresh fruits

Any fresh fruits in season may bear lots of special healthy benefits. Each bite can provide your kid with vitamin C, Beta-carotene, vitamin B, and some minerals and calcium. 

To double the benefits of metabolism, we recommend grapefruit, cranberries or blueberries, which are rich in antioxidants and other nutrients.


Oatmeal contains a very high level of carbohydrates, soluble and insoluble fibers as well as vitamin B complex, iron, zinc and calcium.


Broccoli is considered one of the best and most nutritious vegetables during your child’s growing phase. It contains a large amount of calcium, in addition to a various mix of vitamin B complex, fibers, potassium and beta-carotene.  


Your active child needs protein to continue growing. That said, vegetables, eggs, fish, poultry, lean meat and soy products may be the best available choices.

Whole grain products

By serving your child whole grain foods, you guarantee him the best nutrition ever, since whole grains contain vitamins, minerals and fibers. The main examples of whole grain products are brown rice and whole wheat bread.   


Give your child regular yogurt (free of any added sugar), flavored by fresh fruits if you want so it would be an easy-to-digest meal that’s rich in calcium and probiotics.


Add water to this list of varied, healthy nutrition sources. Water plays a vital role in hydrating your child’s body and motivating his internal organs to better perform, including those responsible for the metabolic process, from digestion till the release of energy.
