At this stage, children need high quality food as they are in full development of their physical and mental faculties. You should never put aside their proper food, even though sometimes you don’t have the time or inclination, you should make an effort to maintain food quality in children.

In a nutritious menu for school stage, the healthiest foods in the diet and recommended, and the dosages and amounts appropriate considering the child's physical activity and age should always be considered.

To follow the below menu examples in their optimal way, you need to consider the best thing for a child is to make 4 or 5 meals a day, which should preferably be distributed as follows and including recommended foods and suggested rations for each day:

Breakfast: fruit (in juice or salad), cereal (oatmeal, tapioca, wheat, etc.), milk (preferably vegetable), oilseeds, wheat bread.
Lunch: a sandwich or a more consistent food such as eggs, omelets, pancakes, tuna salad, etc.
Food: soup, broth, cooked with fish or chicken, fresh salad, vegetables, pasta, etc.
Snack: bread, fruit salad,
Dinner: vegetable salad, milk, cereal, whole bread, sandwiches, etc.
Between meals: if the child is hungry between these meals, you should offer fruit, vegetable or cereal bars, which is a good supply of energy and nutrients. Avoid frying food, processed, and added with coloring and additives that have no nutritional value.

Food rations and recommended:

  • Fruit: three servings per day

NOTE: Remember not to cook much food as it loses nutritional value. Fruits and vegetables should be eaten raw in salads or preferably juice. And usually prefer to consume whole grains, even though the processed are more popular, remember that education of the palate begins at this age and whole grains are excellent amount of fiber and nutrients.

General advices

If your child has no appetite, never force him/her to eat. The reasons why a child does not eat can be very varied: lack of physical activity, depression, anxiety, eating chips, soda or candy between meals, etc. Blackmailing to force him to eat won’t do much, it's always best to try to find the cause that takes away the appetite.

Avoid in their diet: fried, animal meats, sodas and sugary drinks, refined flour and refined sugar-sweetened foods, processed and all kinds of junk food. Do not exaggerate in giving pasta and milk.

Try not to mix many foods at a meal, and do not give sweetened drinks. Beverages must be at lunchtime preferably pure water or some herb infusions.

You know, I am really appalled when I look at school menues (and when I recount my own personal school menu experience), and see how terribly children eat. They are not educated AT ALL about the consequences of dietary choices...or even HOW to make healthy choices! When I went to high school we had fast food, pizza, and snacks for lunch...AT SCHOOL!!!

My son is 5 years old now and he?s going to school, it?s amazing how the times goes and goes, well, I was thinking on introduce him a healthier diet because kids don?t get enough nutrients with the food that they consume in school and other places, so I think it?s best to prepare homemade food and send it to our kinds in their lunch. I?m going to try the diet and see if my son can handle it.
