Tips for Parents and Children on Healthy Ideas for School Lunches
Aug 19, 2013 - 4:10:45 PM
In addition to finding healthy food choices, some parents face the challenge of providing meals for their children with digestive conditions such as Crohn's disease or irritable bowel syndrome. "Try to avoid sending trigger foods," explains Dr. Aliza B. Solomon, a pediatric gastroenterologist at NewYork-Presbyterian/Komansky Center for Children's Health. "For someone with active Crohn's disease, this might mean avoiding high fiber food or fresh fruit. Children with irritable bowel should avoid foods with polyols, such as sorbitol and xylitol, often found in sugar-free gum, which can lead to bloating."
Nutritionists at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital offer more tips on making your kids' lunches healthier:
o Go shopping with them
o Let them help you prepare meals
o Encourage new choices
o Offer them a variety
o Embrace their curiosity and creativity
