7 Harmful Foods We Often Give to Our Children

Posted on

3. Cereals

Flakes, muesli, and other similar foods look very healthy in commercials which claim that they contain a lot of vitamins and minerals. In fact, these foods don’t contain any healthy elements. But what they do contain is a lot of sugar. All of the healthy elements of corn, wheat, and oats are removed during production and only carbohydrates are left.

It’s very hard to satiate hunger with this food, so just a few hours later, the child will be hungry again. A good replacement is oatmeal. You can add fruit and nuts to make it more attractive for children.

4. Honey

Children before the age of 2 shouldn’t eat honey. This is not only about a possible allergic reaction but sometimes honey contains bacteria that can lead to a serious infectious disease called botulism.

5. Grapes

Grapes contain vitamins and minerals that children need. But there is a reason why children shouldn’t be allowed to eat them: they are big and slippery and a child can choke on them.

Also, grapes are very difficult for a child’s digestive tract to process. Bananas are a great replacement for children younger than 2.
