Where only the best goes in, only better will result. This old maxim still holds true, especially for children who have much more developed instincts: What our little ones like, they get. Because children usually have a fairly good idea of what the multisensory experience of eating should be like. They know intuitively which foods they need in any given moment and which of them they cannot tolerate. Children also have an innate feeling of hunger and thirst.
But every child is unique, so nutrition should be tailored to their individual needs. For this reason, the food at the buffet at Das Bayrischzell offers a wonderful opportunity for kids to put together their menu of choice, to combine food according to what they feel like and how much - and how often - their body needs it.
However, nutrition also has a lot to do with culture, habit and with motivation. It is therefore important to introduce children to a healthy, nutritious diet at an early age. The food that children enjoy should be rich in vitamins and trace elements, as well as seasonal and regionally-soured. And the energy content should be adjusted accordingly for the child.
As many foods as possible that children like should be taken into consideration, but vegetables and fruit should also be properly integrated. They should not just be side dishes, but serve as an essential part of the daily menu. Treats like cake or sweets should be allowed – provided they are enjoyed in moderation.
In addition to the culinary pleasure factor, the food consumed also causes a chain reaction of effects that should be as positive and stress-free.
- A diet rich in protein and calcium in infancy promotes bone growth.
- Vitamins and minerals promote children's cognitive and motor development.
- A balanced diet is very important for the immune system and metabolism.
- Poor nutrition can lead to deficiency symptoms even in children and thus to unwelcome disorders such as headaches and stomach aches.
- In the case of ADHD, science now agrees that a lot can be regulated through diet.
- Eating has an effect on a child's mental condition. Food can interfere with the body's own control system and thus trigger undesirable reactions.
