Dietitians recommend omitting toxic ingredients from your diet such as hydrogenated fats, high fructose corn syrup, and artificial sweeteners as they contribute to diabetes, obesity and other health conditions. Consuming whole grains and fiber-rich whole fruits and vegetables provide vital nutrients and combat cravings for sugar and fat. Fiber also steadies blood glucose and insulin levels, which helps prevent diabetes and obesity. Be sure to increase your child’s fiber intake slowly, because a sudden spike in fiber can shock the digestive system.
