Many may remember when classroom bulletin boards displayed the food pyramid. The pyramid – there was only one. One size fit all. Everyone needed to follow the same nutritional guidelines. Everyone was encouraged to merely glance at the pyramid to figure out how many servings were needed each day.
Most would agree that it is a great thing that obsolete food pyramid has gone by the wayside! It may have taken a while, but the idea that not all people want the same food intake finally caught on. Nor are children expected to follow the same nutritional guidelines as the adults.
If you're hoping we'll show you the "kid's guidelines" there unfortunately isn't a set guideline. The amount of food from each food group that each person should eat to maintain a healthy lifestyle is dependent on their age, sex and physical activity level. One size doesn’t fit all.

Keep in mind balance is the name of the game. Make sure your children are consuming fruits and vegetables, dairy, meats and beans and grains each day. Then top it off with water, fresh air and exercise. To help you get started, below you will find a couple of healthy meals for children.
