In this puzzle, we must use Bowser and Diddy Kong to push the blocks to the left of the screen, and then push the TNT block to the right.

Darksiders III is a third-person action-adventure video game developed by Vigil Games, and published by THQ Nordic. Darksiders III is the third installment in the Darksiders series.

We thought it was high time we closed the book on the first Darksiders puzzle, and we’re glad to say that wasn’t too difficult. If you remember our first post, at the start of the challenge we asked you to add a new block and a new tornado in the puzzle to complete it. Well, we’ve added the final two blocks to the bottom of the puzzle.

What does a healthy diet for children look like? In this article, we look at how childhood affects brain development, metabolism, and overall health. And how we give our children a good start.

++

Eating habits learned in childhood are the foundation for life.  What we eat at a young age determines brain development, metabolism and overall health.

Currently, the top three sources of calories for children ages 2-3 in the U.S. are

Hmmm.  This is a rather weak basis.

But there is also good news. You may only need to make a few small changes to improve your child’s nutritional profile and ensure they eat healthily and enjoyably throughout their life.

After all, nutrition affects all aspects of a child’s growth, development and health.

This includes :

Maintaining a healthy weight;
Avoiding health problems associated with excess body fat;
Gut health; and
Brain development and behavior.

Let’s take a closer look at these factors.

Factor 1: Overweight

In 1980, only 7% of American children between the ages of 6 and 11 were obese.

In 2010 this was still 18%, or almost one in five people.

About one-third (33%) of American children are now classified as overweight or obese.

Why is this a problem?

Health problems and obesity

Excess body fat is unhealthy and is the basis of childhood illnesses and diseases in adults.

For example:

70% of obese teens are already showing signs of cardiovascular disease – health problems that usually don’t reveal themselves until decades later.
Adipose tissue (fat) gives off hormones and chemical signals; too much fat means inflammation. In children, this means things like asthma.
Fat can accumulate in the liver; non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is the most common cause of liver disease in children worldwide. Children with fatty liver are twice as likely to have arterial plaques.
Children with excess fat have impaired insulin sensitivity and glucose utilization and develop pre-diabetes.
Children with excess fat have a higher risk of long-term chronic diseases, such as B. Stroke, breast, colon and kidney cancer, musculoskeletal disorders and gallbladder disease.
Normal growth and hormonal development may be disturbed. This can affect their development during puberty and their future reproductive health. In girls, puberty may come too early, and in boys, gynecomastia (development of the mammary glands) may occur.

When the body is overweight at a critical stage of development, it is very difficult to change. Health and exercise habits from an early age are influential for decades.

Social problems and obesity

Excess body fat is also a psychosocial burden. It’s no fun being a fat kid on the playground. Overweight and obese children and adolescents are vulnerable to bullying and social isolation.

The role of nutrition in obesity

Which children are most at risk of being overweight or obese? Those who eat mainly high-calorie foods. (See All About Energy Balance)

As you can see from the table below, children’s health and weight are the result of a combination of factors, most of which can be controlled.

Source: Carnell S., Kim Y., Pryor K. Thick brains, greedy genes, and parental power: A biobehavioral model of obesity risk in children and adults. International Journal of Psychiatry 2012;24:189-199.

Factor 2: Intestinal health

Like adults, children depend on good digestion. But because they are young and vulnerable, they are often exposed to viruses and bacterial infections. This sometimes leads to diarrhea, which is often a sign of an intestinal infection.

But not all diarrhea is the result of illness. The main preventable cause is fruit juice. The juice contains fructose and sorbitol, which in large quantities contribute to diarrhea.

While diarrhea is common, its opposite, constipation, is much rarer – provided children eat enough plant-based foods.  But whatever the regime, if a child has to go and tries to hold back, it can cause problems.

Children who suffer from constipation before the age of five usually continue to suffer from it after puberty.

A word of advice: If you are a pediatric student/researcher, there are not many good studies on constipation in children, so feel free to organize studies.

Ultimately, poor nutrition is associated with gastrointestinal diseases.

As with adults, the balance of bacteria in children’s guts can affect their immune function.

Therefore, probiotics can help improve intestinal health, remedy diarrhea after antibiotics, and control inflammation. Also for children. In fact, there are now many probiotics that are safe for children.

Factor 3: Brain and behaviour

The developing brain needs high quality nutrients. Poor nutrition (whether combined with excess body fat or not) also contributes to mood and behavior problems in children, such as B. Depression and ADHD, and even aggression and violence.

This includes caffeine. One study found that children between the ages of 8 and 12 consume an average of 109 mg of caffeine, the equivalent of one cup of coffee per day. Since one cola contains about 30-35 mg of caffeine, this means that an average child drinks about 3 colas a day.

Important note on socio-economic status

Child malnutrition is a complex social problem. It’s a matter of geography and economics.

In developed countries such as the United States or the United Kingdom, for example, children who eat low-quality, high-energy foods are more likely to be poor because these foods are cheaper and more readily available.

In contrast, in developing countries, where poor children still eat traditional foods and staples of local agriculture, it is the rich children whose families can afford the luxury of a high-energy diet.

This means that, at least in industrialised countries, poor nutrition for children often goes hand in hand with poverty.

How can you help improve your children’s nutrition?

The subject of baby food can seem overwhelming, especially if you’re a parent trying to make healthier choices for yourself and your family. Where do I start?

Start with the simplest of basics.
Choose whole foods that are as unprocessed as possible. Avoid processed foods marketed specifically for children.
Include fruits and vegetables in children’s daily diet.
Take vitamins and minerals as needed, but try to get your nutrients primarily from a variety of whole foods.
Help children regulate their appetite and hunger through whole foods and mindful eating.
Take a leadership role. You’re a parent.
Adopt healthy habits yourself so your children have a role model.

Let’s take a closer look at these strategies.

Strategy 1: Choose whole and minimally processed foods.

Children are a prime target for processed food marketing. Unfortunately, these products are usually full of harmful substances.

Reduce the amount of sugar

Many parents and teachers are able to recognize a child who has eaten too much sugar: What were little angels suddenly became hysterical, wall-climbing demons.

Added sugar also disrupts children’s natural appetite regulation and contributes to excess body fat, cardiovascular disease and insulin resistance.

But Ryan, my kids don’t eat sugar desserts and almost never drink soda, so they’re fine.

That’s great.  Remember that many breakfast cereals contain more sugar than soft drinks. The same goes for kid-friendly brands like Go-Gurt.  Sometimes even frozen fruit contains a lot of extra sugar.

(For more information on hidden sources of sugar, click here).

Read the labels

Whether it’s yogurt or fruit juice, granola bars or mixed drinks, whether it says healthy or pixie on the packaging: Read the label.

Watch out for hidden sugars and other unwanted ingredients. You will be amazed at what you will discover if you pay close attention.

Get the things you need

The good news is that children who eat a varied and, above all, complete diet, get enough healthy carbohydrates, lean proteins and good fats. Speaking of good fats….

Dietary fats

Dietary fats help children absorb vitamins. They also help you feel full and satisfied after a meal. And they are essential for the production of hormones.

Children need healthy dietary fats. Without them, children develop deficiencies that can lead to problems with growth, vision, body composition, blood fats and the brain.

Dietary fats are even more important for children than for adults, because they consume a higher proportion of fats in relation to their calorie intake.

One type of dietary fat – omega-3 fatty acids – is even beneficial for cognitive development and the prevention of many chronic diseases.

EPA/DHA (a type of omega-3 fat) can be obtained from oily fish. However, since most kids don’t like this, try adding a spoonful of fish oil to a fruit smoothie or a Barleans Omega Swirl Smoothie.
Alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), another type of omega-3 fat, can come from nuts and seeds such as flax, walnuts, pumpkin seeds or chia seeds. So add raw nuts as a snack and also add ground flaxseeds or chia seeds to your baby’s porridge or smoothies.

If children can tolerate eggs (some are allergic), use whole eggs, as the yolk contains important fats and choline, another nutrient essential for brain development.

If possible, choose dairy products with a high fat content.

And coconut is an excellent source of healthy saturated fats. Crushing a fresh coconut – kids usually find this hilarious. You can also use unsweetened coconut milk or coconut flakes in dishes and coconut flour in baked goods.

Small replacements can reduce the

Just switching to less processed, whole foods can make a big difference.

Look at your children’s daily menu and see where you can replace processed foods with healthier alternatives.

Classic parenting tips: Dilute fruit juice with water, mix flavored yogurt with regular yogurt or mix chocolate milk with regular milk.

Strategy 2: Add fruit and vegetables

Adding fruits and vegetables is another simple and effective way to improve your children’s nutrition.

Fruits and vegetables are conveniently packaged, easy to prepare and packed with important nutrients that a growing body needs.

Of course not all children like all fruits and vegetables at the same time. Here are some tips to solve the most common problems.

The problem: Kids don’t like the taste of vegetables.
Solution: Cook the vegetables in different ways.  Roast them, make them into a soup, add the vegetables to a smoothie with fruit or serve them raw. And remember, it can take ten or more exposures for a child to accept a new food. So give it time. Keep trying new options. And keep looking for ways to incorporate vegetables into your meals.

The problem: Preparation seems awkward or difficult.
Solution: Keep prepared vegetables on hand, e.g. pre-washed baby vegetables. Involve children in the preparation of fruits and vegetables – even young children can do things like cut the ends off green beans, mash an avocado or tear lettuce for a salad. The more children are involved, the more willing they are to try new foods.

The problem: No access
Solution :  Store vegetables at home and at school.  Reorganize the refrigerator so that cooked vegetables are available and less useful alternatives are hard to find.

The problem: Fruits and vegetables are not cool because they have no advertising of their own.
Solution: Don’t rely on advertising to choose your food. Teach children to be critical of the media. Help them understand that advertising is meant to sell products – not necessarily for their benefit. And take them with you when you go shopping. Let them explore the food section and choose what they want to try.

The problem: Peer pressure to eat non-nutritious food
Solution What happens in the peer group stays in the peer group.  Focus on eating better at home.

The problem: Parents don’t eat vegetables.
Solution: Parents eat vegetables. You knew we were going to say that, didn’t you?

Please note that raw vegetables can be dangerous for young children, who may choke on them. (This includes hard candy, nuts, peanut butter, hot dogs and popcorn).

Strategy 3: Vitamins and minerals

Latest news : Eating nutrient-poor foods instead of nutrient-rich foods can lead to nutrient deficiencies.

If a child is not getting enough nutrients through his or her diet, supplementing with vitamins, minerals and omega-3 fatty acids can be beneficial for cognitive health and behavior. Children with low socioeconomic status, those with ADHD symptoms, and those with learning disabilities may also benefit from supplementation.

Below are the nutrients most often missing from children’s diets and some good sources of these nutrients in whole foods:

Calcium – beans, herbs, nuts, seedsBerron – beans, meat, whole grains, herbsZinc – beans, meat, whole grains, fishVitamin A – fruits, vegetablesVitamin C – fruits, vegetables (vitamin C helps with iron absorption)Folic acid – whole grains, beans, fruits, Vitamin B6 – whole grains, vitamin D – fish, eggs, milk, mushrooms, fortified foodsVitamin B12 – animal products (children on vegan diets need extra vitamin B12)Iodine – iodized salt, sea vegetables, milk, fish (Why dairy?) Disinfectants used in the dairy industry leave traces of iodine in dairy products).

Let children play outside in the sun as often as possible to get enough vitamin D, which is important for muscle growth and bone development. Currently, most children do not get more than 300 IU of vitamin D per day, which is well below the nutritional requirement of 600 IU per day. For more information on vitamin D, see All about vitamin D.

Hydration

Water and unsweetened tea are the best thirst quenchers. They promote good hydration. And when kids get used to the taste, they will prefer it to sweetened drinks.

Unfortunately, currently more than 30% of the fructose young children ingest comes from sweetened beverages.

Although cow’s milk is part of most children’s diet, it is not mandatory.  Using cow’s milk as a meal replacement can lead to anemia.

Consider switching from fruit juice to whole fruit and try alternatives to cow’s milk. Then use mainly water and unsweetened tea as drinks for children.

Food intolerances in children

If your child is sensitive to a certain product and needs to be kept away, that’s normal.  Find out what nutrients a particular food can provide and include other foods in your diet that will make up for the deficiency (or use supplements).

For more information on food sensitivities, see All About Food Sensitivities.

If you think your child has an allergy, test it with him/her.  Allergies can be measured.  Up to 5% of children are allergic to cow’s milk protein.  If your baby is allergic to cow’s milk, use a non-allergenic drink.

Foods that normally cause hypersensitivity :

Eggs
Cow’s milk
Soybeans
Wheat
Peanuts
Tree nuts
Crustaceans
Children and toxins

We are all exposed to various toxins. And we’re still learning more about where toxins can be found. The following measures are helpful in reducing children’s exposure to toxins:

Strategy 4: Helping children to eat well

Under the right circumstances, children are intuitive eaters. Their bodies tell them how much they need.

Some days they eat more, some days less. Your body will naturally regulate consumption over time. So counting calories for healthy children is an unnecessary effort.

Children’s amazing capacity for self-regulation can be influenced by

Poor assessment of portion sizes Overly processed foods Restricting foods Labeling certain foods as bad Hurried, distracted, or on the go Strategies that don’t work

As a parent, you undoubtedly want your children to be happy and healthy. So you can:

Give them food as a reward when they are upset;
set strict rules about good and bad food;
encourage them to eat the food;
try to bribe them (if you finish your spinach, you get an ice cream).

Unfortunately, the strategies described above only make things worse. Besides, it’s a lot of work for you!

Try these strategies

So try to apply these strategies. So that children can eat intuitively and naturally throughout their lives:

Serve them a variety of unprocessed, whole foods.
Serve in appropriate portions.
Give them the illusion of choice and self-determination (for example, you can choose a vegetable to eat tonight).
Allow children to stop when they are no longer hungry (rather than insisting that they finish their plate).
Avoid strict dietary restrictions or references to children’s weight.
Don’t keep junk food in the house. Make sure healthy choices are widely available. Don’t make such a big deal out of it; just make the wrong decisions and quietly ….. unreachable.
Involve children in grocery shopping, menu planning and cooking.
Take it easy.
Eat together as a family as often as possible; make meals a family affair.
Strategy 5: Taking on a leadership role

Parents: You have to take the initiative. You’re in charge here.

Their job is to provide food. But it is up to the child to decide if he or she wants to eat. When children are hungry, they eat.

Set a good example of healthy eating yourself.

In the end, children pay more attention to what their parents do than to what they say.  Set a good example and your kids will probably follow you.

But what about difficult children?

This is very good, you might say. But my kid won’t eat vegetables no matter what! How does he get enough nutrients?

No problem. Make sure they eat a lot:

Apricots
Cantaloupe
Mango
Peaches and plums
Beans
Nuts
Avocado
Eggs
Citrus fruit
Berries

What about children who don’t like or tolerate dairy products? How do they get enough calcium?

Make sure they eat a lot:

Broccoli
Green leafy vegetables (may add to smoothies)
Beans/legumes
Fish with bones
Calcium-rich non-dairy milk.

And for those who don’t like meat? How do they get enough protein?

Make sure they eat a lot:

Beans
Peas (children often like steamed edamame pods)
Nuts
Seeds

In other words: There is a solution to almost every possible problem.

General guidelines

While it may seem easier to focus on daily portions and quantities, it is advisable to be flexible. Step back and look at the bigger picture. A few days without 3 to 5 servings of vegetables is enough.

In general, you should strive to

Vegetables – 3-5 servings per day (serving size = fist)
Fruits – 2-3 servings per day (serving size = fist)
Beans/pulses/meat/eggs – 2-3 servings per day (serving size = palm)
Whole grains – 2-3 servings per day (serving size = fist)
Nuts/seeds/olives/avocado/coconut – 2-3 servings per day (serving size = thumb)
Summary and recommendations.

How much should children eat?  They have to eat until they’re not hungry anymore.

What should children eat? A blend of whole and minimally processed foods.

What should children drink?  Mostly water and unsweetened tea.

How do you maintain a healthy bowel movement?  Adequate fluids, exercise and whole plant foods (vegetables, fruits, beans, whole grains, nuts, seeds).

The first thing you can do to help your kids?  Develop healthy habits for yourself.

You will learn the best nutrition, exercise and lifestyle strategies – unique and individual – for you.
