In relation to olive oil, an easy technique when making a family meal is to use a spoon of oil per guest. In case of lack of appetite or nutrivix lose weight naturally should be enriched with oil in the child’s own dish since each spoon contributes between 90-100 cal.
Remember that apart from lunch and dinner, the oil is used in the sandwiches and if necessary, it can also be used in the shakes.
Nuts, like olive oil, are also a source of quality fats and in children under 3 years can be offered crushed or ground. On the other hand, pastries, ice cream, sweets, sausages and pre-cooked foods are a source of low quality fats and surprisingly increase the caloric intake of food, favoring overweight and obesity, even in growing children.
