10 Worst Dinners to Feed Your Children!

Children's Health News, Diet and Nutrition News & Advice, Your Health

Feeding your children fast and nutritious dinners can be impossible. You’re just back from work and you have to get them ready for sports and clubs with only a short break to eat. It can be easy to just cave and get them fast food on your way to their extracurricular activities.

Children can also be extremely picky with what they will eat for dinner. This is a particular issue for young children. Their taste buds are extremely sensitive and many adult flavors are not palatable. Children may also be scared of trying new things because they are different to their normal meals.

The fatty, salty flavors of fast food are widely popular in children. Unfortunately some of their favorite meals can be the most unhealthy. Food experts point fingers at these 10 worst dinner options…

1. Fried Chicken

Fried chicken is a popular dish for take out dinners. Restaurants advertise that the chicken is cooked at a high heat, preventing the oil from being fully absorbed.

This may be true for the chicken meat, but consider that the breading soaks up all the fat instead. Children love the crunch of the coating on chicken, but nutritionists recommend baking it to keep the crunch without all the fat. Also watch out for the gravy that is commonly served beside take away fried chicken.
