How much food should I give my five year old son?

How much food should I give my five year old son?

So he's not hungry: This seems obvious but it can be difficult, especially if they are being picky. A healthy 5 y/o won't starve, so if he's just occasionally picky, it's fine. There should be a small amount of meat, a decent amount of fruits and veggies during the day (about 1/2 cup or so at each meal), and some bread product, but not too much. If you're still not sure, or he's losing weight, discuss with your ped. ...Read more

You can do theses in bed, before you go to bed, and after you wake up in the morning. These few minutes of exercise may help relieve your aching, and help you avoid medication. Sometimes getting a firmer mattress is helpful, but i'd try the exercises first. ...Read more

Five best foods to star t the day?

Not breakfast cereal: Eggs, avocado, plain Greek yogurt, fruit, & oatmeal from steel-cut oats are all good foods to start the day.
