Diet: We now know that there are some specific scientifically sound truths about what we should be eating. Your diet should consist of 1800 calories and be made up of the following: 60% of your calories should be from protein sources 25% of the calories should be from carbohydrates 15% of the calories should be fats.
How old is baby: A baby less then 4-6 months of age should be receiving appropriate nutrition if being provided right amount of formula or breast milk. In an infant between 6-12 months of age, a mixture of milk/formula and solid foods provide good nutrition. Please avoid any processed (junk) foods - provide vegetables, protein and grains.
Depends: Different schools of thought as to what is considered balance. The best diet is probably the mediterranean diet which consists primarily of vegetables, fruits, beans, nuts, whole grains, a little olive oil and occasional meats and wine. I say choose wild salmon over the meat, avoid the wine if you don't already drink, and you can stay healthy. Avoid all whites: sugar, flour, rice, pasta.
A variety of foods: Healthy diets have natural foods that take time to chew but contain few calories. Examples include carrots, celery, and iceberg lettuce (little/no salad dressing). When shopping for fruits, buy small ones no bigger than a tennis ball, because fruits have sugar. Drinks without calories include water and green tea. Surely avoid sugar & simple starch calories. Eat some protein with each meal.
Good luck trying: The balanced diet is an adult idea, & a good one to practice for your lifetime. However it is a bit impractical when you deal with kids. Breast milk is balanced, but get past weaning & you must deal with a kid with his/her own ideas about eating. I like to look on kids from the vantage point of a balanced week rather than meal or day. Before school age their brain directs their cravings & does ok.
Balanced: A balanced diet simply means that you eat many different types of foods in moderation.
Deficiency: Micronutrient deficiencies will tend to happen. These can adversely impact your short and long term health.
No single best but:: No single diet is best for everyone but most folks should eat mostly vegetables, fruit, nuts & seeds with moderate use of dairy & eggs. If you desire meat use in moderation. Minimize sweets, starches & fried foods. Avoid sodas & artificial sweeteners. Avoid excess alcohol. Don't smoke. Stay physically & mentally active. Get enough sleep. Relax/meditate. Be kind, live by the Golden Rule. Be here now.See 2 more doctor answers
Protein, good fats,: And carbs are called "macronutrients." Eat all three but stay lowest on carbs. Avoid bad fats in junk food, anything w/corn syrup. Good fats are olive oil and coconut oil. Avoid sugar. See doc for suggested diet. Spectracell labs in TX can test all your nutrients. Peace and good health.
Medically based: Go to the internet and punch in balanced diet and lots of sites pop up. The sites that have nutrition and healthy eating tools are best. The mayo clinic, the american heart association have good guidelines. Research multiple sites. Avoid fad diets. A diet with a large range of vegetables is more nutritious than a diet with a large range of fast food.See 1 more doctor answer
Healthy diet: 4 cups of fruits5 cups of vegetables, about 3 servings of whole grains, 5 servings of dairy (1%milk), 2 servings of red meats a week. 64 ounces of water a day.
