There is no food that provides by itself all the nutrients our body needs. Therefore, only the variety of products and the intake of the proper portions of each of them will allow a healthy growth of children.
It´s also important to educate children on food diversity to develop on them the sense of taste.
It is necessary to consume five helpings of fruits and vegetables a day per person as recommended by the World Health Organization (WHO). These 5 rations are equivalent to 400 grams per day of these products for children (3-6 years) and 600 grams for adolescents and adults.
