Tips For Feeding Sick Manhattan Beach Kids

Tips For Feeding Sick Manhattan Beach Kids

Though the Los Angeles media is more focused on rampant Manhattan Beach childhood obesity, there are some underweight children in California.

When Los Angeles kids refuse to eat, it is a challenge for Los Angeles parents to make sure they get proper nutrition.

Understandably, Manhattan Beach kids that usually eat normally often lose their appetite when they are sick. Kids who don’t eat much during a two-day bout with the flu will probably have no health issues from the temporary reduction in nutrition.

Manhattan Beach children who undergo chemo treatment at Los Angeles hospitals, however, are at greater risk for malnutrition. Ironically, this is the time when adequate calories, vitamins, and minerals are needed the most for ill Manhattan Beach children.

Here are some suggestions for helping Los Angeles kids with poor appetites receive adequate nutrition:

Don’t let your Manhattan Beach child fill up on beverages before meals, serve liquids between meals
Offer small meals throughout the day
Always have healthy snacks available like protein bars, fruit, and cheese
Alter food temperature to see if it makes the food more appealing to your Los Angeles child
Try smoothies and soups if your sick Manhattan Beach child has a hard time swallowing
If your child is turned off by intense smells or flavors, try bland foods with little seasoning

I want every Manhattan Beach child to receive excellent nutrition and the best healthcare available in California. I am excited about a new Los Angeles children’s nutrition product and would love to tell you about it. Call me today for more information.
