Fruit, yogurt, fruit juice, cereal bars, sugary drinks and various snacks. When immersed in the jungle of snacks, what must be done to choose the right one and to guarantee an acceptable compromise between greed and health? How many calories do they contain? And sugars? Saturated fats?
Altroconsumo has launched a service to help all parents of preschool children, which guides them in choosing the most popular snacks on the market, both sweet and savory. Structured in a database, the snacks all have their own tab with calories, fat, sugar and salt per serving, ingredients, price, plus a practical comment to find out if each snack is suitable from an energy point of view based on the age range of the child, if it is better not to overdo it because it is excessively caloric or if it is recommended to supplement with something else because it is low in calories.
Red, orange, yellow. Don't mess with the traffic light! Each value has its own reference stamp that allows you to understand if the value is excessive, normal or acceptable.
A few examples? A peach is too small a snack and too few calories. Better to integrate it with a light snack, able to provide the amount of energy that is missing without weighing it down. Instead, pay attention to the sugars in fruit juices, which risk being present in excessive quantities. Better pulps and smoothies. Red stamp also for wafers, croissants and dumplings. Definitely substantial snacks for a child who spends the afternoon in front of the TV.
