At Yomina.com, we are here to help you make healthy food choices for you and your family. From processed food to foods filled with preservatives and dyes, today’s readily available foods are filled with nutritionally- void ingredients. As parents, it is important that we select the most natural, nutritionally rich foods for the children and for ourselves. We need to work even harder than ever before, to phase out marketing and advertising and select what is best for our families. The wise labeling is misleading the consumers into believing that foods are good when, in reality, they are void of many essential nutrients.
The 80/20 Rule
As much as we would like our children to eat healthy, organic and chemical-free food 100% of the time, it is not that easy to follow through. The kids will go to parties and eat a sugary treat or they will go to the mall with their friends and indulge in burgers & fries full of unhealthy ingredients. Toddlers will have a tantrum in public and in order to calm the toddlers down most parents will hand them a sugary candy.
The 80/20 healthy food is an approach where they don’t have to have healthy food 100% of the time but 80% or more is good. The 80/20 rule means that 80% of the food eaten is healthy, full of nutrients and chemical-free and is as close to its natural form as possible. 20% of the time the body can indulge in fries, ice creams, sugary treats etc. Our bodies are very resilient and can fight to an extent but the problem happens when there is nutritionally-void, chemical-filled food entering the bodies on a regular basis causing havoc to our children’s health. At some point, the body cannot handle such a continuous intake of harmful food and becomes less efficient. This leads to the start of a vicious cycle that leads to child obesity, diabetes, gastro disorders and many other issues arising from eating unhealthy food.
