Searching for cake recipe for kids?
And you found one. It’s a nice picture, simple recipe, it looks yummy. BUT! Have you ever wondered – could “for kids” mean anything else? If you didn’t – shame on you! But YES! It does, it should! From their birth kids need healthiest nutrition, proper rest, proper activity – to develop, to grow, to be healthy and strong. And then – kids, meet sweets, mostly SUGAR (not so nice to meet you)!
That teeth killing, weight gaining, insulin raising evil! White sugar is a refined sweetener, adding nothing but calories and taste to foods. Sugar can depress your immune system, and that’s not what we want from sweets. It contributes to infertility, and that’s not what we want from sweets. It does bad things, and that’s not what we want from sweets.
So what about fat?
Most of us know about good fats and bad fats; good cholesterol and bad cholesterol. But, let’s face it. Most of most delicious sweets that we know are full of bad fat. And bad fat – they raise our risk of heart attacks and strokes by increasing blood cholesterol levels and do many, many, many other bad things to our health.
But that’s not all!
Gluten is a compound protein that composes about 80% of the protein found in the grains wheat, barley, and rye. There are many bad things that gluten brings to our health, but the most important one is:
“Gluten prevents the absorption of nutrients”
Nutrients that your kids NEED to grow healthy and strong!
So what do we all want? We want better, the best!
So, “cake recipe for kids” should be:
- Delicious – cakes, cookies, cupcakes, muffins, truffles, mousse, souffles, ice cream…
- Nice looking – round, yellow, chocolate, square, with fruit on top…
- HEALTHY – low glycemic desserts, low-fat cookies, gluten-free dessert recipes with chocolate…
Kids are a group with biggest need for healthy nutrition. Their health is essential for developing well, for making good results at school, training, at home, at dating. It’s the best period for them to learn, to adopt healthy living and eating habits. Our nutrition is mostly bad because of our habits, from our early age. But we can change that, we don’t want to quit! And we shouldn’t stop enjoying in desserts!
Imagine making easy chocolate desserts, or easy vanilla cake. And you know, if you eat it you’ll be healthier, your kid will be healthier. Isn’t that funny? YES! But is it TRUE? YEEES!
