Is Your Child Taking ANY Micro nutrient At All?

We all famously know that the every food we eat gives us energy…CALORIES. This calorie can come from Protein, Fat or Carbs– which are the broader nutrition giving sources- Macro nutrients. After the food is consumed, it breaks down further into smaller nutrients like vitamins, minerals, antioxidantsMicro nutrients.

PROTEIN FAT CARBS >> VITAMINS MINERALS ANTIOXIDANTS

While the food will always contain macronutrients (Protein, Fat and Carb), NOT ALWAYS will it contain large amount of micronutrients (vitamins, minerals, antioxidants). Deficiency of any can be damaging for our body. A diet in processed food, for example, is very low in micronutrients. However, a diet rich in vegetables, fruits, nuts, grains, berries, seeds is extremely high in micronutrients and therefore more beneficial for the health of our bodies.

Do you know that there are high chances that we might be consuming close to ZERO micronutrients? I picked up a real family daily meal and did a quick analysis on macro and micro nutrients.

What do we really need and how much do we actually take?

Palak Curry <> Palak Paneer Curry <> Palak Tofu Curry

See how easily we can play with micro nutrients just by adding or removing an ingredient.
