Proteins are the source of amino acids, which are the building blocks of your child’s body. Amino acids help the development of muscle, bones, skin and various organs in children. The enzymes which are catalysts of body growth are proteins produced by the body.
Protein builds, maintains, and replaces the tissues in your body. The body uses the protein you eat to make lots of specialized protein molecules that have specific jobs. For instance, your body uses protein to make hemoglobin.
As children grow, their immune system also keeps improving and maturing. Proteins also play an important role in the working and development of the immune system.
Which is why you need to teach your kids the importance of including protein in their meals. Don’t stress over the number of grams of protein your children consume daily. Just remember to offer them a variety of protein-rich foods and teach them why protein is an important nutrient for their bodies.
