Choose fruit as your snack.
Most high energy snacks like doughnuts and cakes provide only energy while fruits provide natural sugars along with vitamins that help boost the body's immunity. Fruits also contain fiber which helps you prevent constipation.
Learn about fruit selection for diabetics by consulting a Dietitian at AAR CITY CENTRE CLINIC ON MONDAYS AND WEDNESDAYS.
Is your child getting the needed amount of protein?
High protein diet is a must for children and it means being mindful about including a protein at each of your child's meals.
How dare you serve a child a meal without a protein?

For so long information on nutrition has been missing especially here in Uganda which has caused alot of controversies in the field of nutrition. But I guess it is never to late.
My colleague and friend @musiime_lutgard_akiiki has risen to the challenge and is bringing us nutrition information on differently abled children very soon in her book DIFFERENTLY ABLED NUTRITION. Be on the look out.
Diet is the greatest modifiable risk factor highly capable of contributing to the reduction of premature deaths caused by non communicable diseases such as diabetes, hypertension etc. Diet not only plays a role in prevention of the same, but also in improving overall health by preventing or delaying nutrition or condition relatedcomplications.
However, we must also acknowledge that one shoe size doesn't fit all. The needs of individuals with similar concerns and even similar conditions may differ thus the need for individualised diet management.
Our nutritionists/dietitians are available to guide you into making informed decisions regarding the steps to take towards your better overall health. The decision you make now has an impact on whether you and I are part of reducing deaths attributed to NCDs or not.
Breastfeed your child exclusively for 6 months.
If you have to return to work at 3months, learn how to Eexpress milk for your baby before the end of your maternal leave.
If you need breastfeeding guidance please share your contact in my inbox.
Heart Health Diet Tip
Use natural spices and herbs such as rosemary, thyme, turmeric and garlic to make food tasty without adding excess salt.
Reducing sodium (salt) in your diet helps maintain a healthy blood pressure.
You could choose not to brush your teeth and the consequences will be visible within a day ( characteristic odour).
But well diet is tricky because you see the impact of your unhealthy food choices after months or even years.
It is truly hard to convince a child to brush daily until they learn about the awfulness of a bad breath and dirty teeth. At this point he or she wakes up to brush their teeth.
Start eating healthy before the diagnosis of a diet related disease.
Prevention is better than cure.
Healthy food should be a daily choice and not just for when you fall sick.

What is your stress food?
👆🏽Mine is anything with chocolate.
Binge eating these yielded nothing apart from becoming good evidence that food doesn't solve your problems.
The other disadvantage of stress eating is that eating sugary items will increase your craving for sugar so do not start this sugar craving cycle especially if you are still struggling with weight loss.
Fatty stress foods also have disadvantages.
Opt for exercise as it is good therapy for any form of stress. Won't take away the problem but works better than food.
If you struggle with food choices, call 0784200201 for individualised guidance
This helps to show how exaggerated marketing of foods as completely healthy is often misleading.
Remember the so called healthy foods can also be eaten in the wrong amounts that contribute to bad health & excess body fat.

Fish with chewable bone is an excellent source of calcium. (Mukene and nkejje)
Plant sources include dark leafy vegetables include amaranth greens (doddo) however these should be eaten in large servings.
Spinach or sukumawiki is not a good source as it contains oxalates that reduce Calcium absorption.
Milk and yogurt are good calcium sources, low fat and sugar free options are available if you are on a low fat diet.
Says Regina Regis Dietitian Clinical Dietitian at AAR health care
Calcium rich foods;
Milk, choose low fat
Yogurt, choose plain low fat
Calcium fortified foods
Sardines for those who eat tinned fish
A cup of cooked doddo (amaranth leaves) gives you over a quarter of your daily calcium requirements.
