Since you child has poor digestion, this should limit the types of food he/she eats
in a single meal.
Different types of food require different types of digestive enzymes.
Don’t mix proteins and carbohydrates!
If you give your child proteins and carbohydrates in the same meal, it will be difficult for him/her to digest.
Thus, we suggest opting for vegetables as the base of each meal. The vegetables should be lightly steamed (always keep their crunchy texture and a bright green color).
To these steamed vegetables, you may add grains such as rice, quinoa, millet or buckwheat, or (NOT “AND”) a little meat or fish.
You can also give nut butters, almond or cashew, by adding them to grains or vegetables for a nutritious meal. You can also add cold pressed flax oil.
The principles of food combinations are to avoid mixing proteins with carbohydrates (ie. grains).
So in the same meal, you serve either vegetables with meat, fish or legumes – or vegetables with grains, but you should avoid serving meat, fish and legumes with grains at all cost.
