    Does Sugar Really Make Kids naughty..?

    Does Sugar Really Make Kids naughty..?

    If you think of your child's body as an engine, then the “fuel” that we put in affects their performance. Our aim is to put in food that helps them to perform more effectively. Find out how diet affect your child's mood and behavior, and learn about healthy food alternatives.
    The food that we give to our kids has a direct impact on their behavior and their ability to do well and concentrate at school. Poor diet has been considered by some experts to be a factor in juvenile crime.

    Changing your kids' diet ( and indeed the whole families' diet ) can have the following benefits:

    * better academic performance
    * calmer behaviour
    * better concentration
    * less agressive and argumentative
    Find a healthy way to start the day

    I'm sure that you have heard this piece of advice many times, but start the day with a good breakfast, consisting of complex carbohydrates and protein.

    These foods will give your child a slow release of energy throughout the morning. Examples would be porridge oats, baked beans on wholewheat toast, wholewheat pancakes with fruit, muesli and high fiber cereals, eggs in any form or lean back bacon.
    Avoid high sugar “quick fix” foods


    High sugar, over processed foods give our body a quick rush or energy, a sugar "high," but it doesn't last. The resultant rises and falls in blood sugar levels leave our bodies confused, and children become hyperactive, jumpy or just plain naughty as their body struggles to cope with these surges.

    By mid morning at school they will be tired, flagging and struggling to concentrate. So high sugar cereals, sweet pastries, chocolate loaded croissants, etc. should be off the menu!
    Cut down on additives

    Try to steer clear of too many over processed foods. Additives, chemicals and dyes can have an adverse effect on many children, resulting in food intolerance and allergies.

    Tatrazine (E102) is found in many yellow dyed foods, and has become famously linked with hyperactivity in kids. The best thing to do is to feed your kids as much “home cooked” food as you can. That way you have control over the exact ingredients, and can have an input into what they put into their body.

    It doesn't have to be time consuming or difficult. Check out our recipes section for some healthy “fast food” alternatives that your kids will love. Remember to include the healthy, slow release energy foods in the lunch box too, as that way your kids will maintain energy and concentration levels throughout the day.

    London, Apr 20 (ANI): Rewarding naughty children for their good behaviour may help in improving their unruly conduct, experts have suggested.

    According to the data released by the British government last year, 200 children were sent home every day for bad behaviour.

    The experts suggested that praising and rewarding naughty children for concentrating and turning up on time and ignoring their attention seeking behaviour may make them disciplined and even boost their attendance in school.

    “Schools where pupils’ achievements are celebrated, however small, encourage them to be self motivated and self-disciplined, reducing the need to police their behaviour and attendance,” the Mirror quoted Dr Lynne Rogers, of the Institute of Education, as saying.

    “For children who seek attention, being given it even through punishment will be rewarding,” added colleague Prof Susan Hallam.

    Moreover overlooking their poor behaviour where possible and rewarding good “will lead to repetition and bring about change”.

    However, refuting the suggestions, Michael Gove, Shadow Children’s Secretary said: “The suggestion that teachers should ignore poor behaviour is wrong. They need more powers to deal with disruptive children.”

    The Department for Schools said: “Teachers will know what works best.” (ANI)
