Children go through various growth and development stages, and they require a constant change in their food lifestyle. Most parents keep on wondering what kind of food to give to their kids. Here is the list of the ten best foods that you can give to your kids.

It serves as a great snack food for kids. They are less in calories and are a good source of fiber and Vitamin C. Apples also contain healthy nutrients like phytochemicals that contribute immensely toward growth and development.

  2. Breakfast Cereal

Whole-grain breakfast cereal is a good choice for kids as it has added fiber and calcium. A few cereal bowls also provide minerals, vitamins, and iron to the kids. Some of the healthy variants of the cereals include wheat, cheerios, shredded wheat, and raisin bran. You can always add berries, shredded nuts, bananas, or strawberries for added flavours. 

    3. Eggs
