Ayurvedic Healthy Eating for Kids and Families

Being born a Hindu, It is evident that my sister and myself have been brought up to be Hindus. Hindu way of life and traditions are naturally passed on to us through our mother and grandmothers.

We in turn will pass it on to our children. We were constantly reminded how to take care of our families. As we grew up, got married and had our families we were always told how to eat healthy the Ayurvedic way.

The eighth branch of Ayurveda emphasises healthy eating. We are taught how to eat healthily during our pregnancies. The eighth branch is called Kaumarbhrutya (the little one), which clearly describes how to bring up a child from birth to sixteen years of age. This branch is about thousand years old, consisting of tips on how to build a healthy body and sharp mind for your infant right from birth.

Focusing on healthy diet is the way to a good health for your infant. Ayurveda is our way of life and emphasizes on feeding healthy and eating digestible vegetarian food. This helps to keep the child´s digestive system strong and healthy, which is a key to healthy growing-up .

Over the weeks I am going to focus on how to cook simple, seasonal vegetables, beans, lentils with spices. The balanced Ayurvedic diet consist of proteins, vegetables, fats and carbohydrates. This gives the body and soul a balanced Pancha Bhutams, which consists of earth, water, fire, air and ether.

The basis of Ayurveda diet is available to all level of the socio economic structure from the very wealthy to the poor. Ayurveda diet has been inscribed in the Vedas to ensure the development of a healthy body, soul and mind for a diverse and populace nation like India.
