Caring for Children

Each child is born into its family and a healthy, disciplined child is born into society too. The child’s body and mind develops rapidly during the first five years. In these tender years, they are vulnerable to many diseases because

  • Doshas and dhathu (7 tissues) are in development stage and in state of uncertainty
  • Childhood is dominated by kapha dosha
  • Immature immune system
  • The imbalance in their body constitution

Need for a healthy routine.

Children need to have a healthy diet and lifestyle routine for following reasons.

  • A healthy childhood is the foundation for their overall health in future
  • Lifestyle habits inculcated at this stage of life leave a lasting impression in their mind.
  • A healthy and nutritious eating habits will make them be health-conscious and aware throughout their lifetime.
  • Nutritive diet has a direct impact on the physical, mental and cognitive functions of the child.

Healthy diet and its importance :

Ayurveda advocates that the food that we consume must have ‘prana’ or life force in it. When your food lack intelligence then the consumer is also deficit of it.

  • Dhi – power of learning / acquisition
  • Dhriti – the power of retention
  • Smriti – the power of recalling

The above three are the aspect of mental functions of body. When these abilities are out of balance, the child suffers performance problems. There are millions of micro channels that enable the functions of body, when these are clogged by ‘ama’ or impurities the imbalance is created. Children are more sensitive towards what they consume than adults. Foods that have chemical substances, junk foods, fried, preserved and frozen foods are those that lack life force in it.

What to give children?

  • Homemade, warm foods
  • Warm water
  • Pure ghee
  • Spices
  • Dried fruits
  • Fresh vegetables, fruits and greens
  • Fruits to be given on empty stomach
  • Lemon increases digestive power and supplements vitamin c
