 kid's eye health

Screentime has always been a worrisome topic for most parents. And the pandemic has only just added to the concern. With nowhere to go, the only easy option kids are left with is playing games and watching cartoons online. And the burden of online classes just add up to their increased screen time. The time kids used to spend on outdoor activities is now spent watching TV or mobile phones.

As per reports, the eye specialist consultations have gone up during the pandemic because of the increased screen time.

However, the good news is that your child's diet can play an important role in keeping his/her eyes healthy. Here is a list of five foods that you must include in your kid's diet for healthy eyes.

While as adults we understand the importance of eating healthy but it's tough to convince kids to eat healthy, especially if they are fussy eaters.

Here is a list of five interesting and nutritious foods that are good for kid's eye health.

01/ ​Cheese and eggs

Kids love cheese and eggs too. Both these foods are rich in Vitamin A and thus great for eye health. Egg yolk is rich in lutein, which is again good for eye health. Omelette, half-fried or sunny side up, make it the way your kid likes it and add some cheese on top.

02/ ​Fish with chips

Fishes including salmon and sardines are a great source of omega 3 fatty acids. If your kid likes eating fish, you can try and make it interesting by making it in different shapes and adding some chips on the side.

03/ ​Chocolate almonds

There is no kid on the planet who doesn't love chocolates. Thus, one of the best ways to make your kids eat something healthy is by pairing it up with chocolate. Almonds are rich in Vitamin E and make for a good mid-day snack. You can give it to them with their breakfast or anytime during the day.

04/ ​Vegetables

Vegetables are rich in all the nutrients including vitamin A, Vitamin C and Vitamin K. All these nutrients are good for eyes and overall well being.

You can try new ways to make your kids eat veggies like stuff broccoli in a paratha or make tomato pickle or chutney. You can give them sweet potato chips or make a nice vegetable patty with a burger.

05/ ​Fruits

Most kids love to eat summer fruits like mango and cantaloupe. These fruits are rich in Vitamin A. So, next time when your child asks for a snack, without thinking much, give them a mixed fruit bowl.
