Lost Growth = Success Delayed

Growth is a word that defines a lot of things in our lives today. The same goes for success delayed. Whether it’s in matters of work, growing up as a child or in performance related to sports/any other activity, etc. That’s how we measure if we’re getting better or we need to improve.

For today’s post, I’d like to highlight more about the matters related to children.

It’s important for children in their early ages to eat properly and for the parents to make sure that their kids get the necessary nutrients needed for the kid to grow and improve with age. The food we eat, the habits we get used to are the ones that stick with us like glue. If we eat junk food all the time minus the veggies and the correct amount of protein, make sure to be ready to shell a good amount for medicines, illness, and doctor visits.

I can say this clearly as I have had a lot of junk food and that got me in trouble a lot more than it gave me happiness. Obese was a word that was much suitable for me. I weighed almost over 90 kilos when at the age of 15. You can only imagine what kind of appetite I had. I regularly felt ill and was always hungry.

It was only until about of jaundice and a bit of self-actualization that I’ve managed to stay fit and I vouch to do so. The only regret I have is of not listening to my mother when she had always asked me to never skip on my veggies and every other healthy food that she would cook for me. (I so wish I could go back in time and knock some sense into that kid)

Times have now changed. In this modern world, we reside in, food has been growing in terms of variety. The same could not be spoken about a decade back. Junk food is something that we all love i.e. almost like a guilty pleasure. The options are such that people with love for food will go crazy everyday eating something new.

But there’s a hike in the “healthy food habits” department too. For a few years, people have given more importance to what they eat and how to stay fit. They have also started to make sure they can imbibe those same qualities for their children.

If we teach them what kind of food is good for them and the nutrition they need then not only will their habits food improve but also will their growth gets better with time.

A kid with good eating habits and physical activity (sports, exercise) will grow into a fit person whose abilities shall definitely get better with time. The modernization with regards to the digital world has made our kids choose digital games/social apps rather than playing or exercising and that’s a harsh truth. This will have a negative impact on their health.

The growth potential that they lose will be definitely tough to catch up on but not impossible to achieve success delayed. With a good diet and a good exercise/playing regime, everything can get back to normal. You must check out for various ways to make sure that your kid gets the necessary nutrients. This is for him\her to grow into that beautiful person you’ve ever dreamed to turn them into.

There is a variety of food available today along-with customization in food recipes. You can make sure to feed your child something tasty without them making a fuss. Check what Horlicks think about catching up on your child’s lost growth too.

I hope that sets in some ideas. A fit person will set an example for many and that’s what is the need of the hour. Let’s make sure our kids don’t fall into the vicious trap of not growing and fighting to be healthy. Let them grow in peace and succeed as time passes by!
