Eating out with children


Have you noticed that most children’s menus contain little or no dietary fibre? They seem to always include a lot of cheese, high glycaemic carbohydrates and highly processed meat.

Nowadays when we eat out as a family, in an effort to nourish our children and their friendly gut bacteria, we tend to opt for Japanese so they get a good dose of fermented miso and fibre from edamame, seaweed, avocado and cucumber maki; or for South East Asian cuisines where we order a shared veggie stir fry or add on sautéed Asian greens (and are sure to request for no msg).

Eating out can still include the all important fabulous fibre… it’s a win win for kids and microbes!
