En­sur­ing healthy eats for the fam­ily

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - Body, Mind & Soul - NH Nu­tri Grain with pur­ple sweet pota­toes ful­fils daily nu­tri­ent re­quire­ments per­fectly.

PAR­ENTS try to do their best for their chil­dren – they worry if their kids are not get­ting proper nu­tri­tion. The South East Asian Nu­tri­tion Sur­vey found that while over­nu­tri­tion is com­mon­place, nearly one in 10 Malaysian chil­dren showed signs of un­der­nu­tri­tion, based on their weight-to-age ra­tio.

More than the one-third sur­veyed did not meet the na­tional rec­om­mended nu­tri­ent in­take for en­ergy, cal­cium and vi­ta­min D. The re­sults com­prised chil­dren aged be­tween six months and 12.

De­fi­cien­cies in re­quired nu­tri­ents af­fect chil­dren in ev­ery way. Hav­ing enough en­ergy is nec­es­sary to en­sure chil­dren have enough for the day, hence get­ting the amount right is cru­cial. The sur­vey proves many con­sume empty calo­ries high in fat and sugar and lack­ing in nu­tri­ents.

Such eat­ing habits will lead to obe­sity along with many health prob­lems. The so­lu­tion could be a meal that strives to de­liver the health ben­e­fits of a nu­tri­tious diet.

NH Nu­tri Grains con­tains 20 nu­tri­ent-rich grains, pur­ple sweet potato and ac­tive in­gre­di­ents such as in­ulin, along most of the nu­tri­ents to en­sure op­ti­mal growth for a child, while main­tain­ing the well-be­ing of adults and the el­derly.

In­ulin acts as a pre­bi­otic pro­mot­ing the growth of good bac­te­ria within the di­ges­tive tract. The bac­te­ria im­proves the ab­sorp­tion of im­por­tant nu­tri­ents such as cal­cium, iron, mag­ne­sium and zinc.

Pur­ple sweet potato is rich in an­tiox­i­dants and a good source of fi­bre, vi­ta­mins and min­er­als. It helps boosts the im­mune sys­tem and reg­u­lates blood sugar, with stud­ies show­ing memory en­hanc­ing ef­fects from its con­sump­tion.

NH Nu­tri Grains con­tains al­monds, pearl bar­ley, wal­nuts, flax seed, buck­wheat, soy­bean and more.

Be­sides a de­li­cious taste, these grains pro­vide pow­er­ful health perks, from reg­u­lat­ing blood sugar, re­duc­ing hunger, be­ing rich in min­er­als and es­sen­tial fatty acids, to de­creas­ing choles­terol and im­prov­ing di­ges­tion. These grains are ex­truded for eas­ier di­ges­tion.

A glass of NH Nu­tri Grains makes sure ab­sorp­tion of es­sen­tial min­er­als is max­imised. The ex­tru­sion process also en­hances the taste of the grains.

Chil­dren can gain ben­e­fits such as hav­ing bet­ter memory, gain im­por­tant nu­tri­ents for healthy growth in ad­di­tion to feel­ing en­er­gised through­out their day.
