It is also important to provide your little one with what enhances calcium absorption, which is vitamin C. Proteins that are found in meat, eggs, milk, dairy products, legumes, grains, and nuts, for example, one or two eggs can be served per week for a child at the age of 3 years.
Magnesium is available in nuts of all kinds and seeds like bulgur and pulp, so replace them with chips and others.
Vitamin E is very important for strengthening the body’s immunity which is found in olive oil, corn oil, and sunflower oil.
Potassium, which is available in oranges, bananas, and dates, is important for blood pressure balance and the functioning of the circulatory system, that is, the cardiovascular system. Iron is important for the production of red blood cells and for brain development in children, and for the strength of the skin and nails and the health and safety of hair, which is available in leafy vegetables such as molokhia and spinach, and it is also important to have vitamin (C) with it to facilitate the absorption of iron.

General advice

The pot mentioned in the table is suitable for a normal child of normal weight.
Sometimes some children need more food because of their fast metabolism, so they do not gain extra weight so there is no objection to a meal over the mentioned in the table and vice versa. Follow up with your pediatrician to ensure his growth, weight, and height, and to ensure that he is nutritional. Do not put pressure on the little one if he totally refuses more food, and offers it to him from time to time because he may not be able to express his hunger. Prevent sweets, chips, soft drinks, and such harmful things completely.
