Food is not always nutrition. Satiating hunger in some way is possible for sometime as just about anything we throw in our system can make us full. But are there any nutritional benefits to what we are having?
Specially for small children and young adults, nutritional requirements can take a back seat and eventually result in health problems.
It is always a good idea to be aware of our requirements so that we can control our intake and change our eating patterns whenever required.
Parents need to be cautious and engage in the food habits of children like everything else.
