August 24, 2019  14:18

Some parents give their schoolchildren plenty of sugary drinks, thinking that sugar will help improve their mental abilities, but children do not need sugar, they need healthy food with proteins, fats and carbohydrates, said the pediatrician Marie Darakchyan.

According to the expert, parents can make a sandwich with bread, boiled meat and cheese, as well as put chopped fruits and vegetables in a lunch box. Such a snack will give the child not empty calories, but useful nutrients necessary for the normal functioning of the body, including the brain.

Of course, one should not forget that it is still hot in Armenia, and such food should not remain outside the refrigerator for a long time, otherwise it may go bad and become unsafe.

Also, do not forget about water, which is also necessary for the normal functioning of the body.
