According to nutrition professor Dr. Heidi Dulay, Ed.D., N.C., we need to eat more vegetables because they’re a prime source of “co-factors” – the term professionals use when talking about vitamins, minerals and nutrients the body needs to process food.
Co-factors are crucial for your kids to be able to absorb nutrition from food, make fuel for energy and grow big and strong. Kids need to eat veggies with their meat, fish, eggs or cheese. Otherwise, they could get constipated and have bad breath.
Dr. Dulay explains that a child’s body can’t break down protein well without co-factors. Your kids not only could get clogged up (our son Brady is never constipated), but they may also get leaky gut, which are holes in their intestines. These holes are made by bacteria as they gobble up the rotting protein lodged in their intestines.
A leaky gut allows foreign substances to pass into their bloodstream and land in their joints. Over time, this could result in inflammation and joint pain. It also can cause their immune system to start misfiring and their skin to break out in ugly lookin’ acne, spots and scabs.
Sometimes, what leaks through causes toxic growths and even arterial plaque. Eventually diseases may emerge, like allergies, arthritis, acne, osteoporosis, lupus, even cancer and heart disease.
