Post image for Prevent Disease by Serving Your Kids These Foods

Are your kids being fueled with the proper foods? Of course every child will find a way to eat a cookie, ice cream or candy…but this should not be an everyday occurrence. Parents should help guide their children towards wiser choices when it comes to what they eat.

CNN.com paired up with Rachel Beller, R.D. founder of the Beller Nutritional Institute in Beverly Hills, mom of four and an expert in eating for disease prevention to put together a go-to list of the most important foods a child should consume.

1. Blueberries: decided as one of the healthiest foods around, protects against heart disease, diabetes and helps improve brain function. Try adding them into your childs cereal, oatmeal, yogurt, salads or just on their own.
2. Tofu: full of lean protein and anti-cancer benefits. Dice it up and toss into a stir fry, soup, use the silken variety for smoothies or snack on cooked edamame.
3. Tomatoes: packed with lycopene (protects against cancer) and if you cook the tomatoes they become even healthier when the heat releases the lycopene. Serve tomatoes with olive oil to add in healthy fats which help the body absorb more nutrients. Make your own healthy pizzas, add in pasta sauce or turkey meatballs.

Gearing up for all those BBQs, pool parties, and family picnics? Seems that at all of those events high calorie foods are being served… right? This doesn’t always have to be so!

According to WebMD.com, summer is one of the times people eat the most fattening foods. Although people are generally more active during the summer, the extra exertion may not be enough compared to all the fattening foods that are consumed. The top 10 most fattening summer foods are:

1. Red Meats- T-Bone steaks, ribs and cheeseburgers all have an exponential amount of fat and calories. Try leaner cuts to grill instead.
2. Hot Dogs- who doesn’t love a hot dog during the summer? But these are usually packed with strange meats that have little nutritional value. Load your whole wheat hot dog bun with a turkey dog or chicken dog instead, they have great flavor and half the calories.
