Food & healthy habits to improve your child’s eyesight

It’s surprising to see kids wear power glasses these days. Though technology has helped simplify our lives, too much dependence has also affected the children in many ways, making them lazy and gadget-addicted.

If you have kids at home, you probably know how much time they spend straining their eyes like watching TV, browsing the internet on a computer, playing video games on smartphones, reading on a tablet or digital platforms, etc. At times, even we, as parents, let kids use these smartphones without creating a fuss.

While watching television & playing video games once in a while is perfectly alright, it can become a growing concern if your child spends most of his day doing just that. Spending too much time in front of the screen can have an impact on your child’s vision that could later impact his overall performance.

To overcome that, it’s important to help your kid inculcate healthier habits so that a growing concern like this can be curbed. In this post, we are going to help you find out healthy ways that can improve your child’s vision. To know more, continue reading the post.

Healthy foods to improve child’s eyesight

When it comes to kid’s eyesight, the first thing that comes to mind is the carrot, which throughout our generations has been told as an excellent food for eyesight. Likewise, there are many natural ways through which you can use to improve the eyesight of your children. Here are some ways:

Green leafy vegetables

Dark leafy greens like spinach, kale, and collard greens are rich in Vitamin E and C with a good number of carotenoids and zeaxanthin. Including leafy vegetables on your child’s diet will lower the risk of long-term eye problems. If your kids do not enjoy eating vegetables, you can always prepare a healthy sandwich made with capscium, tomatoes, cucumbers & lettuce.

Deepwater fish

Include salmon, tuna, and mackerel in your child’s food habits as they are rich in  omega-3 fatty acids. These deepwater fishes can maintain lubrication in your child’s

eyes and prevent dry eye syndrome. Eating omega-3 fatty acid-rich foods daily helps reduce the risk of developing cataracts and macular degeneration.

Egg

When talking about foods for good vision, children love to have eggs in any form, whether half-boiled, full boiled, or omelette. Having a healthy breakfast can keep your child active and energetic throughout the day. This means a healthy breakfast that’s good for eyes can be a one that includes eggs. Eggs contain zinc that helps the child’s body use the carotenoids from its yolk to boost the protective pigment in the macula. The macula is the part of the eye that controls the central vision.

Carrots, berries and citrus fruits

Carrots contain high levels of beta-carotene, which is beneficial for the child’s eye. Also, berries like strawberries and oranges that are rich in Vitamin C can strengthenyour kid’s immune system to resist their body from eye infections and diseases.

Seeds and nuts

Nuts like pistachios, almonds, walnuts, peanuts, and cashews are a rich source of Vitamin E that can reduce the chances of myopia in children. Experts recommend consuming flax seeds, sunflower seeds, and chia seeds to maintain vision & reduce the risk of developing eye problems.

Bottom line

Not just healthy foods, but incorporating healthy habits like refraining your child from junk/ processed/ artificial sugar foods can positively impact your child’s visionhealth.And while you work on your child’s health, don’t forget to get your kid a check-up once in a while. Regular check-ups can keep you updated about their current health condition & find health problems before they start.
