Vegetarian diets and children - too much fibre?

Lifestyle Trainers

Food being advertised as high in fibre is often taken as a good thing, however according to the Better Health Channel, children on a vegetarian diet should avoid too much fibre:

Watch the amount of fibre in your child’s diet. Too much fibre can lead to poor absorption of important nutrients including:

  • Iron
  • Zinc
  • Calcium

Too much fibre can also be extremely filling, which may prevent a child from eating enough food for their energy needs. Try to introduce a variety of high-energy foods, such as avocados and vegetable oils, to meet your child’s energy needs.

About me

Hi I'm Troy, coaching fitness is the reason I am employed at Genesis Kelmscott.

My real journey began with myself four years ago. After having injured myself at work, I decided it was time to go back and focus on being fit, active and healthy. In my late teens I practiced martial arts in the form of kickboxing for many years.

Once I stepped back into the gym, I re-found my passion for fitness and the healthy lifestyle it brings. I couldn't believe how much I had missed it. From then, I moved all my efforts into learning, practicing and studying all the things connected to building a fitter and healthier lifestyle. I practiced what I had learned on myself, and then begun helping family and friends. It was after these steps that I realised I wanted to become a qualified Personal Trainer, so I could help others on their fitness journey too.

For my clients, fitness coaching with me will not just be about showing you how to exercise. My goal is to pass on what I have learned and educate you on the importance of being active and healthy. You will not only have a better understanding of exercise techniques, but of your own abilities and find what works for you. With this you will be able to train SMARTER not Harder.

Feel free to contact me for a coaching session if you would like to get started on your journey.
