Protein for Kids: Where to get it?

Protein for Kids: Where to get it?

When you become a parent it’s easy to get overwhelmed by the plethora of different diets, lifestyles and opinions coming from your family, friends and the internet. There are a million different recommendations that you’re bombarded with as soon as you enter this phase of your life. In reality, the answer comes down to one simple question; what does your child need? Amongst the list of things you come up with, a very important part of any child's diet is protein.  

Protein is required to support the growth and healthy development of your child. From muscles and bones to organs and cells, protein plays a huge part in forming it all. 

There are many different ways your child can get their protein and at the end of the day, that choice comes down to you. We are here to provide a variety of great options, so you can choose what’s best for you and your family.  

Best Protein Sources from Food 

On average, here is the recommended daily intake of protein for kids: 

  • Children aged 1 to 3 = 13 grams 
  • Children aged 4 to 8 = 19 grams 
  • Children aged 9 to 13 = 34 grams 
  • Girls aged 14 to 18 = 46 grams 
  • Boys aged 14 to 18 = 52 grams 

When putting together a meal for your child, you should always try your best to add protein to the plate. To make things simple for you, here is a list of foods that are high in protein that can be easily added to a meal.  

  • Eggs 
  • Cheese 
  • Fish and poultry 
  • Baked beans 
  • Greek yogurt 
  • Tofu 
  • Bread 
  • Pasta 

Things get a little bit more complicated when your child is a picky eater or things are preventing them from getting in nutrients from foods. If this sounds familiar, there's nothing wrong with incorporating supplements into their diets to make sure they are getting everything they need to develop into healthy little humans.
