Cholesterol, a waxy substance found in our blood, is needed to build healthy cells, but if it is too much, fatty deposits are developed in our blood vessels, and this increases our risk of heart disease. As we clearly don’t want that for our kids, we found out that statins can be effective in maintaining cholesterol levels. And, good news, there are simple foods that our kids love to eat that naturally contain statins! Here are 3 popular food ideas to include in your next lunch boxes.
Artichoke is one of the foods on our list that naturally contain statins. Sure, it’s not possible to pack a whole artichoke in our kids’ lunch boxes but there are different ways to introduce this superfood easily!
Lentils are legumes that are part of a heart-healthy diet. Green, black, red, or yellow, there are different ways to introduce them in your kids’ lunch boxes! Let’s see how our friends at the Teuko Lunchbox Community packed their kids’ lunch boxes with lentils.
Beans also naturally offer statins. Red, black, beige, or green, big or small, round or shaped as a moon crescent, beans are a very kid-friendly food you need to add to your grocery list!
