Because antioxidants are associated with cell damage and cell death, parents in the Breedeweg, De Horst, and Molenhoek area often mistakenly assume that antioxidants are only important for adults and the elderly, those with more visible cell death and damage. But that simply isn’t the case. Everyone needs antioxidants for their health, even kids.
Antioxidants work their magic by protecting cells from free radicals. Free radicals are a by-product of the normal metabolic processes that take place in everyone’s bodies (even kids!) all the time. Free radicals may also occur from pollutants, such as cigarette smoke, or when the body breaks down certain medicines.
Free radicals damage cells through oxidation. You might remember from chemistry class that this is the same process that causes an apple slice to turn brown. During oxidation in the cells, DNA can be damaged and changed, which can create the beginnings of disease. A chain reaction of damage can also occur with one damaged molecule becomes a free radical itself and then damages another, and so on.
Now that you know their importance, here are 3 great ways to get more antioxidants into your kids’ diets.
1. Get more veggies on their plates at dinner time and in their lunch boxes
2. Make fruit the snack of choice for your family
3. When buying processed snacks, choose those fortified with antioxidants.
