There’s isn’t a single person who doesn’t enjoy eating! And for people with kapha dominated dosha the love of food is even more. So, it isn’t a surprise that our stocky kapha kids have strong appetites. They easily tend to overeat so you should keep a watchful eye on their meal portions.
Ayurveda recommends the following dietary tips to help your kapha dominated child remained balanced and healthy.
A kapha balancing diet should include beets, cabbage, carrots, leafy green vegetables, and sprouts.
Light, dry foods and spicy food are good for the kapha child.
Keep vegetables like cucumbers, sweet potatoes, and tomatoes, in moderation.
Dried fruits like figs (anjeer), prunes (aloo bukhara), and raisins (kishmish) are good for your kapha child, but dates and fresh figs should be reduced or avoided if possible.
Reduce foods like cold milk, cheese and processed and canned foods which are mucus-causing.
Avoid foods like ice cream, mashed potatoes, yogurt, and butter as they lower the body temperature and make the body heavy.
As a rule, reduce all kinds of sweeteners from your child’s diet. Instead, encourage them to have fresh fruits like apples, berries, cherries, papaya and pears.
Include herbs and spices like ginger, garlic, cumin (jeera), fenugreek (methi) and sesame (til) which are warm in nature and keep the kapha dosha balanced.
Always try and look for healthy alternatives for your kapha child, because they’re prone to putting on weight. Let the Ayurveda diet work its magic so your child can grow up healthy.
