Ensuring that your child has a balanced, nutritious diet is no easy task but an extremely important one as a healthy childhood is what lays the foundation of a healthy adult. Pitta children tend to be overly energetic and have the fiery temperament their dosha is inspired by. Because of this, they have a tendency of being stubborn in what they wish to eat. And along with avoiding junk food, fizzy drinks and canned foods, a balanced diet can do wonders for his overall development.
Include foods with sweet, bitter and astringent tastes.
Avoid spicy foods, sour foods like garlic, chillies, onions and pepper.
