Our children deserve all the attention regarding their diet and something that we do not take into account is the organization of the refrigerator. However, it is an important question to keep food in the best condition, to make better use of the products and to optimize the purchase.
We have some recommendations for organizing the refrigeratoror in the healthiest way for children. Although the fundamental premise is that all the products we consume are healthy and natural. A diet based on fresh foods is the secret to avoiding childhood obesity.
1. Cold chain. The first thing to bear in mind when storing and consuming food is that we must not break the cold chain. When less time has passed since we do the purchase Until we store it in the refrigerator, the better the nutrients will be preserved.
2. Overload. The refrigerator must not be overloaded so that it does not consume so much energy and so as not to cause excess cooling that could damage the food and the refrigerator itself.
3. Cold. The cold is distributed differently in the refrigerator. The coldest area is the top or the one closest to the freezer. We will place the food according to the refrigeration they need.
4. Upper zone. At the top, the coldest area, it is advisable to place those cooked products or ready-to-eat, such as ready-made tupperware or cold cuts.
5. Middle zone. In the central part of the refrigerator it is recommended to organize dairy products such as cheeses and yogurts and packaged foods.
6. Lower zone. Raw foods such as meat and fish are located in the least cold part of the refrigerator. These are the foods that most attention require and must be separated from the rest of the products.
7. Drawers. The refrigerator drawers are reserved for vegetables and those fruits that require refrigeration.
8. Not refrigerated. Some foods such as garlic, onions, avocado, tomatoes, bananas or potatoes can lose their flavor and also their nutrients if we store them in the refrigerator.
9. Expiration. Despite what some say health authorities, we should never give our children any product with the expiration date. To avoid wasting food, it is best to place the food from front to back according to its expiration date.
10. Doors. Reserve the refrigerator doors to store soft drinks, bottles, sauce cans and those products more resistant to the temperature changes so that they are not damaged when the door is continuously opened and closed.
