Junk Food Detox for Kids: A light detox can start a weight control program for an overweight child, who usually has toxic overload from too many chemicalized foods. A gentle detox normalizes body chemistry.
My JUNK FOOD DETOX for KIDS is a 3 day diet. Avoid highly processed, junky foods, red meats and dairy foods, except yogurt during this detox.
On rising: give citrus juice with 1 teaspoon of acidophilus liquid, or a glass of lemon juice and water with honey or maple syrup. Breakfast: offer fresh fruits, especially apples, pineapple, papaya or oranges. Add vanilla yogurt or rice milk if desired. Mid-morning: give fresh carrot juice. Add ¼ tsp. ascorbate vitamin C or Ester C crystals to neutralize body toxins. Lunch: give fresh raw crunchy veggies with a yogurt dip; or a fresh veggie salad with lemon/oil or yogurt dressing. Mid-afternoon: offer a refreshing herb tea, such as licorice or peppermint tea with honey. Dinner: give a fresh salad, with avocados, carrots, kiwi, romaine and other high vitamin A foods; and/or a cup of miso soup or other clear broth soup. Before bed: offer a relaxing herb tea, like chamomile tea. Add ¼ tsp. vitamin C or Ester C crystals; or a cup of Miso broth for strength.
Once the light detox is over, begin a healthy diet. Breakfast is a key for weight loss for kids. A high fiber breakfast cuts a child’s calories by up to 200 calories a day and holds appetite until lunchtime. Add fresh plant, enzyme-rich foods to the child’s daily diet for energy and fitness.
