Dr. Neha Bansal from Bansal Global Hospital identifies foods that you should not give to your children before 10

When it comes to your kids, everything needs extra care and a bit of reliable research. And when it comes to their diet, you have to be extra cautious as serving them wrong kind of foods might be hazardous to their health. Generally, a baby starts eating light food from an age of about six months. As he grows up, we try to get him used to the food everyone eats. But there are certain foods which you must keep completely away from your child at least till he turns ten! Here’s the list you can refer to:

Processed Meat

Most of the processed meat has to go through various chemical treatments to increase its shelf life. Other than this, the amount of salt is beyond normal and is not good for heart health. Processed meats are also known to cause bowel cancer. It is therefore recommended that it doesn’t make it to your child’s plate.

Artificially Sweetened food

Artificial sweeteners such as aspartame and sucralose may cause more harm than good. They are marketed as ‘diet’ or ‘sugar free’ but are slow poison for kids. It is found in gelatine, ice creams and candies etc. These foods may lead to improper brain development in kids.


Carbonated beverages are not just dehydrating but also cause sugar disorder like diabetes. Soda depletes tooth enamel and makes tooth brittle. These beverages are also harmful for the gut of your kid.

Canned foods

Canned foods such as fish and pickled vegetables cause food poisoning. These foods also go through a lot of processing and are low in nutrients. So, it is better that they make a distance from your child’s diet.

Refined oil

Refined oils are highly bleached and processed which erodes all the nutrients found in oils. They are not only low in nutrients but also high in trans fat which cause cholesterol. Be a smart parent and use other healthier oils in your kitchen, that too in low amounts.


Caffeine may adversely affect the central nervous system in children. Kids may face sleep disturbances and difficulty concentrating. Caffeine may be addicting and cause long term health problems.
Regulate your child’s eating habits and keep him safe! For more dietary and other consultancy prefer going to a child specialist/ paediatrician than depending on home remedies and random recommendations.
