As the sun grows more powerful and the days get longer, staying hydrated and well-nourished is key to sustaining families—especially our kids—through the heat! In this article, we discuss how to smartly adjust your family’s nutrition in accordance with the summer weather. Here are some tips on how to eat and feed smart this season.

Stay Hydrated 

Remember to stay cool and well-hydrated under the intense summer heat. Here’s what we recommend to maintain hydration:

  • Drink 3-4 liters of water daily.
  • Add coconut water to your diet—it contains natural electrolytes to keep you energized throughout the day.
  • Homemade fresh lime water with mint and natural forms of sugar is a great option too.
  • Buttermilk, also known as Chaas, is a refreshing drink to have once a day.

Eat Smart 

  • Opt for light vegetables such as cucumber, salad, pak choy, cabbage, beetroot, and a variety of peppers including red, green, and yellow, as well as green peas and mint. These choices help keep your meals refreshing and digestible.
  • Stick to vegetarian sources of protein like dairy products, tofu, yogurt, and light cheeses such as mozzarella and cottage cheese.
  • Enjoy summer fruits like watermelon, mangoes, muskmelon, and papaya.
  • Eat smaller portions at each meal and avoid oily, rich foods such as makhani, salan, and biryani.

Keep Your Immunity in Check

  • Sprinkle Moringa Amchur Spice Blend daily on your salads and dals. Just 100g contains the vitamin C equivalent of 30 lemons!
  • Incorporating daily protein additions to all meals is essential. The Feed Smart Power Packed Seeds Power is an excellent way to include protein daily—it contains 32g of protein per 100g, equivalent to about 6.5 eggs.
  • Choose millets and whole grains as sources of carbohydrates, like the Brahmi Millet Dosa from Feed Smart.
