Patient Question

Hello Doctor,


My child has a specific eating habit. How can I ensure they receive proper nutrition despite their limited food preferences?


Answered by Dr. Lorela Dy


Thank you for reaching out to Dr. Galen. Please find the below response to your query.


I recommend following the MyPlate recommendation for every meal. This approach offers a unique way to achieve a balanced diet by dividing the plate into four parts: vegetables, fruits, rice or bread, and meat or fish, with each section making up one-quarter of the plate. This helps ensure you get the necessary nutrients for optimal health.
