Starting Children Early on ZeroCarb Pizza Crusts
by John Pena on Apr 12, 2022
What’s the best age to start feeding your children a healthy diet? Developing healthy eating habits early is much easier when you start with food without lots of added sugars and artificial flavors.
Suppose your family has a history of gluten sensitivity or Celiac Disease (CD). In that case, it’s a good idea to be aware of the symptoms so you can quickly recognize if your child is experiencing similar issues. Gluten sensitivity is reported to be under-treated and under-recognized and is estimated to be up to six times more prevalent than CD.
Since pizza is a fun food that most families enjoy regularly, we are delighted that our ZeroCarb LYFE pizza crusts are not only gluten-free, but are also other “-frees” too—sugar-free, grain-free, dairy-free, nut-free, carb-free, and guilt-free! You can enjoy made-from-scratch pizza that won’t cause any negative side effects.
Kids love to help in the kitchen, and letting them create their own pizza is a fun family activity. When cooking together, it’s an excellent opportunity to talk about where our food comes from and how it helps our bodies. Set up a pizza bar of toppings and let them choose their favorites. Another bonus is that picky eaters are more likely to eat something they've made themselves!
Cooking is a fun way to learn meal planning, math (measuring ingredients), and chemistry (baking is all about science in the kitchen), and your children won’t even realize they’re learning valuable skills! The fun doesn’t have to stop with pizza—ZeroCarb crusts are also great for paninis, quesadillas, homemade chips, flatbreads, and wraps!
Thinking about dining out for pizza? Don't worry—our ZeroCarb crusts are showing up at more and more locations as a menu option. However, if your local pizzeria doesn’t offer our crusts, we’d be honored for them to give us a try! You can let us know who/where your favorite pizza hangout is, and we’ll be happy to reach out to them.
We’d love to see pics of your next family pizza night! Click here to send us your ZeroCarb LYFE story, and maybe you’ll end up featured in one of our upcoming posts. The kids would really get a kick out of that! Thanks for being part of the #ZeroCarbLYFE movement!
