What is a “diverse diet” and what are its benefits?

The varied diet is characterized by allowing different foods to be eaten from large variety groups, through different combinations daily. The benefits of this system are that the person who follows him over a long term, certainly gets all his food needs under any circumstances. If what is needed does not exist in one type of food, it will undoubtedly be available in another. If you do not eat enough nutrients at breakfast, you can compensate for this shortfall during your meal.

If your child has a healthy and varied diet, you will not need to calculate the amount he or she needs from any of the specific nutrients, because day by day and week after week, the deficiency will be compensated if any. This is a great advantage because calculating these ratios is very complicated! We know, for example, the amount of protein in 150 grams of fat-free lamb. But what is the degree of fat free? We also know the amount of vitamin C available in 100 grams of fresh raw cabbage, but what is the residual amount that the body benefits from after the cabbage has been picked, transported, stored, cooked, and kept warm? But in a diverse diet, such complex questions should not bother you.
