Develop a one-day nutritionally balanced menu for a school age child, using low glycemic index foods

Develop a one-day nutritionally balanced menu for a school age child, using low glycemic index foods.

I’m studying for my Nutrition class and don’t understand how to answer this. Can you help me study?

Studies have shown that children who consume a breakfast that provides foods with a low glycemic index demonstrate better cognitive ability than those who either skip breakfast or eat foods with a high glycemic index.

  1. Using table 3.3 page 113 (3rd ed. textbook); pages 95 – 96 (4th ed) to develop a one-day nutritionally balanced menu for a school age child, using low glycemic index foods, with foods from all food groups included.
  2. Include the glycemic index score for each food. Since this menu should have low glycemic index foods, only include foods with a glycemic index score of 50 or below. Include the glycemic score for each food.
  3. Total calories for the day should be 1500 – 1800. Include calorie amount for each food individually. Show foods as meals.
  4. Be sure to indicate the serving size for each food, such as 1 cup, etc.
  5. Format; List food, amount of each food, calories, and glycemic score in columns, moving from left to right.

Here is a link that may be helpful. Glycemic Index Scores (https://watermark.silverchair.com/5.pdf?token=AQEC…) Scroll down to page 9. Be sure to use the column “GI (Glucose = 100)” in the last column on the FAR LEFT for the glycemic score for your foods.

Use this database to provide calories for each food. Food Database (https://fdc.nal.usda.gov/)
