Why does Nuova Terra packaging not show the place of origin for its products?

The harvest of the various raw materials does not occur throughout the year, due to the seasonal nature of some of them. To ensure the supply of raw materials throughout the year, our quality assurance specialists select the finest crops from all over the world.
Clearly, because of costs, we can not print new packaging with the various supply areas each time. This is why we prefer not to include the country of origin.

Is nutrition important when breastfeeding?

Naturally. Specifically, when breastfeeding, it is important for the mother to consume large amounts of water since this is the element of greatest importance in the composition of breast milk. It is also advisable to introduce liquids in the form of foods, such as broth, hearty soups, light soups, as well as fruits and vegetables. Fruits and vegetables, in particular, are very important for the intake of micronutrients, such as vitamins, and to maintain proper gastrointestinal transit. Certain foods and seasonings can affect the taste of milk, and because of this, it is important to evaluate the baby’s reactions during feeding. It is also important to limit the consumption of alcoholic beverages, such as wine and beer, or items containing caffeine, such as coffee, chocolate, and tea.

Are there any little tricks to avoid falling into temptation, and buying unhealthy foods?

To avoid buying foods that are not suited to proper nutrition, it is advisable to shop for food on a daily basis, even if this is an inconvenience, and to try and vary the foods you consume every day. Another bit of advice is to go the supermarket on “a full stomach,” so as to avoid making impulsive acquisitions that are dictated by momentary hunger pangs. We also recommended using a classic shopping basket instead of a cart in such a way as to increase physical activity, as much as possible, and to avoid lingering too long before the various shelves, and especially those shelves that contain unhealthy temptations.

Do cooking methods affect the nutritional value of dishes?

Of course! You have to pay careful attention to cooking methods and the preparation of dishes. This plays a very important role in the quality and quantity of nutrients. We advise against fried foods and “excessive or heavy dressings.” Try to use little or no salt. It is sometimes possible to enrich the flavor of dishes by replacing salt with spices or soy, or you can use lemon juice or vinegar.

How many times should fruits and vegetables be eaten during the day?

Fruits and vegetables, being rich in vitamins and minerals, should be eaten both at mealtimes and in between, multiple times throughout the day, and at least 5 times a day. As they are a good source of sugars, a nice seasonal fruit may be eaten as a snack, especially by children who require energy for their development.

What are the essential nutrients for our body during the day?

Breakfast, lunch, and dinner (i.e., the main meals) must be composed of energy-rich foods with nutrients, such as carbohydrates and saturated fats. In addition to these, proteins are indispensable for our bodily constitution. These may be found both in animal-origin and in vegetable-based foods, such as legumes. However, if it is true that proteins must always be present in our diet, it is equally true that their quantity must never be excessive. It is especially important over a week’s time to alternate the various types of protein (meat, 3-4 times per week; eggs and cured meats, 1 time per week; and fish, cheese, and legumes, 2-3 times per week).

How should one split up the daily nutritional intake?

During the day, it is appropriate to divide the daily nutritional intake into 5 meals: breakfast, a mid-morning snack, lunch, a second mid-afternoon snack, and finally dinner.

What type of food should be eaten during the summer?

With the arrival of summer, it is necessary to change our eating habits. This doesn’t mean skipping meals, but does means changing their composition by reducing caloric intake by about 200-300 Kcal. How? Very simple, by eating fewer fatty foods, particularly those of animal origin. But be on your guard! Reducing does not mean eliminating. Fats, in fact, even in summer, are essential components for our body, especially for the proper absorption of vitamins A, E, D, and K. A tip? Use raw extra-virgin olive oil for seasoning what you eat, and add oil-rich seeds to your salads. In summer, in fact, vegetables – as is true for fruit – are important not only for the reduction of calories, but also to replenish the water and minerals that are lost due to perspiration.
