Healthy Baby Food

Healthy Baby Food

The main principles of a healthy and rational baby food aren't complicated at all: food should be as variable as possible and be evenly distributed on the number of calories during the day. It is also important to follow the regime and frequency of feeding. Diet also implies a correct selection of food for children. Feeding a baby with a fast-food will definitely not be a wise choice.

Adipose is useless for our organism, indigestible and often harm to it. That's why a high in fat meat – be it a chicken, pork or a ham - should be excluded from the daily ration of a baby. All useful fats for a healthy growth can be found in a vegetable oil.

Sweets, chocolate and butter biscuits aren't helping to improve children's health. Any fruits are good for children, but it is better to start feeding with small portions, observing the baby's reaction on a new exotic food to avoid some possible allergic reaction.

Usually most of juices are made from concentrates and then reconstituted with water. That's why it is better to give your baby a fresh-squeezed juice, or buy a special one, for baby feeding.

The more variable food your baby gets, the more confident you may be for him to get all nutrients he needs for healthy growing and development. Proteins, fats and carbohydrates should be properly distributed during the day. Food at the first half of the day should be high-calorie. The most optimal breakfast for a child is buckwheat with milk and one egg. Such a combination of food gives him all amounts of irreplaceable amino acids, needed for proper growth.

Long-term researches allow us to claim the lack of parent's knowledge, not the family wealth to be the main reason of the disorders in baby's feeding. Parents need that knowledge, because a child should get maximum of nutrients from food. The basis of the child's health is being built during the first years of his life and food plays the main role there. It is important to be understood by both children and adults.
