Scientists have concluded that they do not become sweet teeth, they are born. In other words, the sweet tooth appears in our taste palette even before it is born. That is why you will hardly have to persuade your baby to eat cookies or waffles!
However, in order for such treats to go to the child in favor, you need to wait for his first birthday. Until this time, the choice of safe children’s “desserts” is very limited. You can treat a six-month baby with a special biscuit, fresh biscuits or dryers.
Closer to the year (about 10 months) puddings (from cereals, cottage cheese, fruits and eggs), mousses made from berries and fruits will appear in its holiday menu (only as a thickener there should be semolina).
Actually, what we used to call sweets appears in the baby’s diet immediately after the first birthday: at this age, 10–15 g of treats for dessert or afternoon tea are relied upon. And the choice of the guests will depend on their composition.
Marshmallow and pastilles are made from natural ingredients: fruit and berry puree, whipped with sugar and egg whites. To this mass, then add hot sugar syrup and natural thickeners – molasses and agar.
Our advice: creamy or vanilla marshmallow and vanilla marshmallow are more suitable for children – there are no dyes in them.
Our advice: do not treat your baby with chewing marmalade, it is harsh, besides, there are many dyes in its composition.
Our advice: when a small child turns 3, treat him to a piece of milk or white chocolate.
Our advice: if you want to please a little whipped cream taste, better decorate them with fruit salad.
Marmalade is obtained from boiling a mixture of fruit and berry puree, sugar, molasses, agar, food acids, aromatic and coloring matter.
Yeast dough cakes can be prepared by a child from 1.5 years old – before his digestive system will be difficult to digest them.
Buns, cookies – butter and custard, crackers, waffles are not the best treat for children under 3 years old, because they include margarine, baking powder and other ingredients that the babies’ body is not ready to absorb.
Chocolate. Try to postpone familiarity with this delicacy until the child is 3 years old.
The fact is that chocolate is a concentrated cocktail made from different products (cocoa, dried milk, sugar, flavors), it has a lot of fat (mainly due to cocoa butter) and allergens (it’s all about the same cocoa, flavors, sugar ).
Cakes, cakes with whipped cream baby to try in 3 years.
Ice cream – they can please the 3-year-old sweet tooth. Our advice: treat your child to low-fat sundaes of ice cream – creamy or dairy.
So that the New Year’s treat would be a joy to the kid, do not upset him with the appearance of forbidden dishes.
Even if your baby loves sweet things, do not give in to the desire to make him pleasant and follow the rules we talked about. The fact is that the enthusiasm for such food can badly affect the child’s appetite, the health of his teeth and metabolism.
In addition, sweets overload the pancreas and can cause allergies.
Let sweets be for a small part of the holiday, and on weekdays, try to prepare him desserts from fruits and berries.
