“Why is meat in jars the pink one?”
This feature is explained by the technology of cooking baby food. When we cook meat at home, in a saucepan or a double boiler, where we cook it, oxygen inevitably gets in and changes the color of the meat.
While in the production of oxygen to the contents of the container with mashed potatoes is minimized. And here is the result!
By the way, this technology gives us some other bonuses.
Here is a comment by a specialist Tatiana Borisova, an expert in the production of baby food. “Minimizing the access of oxygen to the product, in other words, its tightness, allows us to preserve all other nutritional properties for a long time: protein and vitamins do not decompose, and fat does not oxidize. In addition, the product retains its food safety, it does not develop dangerous microflora, as it happens if you cook it at home. ”
“We started feeding with porridge, and now the baby does not want to eat vegetables! What should we do?”
Try giving him vegetables with cereal. For example, mix rice with cauliflower or pumpkin, buckwheat with zucchini.
Gradually increase the proportion of vegetables in porridge, and after a while do not add any cereal to them at all. Be patient: it may take time for your baby to get used to a new taste.
Solve this problem will need to be sure. Children love porridge, so familiarity with it usually passes without problems. And sometimes things are going so well that moms start to use it, arguing something like this: why try to feed the baby with vegetable vegetables that are undesirable to him, if there is such a tasty substitute – porridge?
We hurry to disappoint you: porridge should not be cooked several times a day. Firstly, it will prevent you from completing the task that the feeding introduction program should solve: you will not be able to shape the baby’s taste in relation to all products, and you will not be able to create its menu so that it contains different components. Secondly, you should not rejoice at the fact that, having tasted the porridge, the child began to recover well: a lot of weight is not yet an indicator of health.
On the contrary, sometimes it causes problems, such as rickets or anemia.
10-15 times you need to treat your baby with any novelty. Only after that you can decide whether the child had to taste a new dish or not.
Thinking about how to please the baby? When it comes to the smallest, the choice of options is small.
But there is a solution: add a “zest” to the products familiar to your child. And here is a combination that will benefit children from 9-10 months – cinnamon with apples.
What is the use? Essential oils in the composition of cinnamon will help the work of the stomach and intestines, improve the appetite of the crumbs.
How to choose cinnamon? Light brown (rather than red) cinnamon from Ceylon is more suitable for babies: it is softer, it has less bitterness, and the composition of the spice itself will be better.
For example, it contains much less coumarin – a substance unsafe for small ones. Compare: in Ceylon cinnamon we will find only 0.02 g / kg, and in some others up to 2 g / kg! How much cinnamon to add?
To taste and quite a bit.
