The digestive system of children is very fragile and is not intended for many products. Some parents do not even suspect that danger lurks their children daily.
In addition to the fact that all the food in the children’s menu should be fresh and high-quality, there are certain types of them that are prohibited for consumption.
Even an adult should comply with the measure of their use, and what can we say about children. Yes, mushrooms are rich in protein and many useful substances, but at the same time they have the ability to absorb all the harmful substances from the soil, which is important in our ecology. This, of course, is about forest mushrooms.
Store mushrooms (champignons, oyster mushrooms) should also be removed from the child’s diet – the children’s body simply does not contain enzymes to digest this type of food.
There is no benefit from them, and there is no harm in the mass – high content of sugar, dyes, preservatives, irritation of the gastrointestinal tract. Moreover, they completely quench their thirst.
Due to the fact that the liver in children finishes its formation by the age of 9, it is not worth overloading this vital organ. Therefore, in the children’s menu should not be too fatty foods. These include sweets, fatty meats, dairy products with a high fat content, etc.
I recently read that the number of fat cells is laid in a person under the age of 5 years. That is why many of us try to lose weight does not bring results. So, you should avoid the temptation to once again feed the baby with something tasty and force him to eat, even if the child refuses.
Fast food and snacks
It is obvious that in the diet of children there should not be chips, spicy crackers and other products of unknown origin. In addition to the load on the liver, their use is fraught with problems with other organs – the pancreas, stomach and intestines.
Already, a whole generation of teenagers who grew up on the newly emerged McDonalds and chips, suffers from colitis, gastritis and other troubles.
Contrary to popular belief about the usefulness of chocolate, its use should also be limited. It is prohibited for children with dysfunctions of the pancreas and allergies.
Due to the high content of fats, calories and nutritional supplements, you should minimize the use of this delicacy to a minimum.
We – this is what we eat – the state of children’s skin, hair and internal organs fully reflects the quality of the food that the child eats. After all, the stomach is not a permanent processor of everything that gets into it, much less children.
Therefore, you should carefully monitor the composition, fat content and calorie foods that your child consumes.
