Experts comment on the misunderstanding of colonial children
When asking parents to take care of their children, which aspect of the headache is most likely to be the “eating” aspect.
Friends often complain that their children do not like to eat, and they are partial to eclipses and picky eaters. They do not know what to do.
Hou Jianghong, a pediatric expert and chief physician of the Henan Provincial Hospital of Traditional Chinese Medicine, told reporters that the question most parents asked him was “how to eat” and “what to eat”, but he also noticed that there are many parents in the process of replacing their children.Misunderstanding.
Hou Jianghong pointed out these error areas one by one, hoping that parents and friends can “seat the right seat” and improve.
Misunderstanding 1: In order for the child to grow tall and fat, he should eat more food to supplement the nutrition. The child is too thin and short, which may be caused by poor gastrointestinal function. If the parents then let him eat a lot of nutritious alternative foods,It is bound to increase the burden on the gastrointestinal tract, which may lead to worse absorption and can be eaten.
It is better to give your child some light, low-quality food, such as porridge, pasta, etc., to help the child regulate gastrointestinal function.
Misunderstanding 2: Milk is the best food. Drinking more milk is good for children’s health. I often see advertisements saying that drinking milk is good for children’s health. Parents also think that milk is the best food.
Some children are anorexia, partial eclipse, do not eat well, but love to drink milk, parents think this is also very good, anyway, milk is nutritious.
In fact, milk is a liquid high-protein food. Drinking too much will not only cause a burden on the child’s stomach, but also not conducive to strengthening the function of gastrointestinal motility, which will cause the child to have internal heat and dry stool.
What’s more, just drinking milk can’t meet all the nutrition of children’s growth needs.
Misunderstanding 3: A glass of milk before bed helps sleep. The human body goes to sleep at night, and the turbine also enters a state of rest. Allowing the child to drink milk before going to bed will affect the rest of the gastrointestinal tract, and the child will not sleep well.
It is recommended that children drink milk once a day, and it is best to put it in breakfast.
Misunderstanding 4: No matter what you eat, it is “ben” when you eat it. Your child does not like to eat and snacks. Many parents feel that whatever they eat, they can eat in their belly anyway.
In fact, the gastrointestinal tract needs rest. To regulate the gastrointestinal function, it is necessary to make the gastrointestinal tract work at work, rest during the rest, and frequent snacks will cause gastrointestinal disorders.
Eating too many snacks will affect the eating of meals, forming a vicious circle, which is very bad for children’s stomach.
In addition, there are many food additives in snacks, which are very detrimental to children’s health.
Misunderstanding 5: Let children eat health supplements. Parents are always worried that their children are undernourished, so they give their children colostrum and protein powder.
These things didn’t exist before, so what about the previous children?
Isn’t your child healthy now?
In fact, it is enough to supplement these nutrients from the daily diet. Too much extra is not good.
Misunderstanding 6: Drink more yogurt, which is good for digestion of children. The first thing parents think of is yogurt. They think that yogurt contains probiotics and high nutritional content, so that children can drink more yogurt. In fact, it will actually change the pH of the child ‘s body.Not conducive to establishing good gastrointestinal function.
Especially children with long-term repeated respiratory infections may be caused by poor gastrointestinal function, and it is not recommended to drink more yogurt.
Myth 7: It ‘s good to eat fruit before meals. If you are trying to lose weight, I do n’t object to eating this, but if not, do n’t participate in eating fruits before meals.
Many children eat fruit before meals, but ca n’t eat any more, which affects normal meals.
When is it better to eat fruit?
It is recommended to eat fruits within half an hour after shortening. Mixing fruits and food will be more conducive to food digestion and absorption, and prevent oral cleaning and protection.
Myth 8: Anorexia in children, zinc supplementation can promote anorexia and anorexia are not all caused by zinc deficiency. In fact, it is mainly caused by poor gastrointestinal function. After all, zinc is a heavy metal, which supplements the child’s health.
Parents should find the root cause of their children’s anorexia, correct their children’s bad eating habits, and fundamentally solve the problem of anorexia.
