A mother always knows best what her child needs. However, if you look at the comments of bloggers, forums for moms or sit in the chats of parents, it becomes clear that moms often have no common opinion on any issue!
🥪 The topic of nutrition, and specifically vitamins, is no exception. Some are ready to literally feed the kids with a variety of pills, others balance the diet and occasionally give vitamins separately, while others believe that with a normal diet, the child gets enough vitamins. Who is right?
👉 Let’s start with the main thing. If you believe nutritionists, then proper nutrition for a baby is based on the observance of three simple principles.
built-in power supply
regular intake of essential nutrients and vitamins
🥩 Proteins — 3.5 grams per 1 kg of weight. Meat, fish, eggs, dairy products. 🧈Do not forget about fats — 3 grams per 1 kg, so we cook with butter or vegetable oil
🥖Carbohydrates — 15 grams per 1 kg, it gives the baby energy and is found in vegetables, sweets, bread and cereals
Omega‑3 fatty acids are found in salmon and mackerel, olive oil and nuts. With their help, the work of the blood vessels of the brain improves.
👨🏻⚕️To quote Yevgeny Komarovsky: “It’s hard for me to give exact data for Russia, but, say, in the USA every year 60 thousand people are hospitalized with severe poisoning after taking vitamins, and three-quarters of the victims are children. But everything related to vitamins can be expressed in one sentence: if the child is provided with a complete, varied diet, he does not need any additional vitamins! This is the position taken by the World Health Organization.
👦🏼 Where does your baby get vitamins from, the right diet, or do you still add something else, like ascorbic acid or jelly bears?
