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
age-appro­pri­ate diet

🥩 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?
