Less valuable and junk food
Cakes, cookies and pies. main objection to these dishes based on the fact that they consist mainly of refined starch, sugar and fat.They contain many calories they quickly saturate and the child but not practically give him salts, vitamins, fiber and protein.Sometimes referred to as "junk" food.They deceive the child, causing feel full, while he is hungry or deprived of his appetite for other, more wholesome food.
not need too suspicious of such a dish and not allow your child to eat cake at a birthday party.Only when they are constantly consuming harmful.It makes no sense to cook them at home, if there is no special occasion.
particularly dangerous variety of cakes with cream.They bacteria multiply rapidly, if not to keep them in the refrigerator.They are often the cause of food poisoning.
Sweets also undesirable in a child's diet.They quickly satisfy your appetite, deprived appetite for more wholesome food and contribute to tooth decay.If a child eats porridge or fruit without added sugar, do not
candy, ice cream, fruit water both sweet and "inferior" foods bring with them a special problem because they are given between feedings, when they have the greatest impact on appetite and teeth, and because the children love them.There is no reason why a child two years of age and older from time to time does not allow to eat ice cream or candy after meals, when they enjoy the whole family.But in between eating sweets should be avoided, and even after a meal does not give them regularly.It is believed that a particularly bad effect on candy teeth in the mouth because sugar is stored for a long time.
It is easier to teach a small child sweets, if you do not keep them in the house, and ice cream, and fruit not buy water.It is much harder to do with children of school age, when all around are enjoying this.The mother does not love her child seemed to be the exception, or a sissy.If he eats sweets sometimes, it is better to let him together with other children.But if he constantly calls them, and especially if he has bad teeth, parents to strictly limit the amount of sweets and let them only on special occasions.
The fact that the child loves sweets, often blame the parents themselves. Kids love sweets above all because their growing bodies recognize in them a wealth of calories.But not necessarily to not spoiled child demanding them more and more.Some small children do not like sweets.Dr. Clara Davis in their experiments to provide children with a variety of natural food and found that in the end only a small amount of the sweet food children need to run.
I believe that irrational desire for sweets is caused primarily by parents.The mother tries to force the child to eat up the vegetables and said: "As long as do not eat spinach, do not get ice cream" or "If you eat the whole mess, I'll give you candy."When something does not give (or give as a reward), it enhances the child's desire.It turns out the result, directly opposite to what the mother sought: the baby is no longer loves spinach or porridge and more loves ice cream and candy.As a joke, I say that the only safe way to buy baby food, it is to say to him: "Do not get the spinach until doesh ice cream."And seriously advise never not hold one dish is not eaten drugoe.Let the child believes that the ordinary food as tasty as candy.If one day he first saw the dessert and ask him to give willingly.
Corn, rice and flour are less valuable than a meal and oats. Maize and rice are relatively poor in vitamins and valuable proteins (even before treatment), compared with oats, rye and wheat flour of a rough grinding.Grain Processing deprives him of most of the vitamins, minerals and fiber.It should therefore be less likely to give products such as cereal grains from refined white, white bread, pasta, spaghetti, noodles, crackers (other than those of wheat flour), rice pudding and hominy, etc.The same applies to desserts of these products are: corn starch, rice, tapioca.If you use rice as a substitute in potato porridge and puddings, it is better to take the unpolished brown rice.Enriched white bread contains some initial vitamin B complex, but it still lacks the components of white bread from wheat flour.
you decide that I am exaggerating the danger of sweets and starches.I do not want to turn you into a fanatic who scolds friends if they served white bread, or haunting the food health food stores in search of crude and crude products.But there are many children who get their daily dose of carbohydrates in the form: breakfast - rice or semolina (very sweet) and a slice of white bread with jam;Lunch - pasta, white bread and jam;snack - ice cream;dinner - cereal, cake and corn pudding.Even if a child eats and vegetables, fruit, meat and milk, he still gets two-thirds of the power in the form of "junk" food.
Coffee and tea for children not suitable, because they displace milk and because they contain a substance stimulating caffeine.Most children and so excited enough.The increase to milk the baby tablespoon of coffee or tea is allowed only if the child likes to do everything, "as an adult."But the majority of children easier and better not even begin to try these drinks.
Frozen food as good for children as fresh or preserved, if prepared correctly.When freezing as the preparation changing the chemical composition of food;in this form it better absorbed - and the people, and bacteria.In other words, cooked or frozen food spoils more quickly than raw and uncooked, because toxic bacteria quickly multiply in it.
If kept in the refrigerator for a long time, is likely to spoil the milk and dishes made with milk (pudding, pastry, filling), vegetables, poultry, minced meat.
