If moms think that bread lack nutrients or children should eat less when sick, then you’re wrong.

1.     Children need to eat lean meat a lot in order to prevent anaemia.

Iron deficiency is popular in children. According to Centre for Disease Control and Prevention located in Atlanta (USA), 9% of children in the age of 1-2 have iron deficiency. This number is down to 3% at children from 3-5 years old and 2% at 6-to-11-year-old ones.

Children needn’t eat too much lean meat.

Children needn’t eat too much lean meat.

Children can receive enough protein in their regimens that they don’t need to eat so much lean meat (this is good news since lean is tough and hard chewing to babies although it contains iron that is easily absorbed). For lazy eating babies, we can fulfill their iron needs by feed them milk, eggs, fowl’s meat, fish, red beans, bread and dried fruits like raisin…

Babies under 10 years old need at least 10mg iron a day. If you think that your baby lack iron, you should have a conversation with the pediatrician about how to provide it with multivitamins that contains iron. 

2.     Not allowing your kids eating fatty foods to avoid obesity

Every day, children need about 30-40% of calories from fat to meet the need of brain because of the special need of amino acid and other fat components of brain that the physical development increases fast.

The suitable quantity of fat for children under 1 year old is 3.5g/kg per day. The best is providing children with fat from vegetable oil, fish fat which contain rich omega-3 helping increase body resistance, reducing infections, and also supporting circulation system.

It’s wrong not to allow kids eating fat in order to avoid obesity.

3.     Providing multivitamins for kids that refuse to eat vegetables

There are many kids that avoid eating vegetables, but they do not lack vitamins or essential minerals. Sweet nutritional foods are fresh fruits. “Fruits can compare with vegetables for the amount of vitamin and fibrous matter.”- said Jo Ann Hattner (Pediatric nutrition expert in Palo Alto, California). For that reason, you must ensure 5 vegetable-and-fruit serves a day for them.

If children don’t touch any carrot, apricot and water melon are good backup solutions because of their great content of vitamin and carotene. Strawberries and orange can satisfy the need of folic acid for babies that refuse to eat spinach. Bananas helping children who refuse potatoes have enough potassium. And, citrus can replace broccoli for its content of vitamin C.

However, even though your kids avoid vegetables, you still have to stimulate them. Vegetables have a great number of vitamin and essential minerals that they shouldn’t miss.

4.     Feeding your kids with lots of carrots

According to expert, carrot supplement should be sensible.

According to expert, carrot supplement should be sensible.

Though carrot is really good for baby’s health, moms shouldn’t overuse it. Letting your kids eat lots of carrots and tomatoes is not good. Eating too much carrot can bring aneamia to your babies so that they are easily infected with jaundice, appetite loss, mental instability, restlessness. Even at night, they are usually startled, scared, cry and have other symptoms.

According to expert, carrot supplement should be sensible. Children need to be fed with carrots twice a week and 30-50g each time. That would inhibit the development of cancer cells.

5.     Children should eat fewer when sick

You shouldn’t cut down on children’s foods. They need every nutrient and liquid from foods to fight against diseases. But, if you kids don’t eat much, you shouldn’t be worried; when they’re sick, let them eat what they like.

6.     Only using vegetable juice

Some people believe that broth is nutritious. So, after simmering bones or meat, most of them take off the bones or meat and keep the broth to cook with vegetables.

But, nutritional analysis shows that although protein (meat, fish, shrimp…) has been kept in the solid part for a long time, it still does not go into the broth, so does the solid part of vegetables. So, if you want your kids to receive enough nutrients, you have to let them eat the solid part of foods by finely chopping, and having it well cooked. Otherwise, your babies can’t absorb enough fibers in vegetables.

7.     Juice is a wonderful drink

The high level of sugar in juice can destroy the enamel and stomach discomfort.

Though the fresh juice is definitely more nutritious than soda, it does not mean that you should drink it whenever you feel thirsty. There are limitations of kid’s juice drinking. Without that, kids could find appetite in other foods.  Moreover, the high level of sugar in juice can destroy the enamel and stomach discomfort.

The nutrition expert recommends that the greatest amount of juice is 100-120ml/day. Water’s still the best choice for thirst.

8.     Crushing out every food

By crushing out foods, moms accidentally take away children’s chewing opportunities.  Crushed foods create swallowing habit to children. Because of that, they can’t feel the taste of food, leading to anorexia.

In fact, moms shouldn’t overuse blender to make crushed food. Teach your kids to eat by themselves, so when the time of eating comes at kindergarten, they can quickly fall in line with the same age group.

9.     White bread has no nutrients.

White bread is the best choice.

White bread is the best choice.

White bread which is made of flour that has quality is still the no.1 choice to children. White bread has fibrous matter that helps prevent constipation, heart disease, high blood pressure, and diabetes. Besides, white bread can be provided iron and B-group vitamins like niacin, folic acid, thiamin, riboflavin.

10.  Over-prioritizing protein

Some mothers put so much meat, or many fish, eggs in children’s powder just because they think it’s nutritious and good for them.

In fact, it is not good because the high level of protein easily cause gastrointestinal disorder in children and increase the risk of having anorexia.
