Hello, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com
Adequate nutrition of children will appear from an increase in body weight and height every month. Where based on the growth curve of the child will be on the normal line. However, if this does not happen, it means the mother needs to assess the child's nutritional intake.
Just like adults, children have a main meal schedule 3 times a day and an interlude menu 2 times a day. Is your child's eating schedule like this?
In addition to the eating schedule, the nutritional coverage of each meal portion must be considered by Mother. In the child's main diet, must meet the value of carbohydrates, proteins, fats and vitamins and minerals. Carbohydrates can be obtained from rice, potatoes, noodles, corn and others. Protein can be obtained from fish, beef, chicken, eggs, shrimp, squid and others. Fat can be obtained from olive oil, cheese, butter, virgin olive oil extracts and others. Vitamins and minerals can be obtained from vegetables and fruit. For children's snacks, you can give milk, avocado juice, orange juice and others. Children can also be given biscuits and fruit pieces.
Portions can be increased with each meal by looking at the child's response.
Give priority to giving milk to the child's distraction at least once a day. Because milk contains calcium minerals which are needed for the growth of children's bone length. In order to contain fat, it is recommended that food ingredients such as olive oil or virgin olive oil or cheese or butter extracts be put into children's meals that are ready to be served. Also pay attention to cooking time. If it takes too long it will cause the nutritional value to be damaged. We recommend choosing steamed food instead of boiling it. This is to maintain the nutritional value of food ingredients.
If these tips fail, consult your pediatrician or nutritionist.
So hopefully useful, thank you.
