Consumption Of Pineapple In Children Aged 13 Years?
can you eat pineapple or not. I am a 13 year old junior high school child
Hi Alan, thanks for the question for HealthReplies.com
Pineapple is a tropical fruit that is very rich in fiber and vitamin C. Pineapple can be consumed by all ages including those of you who are currently 13 years old as long as you do not have an allergy to pineapples. Pineapple contains an enzyme called bromelain. Bromelain is an enzyme that helps break down protein (therefore pineapple can also be used as a meat tenderizer). Consumption of too much pineapple can cause unpleasant taste to pain in the mouth and tongue due to the presence of this bromelain in pineapples. Sometimes consuming too much pineapple can also cause symptoms such as abdominal pain, diarrhea, nausea and vomiting in some people. In addition, because it tastes quite sour, consumption of pineapple is not recommended for people with stomach disorders.
If you do not have a pineapple allergy or certain stomach disorders, you can just eat pineapple, but you should limit your consumption and don't overeat.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
