at night, the mothers here say, if you are pregnant, don’t eat sticky rice, it can make the baby in the womb lisp in the future. Is that true? Because I love sticky rice, and I’m almost 8 months pregnant. Thank you very much doctor..

1 Answer:

Hi Mardliah, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Sticky rice is a type of grain plant that has the same shape and content as rice. When cooked, sticky rice will have a more sticky shape than rice. Usually sticky rice is consumed by people who are on a diet because it has a lower carbohydrate content than rice. Apart from being a source of energy, sticky rice is also useful for fighting free radicals, preventing anemia, bone health, and reducing heart risk. In 100 g of sticky rice, there are 97 calories, with 0.2% total fat, 7% carbohydrates and 4% protein. Because the content is the same as rice, if you eat sticky rice it can cause slurred speech, then it's the same as saying eating rice can cause slurred speech. So it is not true that the consumption of sticky rice in the mother causes certain physical conditions in the baby.


While lisp itself has 4 causes, some of them can be changed and some are not. The causes are:

Lack of maturation of lip and tongue coordination. This happens in toddlers, and with practice will go away by itself at an older age.
Abnormalities in the structure of the tongue, disorders of the brain and hearing. The slur caused by this happens more because of congenital, so it tends to be difficult to change.
Environmental factor. This can happen when parents let their child lisp and instead follow the child. The child will feel that the slurred pronunciation is the correct one.
Psychological factors. Similar to the previous point, the basis of this fourth factor is imitation. The child saw that by saying slurred, the people around him would be more affectionate, more attentive, laugh and all that so he maintained this.


So of the four causes, none of them are caused by the consumption of sticky rice, especially since sticky rice itself is similar to rice. What's important is that you don't eat too much of anything, and that your nutrition is adjusted as you are now pregnant. Congratulations on your pregnancy, and have a smooth pregnancy and delivery.


So, hopefully useful.
