Exotic products in baby food.
Adults nowadays available many gastronomic pleasures. Share these with your child overseas pleasure or not?
The ability to digest this or that food, like the exterior, is inherited. But heredity is better taken into account.
The ability to extract nutrients from those or other products without damage to health is also inherited. Asian nations, for example, actively consume soy products, taking from them the maximum benefit for themselves, while the Europeans is unlikely: soy – not native to their product.
What good native products? They are almost never caused protest from the body. And other people – often triggered as the provocateurs, causing allergies.
Taking all the above into account, pediatricians and allergists unanimously repeat: children learn best products produced in the area where they were born and their parents.
The most dangerous overseas.
Products that provoke an allergic reaction in children, most others are exotic seafood (shrimp, mussels, crabs and so on. N.) Overseas fruits and vegetables (mango, avocado, and so on. N.), Citrus and kiwi and pineapple.
It can be considered relatively safe banana, but high levels of serotonin in this fruit, which can trigger an allergic reaction, and requires him to be treated with some caution.
In addition to the overseas delicacies “improper origin” there is one drawback – they are chemically processed. To tender fruit lossless survived the road, they are treated with a special chemical composition. These products for allergy sufferers is not only dangerous, but very dangerous – they are double agents provocateurs. So much more sensible to offer your child the seasonal fruits and vegetables grown in the nearest to your place of residence regions.
Pre-guessing how your child will react to any other food that is difficult. Some kids may be from an early age to eat citrus fruits, and the other on a banana and covered with a crust diateznoy. Therefore, you should be careful, especially at an early age, when a child is just beginning to get acquainted with the adult food – from exotic to opt up to the moment when the baby will not be executed at least 3-4 years. Establishment, strengthening and development of the gastrointestinal tract, and the immune system occurs gradually, and allergy prevention is better than cure.
Jar with a surprise
We should also be said about the can food, which include exotic for residents of the middle band fruit: peaches, apricots, and so on. F. Little Russians and they often “give allergy”, so that it is possible is better to choose a jar of fruit easier (apples, pears, currants).
Pope – from the south, my mother – from the north. And the baby?
In our time, there was quite a lot of international families. The question arises: how to feed their children? In a mono-ethnic violence is likely to correct to “genetically usual” option. What mother ate during pregnancy than her ancestors ate, then the child should be prepared.
In mixed families can find out who went to the kid, “stomach”, but in practice. Often, similar in appearance to one parent, the baby inherits the predisposition of other food.
Doing tests or wait?
In an effort to prevent disease, many parents make the child allergoproby to know in advance what you can feed crumbs. We hasten to disappoint you: allergoobsledovanie of serum (MAST or EIA) will give a real result that we can rely in preparing the menu baby only in one case – if the samples will be carried out on the product, with whom the child is familiar, that is, it regularly uses.
That is why the baby to explore and a half years – a waste of time.
Moreover, we should not think that allergy tests carried out once, determines allergic status of the child for a lifetime. The organism grows, adapts, changing his reactions and the ability to absorb a particular food.
A classic example – lactase deficiency: after the birth of the baby can not consume milk, even the breast, and the child has to feed the soy mixture. And at the age of five in his body is undergoing serious change, and he was able to drink milk, eat cheese and other dairy products.
Baby entertained for a bit
If you’re determined to teach a child to exotic foods, beginning with the first complementary foods, gradually enter the overseas joy. It is better and easier than doing tests and risk the health of the native kiddies. For example, for a week, let’s against the backdrop of the usual supply one new product, say, a small portion of a banana. Carefully monitor the baby – if there is no reaction, banana suits your baby. Since then, he becomes part of the normal diet. Also, gradually introduce other new products.
If the child appeared allergies, you should immediately cancel the suspicious product and seek medical advice.
The specialist will analyze heredity crumbs, given the history of allergic mothers and fathers, and give advice. As a rule, for 2-3 years product will be banned. Tactics “to accustom the body” to tear away food, constantly provoking him small portions, is not working.
A child with a strong stomach
Separately, it must be said about children whose stomach, as they say, to “digest even nails.” Remarkably, when the baby is strong enough to to cope with lobster, avocado and pineapple drizzled with strawberry syrup. But to exploit this feature of the child can not indefinitely.
Some parents feed their child all in a row – is in progress and the Chinese and Japanese, and Mexican food. And not a simple provoke an allergic reaction, but a real allergic explosion, after which it is very difficult to bring the child’s body in order.
No matter how healthy the baby was not worth it to overload.
What do you want?
In conclusion, I want to say the main thing: the need for exotic food is not produced in the body of the baby. This mom and dad want to see the child receives the maximum possible and the impossible. A child should be stronger, gain strength and health.
To exotic cuisine, doctors are advised to begin to teach children not earlier than five years, but in understanding it would be necessary to do it much later.
