FOOD DIVERSIFICATION: Mistakes to avoid
When we begin the Food diversification of baby, we all wish to do our best but here, it is not so simple. Between our bad habits anchored for years, the erroneous information that one can find and the disagreements between the specialists, we are not immune from errors. To help you, VITAMEAL BABY gives you some rules that cannot be called into question.
Follow the guide!
DO NOT HAVE BABY TO FINISH HIS/HER PLATE
Yes, even if our parents tanned us so that our plate is empty before going out of table, it is very bad!
Firstly, you could block baby; secondly, it is a bad habit that is difficult to discard in adulthood and this can cause overweight or even obesity.
The important thing is that the baby has his daily dose of milk and that his growth is evolving as it should. So if your child has already eaten well and closes the mouth in front of your nth full spoon, it is because he is no longer hungry. Do not force it!
If, on the contrary, baby feeds little, do not hesitate to consult his pediatrician.
DO NOT GIVE BABY THE SAME MEALS AS YOU
Baby is a small being with the digestive system still immature then dishes in granny sauce, canned food and other prepared supermarket meals are to proscribe absolutely! Too rich in fat, too salty, too sweet; they are not suited for babies.
DO NOT SALT BABY DISHES
As we know, we absorb too much salt and this causes heart problems in the long term. So even if his dish seems bland when you taste it, tell yourself that baby has not yet a point of comparison, so he cannot blame you. Moreover, it will be able to discover the authentic flavors of what you prepare it.
DO NOT START DIVERSIFICATION TOO EARLY OR TOO LATE
The ideal age is between 4 months and 6 months and with the prior approval of its pediatrician. If you start diversification too early or too late, it could increase the risk of allergy.
DO NOT SNACK BETWEEN MEALS OR EAT IN FRONT OF TV/TABLET
Nibbling is a very bad habit that can cause obesity. Do not incite him to do so.
Same for taking meals in front of the TV, the tablet … it’s very bad. Meals must be a moment of sharing; moreover, eating in front of a screen makes us forget the quantities absorbed. This practice can also lead to weight problems over the long term.
To conclude, remember that it is necessary to avoid the maximum intake of sugars and fats, as for an adult in sum!
