NATIONAL NUTRITION WEEK 20018
Do's and dont's of child's nutrition:
1. Opt for sitting down on the floor and then feed your child. Avoid using plastic spoons for feeding your child. Making the child sit on the floor and then eat is important for his/her opening of the pelvic hip in the way required. It prevents problems with running, lower back, allergies and knee issues in later stage of life.
2.Feed children with desi cow milk or buffalo milk. And, feed full fat milk to children. Low-fat milk, tetra pack milk, almond milk or skimmed milk must be avoided for child nutrition. Also, avoid adding any kind of flavouring powders in milk you give.
3. Do not feed your child while she/he is watching TV. Parents should inculcate the habit of eating with their children. In case your child refuses to eat without a distraction, or if they refuse to eat simple home-cooked food, give them 5 to 10 minutes and they will end up eating when they feel hungry. Children lose touch with their satiety signals when they eat while watching TV, and they don't know when to stop eating.
4.Bed time of your children is extremely important for child nutrition. Children who do not get adequate sleep are likely to face problems with their brain growth, learning abilities, physical growth, digestion and social interaction
