It's no secret how kids love to eat sweet.How to treat this?
If the child at least once try a slice of cake or chocolate, then it will require a meal again and again.Some parents turn a blind eye and waving, saying, "Nothing!Who as a child did not eat sweets ?! "Meanwhile, the damage from such a huge bias, and do not you forget about it.
There is an opinion - not give children sweets to 3 years, and 3 years after the limit.This is correct, because the premature use of sugar a child leads to such consequences as:
- development of food allergy;
- overweight kid;
- development of diabetes;
- disease with variable symptoms (intolerance to a particular type of sugar);
- lactase deficiency (intolerance to milk sugar);
- sucrose intolerance (due to lack of specific intestinal enzyme);
- galactosemia (galactose and lactose intolerance);
- disorders of the gastrointestinal tract;
Increase the amount of sugar drink dulls the taste for sweets, and the baby is not satisfied with asmaller amount of it.There is a kind of "vicious circle".
Sugar and its variants
Generally sugar - is the common name of low molecular weight carbohydrates - mono- and oligosaccharides.By monosaccharides include glucose and fructose, to oligosaccharides (disaccharides) - sucrose, maltose and lactose.
most cases to sugars include sucrose, consisting of lactose, fructose, but in foods (especially children) can include other types of sugars cane or beet sugar, grape sugar, levulose, or fructose, dextrose (glucose), maltose(glucose polymer) and the syrup and its various types, juice concentrate, honey, lactose (milk sugar).
most harmless sugar lactose is considered.She does not have a destructive effect on teeth and is easily digested.Safe and natural types of sugar consumption.Contained in the tissue of fruit and vegetables.
About the daily requirement in sweet for many years, doctors argue.So.It is believed that the daily intake of sugar for children is:
- 1-1,5 years - 40 g,
- 1,5-6 years - 60 g,
- 7-10 years - 70 g,
- 11-13 years - 85 g,
- 14-17 years - 100 g
But now this view is challenged, and scientists have come to believe that a child under 3 years is not worth in the food to enter the sugar, as daily usersfood already contains sugar (fruit, juice, vegetables, cereals, pastries, bread), as well as goodies kid can serve raisins, dried fruit, honey.healthy and tasty snack for the baby
- fruit juice;
- slices of apple or pear;
- apples, baked in the oven and smeared with honey;
- fruit mixed with yogurt;
- peanut butter;
- rice biscuits;
- meat (liver), pâté;
- berries and fruits;
- dried fruits and nuts, but this kind of treats does not have limits.
traditional view - to express love for the child in terms of the amount of sweets originates, and often the parents who want to isolate a child of the sweet as long as you can hear from others: "How is it - you can notcandy?What are you cruel »
So if you do not want to give her sweet crumbs to 3 years, and then the smaller - the better, please be patient.Follow this rule should be from the beginning.Babies feeding mother's milk, and drink it if you want some water, then sweetening vodichku not.
If you do not drink a vodichku, prepare him legenky kompotik: 1 cup water, 1 apple, 1-2 berries dried apricots, raisins and 5 1 fruit prunes.All these boil for 5-10 minutes - and ready compote.And tasty, and nutritious.You do not seem to have enough sugar?So you're used to, but the crumb does not know the taste of sweet compote.
came time to give your baby yogurt?According to statistics, the five kids happy yogurt drink only one.It was then that caring parents and their child podsazhivayut sugar, sweetening dairy products.There are several options for the output of such a situation.
Buy dairy mixture for kids - it's the type known to all "Snowball".But as a rule, to give the baby milk kitchen kefir, and give parents easier sweetened yogurt.
In this case, try adding yogurt to biscuits - a special, children, or normal, but low in fat and no additives.Only this kefir drink do not get from a bottle (hole clogged quickly).It is better to use a feeding cup or mug.
Start with a proportion of 200 grams of yogurt + pechenyushki whole, then gradually reduce the cookie content in the beverage.Yes, cookies also contain sugar, but not in the quantities in which you add sugar in pure form.
summer cook crumbs yogurt, mixing with fresh fruit and berries.Sugar substitutes in the same mess can be honey or fructose, dried or cooked jam you.Fructose is commercially available, it is sweeter than table sugar.Therefore, where it takes 2 tablespoons of sugar, place 2 teaspoons of fruit concentrate.
Try to keep the child saw fewer sweets in the house, if it do not eat chocolate, candy and so on. Of course, everyone wants to be pampered a little kid.But why do not please some delicious exotic fruit or berries?

The dried fruit is almost no fat and little protein, so the carbohydrates contained in them, children are easily digested stomach.
The dried fruit unsightly to look at, the better.This is due to the fact that many sellers, in order to give the appearance of a good dried fruit, use a variety of methods of processing of fruit with sulfur dioxide, as a result of the fruits retain their color, but nutrients are not replenished, but rather the contrary.At times the brightness of product infused with the help of chemical dyes.It is better to give preference unprepossessing fruit.
Since 1-1.5 years, add dried fruit to baby cereal, fruit puree and a few times a week.The amount of dried fruit can be up to 50-100 g (already washed and soaked) per day, but it is better not to exceed the norm.Indeed, in contrast to the fresh fruits, dried fruits contain more sugar.Candied fruits and berries during cooking scald in sugar syrup, and therefore they lose vitamins and nutrients, while carbohydrates, by contrast, are rich.Because you should limit the amount of these products.
