solid food for baby

Solid food for baby
heheheh..Normally aku tak tulis bab mcm ni kat sini tapi memandangkan apa yang bakal aku tulis ni akan menyimpang dari memberi informasi kepada meluahkan rasa hati....

Aku kurang bersetuju dengan ibu-ibu yang beria-ia nak bagi babay mereka yang baru cecah 6 bulan makan. Ini kes yang anak 6 bulan ada juga yang anak baru 4 bula dah beria- ia nak suapkan solid food.
Baiklah mari kita cari alasan sikit kenapa kita nak kenalkan solid food kepada anak kita yang masih bayi itu...
Ini aku copy paste ya..
The purpose of introducing solids such as cereal is to introduce spoon feeding. Sooner or later all humans eat food. We donft live on milk for our whole lives, so we have to introduce food. But when we first introduce food, there isnft any food or amount of food that the baby must get to be nourished. Remember, all the nutrients in his milk are still sufficient for his growth

Sebelum tu ada juga yang bagi anak makan cereal menggunakan botol...

Why shouldn't cereal be put in your babyfs bottle?

* It is an old wivesf tale that putting cereal in the bottle will help your baby sleep better at night. Babies should not go more than 4-6 hours without being fed because their stomachs are so small.

* Around 4-6 months, your baby will be ready to eat cereal from a spoon. This is a very important learning step for your baby. Putting cereal in a bottle may prevent your baby from learning this new skill.

* Cereal in the bottle can increase the risk of choking because you have to increase the size of the hole in the nipple to allow the cereal through. If too much comes through the nipple, your baby could choke.

* Putting cereal in the bottle may cause you to overfeed your baby.

Tujuan utama kita kenalkan bayi kita solid food adalah untuk memberitahu dia yang kita manusia hidup bukannya akan terus menerus haya tahu menghisap dan menelan susu sahaja. Kita suatu hari nanti perlu makan dengan cara mengangakan mulut, mengunyah, dan menelan.
Bayi bawah 2 tahun sebenarnya mendapat khasiat secukupnya dari susu ibu bagi bayi yang disusukan oleh ibunya dan dari susu formula bagi bayi yang minum susu formula.
Maka ibu-ibu tidaklah perlu tergesa-gesa memaksa anak kecik anda makan selagi mereka tidak menunjukkan 'minat' untuk makan.
Lagi pun bayi masih kecil, perut dan ususnya mungkin belum 'ready' untuk 'kerja-kerja berat'; mencerna makanan....

Aku rasa sedih sangat apabila ada ibu yang bersungguh-sungguh memaksa anak yang baru 6 bulan agar makan solid food. Kesian tau...
Kalau dia tak nak janganlah paksa lagi, sampai masanya dia akan makan juga..Lagi satu jangan sekali-kali ajar naka makan makanan ringan such as asam ka..keropok cap ayam ka...

Makanan bayi tidak perlu ditambahkan garam atau gula.Biar tawar. Ada pula yang bagi anak makan letak garam 'sebakul'. Garam amat tak sesuai untuk bayi.

Can I put salt in my baby's food?

You should not add salt to your baby's food in the first year as this may damage her kidneys. In the first six months of life your baby needs less than 1g of salt per day, which she will usually obtain from breastmilk or formula milk. Between seven and 12 months this increases slightly to around 1g. Toddlers aged one to three years need less than 2g (this is the equivalent of 0.8g sodium per day).

To stay within these recommendations you should aim to:

. limit salty foods in your baby's diet

. don't add salt during cooking

. Limit processed foods, such as ready meals, pies, biscuits, crackers, soups, gravies, sauces, pizza, tinned vegetables, cheese, bacon and crisps, which are all very high in salt, and offer low-salt alternatives.

Foods made specifically for babies, such as jar foods and infant cereals, have a low salt content, as salt is not added during processing. These should not be confused with foods aimed at older children. These can be highly processed and have a high salt content and are therefore not suitable for your baby.

If you do choose to offer your baby or toddler high-salt foods, it is recommended that you only offer small amounts occasionally.

Salt is usually labelled as sodium on food labels: 1g of sodium is equivalent to 2.55g of salt. Read food labels carefully and aim to choose those foods with a sodium content of no more than 0.1g of sodium per 100g.

Suitable low-salt foods for your baby include fruit, vegetables and salad, plain meat, poultry and fish, eggs, pulses and milk. Whether they are fresh, tinned or frozen shouldn't make a difference as long as they have no added salt (tinned vegetables often have salt added so be especially careful to check these). Rice and dried pastas are also low in salt provided they have had no salt added during cooking. Make a habit of reading food labels, and you will soon get to know which are the most suitable foods to buy.

Babies and children under 11 years old should have less salt than adults, because they are smaller.

How much salt should babies have?
Babies need only a very small amount of salt - less than 1g a day up to 12 months. Their kidneys can't cope with larger amounts of salt.

Babies who are breastfed will get the right amount of salt through breast milk. Infant formula contains a similar amount.

Remember not to add salt to food you give to your baby. And be careful not to give him/her processed foods that aren't made specifically for babies, such as breakfast cereals and pasta sauces, because these can be high in salt.

How much salt should children have?
The daily recommended maximum for children depends on their age:

* 1 to 3 years - 2 g salt a day (0.8g sodium)
* 4 to 6 years - 3g salt a day (1.2g sodium)
* 7 to 10 years - 5g salt a day (2g sodium)
* 11 and over - 6g salt a day (2.5g sodium)

These are the recommended maximums for children. It is better for them to have less.

If you're buying processed foods, even those aimed at children, remember to check the information given on the labels so you can choose those with less salt.

Remember there is no need to add salt to your childfs food.

If children have too much salt, this could affect their health in the future. And it could also give them a taste for salty food, which means theyfre more likely to continue eating too much salt when they grow up.

Aku harap kita sama-sama pertimbangkan demi kebaikan anak masing-masing.
