After adding supplementary food to the baby, one of the most difficult questions for novice mothers is whether they can put salt. Some say you can let it go, some say you can't let it go. I had the same problem a long time ago.
One night, there were many guests in the house, the food was very rich, everyone ate with relish. Suddenly, my mother told me that Lele Baby had eaten a large piece of stewed radish, and had a very sweet taste.
In fact, for the baby to eat salt this issue, my friends are quite concerned about. Before the baby has been supplemented with supplementary food, they are struggling with whether to give the baby salt, the older generation usually think that the baby who does not eat salt will be boring, walking unsteady.
As we all know, salt is an indispensable condiment in our life. However, the baby's stomach is more special, salt is not good to add too early, if we want the baby to grow up healthily, we should pay attention to the following aspects, to achieve scientific diet.
Because milk and other supplements contain the sodium the body needs, in general, the normal baby can eat enough sodium to meet the physiological needs;
4) If a baby over the age of 2 does not resist eating light food and there is no need to follow the adult's taste, continue to make baby food alone.
It is mainly because the sodium ions in salt are metabolized by the kidney, and the baby's kidney function is poor at this time, the glomerular filtration rate and renal blood flow are not as good as that in adults, and the excretion and reabsorption function of renal tubules are not well developed, so eating more salt will inevitably increase the burden of kidney and increase the burden of heart, which will damage the kidney and heart function and affect the normal development of the baby.
Moreover, it is not easy to correct the heavy salt eating habit after growing up, and the heavy salt eating habit is easy to cause hypertension and other diseases. After we wait for baby kidney function is sound, can increase salt intake as appropriate.
Paediatrics expert Choi advised against adding salt to baby food under the age of 1. For a baby after the age of one, as long as the baby can accept salt-free food, do not deliberately add salt. found that the baby's interest in food decreased, gradually a small amount of progressive addition of salt. Light food is good for one's health! Don't add salt to the baby according to the appetite of the adult. The amount of salt should depend on the acceptance of the baby.
In addition, do not give children within the age of 1 to eat salt, before the age of 3 to give children as little as possible to eat salt, do not let the child \"heavy taste \". Children are more suitable for the taste of natural food, and this stage of salt intake control, but also reduce the risk of later hypertension and cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases.
