The role of protein in baby's growth

 Protein intake comes from dairy products

   In fact, a large part of protein intake can be obtained from dairy products. Babies of different ages have different needs for dairy products:

  * Babies under 1 year old who take dairy products as their staple food can get enough protein through 700-800ml breast milk or formula milk every day.

  *After 1 year old, you can supplement protein intake with dairy products and other foods. For example: 400-500ml dairy products + 100g fish meat (approximately equal to half a large row or two slices of fish meat) + 50-100g soybean products + 50-100g each of vegetables and fruits (approximately equal to 5 small vegetables or a banana ) + 100g of rice (approximately equal to 1/3 bowl of rice).

  The role of protein in the growth of babies

   1. Building a new organization: A baby needs a lot of protein to grow.

   Second, produce antibodies: enhance the body's resistance. Experiments have shown that when changing from a low-protein diet to a high-protein diet, the antibodies produced by the body will double within a week.

   Three, constitute plasma protein: it is easy to cause edema when lacking.

   Fourth, supply heat.

   Several questions about nutritional intake:

  Q: The baby's usual protein and fat intake is not lacking, why is it found to be "nutritional anemia" in the hospital?

  A: It may be due to insufficient iron nutrition in the diet, causing iron deficiency anemia. Iron-rich foods include red meat such as beef, pork, lamb, and animal liver; in addition, fruit intake is also very important, because fruit is rich in vitamin C, which helps the body absorb iron.

   In addition, infant nutritional anemia may also be caused by insufficient intake of fresh vegetables and fruits and lack of folic acid. Due to the lack of folic acid, the red blood cells in the bone marrow cannot develop and mature, and the red blood cells released into the blood have a short survival life, resulting in nutritional megaloblastic anemia.

  Q: My baby eats a lot of fruits every day, but the doctor says that she is malnourished. What is going on?

  A: If the baby eats a lot of fruit every day, or even replaces the meal with fruit, of course he can’t eat anything else when it comes to eating. However, although there are vitamins in fruits, they cannot replace other essential nutrients such as protein and fat. Therefore, babies are of course prone to malnutrition.

  Q: It is said that a baby's partial eclipse can cause autism. Is there such a thing?

  A: Modern medical research shows that the phosphorus, sulfur, and chlorine contained in high-fat, high-protein, and high-sugar foods are acidic in the human body, so they are called "acidic foods."

Children’s blood is usually weakly alkaline. If a large amount of meat, high-sugar and other acidic foods are ingested for a long time, the blood will be acidified, showing an acidic physique, causing disturbances in the body’s environmental balance. Over time, it may affect the children’s psychology. development. However, the cause of childhood autism is still unknown, and it may be caused by multiple factors.
