Why it's Important That Your Child's Diet is Calcium-Rich

Diploma in Paediatrics, MD (Physician)
Pediatrician, Gurgaon

Why it's important that your child's diet is calcium-rich

Calcium is an inevitable part of your child's diet. You cannot afford to skip it if you wish to maintain a healthy lifestyle for your child. It is recommended that children between the ages of 9 and 18 should get approximately 1300 milligrams of calcium every day. Calcium-rich diet is important for your child for a number of reasons.

Why calcium?

  • calcium helps in building strong bones and teeth for your child.
  • it is important in order to ensure proper functioning of your child's muscles and nerves.
  • calcium plays a vital role in the release of such hormones and enzymes in your child's body that convert the food he eats into energy.
  • it is also helpful in causing the blood to clot whenever your child gets bruised.
  • since your child is continuously growing, a calcium-rich diet ensures an adequate supply of resources that help him to develop new bones that are healthy and strong.
  • a calcium-rich diet is also essential as far as other bodily functions like muscle contraction, blood vessel constriction and relaxation are concerned.

What does lack of a calcium do to your child's body?

  • lack of calcium can cause bone diseases like osteoporosis in your girl child, thus exposing her to a greater risk of weakened bones and possibility of fractures.
  • if your child is a young kid and his diet lacks calcium or vitamin d, which absorbs calcium, he is exposed to the threats of the bone-softening disease called rickets. It can cause in him bowing of the legs, muscle pain and poor growth.
  • bones are living tissues that change constantly, old bones keep getting replaced by newer ones and a calcium-rich diet aids this procedure. Therefore without an adequate supply of calcium, this process would borrow minerals from existing bones, thus weakening them and exposing them to increased risks of fracture.
  • lack of calcium also increases risks of cardiovascular diseases, damaged gums, high blood pressure, ovarian and breast cancer and several other infirmities in your child in his later years.

Oatmeals are for reduction of body fat but not at the cost of lactation or child feed. You must take healthy and balanced diet.

Your description is incomplete which lack in range of temp and associated symptoms with fever. Fever is not disease but it is a symptom of disease. You may give one dose of paracetamol (125 mg) for the time being for fever and consult pediatrician.

Can a nephrotic syndrome child take salt in food? Is it harmful for him? How can nephrotic syndrome be cured?

MD - Paediatrics, MBBS
Pediatrician, Mumbai
Hello. A child with nephrotic syndrome should not be given extra salt in diet other than that is added in gould during preparation. That means he should curtail intake of pickles, papad. Once a child has recovered from swelling, normal diet can be resumed. Nephrotic syndrome can be cured by use of steroids under pediatricians guidance.

Hi. One of the girl parent were suffering from HIV disease. And they are no more now. Will that be spread to their children any time in their life? Will it affect the future generation?

If parents have died of aids there are high chances of passing on hiv infection to kids. If tridot blood test done for kids at 6 months of age, will give status of infection. As tests done early in life may give false positive results. Regarding passing on to next generation, it's very difficult to have these positive kids grow up get married and have kids. If kids are non infective with hiv infection then also chance of passing on to next gereartion is zero.

Are there any long-term effects associated with taking ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder) medications? If so, what are they and what medications are implicated?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Nothing major, in terms of side effects or increased health risks, has been found for taking medications to treat attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADD/ADHD There are no long-term studies assessing these meds in people who have been diagnosed with ADD/ADHD. Almost all of the data on stimulants comes from patients who have been diagnosed with narcolepsy -- a genetically based sleep disorder that causes excessive sleepiness and frequent daytime sleep attacks. Narcoleptics take mild stimulants daily to treat their condition, often for decades. There have been no reported problems.Anyone who is concerned about medication safety should remember the risks of non-treatment. Untreated ADD/ADHD adversely affects a person's life in many ways. Those with ADD/ADHD who don’t take medication have a significant increase in auto accidents, drug abuse, unplanned pregnancy, and job loss.They also are more likely to separate and/or divorce compared with those who take medication.

I removed my sons's one tooth by dentist from root. He is 12 yrs old. What I need to do for his new teeth grow.

Post Graduate Certificate In Endodontics (P.G.C.E), BDS
Dentist,
Dear ! at 12 years of age one have mixed dentition (means both type of teeth are present in mouth milk teeth as well as permanent teeth) so, future treatment will be decided on" which tooth has been extracted milk tooth or permanent one. If: 1) milk tooth is extracted, so permanent tooth will erupt soon as replacement, that can be confirmed by dentist after examining an x-ray to see the location of upcoming tooth. 2) if permanent tooth has been removed then no replacement tooth will erupt in empty space, so, you must show your son to a dentist, who can clarify your doubts after seeing the case. Regards!

My son  is 15 months old He is suffering in Krabbe disease, is this disease is curable what we do Pls. Suggest me.
Dear parent Although there is no cure for Krabbe disease is known, bone marrow transplantation has been shown to benefit cases early in the course of the disease. Generally, treatment for the disorder is symptomatic and supportive. Physical therapy may help maintain or increase muscle tone and circulation. Cord blood transplants have been successful in stopping the disease as long as they are given before overt symptoms appear. All the best.

If taking milk more than decrease its amount and add solid food items. The consistency of the food shud be a little thick and add some extra ghee/oil in the infant's food.
