Nutrition For Preschoolers

BSc - Food Science & Nutrition, PGD in Sports Nutrition and Dietitics , Diabetes Educator, Translational Nutrigenomics

Nutrition For Preschoolers

Preschoolers are active, bubbly, cute, spirited and adorable children (below 5 years). There are a lot of growth activities taking place inside their cells. They need a lot of nutrition to support such activities. Nevertheless, most of these preschoolers are pretty opinionated about eating. Some of them may even have grown a food faddism. At times, they may not eat anything at all. But one needs to add nutrition to their palate. How can a person do that? Let us see if this works.

- Eating with Family

These kids are very eager to eat what others are eating. They are always curious to taste such food. This is also an opportunity to offer the right balance of nutrition to the child. Since family meals usually feature an assortment of meals in moderate quantities, the child can get a bit of everything from different family members. This can fulfill its need for nutrition to some extent. Offer some portions of lean meat, eggs, poultry, whole grains, legumes etc. along with at least two servings of dairy products on a regular basis. Children may start loving it over time.

- Don’t Allow Distractions During Meal Time

Distractions like TV, smartphone etc. during meal time may distract a person from the family gathering. If all the members of the family sit together, have a meal, converse over the meal and there is no distraction, it may encourage the child to taste different food items and have good nutrition. It also fosters conversational skill. It has a demonstrative effect on children. It learns that mealtime is reserved solely for savoring nutritious food and nurturing relations through cordial conversations. At the same time people need not be strict about eating manners or neatness since that may put off the child.

- Offer a Variety of Food

A palate made of different food items may tickle the taste buds of the child better and grow a liking for food. Parents can offer sandwiches, crackers made of whole grain, vegetables, scrambled or hard-boiled eggs etc. Among dairy products one can offer milk or milk with cereals, yogurt etc. Fruit smoothies or low-fat popcorn is also a great idea.

Control Picky Eating

Most preschoolers are picky eaters. They may favor only a few types of food like crackers or chocolates. This may mar the attempts to introduce variety in the palate. It is difficult to stop children from eating their favorite food, but one can definitely control their demand for their favorite food. This is essential since the same type of food cannot help with wholesome nutrition. Even parents are tempted to prepare only those items that the child prefers, resisting temptation. One needs to continue to offer a variety of food items. Initially, the child may resist, but eventually it may become bored of regular food and may start picking at other items.

It is difficult to introduce new food to preschoolers, but with some effort and consistency, the child may at least start picking at different food items. This can help with required nutrition.

Keto Diet And Its Demerits

BSc - Food Science & Nutrition, PGD in Sports Nutrition and Dietitics , Diabetes Educator, Translational Nutrigenomics
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Mumbai
Keto Diet And Its Demerits

Ketogenic diet is a low carb-low protein-high fat food regime. It is also known as a keto diet. There are many positive fallouts of following a keto diet. Since the amount of carbohydrate is very low in this type of diet, the liver is not able to produce glucose to fuel the body parts.

In such a condition, the liver undergoes a process known as ketosis and produces ketones which supply energy to different body parts. The process of ketosis makes use of fat. Thus, ketosis can burn up a very high amount of fat and bring down obesity. The ability of a keto diet to bring down fat is well recognized.

However, there are some demerits of such diet too. One needs to recognize the demerits of such a diet before jumping to a conclusion.

- There Is a Risk of Malnutrition

An adult need at least 250 to 300 grams of carbohydrate per day. The body needs this amount of carbs to produce glucose and supply that to various tissues of the body. If a person follows the keto diet, the carb intake gets severely restricted. Carbohydrates in all forms such as whole grains, potatoes etc. can be reduced to an amount that is equivalent to just two pieces of bread a day. This can result in malnutrition.

- There Is a Risk of High Cholesterol

If the person is genetically predisposed to getting high blood cholesterol, the keto diet will only add to it. So, for people with a genetic inclination for high cholesterol, keto diets can be deadly.

- Adaptation Period Is Difficult

Since keto diet is vastly different from a normal diet, one needs to go through the adaptation process before starting on such a diet. This period is fraught with difficulties. People may have flu like symptoms such as nausea, headache, fatigue etc. as he/she advances with the plan of having only a keto diet. People may also suffer from a lack of minerals, which is a result of carbohydrate restrictions. All these symptoms make it a difficult time to get through.

- Face Gastrointestinal Issues

As part of adopting a keto diet one needs to increase fat intake dramatically while cutting down carb intake drastically. This may precipitate gastrointestinal issues like diarrhea, constipation etc. This can go on until the body gets adapted to a new kind of diet. All gastrointestinal organs like gallbladder, liver, pancreas, etc. need to adapt to the diet. These organs need some time to do that. In the meantime, a person may suffer from nausea and other difficulties.

- Going to Social Gatherings May Become Difficult

The keto diet puts so much restriction on foods that one can eat hardly anything at social gatherings like in parties. It can really get vexatious to have friends and relatives answer about the self-imposed dietary restrictions.
