Before the age of 1, these things cannot be added to the baby's complementary food, parents must remember

When your baby is six months old, solid food is on the agenda. At this time, in order to supplement the baby with enough nutrition, many new mothers have worked hard to make complementary food for the baby in different ways. However, the baby's digestive system is immature, and the choice of food should not be too arbitrary. Some foods cannot appear in the baby's complementary food for the time being. Let's take a look at what are the "blacklists" in complementary foods!

1. Babies under 1 year old cannot eat salt

According to the "Dietary Guidelines for Chinese Residents", babies under 1 year old do not need additional salt (including sea salt, soy sauce for children, etc.). This is because natural food itself is rich in sodium, which can fully meet the sodium needs of children during their growth. Some mothers will think that the baby is unwilling to eat because the food has no taste, so they want to add a little salt. In fact, it's not that the food is tasteless, it's just that the baby hasn't gotten used to the new food. At this time, the baby's sense of taste and smell is like a blank piece of paper. If you rush to add salt to the baby, you are actually imposing the adult's taste on the child. And adding salt to your baby too early will cause too much sodium ion intake and increase the burden on the baby's immature kidneys. In addition, from a long-term perspective, once a baby develops the habit of "heavy taste", he is prone to high blood pressure and cardiovascular diseases in adulthood. In addition to sodium, do not add chicken essence to the same food. The main ingredients of chicken essence are monosodium glutamate, edible salt plus chicken and food additives, so it is not recommended to add it to babies under 1 year old.

2. Honey may cause poisoning in babies

Because honey may contain spores of botulinum toxin, which can lodge in the baby's immature digestive tract Reproduction and growth, which in turn poisons the baby. Although the probability of this happening is very low, once it happens, the risk to the baby is particularly high. Therefore, for safety reasons, babies under 1 year old should not eat honey directly. Including some desserts made with honey, do not eat as little as possible, such as bread, biscuits, etc. with honey.

3. Sugar can easily lead to dental caries and obesity

In addition to honey, do not add sucrose, glucose, etc. to the baby's complementary food. Adding sugar too early will make the baby develop a bad habit of eating sweets, and it will also easily increase the risk of tooth decay and obesity in the baby, which will increase the risk of diabetes, kidney disease, osteoporosis and other diseases in the baby in adulthood.

4. Milk increases the burden on the kidneys and may cause allergies

Babies are mainly breast milk before 6 months old. If breast milk is insufficient, formula milk powder can be used to assist. The milk mentioned here mainly refers to the normal temperature milk sold in supermarkets. Drinking this milk before the age of 1 will increase the burden on the kidneys and affect the absorption of iron. Moreover, the protein molecules in milk are relatively large and difficult to digest, which can cause gastrointestinal discomfort in the baby, and may also cause allergies. Of course, as the baby's gastrointestinal and kidney functions are perfect, the baby after 1 year old can drink milk.

5. Be careful to eat nuts for babies

Nuts have always been considered to be a food that is prone to allergies, and children are prone to choking during eating, which can seriously cause asphyxia. This is because the width of the trachea in children is very narrow, especially the width of the bronchi. In this way, children can easily get stuck if they choke on nuts, so don't give your baby hard whole nuts directly. It is recommended to grind the nuts and put them in rice noodles, porridge or snacks. On the one hand, it can increase the flavor and ensure the nutrition of the baby.

6. Juice is not suitable for babies

Many mothers think that making fresh juice for their babies must be very healthy. In fact, on the one hand, freshly squeezed juice is too sweet, which can damage your baby's teeth. If the baby is dependent on fruit juice, he may refuse to drink boiled water; on the other hand, after the fruit is turned into juice, it will not only damage the nutrition of the fruit itself, but also easily make the child consume too much sugar.

7. Rice soup is not nutritious and occupies stomach

Many elderly people think that rice soup has high nutritional value. In fact, rice soup is not only low in nutritional value, but also low in energy density , Giving your child too much rice soup will occupy the child's limited stomach capacity and affect the child to eat more nutritious things. The above foods should not be given to the baby before the baby is 1 year old. And other foods, such as coffee, tea, wine, chocolate, etc., should not be eaten by the baby, because these things will excite the child's nerves, increase the baby's blood pressure and increase the heart rate. A good complementary food should not only be high in nutrient density, but also easy to eat, easy to digest, soft and not hard, and light in taste. Simply put, just grab these six words "no salt, less sugar, less oil", don't worry about the baby eating badly, it's enough to keep the original taste of the food.
