Juice for the baby of

Fruit and vegetable juice by right is considered as the tasty and useful products traditional for the children`s menu. For this reason many young parents seek to acquaint with them the kid as soon as possible. But whether it is worth hurrying and how it is better to organize introduction of juice to a diet of the baby?

Earlier juice was the first product other than breast milk which was received by the child. But, considering their low nutrition value and high risk of development of allergic reactions, today refused this rule. Also at later introduction of juice (in the second half of the year of life) the best shipping is noted them. It is explained by maturing mucous zheludochno - an intestinal path and its readiness for digestion of juice. But even at introduction of juice after 6 months of life the child can have pains and an abdominal distension, vomiting, violations of a chair. It is connected with existence in juice of organic acids which renders an irritant action on zheludochno - an intestinal path.

is recommended to acquaint the kid with juice after introduction of first courses of a feeding up Now: not earlier than 6 months to the children who are on breastfeeding and not earlier than 4 months - to children on artificial feeding. The difference in terms is explained by distinction in functioning zheludochno - an intestinal path at children depending on a type of feeding. The children who are on natural feeding together with milk of mother receive enzymes and partially split carbohydrates and fats that promotes their easier assimilation. Respectively, maturing of own enzymatic systems and mucous at such children happens later, and readiness to acquire alien food is late.

Why juice is necessary?

Juice is sources of natural vitamins and minerals which are necessary for the growing kid. Natural vitamins are easier acquired by an organism. Juice possesses a liquid consistence and is convenient in use for small children.

Juice happens clarified and to pulp. In pulpy juice there are more food fibers and pectins. Introduction of these products is traditional begin with apple juice. It is a source of vitamin C, iron. Vitamin C is necessary first of all for normal activity of immune system that promotes protection against an infection, strengthens walls of vessels. Also vitamin C contains in pears, citrus juice, but its most high content in blackcurrant juice.

When? Now, according to the recommendation of World Health Organization, the child who is on breastfeeding does not have
need of introduction of any dishes of a feeding up till 6 months (including juice).

the Source of iron are garnet juice and juice of a kiwi. Iron is the main component of hemoglobin which transfers oxygen to all cages of our organism. At its shortcoming anemia and, as a result of it, oxygen starvation of bodies develops.

Peach and apricot juice - sources a beta - karotin which are very useful to eyes promote growth and strengthening of bones, health of skin, a hair, teeth and gums. But the maximum quantity them contains in carrot and pumpkin juice. Pumpkin is also a source of vitamins of group B. All vitamins of group B (B 1 , B 2 , B 3 , B 9 , B 12 ) participate in many exchange processes of our organism. At their shortage pathology of nervous, haematogenic, respiratory systems develops, there can be diseases zheludochno - an intestinal path and skin.

Potassium which is the main microcell of an organism and supports normal work of cardiovascular system contains in apricots and bananas. In bananas there is also a magnesium also necessary for work of heart and nervous system.

Juice not only is sources of vitamins and minerals, but can be used as regulators of motility of intestines. So, juice from plum, a peach, apricots stimulates intestines and causes fluidifying of a chair, thus, they are more preferable to children with locks. Pear and garnet juice, on the contrary, can fix a chair at the child.

Freshly squeezed juice contains much more vitamins, organic acids, pectins, i.e. their useful properties are higher. However from - for the high content of acids they have expressed irritating effect on mucous intestines, i.e. possesses the worst shipping. It can be shown by the increased gas generation, an abdominal distension and pains in it. Therefore they are recommended to part with water - in the ratio not less, than 1:1. However the diluted juice contains already twice less useful substances. It is also necessary to remember that this juice needs to be prepared from products as which you are sure, and the nobility where they were grown up.

Juice from jars of industrial production undergoes testing for quality and is balanced on the content of acids for children till 1 year. They are easier had, cause irritation mucous zheludochno less often - an intestinal path. However from - for processings which they take place this juice loses considerable part of natural vitamins. Once you remember that need of use and that, and other juice at children till 1 year is doubtful.

It and functional immaturity which is expressed in violations of digestion and assimilation of food, and various motor violations leading to vomiting, an abdominal distension and enzymatic frustration at which activity of enzymes (the substances promoting digestion of food) or their development is broken. Introduction to a diet of any new product is a heartrending experience for a gastrointestinal tract of such children. Considering that juice possesses the minimum nutrition value and does not replace feedings, they are recommended to be entered later. Sometimes this moment is postponed until the end of the first year of life of the child. If the child suffers from locks, then the sequence of introduction of juice can change: prunes juice, but not apple will be the first in a diet.
