Dairy basis for favourite porridge

Mother`s lullaby, first toy and first squash... The light and cozy world of the childhood cannot be presented without plateau of warm porridge. This tradition of food originates in depth of centuries: so still our great-great-grandmothers fed children...

Today anybody has

no doubts that breast milk - the best food of the kid on the first year of life. Milk of mother differs in optimum composition of the mineral substances necessary for the normal growth and development of the child. Salts of calcium and phosphorus are in a ratio, ideal for the baby, 2:1 (in cow - 1:1). On the content of iron, copper, zinc and other minerals necessary for normal development of the child, breast milk is much richer cow, and degree of comprehensibility is higher than them. Mother`s milk is created by the nature for this baby and wonderfully meets all his requirements, providing life and health of the kid, protecting it from many illnesses.

But the child grows, and there comes time of introduction of a feeding up. Now pediatricians and nutritionists recommend to the first to enter into a diet of the baby vegetable purees, and then, approximately in a month - porridge. But what has to be this the first in life of the baby porridge?

the First porridge of the kid has to be, strangely enough it sounds, without milk and gluten. Gluten is the vegetable protein which is a part of covers of such cereals as wheat, rye, oats, barley. It quite difficult is digested, can cause violations in work zheludochno - an intestinal path of the kid. The porridges which are not containing gluten it is rice, buckwheat, corn. Them still call bezglyutenovy or low allergy.

So, we dealt with gluten. But why porridge have to be without milk? Milk - the main product in life of the kid. Yes, main. But this milk - mother`s. The organism of the kid approximately to the 3rd summer age is not adapted for digestion of cow`s or any other milk. It seems, all remember it and know, but when the speech comes about porridge, forget these common truths. And in vain. Even many producers do not use the adapted mixes by production of porridges though by pediatricians it is proved that use in food of the baby of cow`s milk leads to development of an allergy, to dehydration of an organism, iron deficiency anemia and even the risk of diabetes increases in more advanced age.“ Superfluous“ the proteins and mineral salts which are a part of cow`s milk force still insufficiently developed bodies of the baby to work with an overload.

So on what milk needs to cook for

porridge for kids?

At first - on breast milk. The mother`s milk will help a vulnerable children`s tummy to digest new food, to acquire all nutrients. If mother does not have milk, it is necessary to use substitutes of breast milk. But it is even better to use the porridges of industrial production which are specially created for children. These porridges share on nonmilk and dairy, mono - and the multicomponent, bezglyutenovy and gluten, incorporating various additives, lechebno - preventive.

It is necessary to choose the porridges created on the basis of full or partial substitute of breast milk (the adapted dairy mix).

Adaptation of dairy mix consists in partial replacement of milk fats on vegetable which are a valuable source of vitamin E and irreplaceable fatty acids of which it is not enough in cow`s milk.
