Canadian Guidelines Recommend Meats as Baby 모바일상위노출 ?셲 First Solid Food


In a major departure from con 모바일상위노출 ventional advice, new Canadian guidelines say parents should be offering their six-m 모바일상위노출 nth-old infants iron-rich foods like pork, beef, fish, poultry, tofu, beans and eggs two or more times a day on a daily basis.

The recommendations ar 모바일상위노출 e ground breaking. Previously, it was advised that babies start out eating infant cereals, followed by fruits and vegetables, then m 모바일상위노출 eats as they transition to solid foods. But when you look at the science, there is no reason to do that.

Experts from Health Canada, Canadian Paediatric Society, Dietitians of Canada, Breastfeeding Committee for Canada and the Public Health Agency of Canada state the rationale for this change in infant feeding practices is two-fold:

  • Iron is critical for a baby?셲 growth and cognitive, neurological, motor and behaviour development.
  • By about six months, a baby?셲 iron stores start to diminish and those solely fed breast milk will not meet their iron requirements and are in danger of becoming anemic or iron-deficient. Iron deficiency during infancy and childhood may affect proper brain development, which is irreversible.

A recent national survey* revealed 70 p 모바일상위노출 er cent of Canadian mothers are unaware that babies seven to 12 months need 11 mg of iron per day ??that?셲 nearly 40 per cent mor 모바일상위노출 e than is required of a full-grown man!

Nature has provided delicious, iron-rich p 모바일상위노출 ork perfectly compatible with the way humans absorb iron ??very efficiently. Adding meat to a meal also helps our bodies absorb up to four times the amo 모바일상위노출 unt of iron from other foods like green vegetables, bread and cereals. Given the small size of baby?셲 stomach, serving meat at each meal make g 모바일상위노출 ood nutritional sense.

Meats are an anchor in a healthy meal for th 모바일상위노출 e family. Now six-month-old infants can (and should) enjoy meats as the foundation of their meals too.
