It should teach children to eat healthy and well in the first year of life, even before they start to walk. If children learn early, the habit of eating a healthy diet lasts up to six years of age, as they explain some studies published in the journal Pediatrics. Let’s talk about Feeding children good habits must begin with weaning.
Studies published in the journal Pediatrics , based on an analysis conducted on nutrition of 1500 children of six years show that the foods eaten during weaning affect the future quality of life of the child. In reaching this conclusion, the researchers compared the eating habits of children of school age with those found by another study that had followed them in their first year of life.
When children already weaning eat few fruits and vegetables in the first year of life, that they may eat too little for 6 years. The best thing is interest in these foods between the tenth and twelfth month of life. It’s very important to teach children lots of fruits and vegetables when they go to God, and do not give up if at first have a negative response. We must insist, said Kelley Scanlon, one of the researchers.
Other studies had shown that preferences for certain foods are developed in childhood, but it was not clear how important the diets followed in the early months of life and it was not clear follow through food choices of early childhood and school-age choices.
From another search can be seen that children who consume a certain amount of sweetened drinks in infancy, are twice as likely to hire they made 6 years. Also, if you give these drinks to children between 10 and 12 months more than 3 times a week, they have double the risk of being obese at age six.
Equally for the impact of breastfeeding, breastfed babies, according to surveys, most easily accept new foods than small fed with milk powder.
