How to make children have more appetite in summer?

Summer is enjoyable for the baby - not only can you have water but also cold drinks. For parents, it is more worrying - this is the season when the baby is most likely to suffer from loss of appetite, diarrhea, and accidents. Poor parents in the world, here, let us support them and help moms and dads to spend a safe and healthy summer.

There are recipes for fighting loss of appetite

Many parents will have headaches for their baby's poor appetite or anorexia. Indeed, this is the scourge of summer heat:

1. In summer, the temperature is high, and the human body dissipates heat through sweating. The blood flows to the body surface, the blood flow in the gastrointestinal tract is relatively reduced, the secretion of digestive juice in the gastrointestinal tract is also reduced, and the appetite naturally decreases.

2. The baby has a large amount of activity, sweating more, drinking a lot of water, diluting the gastric juice, so that the baby's appetite is further reduced.

3. Summer is a season of high zinc deficiency in children. Zinc in the body is excreted with sweat and is continuously lost. Zinc is a component of taste hormones and plays an important role in taste. In the absence of zinc, the oral mucosal cells are incompletely developed, and they tend to fall off and block the small pores of the taste buds. As a result, the taste bud cells are unable to feel food irritations, resulting in decreased sensitivity to taste and decreased appetite.

So how to improve the summer baby's appetite?

First, eat some easily digestible, less greasy foods. Summer is the peak season of fruits and vegetables, such as cucumbers, tomatoes, lettuce, etc. are rich in vitamin c, carotene and inorganic salts and other substances. You can use these vegetables to make cold dishes and add garlic and vinegar to the dishes. They are both cool and delicious, increase appetite and help prevent intestinal infectious diseases.

Second, you can let your baby drink some fresh fruit juice, but do not drink plenty of water or eat plenty of cold drinks before meals. In addition, pay attention to indoor ventilation and cooling, to create a good rest environment for your baby. Through these methods, your baby's appetite in "bitter summer" can be improved.

Zinc supplements in summer are best supplemented with food. The best way is to eat more zinc-rich foods such as animal liver, lean meat, egg yolk, and fish. The highest amount of zinc in food is oyster. Oyster steamed egg is a good zinc supplement recipe. Baby food is not only easy to digest and absorb, but also has the effect of promoting appetite.

Potassium supplement is very important

Summer temperatures are high, the baby sweats more, it is easy to lose water and some nutrients, such as sodium, potassium, zinc, calcium, etc., especially the lack of potassium will make the baby feel bad.

Add water in a timely manner, preferably boiled water. Sweaty baby can add some sugar salt water, you can also drink some mineral water, but you can not use pure water or pure water to replace. In addition carbonated drinks can not drink, otherwise it will increase the loss of calcium.

Eat more fresh fruits and vegetables. Because fresh vegetables and fruits contain more potassium, it is beneficial for the baby to enjoy summer.

The most common fruits containing potassium are: bananas, oranges, strawberries, apricots, litchi, peaches, plums, etc.

Potassium-rich common vegetables are: vegetables, celery, soybeans, mushrooms, potatoes and so on.

Lotus seeds contain more potassium and can be cooked with green beans.

Protein supply don't ignore

Summer baby activity, sleep time is relatively small, consume more, this time more to meet the baby's rapid growth and development needs, in particular, can not be ignored is to add sufficient quality protein.

Protein supplements are best supplemented with tonics. Common high-quality proteins are milk, eggs, soy products, meat, and they also contain more zinc and calcium.

Do not use frying in the cooking method, because too greasy food will increase your baby's gastrointestinal burden and lead to loss of appetite. Therefore, more healthy cooking methods such as steaming, boiling, boiling, and cold should be used.

Replacing cold drinks with fruits

In summer, delicious cold drinks are loved by your baby, but if you eat too much, it will cause irritation to the baby's gastrointestinal tract, resulting in loss of appetite, or even vomiting and diarrhea. Therefore, moms and dads must control the number and frequency of baby's cold drinks and try to eat as little as possible. If babies prefer sweets, they can use fresh fruits instead of cold drinks. In addition, the best time to give your baby a cold drink is in the afternoon, and night is the time when you don't recommend cold drinks.
