Symptoms for acid reflux and 6 home remedies for kids

It is a matter of worry for a new mom, if the baby spits up milk. Acid reflux in babies is absolutely normal and every baby has this during early months. If the baby is taking his/her feed properly, gaining weight, reaching all the required growth and development milestones, nothing to worry about. In such conditions acid reflux is not a matter of concern at all. Generally babies stop having reflux around 1 year of age. If a child continues to have acid reflux for long, he/she may need to check it with a pediatrician.

We have often experienced a burning sensation in chest after eating something very spicy. Like that only, infants also suffer from the same condition but the reason may not be the same as that of adults. Their are some common symptoms for acid reflux that can be seen in babies and kids. Lets first understand what exactly acid reflux is ?

What is GERD?

GERD is Gastroesophageal reflux disease which causes upward movement of stomach content. It includes acid into the esophagus (the muscular tube that connects the mouth and stomach) or sometimes into or out of the mouth. Poor coordination with the gastrointestinal tract is the main cause of reflex in babies. Infants with GERD are otherwise healthy, but some may develop problems that affect their nerves, brain or muscles.

According to the National Digestive Diseases Information Clearing house, A child’s immature digestive system is responsible for it and most infants come out of this condition as they complete one year of age. 5% of older children are at risk of having GERD, if he/she experienced it as a baby. Causes of GERD in older children are the same as seen in adults. Some factors that are responsible for having GERD in kids are overeating, spicy fried junk foods, carbonation, obesity or sometimes any specific medication. It can also be hereditary.

What are the symptoms for acid reflux?
  • Frequent vomiting,
  • Persistent cough or wheezing
  • Heartburn
  • Difficulty in eating, refusing to eat, not gaining weight
  • Colicky behavior, cry and fussiness, abdominal pain (while feeding or immediate after)
  • Sour taste in mouth in morning (stomach acid in throat)
  • Re- swallowing
  • Hiccups
  • Frequent ear infection
Tips to ease acid reflux in babies and kids
  • Elevate the head of the baby crib or child’s bed
  • Hold the baby upright for 30 minutes after feeding. For kids keep them upright for two hours after eating
  • Burp your baby after feed
  • Make the baby or kid sleep on left side
  • Feed smaller quantities of breast milk to the baby, more frequently. Same like this serve small meals to kids throughout the day in spite of three larger meal
  • Make sure that child is not overeating
  • Limited high fat, oily and spicy junk, carbonation and caffeine
  • Avoid tight waist clothing
  • Involving your child is some regular exercises.
Foods to avoid

Brussel sprouts, Broccoli, corn, cucumber, cabbage, cauliflower, garlic and onions are some foods that cause gas and can worsen reflux. Some more foods that can trigger reflex are whole milk, sausage, bacon and pineapple. You have to pay attention to your kid’s diet and the foods he/she eats to observe the cause of reflux. There can be any other food that may trigger reflex in a child.

Foods that can help in acid reflux
Fiber rich foods

Overeating is one of the main causes of acid reflux. Fiber rich foods make you feel full and reduce the chances of overeating. Oatmeal, brown rice, root vegetables like sweet potatoes, carrots, and beets, are some foods that are high in fiber and can help to control reflex.

Alkaline foods

Foods that have low pH are more likely to cause reflux. Alkaline foods have high pH and help to offset strong stomach acid. Bananas, apples, melon, fennel, nuts are some foods that can help to fix acid reflux.

Water base foods

Foods that contain lots of water are the right choice to treat acid reflux. Water easily gets diluted, weakens stomach acid and prevents reflex. Cucumber, water melon, broth based soup can help in acid reflux.

Home remedies
Ginger

Ginger is alkaline in nature. It has some great medicinal properties that makes it one of the best digestive aids. Its anti- inflammatory properties help to ease irritation in the digestive tract. Ginger juice mixed with honey can help to fix acid reflux in kids. Sipping ginger tea can be a good option for adults to ease heartburn.

Apple Cider Vinegar of stomach (APC)

Small amount of APC (1 tbsp) diluted with warm water can relieve acid reflux. It is a popular remedy for acid reflux. It helps to balance the stomach acid and maintain stomach pH.

Aloe Vera Juice

A 2015 study found that aloe vera juice is effective in reducing symptoms of acid reflux. It acts as an anti- inflammatory agent and soothes the stomach by reducing acid production.

Coconut water

Coconut water helps to fix acid reflux as it has electrolytes (potassium) that promotes better pH balance in body. It has cleansing properties that can help to flush out toxins from body and also helps with regular bowel movements.

cold low fat milk

Low fat milk is another way to control reflux. It absorbs acid formation in the stomach. Having a plain glass of cold milk without sugar or any additives can stop acid reflux. Cow milk should be avoided as it is difficult to digest it. Plant based milk like almond milk is alkaline in nature. It can help to neutralize stomach acid and relieve acid reflux. Soy milk is also a good choice as it contains low fat.

Buttermilk and curd

Natural bacteria in buttermilk and curd do not allow acid formation and can help to prevent reflux. They maintain gut health and keep the digestive system healthy. having curd or buttermilk after meal is an excellent way to avoid the chances of having acid reflux.

8 healthy and creamy recipe of smoothies and milkshakes

Are you worried that your children are not getting enough nutrients every day? Smoothies and milkshakes are a tasty and nutritious solution! They are simple, quick, delicious and ideal for breakfast, snacking, or a quick lunch on the run! These 8 recipe of smoothies and milkshakes can help your child consume more fruits, veggies, and add nutrients into their tiny belly.

Smoothies vs milkshakes: What’s the difference?

Almost everyone enjoys smoothies and milkshakes. These two delicious treats are frequently confused. However, they are extremely different in terms of preparation as well as consistency. Milkshakes are dairy-based drinks that are typically made with fruits, ice cream, and flavouring syrups. Smoothies, on the other hand, are often made with fruits and other ingredients such as milk, yogurt, or seeds. Milkshakes cannot be used as a meal, but smoothies may be consumed as a meal replacement because of their high mineral and vitamin content. (2 ways to add nutrition to your kid’s food while travelling)

Tips for making healthy recipe of smoothies and milkshakes at home

Kids may be picky when it comes to eating. But, who can say no to smoothie or milkshake? This miraculous beverage is the answer to ensuring that your child receives all of the necessary nutrients. Here are some ideas for making the recipe of smoothies and milkshakes healthier and more flavorful.

  1. Make sure to include all of your children’s favourite ingredients, such as chocolate or ice cream, when introducing smoothies and milkshakes. A few fruits and nuts can be sneaked in.
  2. Instead of adding sweeteners like sugar, allow the combination of fruits to be the natural sweeteners like a ripe banana, which is quite sweet. (Healthy alternatives of sugar for kids)
  3. Seasonal fruits, such as mangoes, watermelons, and strawberries, should be included because they are not available all year.
  4. Try adding a new ingredient to your smoothies or milkshake every time. It gives the beverage a fresh flavour.
  5. Here’s what you can do if your youngster refuses to eat vegetables. Spinach and broccoli, for example, have a moderate flavour. Strawberries, bananas, and oranges are examples of sweet and tart fruits that can be added. They will never suspect there are veggies in there.

Smoothies:

Smoothies are finely blended juices prepared from fresh vegetables, fruits, and dairy products such as milk or yogurt. They can also be made entirely of fruit or vegetables, or a combination of the two, and without the use of dairy ingredients. It’s called a smoothie because of its smooth, creamy texture and consistency, which appeal to kids. They are also high in carbohydrates and low in fat since they are created from real fruits and vegetables.

10 best proven home remedies for fever in kids

With every season change, parent’s biggest concern is their kid’s health and how to protect them from fever, cold and cough. Fever is common in children of all age group, no matter how careful you are. Young children are prone to falling ill because their immune systems are not strong enough to fight  toxic air and seasonal allergies.

Fever itself is usually not harmful, in fact it helps the body’s immune system fight off infection. Fever is a defense against infection, it raises the temperature of the body to kill the germs. By increasing the body’s temperature, a fever makes it harder for the bacteria and viruses to survive in the body and cause infection.

What considered as fever:

Many parents complain that their baby’s head is warm most of the time and their feet and palm are hot. Do they have a fever?

Children are considered to have a fever if they have a body temperature of 38.5°C (101.3°F) or more, and babies less than three months old are already considered to have a fever at a body temperature of 38.0°C (100.4°F) or more. Use a reliable digital thermometer to confirm a fever.

Causes of fever in kids

When the child has fever, the doctors are more concerned about what is causing the fever, and not what the child’s temperature is. Fevers can be caused by a few things, including

  • Infection:

Most of the fever is caused by infection or other illness for instance, a common cold, middle ear infection, urinary tract infection (UTI) or gastroenteritis. Fever helps the body to fight this infection by raising body temperature to kill the germs.

  • Vaccination:

Generally after vaccination kids get a slight increase in their body temperature. Child’s immune system is developing antibodies to fight the germs that the vaccine aims to protect them from.

  • Dehydration:

Dehydration caused by severe vomiting or diarrhea or they haven’t had enough fluid and their body is dehydrated. This also causes fever in some cases.

  • Sunburn /sunstroke:

Sunburn, sunstroke or heat stroke may also causes fever in some cases

  • Food allergies or intolerance:

Food allergies or intolerance like lactose intolerance and gluten intolerance may also cause fever in some cases.

Symptoms of fever and when to see a doctor

Generally you can tell that a child has a fever just by looking at them. Typical signs include a red face, tired-looking or glazed eyes and otherwise pale skin. A hot forehead or neck can also be a sign of fever. Some children lose their appetite or cry a lot.

You should consult a doctor if child has following symptoms:

  • Their temperature is above 39°C (102.2°F) or a baby under three months old has a temperature above 38°C (100.4°F)
  • The fever last longer than three days
  • Vomiting and refuses to eat or drink anything
  • Have diarrhea or pain in their belly (home remedies for diarrhea in kids)
  • They have skin rash
  • Stiff neck, are unresponsive, restless or confused
  • More sleepy than usual
  • Problems with breathing
  • They have a febrile seizure (fit)
  • Seem be getting more unwell

Seeing your baby in fever is a difficult thing and you do everything to give them comfort during fever. Taking proper care at home can help your baby to recover fast and regain their energy. Below are some home remedies and foods that can help your baby with fever.

Home remedies and foods for fever that can help:
1. Plenty of fluids:

Offer plenty of fluids to keep them hydrated, because fever can make them sweat excessively and cause dehydration in kids. You can offer your child water or oral rehydration solution. Give a small amount of fluid at a time but multiple times in a day. Apart from this you can also offer hot homemade soups, which are full of essential vitamins and minerals and are easy to digest. Avoid drinks with caffeine, including colas and tea, because they can make dehydration worse by increasing urination.

2. Apple cider vinegar bath:

This is one of the most effective remedies to fight fever. ACV has a lot of disinfectant, antimicrobial, antioxidant properties. In lukewarm water add a cup of apple cider vinegar and give your baby a gentle bath or sponge bath. This will immediately bring down the body temperature and give your baby relief from fever. You can also add a few drops of ACV to a warm compress pack and lay it over your baby’s forehead. this is one of the most effective home remedies of fever.

3. Mustard oil and garlic massage:

Heat mustard oil and roast garlic and carom seeds in it. Once cool, apply this oil on the baby’s head, palm, feet base, chest and back. Leave it applied and let the child sleep. It will help settle the body temperature. Also, any body ache the child has will be resolved. Mustard oil is a very effective cough and cold home remedy. ( how massage is important for kids?)

10 amazing health benefits to include honey in kids diet

Benefits to honey

Honey is a delicious and healthy natural ingredient that everyone knows about. It is one of nature’s most wonderful gifts, and it can benefit a child’s health in a number of ways. It is a natural sweetener, thus it is preferable to refined sugar. Most parents have switched from refined sugar to honey and jaggery as alternatives. It has a good nutritional value, as well as a high amount of phytochemicals and flavonoids. It has long been utilised in Ayurvedic medicine for a variety of purposes.

When can I give honey to the baby?

This is one of the most frequently asked questions by parents to their paediatricians. Honey has excellent therapeutic properties that can really help us, however, it is not recommended for newborns under the age of one year. It is, of course, natural and beneficial, but your baby is not yet ready for it. This is to prevent infant botulism, a disease that can be caused in children under the age of one year consuming honey.
Clostridium botulinum, a spore-forming bacteria found in honey, can proliferate in the intestine. Because newborns have an immature digestive system that cannot fight off clostridium spores, the bacteria releases toxins that might irritate the little one’s gut. However, is safe for children over the age of one since their digestive systems are mature enough to eliminate bacteria from the body.

Honey nutritional value:

It provides numerous health benefits as well as a high nutritional value. It also has trace levels of vitamins and minerals.

Health benefits of honey for kids

Some of the amazing health benefits to include honey in a kid’s diet for growth and development are: 

1. Serves as an excellent nutrient storehouse

Honey’s nutritive value is remarkable, as it contains the majority of vital nutrients. Because children are fussy eaters, they often skip out on many of these nutrients, which honey might help to fill. Honey is high in calcium, magnesium, manganese, potassium, phosphorous, zinc, niacin, and riboflavin, all of which aid in the prevention of nutritional deficiencies. (7 health foods for kid’s daily nutrition)

2. Helps in digestion

Honey is an excellent food for boosting digestion in children and treating digestive problems. It is a good prebiotic that aids in the maintenance of healthy gut flora. It also aids in the treatment of constipation and speeds up the process of digestion. In addition to preventing stomach ulcers, honey can help with indigestion, bloating, and flatulence.

3. Treats sore throat/ cough

One of the most common honey benefits for health is – its cure for sore throat /cough. It has been used in Ayurveda and other natural therapies to treat a sore throat in various forms. Honey is antimicrobial in nature and can help soothe a dry, sore throat. It coats the throat and helps sick children sleep easier, especially if they have a nighttime cough. (7 foods to boost immunity in kids)

4. Relieves constipation and diarrhea

Honey can aid with constipation and improve digestive function, but it can also be used as a home treatment for diarrhea. Honey has been shown in studies to improve the recovery process by delaying bowel movements. It’s also a more appealing alternative for kids. (Foods rich in fibre to treat constipation)

5. Relieves gastric reflux

Honey can be used to relieve acid reflux symptoms in children. Honey helps to treat this problem by lining the oesophagus and stomach wall. This limits the upward flow of food and stomach fluid, providing relaxation.

6. Helps in healing 

Honey is well-known for its healing properties. It is used to treat lesions, bug bites, burns, boils, and sores due to its antibacterial and wound-healing characteristics. In kids, a mixture of honey, and olive oil may aid in the treatment of damaged skin and disorders such as psoriasis or atopic dermatitis.

7. Heals mouth ulcers

Mouth ulcers can be extremely painful, especially in children. Applying little honey mixed with turmeric on the mouth ulcer helps in healing faster. 

8. Heals toothaches

When you have a bad toothache, honey is an excellent pain reliever. Honey, combined with a pinch of cinnamon, is an effective toothache remedy. Make a paste with one teaspoon of cinnamon and 2-3 teaspoons of honey and apply it immediately to the painful teeth. (Home remedies for tooth decay)

9. Alleviates muscle pain

Honey can aid kids with muscle pain and even growing pains. Drinking a glass of warm water with a teaspoon of honey will help greatly.

10. Treats asthma

Honey can aid children with asthma, especially if they experience symptoms in the middle of the night. It has the ability to relieve congestion and allows for easier breathing.

Honey use for colds and coughs in kids:

It has antibacterial, antiviral, and antifungal properties, which is why it is used as a natural cold and cough relief. Giving pasteurized honey before sleep provides some relief from cough and cold symptoms in children over the age of one year. (Home remedies and foods for cough and cold )

Honey is used in various ways, especially during sickness. Adding honey to warm water with a pinch of tulsi has proven to be effective, and it is also the most usual method of use. This combination will help the child’s throat feel better, boosts immunity while also increasing his or her metabolism. 

How much honey can my child consume?

Avoid giving honey to children below one year of age. For, children with the age of 

  • 1- 2 years: 2 tsp honey
  • 3- 6 years: 2 ½ tsp honey
  • Above 6 years : 3 tsp honey

Ways to include honey in your child’s diet :

Honey should be progressively introduced into a child’s diet. This will allow you to check for any potential allergic reactions. However, you can add honey to milk, spread it on bread, drizzle on pancakes and can use it as an alternative to refined sugar in baked goods. 

Follow these precautions while giving honey to your child

Here are few things you can keep in mind while giving honey to your child. 

  • Honey should not be given to children in excess. It is high in calories and contains free sugars like fructose, which can lead to unwanted weight gain, dental caries, and gastric issues. 
  • Check the manufacturing date and ingredients listed on the label.
  • Do not leave it open without a lid, as it may get contaminated by insects and dust.
  • Store the honey bottle in a cool place.
  • Honey can sometimes lead to breathing difficulty in children caused due to allergic reactions. So, if you identify any such problem, it is better to reach out to your pediatrician immediately.

Raw honey or processed honey: which is better?

Raw honey has nutrients in its natural state, but it also includes natural poisons which can induce honey poisoning showing symptoms such as low blood pressure, nausea, and vomiting. When honey is processed, the toxins are diluted and may not have a negative impact on the body. Honey that has been processed is also devoid of pollen grains and dust particles. This implies that processed honey has fewer hazards than raw honey, but raw honey has a higher nutritional value than processed honey.

Honey contains nutrients such as vitamins and minerals that are often lacking in simple sugar, making it a healthier alternative to refined sugar. Remember to gradually introduce honey so that your child gets familiar with the flavour and their body adjusts to the new dietary item. Once your child has developed a taste for honey, you may incorporate it into his or her balanced diet to make it more healthy.

बच्चों में सर्दी,खांसी और जुकाम ठीक करने के घरेलु उपचार और खाद्य पदार्थ 

cough and cold home remedy

हर बदलते मौसम के साथ, दुनिया भर में माता-पिता के बीच सबसे बड़ी चिंता अपने बच्चों को सर्दी, खांसी और फ्लू से बचाने की होती है। बच्चों को लगभग छह महीने की उम्र के बाद सर्दी और खांसी होने लगती है, जब उन्हें अपनी माँ से मिली प्रतिरोधक क्षमता कम हो जाती है और उन्हें अपनी खुद की प्रतिरक्षा का निर्माण करना होता है। सर्दी, खांसी और जुकाम सबसे आम शिकायतों में से एक है जिसके लिए माता-पिता अपने बच्चों को डॉक्टर के पास ले जाते हैं। सर्दी, खांसी और जुकाम के लक्षणों को ठीक करने के लिए कुछ घरेलू उपचार और खाद्य पदार्थ बच्चों में रोग प्रतिरोधक क्षमता (इम्युनिटी) बनाने में मदद कर सकते हैं। विभिन्न प्रकार की खांसी को समझने से उनका बेहतर इलाज करने में मदद मिलती है।

सर्दी, खांसी और जुकाम बच्चे की प्रतिरोधक क्षमता को कैसे प्रभावित करती है?

बच्चों को सर्दी या खांसी तब होती है, जब कोई वायरस नाक और गले की परत के संपर्क में आता है। बच्चों में सर्दी, खांसी और जुकाम पैदा करने वाले दो सौ से अधिक विभिन्न वायरस हैं, लेकिन राइनोवायरस सबसे आम अपराधी है। लक्षणों में भरी हुई या बहती नाक, छींकना और खाँसी शामिल हैं। हालांकि, फ्लू के लक्षण सर्दी से ज्यादा गंभीर होते हैं और इसमें बुखार, सिरदर्द, गले में खराश, कंजेशन शामिल हैं। हर बार जब बच्चे किसी विशिष्ट वायरस से संक्रमित होते हैं, तो उनकी प्रतिरक्षा प्रणाली एंटीबॉडी विकसित करती है, जो उन्हें अगली बार इससे लड़ने में मदद करती है। लेकिन कई अलग-अलग वायरस हैं, इसलिए एक प्रभावी प्रतिरक्षा प्रणाली बनाने में समय लगता है। कई बार इन लक्षणों के लिए दवाएं लेने से तुरंत राहत मिल सकती है लेकिन बच्चे की रोग प्रतिरोधक क्षमता पर नकारात्मक प्रभाव पड़ता है।

कौन से खाद्य पदार्थ बच्चों में रोग प्रतिरोधक क्षमता बढ़ाने में मदद कर सकते हैं?

गिलोय:

यह आयुर्वेदिक दवाओं में एक आवश्यक जड़ी बूटी है। गिलोय का उपयोग कई तरह की स्वास्थ्य स्थितियों के इलाज के लिए किया जाता है। इसमें टेरपेनोइड्स, एल्कलॉइड्स, लिग्नांस और स्टेरॉयड जैसे महत्वपूर्ण पौधे यौगिक होते हैं। अनुसंधान से पता चलता है कि इन यौगिकों में रोगाणुरोधी, विरोधी भड़काऊ, एंटीऑक्सिडेंट और मधुमेह विरोधी गुण होते हैं, अन्य लाभों के बीच जो प्रतिरक्षा को बढ़ावा देने में मदद करते हैं।

तुलसी:

तुलसी के पत्ते वैज्ञानिक रूप से सिद्ध हो चुके हैं कि इनमें औषधीय गुण होते हैं। इसमें एंटीबैक्टीरियल, एंटीवायरल और एंटीफंगल प्रभाव भी होते हैं, जो विटामिन सी और जिंक से भरपूर होते हैं और इस तरह संक्रमण को दूर रखते हैं और स्वाभाविक रूप से प्रतिरक्षा को बढ़ाते हैं।

आंवला

अश्वगंधा:

एक एंटी-ऑक्सीडेंट के रूप में, प्रतिरक्षा को बढ़ावा देना अश्वगंधा के सबसे लोकप्रिय लाभों में से एक है। यह जड़ एंजाइम मैक्रोफेज के स्तर को सक्रिय करता है और बढ़ाता है | मैक्रोफेज एक प्रकार की श्वेत रक्त कोशिका है जो खराब वायरस और बैक्टीरिया को मारती है। यह एंटीबॉडी के विकास को भी बढ़ावा देता है |

हल्दी:

हल्दी में पाया जाने वाला एक यौगिक, करक्यूमिन, चिकित्सीय राहत प्रदान करता है और बच्चों के लिए एक उत्तम प्रतिरक्षा बूस्टर है। शरीर को आक्रमणकारी संक्रमणों से बचाने के लिए इसमें बहुत अधिक एंटीऑक्सीडेंट मूल्य होता है। यह विटामिन ए, थायमिन (बी1), राइबोफ्लेविन (बी2) और विटामिन सी से भी भरपूर होता है।

नट्स/मेवे:

बादाम, काजू, मूंगफली और हेज़लनट जैसे नट्स में पाया जाने वाला विटामिन ई प्रतिरक्षा प्रणाली को हमलावर बैक्टीरिया से लड़ने में मदद करता है। वे एंटीऑक्सिडेंट का एक बड़ा स्रोत हैं जो मुक्त कणों को निष्क्रिय करके और सूजन को कम करके शरीर को स्वस्थ और रोग मुक्त रखते हैं। दिमाग के विकास के लिए भी नट्स फायदेमंद होते हैं। (कुछ सिद्ध मस्तिष्क खाद्य पदार्थ क्या हैं?)

बीज:

बीज पोषक तत्वों का एक अविश्वसनीय स्रोत हैं। सूरजमुखी के बीज मैग्नीशियम, विटामिन ई, एंटीऑक्सिडेंट और अच्छे वसा से भरपूर होते हैं। साथ में वे प्रतिरक्षा को बढ़ावा देने में मदद करते हैं। कद्दू के बीज विटामिन ई से भरपूर होते हैं जो इम्युनिटी बिल्डिंग के लिए आवश्यक होते हैं और हड्डियों के निर्माण के लिए अन्य पोषक तत्वों जैसे पोटेशियम, मैग्नीशियम और विटामिन के से भी भरपूर होते हैं। खरबूजे के बीज जिंक का एक अच्छा स्रोत हैं। यह हमारी प्रतिरक्षा को बढ़ावा देने में मदद करता है, पाचन, कोशिका वृद्धि में मदद करता है और आपके तंत्रिका तंत्र को स्वस्थ रखता है।

एंटीऑक्सीडेंट:

कोको में फ्लेवोनोइड होता है, जो पौधों में पाया जाने वाला एक प्राकृतिक रूप से पाया जाने वाला यौगिक है जो एंटीऑक्सिडेंट के रूप में कार्य करता है और शरीर में मुक्त कणों का मुकाबला करने में मदद करता है। यह जिंक, आयरन, कॉपर और विटामिन जैसे ए, बी12 और के से भरपूर है। विटामिन ई एक शक्तिशाली एंटीऑक्सिडेंट है और इसमें मेजबान प्रतिरक्षा कार्यों को संशोधित करने की क्षमता है। विटामिन ई मजबूत प्रतिरक्षा और स्वस्थ त्वचा और आंखों के लिए महत्वपूर्ण है। हाल के वर्षों में, विटामिन ई की खुराक एंटीऑक्सिडेंट के रूप में लोकप्रिय हो गई है।

बच्चों के लिए सर्दी, खांसी और जुकाम का घरेलू उपचार:

मालिश:

सरसों का तेल गरम करें और उसमें लहसुन और अजवायन भून लें। ठंडा होने पर इस तेल को बच्चे के सिर, हथेली, पैरों के तलवे, छाती और पीठ पर लगाएं। इसे लगाकर छोड़ दें और बच्चे को सोने दें। यह सर्दी और खांसी दोनों को ठीक करने में मदद करेगा। साथ ही, बच्चे के शरीर में जो भी दर्द है उसका समाधान किया जाएगा। सरसों का तेल खांसी-जुकाम का बेहद असरदार घरेलू इलाज है।

1 से 2 चम्मच गुनगुना सरसों का तेल लें और उसमें आधा चम्मच सेंधा नमक मिलाएं। फिर इस तेल से बच्चे की छाती और पीठ पर धीरे से मालिश करें, सूती कपड़े से ढक दें। सरसों के तेल की गर्माहट कंजेशन से राहत दिलाने में मदद करती है।

अदरक के रस को कद्दूकस करके निकाल लें और उसमें थोडा सा शहद मिला लें। इस मिश्रण को अपने 1 वर्ष से अधिक उम्र के बच्चे को दिन में दो बार जल्दी राहत के लिए दें।

एक गिलास गर्म पानी में एक चम्मच नमक मिलाकर पीने से गले की खराश दूर होती है। अपने बच्चे को दिन में दो बार नमक के पानी से गरारे करने के लिए कहें। खारा पानी दर्द को शांत करने में मदद करता है।

सोने की स्थिति:

रात भर बनी रहने वाली खांसी और बंद नाक से कुछ राहत देने के लिए अपने बच्चे के सिर को ऊंचा रखें। (नींद और मस्तिष्क का विकास कैसे संबंधित है?)

काली मिर्च:

काली मिर्च को घी में भूनकर दिन में 2-3 बार सेवन करने से बंद नाक में आराम मिलता है। इसके अलावा, काली मिर्च विटामिन सी से भरपूर होती है जो इम्युनिटी को बूस्ट करने में मदद करती है।

आहार:

एसिड रिफ्लक्स को रोकने के लिए तले और मसालेदार भोजन से बचें, जिससे खांसी और सर्दी हो सकती है। सूप, दलिया और खिचड़ी जैसे नरम और गर्म खाद्य पदार्थ खाने और पचने में आसान होते हैं। (कुछ आसान खिचड़ी रेसिपी क्या हैं?) इसके अलावा, जब बच्चे बीमार होते हैं, तो उनकी भूख भी कम हो जाती है। यदि कोई बच्चा अक्सर बीमार पड़ता है, तो इससे उसका वजन भी कम हो सकता है। (बच्चों के लिए वजन बढ़ाने वाले कुछ खाद्य पदार्थ क्या हैं?)

शहद हल्दी इम्युनिटी बॉल्स पकाने की विधि:

आइए छिपी हुई जड़ी-बूटियों और नट्स के साथ हर उस भोजन को अधिक पौष्टिक और स्वादिष्ट बनाने की कोशिश करें जो बच्चा खाना चाहता है।

10 Most effective home remedies for diarrhea in kids

Diarrhea is something which bothers every parent, as it drains too much fluid and makes your little one feel weak. It is a digestive problem that causes loose and watery stool, three to four times a day. Diarrhea in kids is a common condition, which can lead to dehydration or even more serious problems.

Diarrhea  is common in all age groups of kids and is unavoidable because you can’t stop them from playing and getting infected. Infection from viruses like rotavirus, bacteria like salmonella and rarely parasites like giardia are the most common causes of diarrhea in kids.

Causes of Diarrhea in kids.

The suspected causes of diarrhea in kids are:

  • Virus, commonly called stomach flu.
  • Bacterial infection
  • Food intolerance like lactose intolerance or gluten intolerance
  • Food allergy
  • Reaction to medicines.
  • Weaker digestive system.
Symptoms of diarrhea in kids:

Diarrhea can be acute or severe, where acute diarrhea lasts for not more than a week. Severe or prolonged diarrhea lasts longer and  has many other signs. Symptoms of diarrhea in kids may vary from child to child. Generally the symptoms may include.

  • Upset stomach
  • Loose and watery stool
  • Abdominal pain
  • Vomition
  • Bloating
  • Cramping
  • Bloody stool
  • Dehydration
  • Loss of appetite
  • Fever
When to consult a doctor?

Mild symptoms of diarrhea can be treated at home. However, if your child develops any of the below mentioned symptoms, consult your pediatrician.

  • If diarrhea persists for more than a week.
  • Vomiting along with diarrhea.
  • Severe stomach pain.
  • Increase in the baby’s body temperature more than 101 degree Fahrenheit.
  • Blood in stool.
  • If the baby is losing weight.
  • If there are symptoms of dehydration in a baby.
Tips for diarrhea in kids:

Rehydration: Rehydration is the process of restoring lost water or fluid to the body. The World Health Organization (WHO) and UNICEF recommended Oral Rehydration Salt (ORS) as essential for clinical treatment of acute diarrhea. ORS treats dehydration caused by severe diarrhea through the replacement of lost fluid, salt, sugar, potassium and other nutrients. Ask your doctor about what type and quantity of ORS to be used.

Maintain hygiene: The most important thing is to maintain a hygienic surrounding. Keep every belonging of your child clean and properly sterilized as far as possible. Proper handwashing can help prevent diarrhea.

Developing immunity: To boost up your kid’s immunity to fight infections just stick to nutrient rich foods, probiotics and follow their vaccination schedule.

Home remedies and foods to overcome diarrhea

Besides keeping your baby hydrated, it is also important to take care of their diet. Offer small meals to your baby at regular intervals. Foods rich in carbohydrates help to maintain the energy level of the body during diarrhea. Potassium rich foods are also important, which may be lost in large quantities through diarrhea. Here is the list of foods that you can offer to your baby during diarrhea:

1.Sugar salt solution:

The body loses a lot of sugar and salt during diarrhea, which is the main cause of dehydration in kids. The first home remedy for diarrhea is homemade sugar salt solution. Boil one liter water let it cool, now add one teaspoon of salt and 8 teaspoons of sugar. Give this solution in regular interval. This is an excellent remedy to keep your baby hydrated during diarrhea.

2.Banana:

It is best to give during diarrhea as it helps to harden the stool. Banana is the rich source of potassium, which helps to balance electrolytes lost due to frequent loose motions. It is a rich source of iron and fiber which contributes to a healthy digestive tract. It is a superfood which can be used as a complete plant to treat digestion. (How to use banana stem in food everyday?)

3.Buttermilk:

Buttermilk is rich in calcium, vitamin D, vitamin B12, protein, carbohydrates and low in fat. It has great probiotics properties that help to increase the production of good bacteria in the digestive tract, which improves kids gut health, boosts immunity and prevents acidity. It helps to ease the discomfort in the digestive tract. (Nutritious summer drinks for kids keep hydrated)

4.Boiled potato:

Potatoes are easy to digest and best to give your baby during diarrhea as it is high in carbohydrate and provides adequate energy that is lost during loose motion.

5.Coconut water:

It is a good source of vitamin C, magnesium, calcium, potassium, fiber and natural enzymes, which promotes proper digestion. It is rich in nutrients and electrolytes, which makes it an excellent choice to control dehydration. (Coconut remedy for cough for kids)

6.Nutmeg:

Nutmeg or Jaiphal has antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties, which helps to reduce microbial infection and reduces intestinal inflammation. It also has anti-secretory components which helps to reduce the loss of fluid from the body during diarrhea. You can make the powder by rubbing nutmeg on the stone grinder. Give your baby a pinch of this powder with some water. This is also great to treat cold and cough. (Foods and remedies to help with cold and flu)

7.Ginger juice:

Ginger has antibacterial properties that help heal internal infections. This is a reason why ginger juice stands to be effective in treating diarrhoea in children. Add some grated ginger to 500ml of boiling water. Drain the water and let it cool . give sip of this drink to your child throughout the day

8.Lemon juice:

While suffering from diarrhoea, a glass full of lemon juice can help ease the symptoms by neutralising the acids in the stomach and countering bacterial infections.

9.MOONG DAL (MUNG BEAN): 

Mung bean (Moong dal) is an outstanding prebiotic,which helps to maintain gut health. Rich in both soluble and insoluble fiber, It helps in digestion and adds more bulk to stool. It is extremely high in Protein, which digests slowly and keeps the kids energetic.(Why to sprout beans for kids?)

10. RICE WATER:

Rice water is starchy water left after rice is cooked. It is a great source of energy, as it contains carbohydrates. It also maintains the fluid level of the body and decreases the frequency of stool.

Foods to avoid during diarrhea.

When your baby is having diarrhea or in the recovery phase, you should avoid these foods.

  • Milk and dairy products
  • Fried  and greasy foods
  • Spicy foods
  • Processed foods specially those with addictive
  • Foods that cause extra gas like  such as cabbage, beans, broccoli, and cauliflower.
