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.

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.

White spots on kid’s face: causes and remedies

White spot on the face is the most common skin problem among kids. It can be caused by a variety of conditions, including allergies and nutritional deficiencies. White patches on the skin usually appear when the skin protein or dead cell becomes trapped under the skin’s surface. Depigmentation can also be the reason.

Generally white spots are not a reason to worry or concern, but still it is important to get it checked by a dermatologist, to know the causes or treatment.

Causes of white spot on kid’s face
Mineral and Vitamin deficiency:

We are what we eat. We all know the importance of a balanced and nutritious diet, but kids being fussy eaters miss the required nutrients, as a result they suffer from mineral and vitamin deficiencies and white spots on their face can be one of them. Deficiencies in calcium, vitamin D and vitamin E can cause white patches on the skin.

Vitamin B12 is responsible for the production of melanin in the body. Deficiency in this vitamin can also lead to white spots.

Tinea versicolor:

Tinea versicolor is the common fungal infection of the skin. It  is a skin condition characterized by patches of lighter or darker skin. This is caused by a type of yeast (fungus) that is found on most people’s skin. It is generally not harmful and isn’t contagious. They are especially common on the back, chest, neck and/or arms. They may occur on the face as well, particularly in children. People who have a weakened immune system are generally more susceptible to infections. People who live in a humid or hot climate are affected more. Exposure to the sun can make these patches even worse.

Pityriasis alba:

Pityriasis alba is a common skin disorder of patches of light-colored (hypopigmented) areas. The cause is unknown  but usually appears during summers and the humid season may be linked to atopic dermatitis (eczema). The disorder is most common in children and teens. They are mostly located on the face, arms, and upper trunk and are more noticeable in people with darker skin types. Starts with red, scaly, itchy patches. These patches eventually heal and leave behind faint, white spots.

Worm Infection

This reason is still under research. Some people claim the white patches are due to worms in the stomach. Though this reason is not sure, you can still deworm your kids once in a while. (How to deworm kids naturally?)

Tips to prevent white spot on kid’s face:

You can prevent your child from white spots on face simply by following these tips’

  • Always make sure that your child is applying a broad spectrum sunscreen before going out in the sun.  It’s better to use sunscreen as recommended by a doctor. (How to apply a sunscreen?)
  • Give your child a balanced diet to meet their daily nutritional needs. So that they do not suffer from any deficiency. (what is a balanced diet for kids?)
  • However there is no study to prove the impact of worms on white spots on the face, no harm to get your baby deworm every 6 months.
  • Make sure the face is not oily and sweaty, wash the face with a mild foaming cleanser and clean it often with cold water, at least 2 to 3 times a day.
  • If these white patches are due to some fungal infection, then use antifungal cream as prescribed by the doctor.
  • Some pediatricians may also advise using non-perfume and non-dye emollients. This will prevent dry skin which might sometimes lead to Pityriasis Alba.

However these white spots on the face or Pityriasis Alba is a self-limiting disease and is likely to disappear on its own. There is no specific treatment for white spots, but if the affected area have severe itching or whitish patch has changed color to reddish and is also spreading, it’s better to consult your pediatrician or dermatologist 

Foods that may help to prevent white spot on face

There are certain foods that you must include to your child’s daily diet to avoid white spots on face of kids

CALCIUM:

Deficiency of calcium not only can cause white spots on the face but also results in weaker bones. It is really important to get strong bones and we get a chance to build them only once – throughout childhood and adolescence. Children who get enough calcium in childhood start their adult lives with the strongest bones possible. Mostly calcium is stored in bones and teeth where it supports their structure and hardness, but the body also needs calcium for muscles to move and for nerves to carry messages between the brain and every body part. Calcium is predominantly found in milk and milk based products like cheese. And is also found in smaller quantities in some nuts and seeds. (Should kids take whey protein?) Moreover, few herbs such as shallaki also contain calcium.

Vitamin D:

Every single cell in the body requires this Vitamin D. Body can also produce this through cholesterol exposure to sunlight. However, deficiency of Vitamin D is common in kids and along with white spots results in weaker bones and muscles, fatigue, depression, body pain, and extreme hair loss (alopecia). Vitamin D too has to be consumed with fat (oil). For e.g. Cheese has vitamin D and fat both, so it’s a great food supplement for children to meet this nutrition.

Vitamin E:

It is an important vitamin that also acts as a powerful antioxidant, which helps to protect the body against damage caused by free radicals (pollution, lifestyle, stress, processed food).Vitamin E is a fat soluble vitamin which can be stored in the body. It is rarely found deficient in kids who eat nuts, seeds and greens. This vitamin is vital in protecting against any infections and damage to eyes, skin, and brain and enables regeneration of cells to keep organs healthy and active.

Vitamin B12:

Also known as Cobalamin is important for the production of blood cells and melanin in the body to sustain healthy nerve cells in the body. Apart from white spots on the face, vitamin B12 shortage can also lead to a number of symptoms including weakness, exhaustion, constipation, a decreased appetite, and weight. Failure to meet the minimum requirements can also have negative effects on the nervous system and can lead to mental illness such as confusion, depression and dementia. The main food sources of vitamin B12 are Dairy products, fish, meat, beef liver, and fortified cereals. 

Home remedies for white spot on face
Ginger:

It has anti-inflammatory  antibacterial, antiviral properties that make it an excellent home remedy for healing skin discoloration. Cut a slice of ginger and place it on the affected area. Let it sit there until the ginger dries. Repeat this one to two times a day till a few weeks to see the results.

Tulsi:

Tulsi is an important herb and every household should have it. With its antibiotic and excellent antifungal properties, it kills the fungi that cause discoloration. Make your child chew 2 to 3 leaves daily to see positive results in a few weeks.

Coconut oil:

Coconut oil applied to the skin is an anti-inflammatory that will encourage the growth of new pigment. It protects your skin from the harmful UV radiations by acting as a barrier between your skin and the radiations. This acts as a natural sunscreen as few studies have stated that it can block about 15-20% of the sun’s UV radiation

Copper pot:

If you eat more copper (by using copper pots) you can aid in the production of melanin which may help prevent future melanin loss. Cooking in copper is not advisable when it comes to salty and acidic food since they react with the metal but eating in these is useful .

It is a condition when bowel movement becomes less frequent and stool becomes difficult to pass, which can cause pain and discomfort. Constipation is a nutrient-deficient disease which is caused by lack of fibre. Constipation is not just about how often your baby poops, but it’s also about how difficult it is for your baby to poop (hard stool or hard potty). As long as your child is healthy and passes normal stool without any pain or discomfort, having a bowel movement every second or third day is normal.

How fiber rich foods can help?

Eating processed and packaged food is a common phenomenon nowadays. Children who consume a lot of refined and processed foods in their regular lifestyle, have a higher chance of developing obesity. Such foods are high in sodium and added sugar and lack fiber resulting in poor digestion among children. Fiber is essential to bind with bile and support daily digestion. Lack of fiber directly hampers the digestive system of process kids. 

Fiber is the non-digestible carbohydrate. It is responsible in keeping our digestion healthy and regular. The usual cycle of digestion is between 1 to 1.5 days. However, with the current food choices, this time has become 4 days. So even though your child may be regular, he might still be 4 days late (constipated).

Fiber travels to the large intestine without being digested and also helps to flush out toxins like excess cholesterol, lead, mercury etc. that get released from food. In the absence of Fiber, these waste products get reabsorbed by the body. In addition, fiber is also the food for the good bacteria living in the large intestine (gut).

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 uncongottable 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:

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?)
