HOW WHEY PROTEIN HELPS IN A CHILD’S GROWTH AND DEVELOPMENT

Being a parent it’s important to understand the needs of your child’s body for proper growth and development. The series of growth stages as an infant to a toddler followed by adolescence (puberty phase), they have to go through not only physical changes but also emotional ups and downs. What do these growth stages exactly mean? How whey protein for children can help?(5 Power foods for kids growth)

The term growth includes physical growth (height/ weight), while development is growth in function and capability of various organs which can help your child to learn, understand and perform their routine work efficiently. Between 2 to 10 years, a child grows at a steady pace. The main growing phase begins at the start of puberty, between ages 10 – 16. A child’s body needs some special nutrients with these changes in growth rates. (What is a balanced meal for a child?)

Let’s look at one nutrient closely.

whey protein for children

WHEY PROTEIN FOR CHILDren:

Whey is considered to be complete protein because it contains 9 essential amino acids and has low lactose content which makes it easily digestible. Leucine present in whey helps with building muscles too. These are the main reasons, why whey protein for children is essential during growing age. Although protein is the main building block for your kid’s body, but getting it from supplements may lead to health concerns. So acquiring it from natural sources like hand full of nuts and seeds or some dairy products is much beneficial. (3 supplements a body needs)

SOURCE OF WHEY PROTEIN FOR ChILDren:

When baby is born, mother’s breast milk contains 90% whey protein and about 10 % casein. That is why it is recommended to breastfeed babies for six months since whey is easier and quicker to digest. Breast milk acts as best immunity booster for new born. Other than that, whey is derived from cow’s milk which is made up of 80% casein and 20% of whey. Casein takes longer to digest and hence is recommended for older kids. A general practice to take milk just before bedtime is preferred since milk digests slowly due to higher casein proportion.

HOW TO GIVE WHEY TO KIDS?

What is the best whey protein for kids? Whey protein for children can be made at home with the left-over fluid when yogurt is curdled (what is the process of making whey at home?) during the process of cheese production. Or else add whey protein in milk and give to your child.

How whey protein helps:

Whey not only promotes growth and development of muscles in kids, but also boosts their natural defence power against infection and support a healthy immune system. The suggested intake of protein is about 0.8 per kg of body weight. For example, if your kid is 12-13 kgs, then the amount of daily protein intake would need to be roughly around 10 gm. Apart from healthy eating habits, it’s important to understand the role of whey protein in your kid’s growth. (Tasty options to fast-food)

WHEN WHEY PROTEIN FOR CHILDREN IS NEEDED?

Toddler years are time of growth and development and protein plays an important role during this phase. Whey is also a rich source of protein for fussy eaters. Nowadays, it is sold as the most popular type of protein powder as it is easy to source and comes in various flavors too. For older kids and teens who are into athletics, taking whey protein in milk can help to increase their strength and muscle mass. However, excess intake of protein through protein powders can be unnecessary if you are getting more than enough protein through your daily diet. (Easy protein food sources)

It is an interesting fact that body has no space to save that extra protein you eat. It all gets converted to fat or carbs which is not what you would prefer. Protein is made of 20 amino acids and the body needs all of these in certain ratio to make protein. The moment one of the amino acids required to make protein gets finished, protein making process stops. Hence, there is no point in bulking on protein from a single source. Keep variety in food and that will help achieve the goal of consuming all the amino acids to make all the required amount of protein in the body.

Are there any side effect of whey protein?

Although there are no side effect of whey protein and it is mostly safe for children and adults, but high doses can cause some side effects. For example, side effect of whey protein may include increased bowel movements, nausea, thirst, bloating, cramps, loss of appetite, fatigue and headache if taken in high quantity. Very active children (who participates in sports and athletics) may need little more protein than other kids. Home-made whey protein for kids like shakes or dishes (whey protein buns recipe) are a wonderful way to pack in some protein along with a bunch of other healthy vitamins and minerals.

Cashews: 6 reasons to feed your child everyday

cashew nuts benefits for health

Survey of 150 parents reflected on the top concerns they had for their kids. Some of the concerns, mentioned below, can be improved with the consumption of just a single nut- Cashew! What are the benefits of cashew nut? Consuming just 4-8 cashews for kids aged 3 to 15 years is enough to aid daily nutrition. Cashew nuts benefits for health include improved bones, eyesight, skin, hair, digestion and energy levels.

Cashews are increasingly becoming common as cooking medium in households. They are just perfect replacement to dairy-based cheese or milk. Worldwide, families are preferring plant-based cashew for their vegan diet. Not only is the nut nutritious, but it is also extremely creamy and slightly sweetish in flavour which works perfect for various desserts and gravy.

Cashew NUTS BENEFITS FOR HEALTH:

Overall health:

Cashew is a great source of antioxidants that keep body healthy and disease free by neutralising free radicals and reducing inflammation. Study presents that roasted cashews appear to have an increased antioxidant level compared with raw cashews.

Bones:

Benefits of cashew nuts include stronger bones. Being high in Copper, Calcium, Manganese and Magnesium, this nut supports stronger bones. Deficiency of these minerals have shown to cause osteoporosis later in life.

Eyesight:

Due to excessive pollution and screen time, kids often suffer from eye infection and weak vision. Cashews contains a powerful antioxidant called Zea Xanthin which is absorbed by retina and helps in maintaining eye health.

Digestion:

Cashews are good source of fibre which aids in better digestion. Some research suggests that consuming whole, raw cashews benefits in weight loss too since only 70% fat of the nut is absorbed by the body and the rest is excreted with fibre. However excessive consumption may cause bloating.

High Energy:

Cashews are one of the most ideal source of quick energy for atheletes since they are high in protein. It is also a rich source of copper which is necessary to absorb iron in the body to keep energy levels high (haemoglobin high)

Hair and Skin:

Another benefits of cashew nuts are improved hair & skin. Copper in cashew helps in building skin and hair pigment which also gives the color and shine. It also supports production of collagen and elastin resulting in healthy skin.

Cashews should be consumed raw, not salted. This is primarily because cashew and salt together decrease the nutrition of the body. Cashew is a great source of calcium for bones. Salt has sodium. When calcium combines with sodium, it results in lack of absorption of calcium by the body which causes weaker bones and teeth. You can read more about this here.

There is some research on how the nutrition property changes when the nuts are consumed raw vs. roasted. For cashews, roasting the nut increases the lineolic acid (good for our brain, heart) significantly. Roast and enjoy!

how to eat almonds?

There are many ways Almond nut can be consumed by a child. Kids love to eat chocolate. Roasting almonds and dipping them in chocolate makes a great snack for kids to eat any time during the day. And it also takes away the urge to eat something chocolatey or sweet. Almonds can also be made into a butter for spreading on bread. Or grind into a flour to be used to make cookies or added to cake batter. Roasted almond powder can also be added to hot or cold porridge. Roasting Almonds do not impact the nutrition value of the nut.

Kids who are picky eaters usually tend to miss on their daily nutrition. Just a minor tweak of adding Almonds to their daily diet can help them meet daily requirement of several vitamins and minerals. Almonds have high quality of calories which not only adds nutrition but also helps in managing weight of a child. They tend to make the child feel fuller faster than other foods resulting in reduced urge to consume comfort-food or over-eat meals.

Research suggests that just by eating nuts regularly for five or more days a week, a person can increase life span by two years. This is one of the easiest and tastiest way of extending life. Another study states that not eating enough nuts and seeds was the third leading dietary factor for disability in the world. Isn’t it just amazing how a handful of nuts and seeds can do us so good.

How to add 9g protein to your diet easily to rebuild your Body cells?

Why is Protein rich diet important?

Proteins are the primary structural components of cells and perform a few different duties. It is considered the body’s building block and repair agent. The primary function of the protein consumed in the diet is to build and repair cells, including the muscle cells damaged when exercising to the point of momentary fatigue. Protein is also integral in forming enzymes and hormones in the body. From digestion to immunity, from hair to nails, everything requires protein. The suggested intake of protein is decided at 0.8 gm per kg of body weight. For athletes or kids in active sports, few studies state that it is best to eat protein within 30 minutes of exercise. This is the period when most muscle formation or muscle repair happens, and timely protein consumption of foods with protein for kids enables that. (Easy ways to add protein to kid’s diet )

Protein rich diet helps in:

  • Higher energy
  • Weight loss
  • Building muscles
  • Sharper brain and focus

Daily recommended intake of protein is 50g on an average.

Protein intake can be calculated individually by multiplying 0.8 * body weight in kg

How to get 9g of instant Protein?

Just grab a handful of roasted or soaked nuts to get 9g of instant protein.

Peanuts: Technically a legume, this nut is widely and easily available and affordable too. It is one of the most dense foods with protein for kids. Just a handful of peanuts can give 9 g of protein to the body. In addition, it is full of over 30 nutrients and hence one of the best foods for children’s growth. (What are the other benefits of peanuts?)

Almonds: The second best contender in the category with 8g of protein in just a handful of nuts is also one of the best foods for children’s growth. An expensive yet easily available source of high nutrition carries highest fiber in this nut category. (What are the other benefits of almonds?)

Pistachios: A seed of a pistachio tree, this perceived nut offers 7g protein in just a handful and best to use as foods with protein for kids. Protein accounts for approximately 21 percent of the total weight of the nut, making it a good source for vegetarians and vegans. It is one of the best nuts to consume in a large quantity since its low in calories yet loaded with good fat. (What are the other benefits of pistachios?)

Cashew: It is also among the best foods for children’s growth. A favorite of many, this nut has 6g of protein in just a handful. It is a quick source of high quality carbohydrates for kids with a variety of health benefits. (What are the other benefits of cashews?)

Walnut: Despite being a little less in protein at 5g per handful, this wonder nut is loaded with good fats which are vital for the brain. (What are the other benefits of walnuts?)

Hazelnut: Similar to walnut in its nutrition profile, this nut also has 5g of protein per handful. Preferred by kids in chocolates and spreads, this nut is a nutritious snack with lots of essential fat.
