Baby’s milestone: 6 foods that help in walking

The first year of a baby’s life is the most crucial year for their gross motor skill development. Motor skills refer to the body’s ability to manage the process of movement. Gross Motor skills involves baby’s milestone like holding head, sitting, crawling and walking. During her first year, your baby is busy developing coordination and muscle strength in every part of her body.

Babies develop their skills gradually. It’s so overwhelming to see your newborn doing new activities everyday, but these abilities don’t develop overnight. Babies put a lot of effort and handwork to achieve these motor skills. There are a lot of new parents frequently asking questions around baby development including when babies typically hold their head, sit up, roll over crawl and finally walk. So below are some baby’s milestone related these motor skills.

Baby’s milestone
Head control:

Your baby’s first big milestone is his/her control over the head. Babies are born with fairly weak muscles and they will rely upon you to support their head and neck. By the end of 2 months the baby should be able to lift it slightly and turn from side to side while lying on their stomach. All these little movements help strengthen the baby’s neck muscles. By 6 months generally the baby will be able to hold their head steady and gain control over their neck.

Roll over:

At around 4 months the baby starts to roll over. When you place them on their tummy they will begin to push up on their arm. Tummy to side rolling is most common in babies at this age. By 6 months most babies have gained enough abdominal strength to flip in both directions and roll over from their back to front. Rolling over helps strengthen the upper body and neck muscles that your baby needs to sit up. So always encourage your baby to roll over by placing toys or books near to them, so that they roll over to reach those things.

Setting:

Holding head control and having enough upper body strength is a must for a baby  before he/ she is able to sit up on their own. At around 5 to 6 months, babies begin to sit with little support. At 9 months babies can sit without any support and easily get in and out of sitting position.

Walking:

Once the baby is comfortable in sitting, the next baby’s milestone is walking. Just like other milestone, walking age also varies between children. Some take their first step around 9 to 12 months while others may take a little longer time i.e around 15 to 17 months. At around 9 months, babies most likely start trying to pull themselves up to stand while holding something like bed or sofa. Soon they also try to take some steps holding from one side of the furniture to the next. They may also be able to stand without support till their first birthday. At 14 months normally most of the babies walk a few steps independently and by the end of 17 months your child will become steadier in his/ her walk.

Causes of delay

Motor skill development of the child is an important aspect in a child’s overall growth and development. But problems in sitting, crawling and walking are the most common developmental delay a child faces. A child with motor skill developmental delay may experience difficulty coordinating certain movements such as holding a pencil, walking and performing activities requiring brain and body coordination. Blow are some of the basic causes of these delays in kids:

  • Premature birth
  • Cerebral Palsy (brain damage before birth)
  • Myopathy (a disease of muscles)
  • Brain injury
  • Ataxia (defective muscle coordination)
  • Problems with vision
  • Spina Bifida (birth defect in the baby that occurs when the spine and spinal cord do not develop completely)
Tips to improve motor skill

 Usually a child who is late doing certain activities catches up to other children. But sometimes, developing late is the sign of a health condition. In case a child does not show any of the above mentioned motor skill development on time, talk with your pediatrician. In addition, try these tips mentioned below

  • Give your baby plenty of tummy time.  Lay your baby on his tummy and place the toys he/ she likes in front of them.  It helps strengthen your baby’s arms, legs, torso, as well as his neck muscles.
  • Once the baby gains control over their head, you can encourage them to sit by placing a pillow around them for support. Be careful and stay close to help them if they fall.
  • Try sitting them on the floor while holding their back up straight. This helps improve their muscle control and coordination.
  • Once the baby starts sitting independently, encourage them to crawl. Set up an area on the floor with their favorite toys and things that they can explore and if they don’t crawl to reach out to toys show them how to crawl by doing yourself and ask your baby to imitate.
  • Once your baby pulls himself up and gains balance holding your hands, guide him take a few steps, this will help him gain confidence to take those first steps.
  • When the baby starts balancing and standing for a few seconds, start balancing games. Sit with the baby on the floor and help them stand up. Then count how long they can stay up before falling. Don’t forget to praise after each attempt.
  • Allow your child to be bare feet. There are tiny muscles in the feet that need to be developed. You can do this by bearing weight on them. The muscles in your feet can easily grasp the ground when bare feet.
  • Place their favorite things just out of reach so they have no choice but to try and stand to get it.
  • Bouncing a baby up and down strengthens their lower body and works on their balance. Hold their arms and hands, and assist them in learning to bounce.
Foods to improve motor skill:

As soon as your baby is 6 months, taking care of their diet, as food or nutrients that they get from food is key for a baby to achieve different milestones on time. Nutrients like protein helps in muscle strengthening, calcium and vitamin d promotes bone health and the most important foods that promote brain healthy like omega 3 fatty acids, as these developments involve the brain and body’s muscles to work together. Below are the foods that help in baby’s milestones like sitting, crawling and walking.

Omega 3:

Research has established a link between omega 3 fatty acids and brain development in early childhood. These healthy fats have amazing brain boosting power and play a vital role in enhancing memory and attention span. Omega-3 fatty acids are considered as critical brain foods that may counteract oxidative stress and inflammations, two drivers of cognitive decline which may also result in motor skill delay.

Nuts:

All the nuts like almonds, walnuts, cashew, peanuts and hazelnuts are rich in vitamin E and help in boosting memory. They are also antioxidants which protect against cell damage. Walnuts are rich in omega 3 fatty acids and are a valuable substance for brain function, memory and thinking abilities. This fatty acid also encourages cognitive functions. ( best nuts for protein)

Seeds:

Apart from nuts, seeds like flex, chia, melon, sesame and pumpkins also contain powerful antioxidants like vitamin E that protect the brain from free radical damage. Sunflower seeds impact overall mood and mental processing powers and therefore it is considered a brain boosting snack. Pumpkin seeds are high in magnesium, copper, and much higher in zinc than other seeds, which help in increasing concentration, memory and thus helps in better coordination.

Ayurvedic Herbs:

Ayurveda has the potential to not only correct imbalances in our children, but also to set them on an enduring path toward optimal health and well-being. Thus, ayurvedic herbs must be included in the list of health foods for kids. Ayurvedic herbs such as ashwagandha, mulethi, brahmi, shallaki and turmeric are great for kids’ development. Overall, these herbs support immunity, bone strength, brain development and overall growth.

Calcium:

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.

Antioxidants:

Antioxidants are compounds produced in your body or naturally found in some foods that scavenge or neutralize the effects of cell damage by potentially harmful molecules known as free radicals. Fortunately eating a diet rich in antioxidants or antioxidant rich foods help to fight oxidative stress and reduce the risk of many chronic diseases. Turmeric, Vitamin E, cocoa, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Selenium, Beta carotene, Lycopene, Lutein, Zeaxanthin, Manganese, Polyphenols show great antioxidant properties.

7 health foods for kids daily nutrition

heal foods for kids by Iyurved

Taking care of kid’s nutrition from early years itself is very important. This not only keeps their present active but also ensures a dependable and disease-free future. What are the benefits of eating nutritious food? Nutritious health foods for kids and healthy diet has many benefits for children: improves mental health, stabilizes energy, builds immunity and prepares the body against diseases. You can easily develop healthy eating habits in your children from their childhood. This can be the best gift you can give them for their better tomorrow. (Healthy eating for children?)

WHAT COMPRISES A NUTRITIOUS OR HEALTHY DIET FOR KIDS?

A nutritious diet plan must provide all the essential nutrients like carbohydrates, fats, proteins, vitamins, minerals and water in the required amounts. Requirements of essential nutrients vary with age, gender, physiological status and physical activity. (Why is balanced diet important for children?)

RECOMMENDED DIETARY ALLOWANCE FOR INDIAN KIDS AS PER NATIONAL INSTITUTE OF NUTRITION, HYDERABAD:

RDA for Macronutrients and Minerals
RDA for Vitamins
7 health foods for kids daily nutrition:
Protein:

Protein makes up building blocks of organs, muscles, skin and hormones. Our body needs protein to maintain and repair tissues. Meanwhile, children need it for proper growth in their early years too. Fish, poultry, nuts (almond, peanut, cashew, hazelnut), beans, are best choices. A balanced protein rich breakfast is always great for children to start their day. It helps them stay full for longer ideas and hence protein is a must for proper child nutrition. (How to add protein to your diet?)

Good fats:

Health foods for kids must limit fats that are high in saturated fat and avoid trans-fat. Nuts, avocado, seeds (such as pumpkin seeds, melon seeds, sunflower seeds) and few oils are the healthiest sources of unsaturated fat. It is good for eye, bones and mental health of child, helps to boost brain and nervous system development, and strengthen the immune system. Encourage your child to eat all these good fats that support kid’s nutrition. (Foods and remedies for cough?)

Calcium:

It is really important to get strong bones and teeth and we get chance to build them only once – throughout childhood and adolescence. Children who get enough amount of 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 predominately 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 contains calcium.

Carbohydrates:

Fibre, starches and sugar are very essential food for healthy diet that body turns into glucose to give energy to function. Carbs that take time to digest and have fibre in them are complex carbs which are found in naturally existing fruits, vegetables, almonds, cashews, hazelnut, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, melon seeds and whole grains. 

Vitamin and minerals:

Vitamins and minerals help us to grow, to form bones, muscles, for eyesight, for skin and organs and most importantly help us to fight against infections by building immunity. Deficiency of certain vitamins and minerals can lead to severe issues related to health. The best way to ensure that your child is getting enough vitamins and minerals for proper growth and development is to provide them with five food groups (fruit and vegetable, complex carbs, dairy, protein and fat).

Ayurvedic Herbs:

Ayurveda has the potential to not only correct imbalances in our children, but also to set them on an enduring path toward optimal health and well-being. Thus, ayurvedic herbs must be included in the list of health foods for kids. Ayurvedic herbs such as ashwagandha, mulethi, brahmi, shallaki and turmeric are great for kids development. Overall, these herbs support immunity, bone strength, brain development and overall growth.

Antioxidants:

Antioxidants are compounds produced in your body or naturally found in some foods that scavenge or neutralize the effects of cell damage by potentially harmful molecules known as free radicals. Fortunately eating a diet rich in antioxidants or antioxidant rich foods help to fight oxidative stress and reduce the risk of many chronic diseases. Turmeric, Vitamin E, cocoa, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Selenium, Beta carotene, Lycopene, Lutein, Zeaxanthin, Manganese, Polyphenols show great antioxidant properties.

Foods to avoid:

Refined sugar: Sugar causes inflammation in the body which results in weaker immunity. Sugar damages the protein in our body, resulting in ageing of organs, which further compromises immunity, growth and functioning. Greatest source of sugar in the average kid’s diet are sugary snacks and beverages like cookies, cakes, candies, fruit juice, soda, and sports drinks. Everything that the child picks up to eat today has strains of added sugar in some form or the other.

Preservatives: most of the packaged food companies are adding artificial preservatives to delay spoilage and contamination in foods.  artificial preservatives such as nitrates, benzoates, sulfites, sorbates, parabens, formaldehyde, BHT, BHA and several others can cause serious health hazards such as hypersensitivity, allergy, asthma, hyperactivity, neurological damage.

Refined oil: The high temperature involved in the refining process removes all the natural and beneficial substances from the oil, which is not good for the digestive as well as respiratory health and ultimately affects your immunity.

5 foods being the reason of weight gain & GROWTH in children

Everyone has probably heard the rhyme “chubby cheeks, dimple chin,” and the gist of it is that everyone loves chubby kids. One of the most difficult problems for any mother is ensuring that her children acquire weight in a healthy manner. However, parents are worried about their children getting obese in the face of the global pandemic, while many parents are still hunting reason of weight gain or weight-gain recommendations for their children such as weight gain baby food.

how to promote healthy weight gain in children?

Every parent should understand the difference between gaining weight and gaining a healthy weight. In today’s world, children are more likely to consume processed and refined foods that are readily available. However, they serve no nutritional purpose other than to fill their bodies with unhealthy empty calories. As a result, the children have a poor appetite and are unable to fulfil their body’s daily nutritional requirements. 

As children grow at a steady speed, they require special attention to support and encourage healthy development while also fulfilling their energy requirements. Nutrition for children follows the same principles as nutrition for adults. So, here are some of the things you can do to help your child acquire weight while also maintaining a healthy and active body.:

  • Provide nutrient-dense foods that are rich in essential fats, carbohydrates, proteins, fibre, vitamins, and minerals.
  • Reduce drinks at mealtimes to increase children’s consumption of nutritious foods (which being the reason of weight gain).
  • Offer four or five little meals rather than three large meals and encourage a few healthy snacks throughout the day.

Which food is good for weight gain in children?

Nuts:

Nuts like peanuts, almonds, cashew and hazelnuts contain healthy fats. They are also a great source of protein and dietary fibre, along with a pack of a number of vitamins and minerals. They are high in calories and hence nuts and nut butter is absolutely the right choices if you are looking for some foods that support active growth and healthy weight gain in kids. 

Seeds: 

Seeds like pumpkin, melon and sunflower are high in fat, mono and poly-unsaturated fats that add healthy calories for overall growth and weight gain. Vitamin E, antioxidants, magnesium, zinc, potassium, and vitamin K are all abundant in them. Pumpkin seeds solve dietary deficiencies, while sunflower and melon seeds boost metabolism and aids in digestion. Melon seeds are also a good source of zinc and it helps to boost our immunity, helps in digestion and overall growth and development.

Herbs:

Since time immemorial, herbs like ashwagandha, mulethi, turmeric, shallaki, and brahmi have been shown to aid in weight gain and boost brain, immune, and bone development. Ashwagandha and Mulethi aid digestion and nutrition absorption and encourage the growth of healthy bacteria in the intestine. Ashwagandha enhances bone mineral density, which in turn increases overall body mass. Brahmi and turmeric help to keep digestive issues at bay. Shallaki is rich in carbohydrates and calcium, thus helping in bone growth and improves appetite.

Antioxidants – Vitamin E and rosemary extract:

Antioxidants, such as vitamin E, help to keep cells healthy by fighting free radicals. Rosemary extract is high in iron, calcium, vitamins A, C, and B6, and is commonly used to treat digestive issues and a lack of appetite. Antioxidants can be found in a variety of foods, including vegetables, fruits, whole grains, nuts, seeds, and herbs and spices.

Millet

Jowar flour is a great source of protein, unsaturated fats and dietary fibre, packed with B Vitamins, minerals like iron, magnesium, calcium, zinc, potassium and phosphorus.  It also contains antioxidants. The high dietary fibre content eases digestion in kids and improves their appetite. Ragi is loaded with protein, calcium, fiber, vitamin B2, vitamin B6 and it is the food for kids to gain weight. With around 130 calories per ½ cup, it also strengthens the bones, teeth and aids digestion. Ragi can be given as ragi porridge, kheer or in the form of flat bread. (How does whole grains manage menstruation pain?)

Foods to avoid

Ayurvedic spread by Iyurved

Moreover, sugar damages the protein in our body, resulting in ageing of organs, which further compromises immunity, growth and functioning. Greatest source of sugar in the average kid’s diet are sugary snacks and beverages like cookies, cakes, candies, fruit juice, soda, and sports drinks. Everything that the child picks up to eat today has strains of added sugar in some form or the other.

5 foods to balance hormones in male child

Teenage comes with many physical and emotional changes in a kid’s life. Both girls and boys experience different kinds of changes. Like girls, boys also go through some major changes during puberty. Puberty is also known as adolescence. In boys puberty starts between 11- 14 years of age. This is the time when you can see the maximum amount of growth in weight and height in kids. There are several changes that may occur at the same time. Your kids may grow some inches suddenly which was followed by a very slow growth from the past few months. Each boy goes through these changes at their own pace. It is important to understand that these changes will be seen differently in each teen. All these physical maturations are result of hormonal changes in kid’s body. Taking care of diet can help to balance hormones in a male child or boy.

Physical changes
Body size

Body size of boys starts increasing. You may observe that legs, arms, hands, feet are growing faster than the rest of the body. This sometimes makes a teen feel awkward but, frequent growth spurts are absolutely common in boys as they enters puberty phase.

Breast growth

The upper body muscles begin to develop. Some boys may experience swelling in the breast area. The reason for this is only hormonal changes. It is a temporary condition which is common in teenage boys. Encourage him to start some regular exercises. It will help in growth.

Voice change

As a boy enters puberty phase, his voice may change. If you feel that your boy’s voice is cracking, he is going through the natural effects of male puberty. His voice will become deeper in some days.

Hair growth

Boys get hair growth around genital area. They will also start having hairs on face (Beard and mustache), under their arms, and on legs. Boys generally love this change as they considered facial hairs as sign of manhood.

Acne

The most common issue is Acne. Almost all teenagers weather boys or girls face break out with pimples from time to time. It is caused as glands in the skin start producing natural oils called sebum. This happens because of increase in puberty hormones in male or boys. This extra sebum clog the skin pores which results in acne.  

Body odor

It is considered as one of the earliest sign of puberty. Boys begin to sweat profusely because of hormonal changes. Sweat itself has no smell. It is just odorless salty water. But the sweat glands located under the arms in the groin produce sebum which get mixed with sweat and make the kids stink.

testicles and scrotum

As the body grows, some changes can be seen in their testicles and scrotum too. It is a natural process just as girls get their periods. The body is getting ready for the process of reproduction.

Emotional Changes
Anxiety

It is natural for a kid to feel anxiety or excitement about the changes that he is experiencing. These changes may push him to worry or wonder if this is normal. Though on having mustache and muscles he feels happy as these are the signs of becoming a man.

Reserved

It is now past that your son shares all the things that happened during the day with you. As he enters puberty phase you find him quite reserved. You may often hear “Nothing” as an answer to most of your questions. He may not like to watch TV and loves to stay in his room only. But, you need to make your relationship stronger at this point of time. Try to have regular talks with him.

Mood swings:

He may become moody at times. It is absolutely normal. The reason behind these mood swings are only change in hormones in male or boys that affects the brain too. Let him handle these mood swings. But, never leave them alone. Always offer or ask if they need help.

Romantic Interest:

Your kid can tell you that he likes someone, or develop a crush at school. These romantic interests can bring lots of ups and downs in your kid’s life. These feelings will lead the kids to develop a deeper capacity to care. But, you have to know every minor development which is happening in kid’s life as everything is new for them and the chances of getting misled are high.

Important nutrients for teenagers
Protein

Adolescent needs a balanced meal with adequate amounts of protein during puberty as protein helps in growth and repair of muscles and tissues. It also generates enzymes and hormones in male. Protein rich diets help them to feel energetic throughout the day. Nuts, seeds, chicken, eggs, fish and cheese are a few high protein foods. (Top nuts and seeds for protein)

Carbohydrates

They are the biggest source of energy for teenagers. Almost 60% of energy (calories) for the day must come from carbohydrate foods. They provide instant energy and keep the kids on their toes. Fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, whole grains and sugar are rich in carbohydrates. (Food for immunity?)

Dietary Fat

Fat should make up no more than 30% of the diet. A teenager who indulges in a fat-heavy diet is going to put on weight, even if he or she is active. Dietary fat contains varying proportions of three types:

  • Monounsaturated fat is the healthiest kind of fat and is found in olives, olive oil, peanuts, peanut, peanut butter, cashews, walnuts, walnut oil and canola oil.
  • Polyunsaturated fat is found in corn oil, safflower oil, sunflower oil, soybean oil, cottonseed oil, and sesame-seed oil.
  • Saturated fat is the most cholesterol laden of the three and is found in meat and dairy products like beef, pork, lamb, butter, cheese, cream, egg yolks, coconut oil, and palm oil. (Natural sources of saturated fats?)
Iron

Iron is essential for teens as they go through rapid growth spurts. Both girls and boys need it, especially for girls as they lose more of it once menstruation starts. To provide their body with sufficient amount of mineral teenage male may need to consume more iron. Foods rich in iron such as meat, fish, poultry, green leafy vegetables, nuts and seeds should be given to teenagers on a daily basis.(How iron deficiency affects children?)

Calcium and Vitamin D

Adolescent needs calcium to build strong bones which can help them later in life. Deficiency of calcium can increase the risk of developing osteoporosis (a condition in which bones become weak and can easily break). Consumption of vitamin D is equally important as it helps in absorption of calcium. Calcium rich foods include low-fat milk, other dairy foods and dark green vegetables, along with fortified foods like fortified juice and cereal. (Why calcium and vitamin D are important?)

Vitamins: Vitamins are water-soluble or fat-soluble. Leafy vegetables, animal products, nuts & seeds, vegetable oils, dairy foods are rich in fat-soluble vitamins (vitamin A, D, E and K ). Whereas nuts & seeds, fruits, vegetables, grains, milk and dairy foods are high in water-soluble vitamins (vitamin C, the B vitamins). (What foods have which vitamins?

Minerals: Minerals include calcium, iron, sodium, phosphorus, magnesium, chloride and Sulphur are found in nuts, seeds, shellfish, chicken, eggs, beans, cocoa, avocados, berries, yogurt and cheese. (Why calcium?)

Hormone balancing foods
Manjishtha:

Manjishtha is a powerful blood cleanser. It detoxes and purifies the blood. Apart from that, it aids in the removal of blood flow obstructions and promotes great blood circulation. This aids in the treatment of acne. This herb also helps to lift your spirits, leaving you peaceful and relaxed. It elevates your mood by increasing Dopamine levels in your blood (a neurotransmitter that regulates brain activity). Manjishtha’s anti-stress and nootropic properties aid to keep your mind at ease.

10 AMAZING HEALTH BENEFITS OF BOTTLE GOURD/ LAUKI

Right since our childhood, we have always heard that green vegetables are the healthiest and it is important to consume them every day. Amongst them, bottle gourd/lauki is one and it’s known for its nutritional powerhouse and health benefits. However, when it comes to babies and children, we always think twice before giving them any food. There are many parents who wonder if they may give their newborn bottle gourd or lauki. The answer is yes, you can totally give them. So, let’s look into the nutritional information and the amazing health benefits of bottle gourd and its juice for babies and toddlers.

WHEN CAN I GIVE MY BABY BOTTLE GOURD FOR THE FIRST TIME?

Bottle gourd is a simple to digest vegetable that can be given to kids as young as six months old. When you first start, use steamed bottle gourd puree. Begin with 1 tablespoon of bottle gourd puree and progressively increase the amount as the baby grows. Of all the vegetables, this is perhaps the least reactive. 

As it’s easily digestible, it is preferred for babies, the elderly, and the sick. The majority of the bottle gourd is water, with the rest containing important vitamins and minerals.

Bottle gourd – Nutritional facts

Bottle gourd contains 15 calories per 100 g with 96 percent water content. It is high in dietary fibre, vitamin C, riboflavin, zinc, thiamine, iron, magnesium, and manganese, and low in saturated fat and cholesterol. (Food with B vitamins and why do you need them?)

Nutritional information of bottle gourd
Nutritional information of Bottle gourd / Lauki

10 Health benefits of bottle gourd for babies and toddlers:

Here are proven health benefits of bottle gourd  for babies and toddlers:

1. Great source of vitamins and minerals

Bottle gourd is an excellent source of vitamins and minerals such as vitamin C, vitamin B, vitamin A, vitamin E and iron, folate which are important for a child’s growth and development. Parents must ensure that their children, especially infants, have a well-balanced diet to avoid nutritional deficiencies. Therefore, feeding your baby bottle gourd is an excellent option to start with. 

2. Treats constipation and diarrhea

Bottle gourd acts as a natural laxative and helps to alleviate constipation and diarrhea in babies. This is due to the vegetable’s high water and fibre content, which aids in the cleaning of the digestive tract and facilitates bowel movement. (Home remedies and foods for constipation in kids)

3. Reduces acidity in babies

The bottle gourd has long been used to treat stomach ulcers. When a baby has indigestion, they can develop acidity. In most cases, indigestion causes the stomach to create more acid than is required, resulting in acidity. Bottle gourd can help to decrease this.

4. perfect thirst quencher

It is a great thirst quencher for kids because it contains roughly 96 percent water. It also prevents fatigue and keeps the body cool and rejuvenated in summers by lowering the body’s heat. ( What is the right time to introduce water for baby?)

5.Excellent deworming food for babies

Bottle gourd seeds are one of the traditional remedies for worms in the intestine. Bottle gourd seeds can be boiled, ground into a paste, and given to babies (not more than 2 teaspoons). (Deworming foods for kids)

6. Good for urinary infection

Infections of the urinary tract are fairly prevalent in babies. One of the causes for this is because the baby’s body does not have enough water. Infections can occur if there isn’t enough water to clear the bacteria out of the urinary tract. Urinary tract infections can be considerably reduced by feeding your baby bottle gourd on a regular basis.

7.Protects liver

Infants are more likely to develop liver illnesses such as jaundice or hepatitis. Feeding bottle gourd which is rich in vitamin C to your babies helps to remove toxins and also protects the kidneys and liver from oxidative damage.

8. Good for heart health

Bottle gourd/lauki has a store of essential minerals and trace elements that help in maintaining good heart health in babies as well as adults. Its low sodium and high potassium content help to lower cholesterol levels, control blood pressure and promote adequate blood flow to the heart.

9. Great stress reliever 

One of the health benefits of bottle gourd is its inherent capacity to relieve stress. Bottle gourd has a significant quantity of choline, a neurotransmitter that aids in the improvement of brain functioning and the prevention of stress, depression, and other mental illnesses. This has a relaxing impact on both children and adults.

10. Promotes skin health

The high antioxidant – Vitamin C in bottle gourd helps to treat skin allergies and rashes in kids and create a youthful glow. Not only does including this vegetable in your diet help but putting its juice to your face offers you an instant, healthy glow. (What are the causes for acne in kids and how to treat them?)

Health benefits of bottle gourd juice for babies and toddlers:

Not just the vegetable but also its juice offers numerous health benefits. Bottle gourd meaning in hindi – lauki is quite popular for its juice.  Let’s look into the benefits of lauki juice.

  1. The benefits of lauki juice are not confined to the body and skin; it is also beneficial to the hair. Premature hair greying in children is most common these days and is mainly due to nutritional deficiencies. Early in the morning, drinking a glass of bottle gourd juice can help prevent the formation of grey hair. ( Reason for hair fall in kids)
  2. Sesame oil mixed with the juice is an excellent remedy for insomnia. It’s a good idea to massage the scalp every night with this preparation. (not recommended for babies below 1 year) 
  3. If your kids suffer from mental illness, epilepsy or stomach acidity or indigestion as well as mouth ulcers then bottle gourd juice is a great remedy.
  4. The bitter form of bottle gourd is used as a cardiac tonic, a poison antidote, and a tonic for bronchitis, cough, asthma, and liver illnesses. You can give a teaspoon of this juice to your babies. 
  5. A glass of bottle gourd juice mixed with a pinch of salt can help minimize sodium loss from the body (salt can be avoided for babies below 1 year of age).
  6. Bottle gourd juice is an alkaline mix that helps to reduce the burning feeling in the urinary tract.
  7. Benefits of lauki juice, extracted from leaves is also proven medicine for jaundice.

Steps to prepare bottle gourd/ lauki juice:

Following are the steps for making lauki juice: (Summer drinks for kids)

  • Cut off a piece of the end and taste it first, then proceed. Using a lauki that has a bitter flavour is not recommended.
  • Then, peel off the entire skin from the lauki, and cut it into little pieces. Mix them in a blender.
  • Black pepper and salt can be added to suit your tastebuds. You can also increase the flavour by adding mint leaves, ginger to your juice. ( Avoid pepper and salt for children below 1 year of age)
  • You can also add a few drops of lemon or amla to the lauki juice to enhance its flavour and antioxidant content.
  • Combining other veggies with lauki juice is not recommended because it may have a detrimental impact on your health.

Before giving your infant bottle gourd, there are several precautions to follow:

  • Baby’s age:  When a baby is about 6 months old, bottle gourd can be introduced to his or her diet. It is critical to introduce semi-solid foods during this stage for the baby’s health and development.
  • How to offer bottle gourd to your baby: Peeling the hard outer covering, cutting it into little pieces, and heating them is one of the best ways to provide bottle gourd to your baby. The vitamins in it are washed out during the boiling process, so don’t boil it. Steaming is a better option.
  • How much bottle gourd to feed: The amount of bottle gourd to use is determined by the baby’s age. When the baby is at the age of six months, only a couple of tablespoons are required. As the infant grows, you can increase the amount of bottle gourd.

More and more parents throughout the world are adopting bottle gourd into their baby’s diets as they learn about the health benefits of bottle gourd. Bottle gourd, on the other hand, should not be consumed uncooked because it might be detrimental to the stomach and intestines. (7 foods to boost immunity in kids)

In conclusion, bottle gourd is beneficial to both the physical and mental health of your children. It will make a world of difference if you incorporate it into the baby’s weekly menu.

4 essential vitamins to prevent teeth grinding in kids

Teeth grinding in kids

Isn’t bliss to hear the sounds of smooth breathing and lovely dreams when you gaze in on your sleeping child? But, some parents get to hear the harsher noises of clenching and teeth grinding in kids, which is known as bruxism.

What is teetH grinding in kids?

Teeth grinding in kids, also known as bruxism is more common. This usually occurs in children before the age of five. It’s normally nothing to be concerned about, and most kids outgrow it by the age of six. Teething or poor tooth alignment are the most common causes of teeth grinding in kids. However, some children only grind their teeth during the day, but teeth grinding when sleeping is more common. (Impact of sleep disorders in kids brain development)

Causes of teeth grinding in kids

The cause of bruxism or teeth grinding in kids isn’t always clear to experts. However, some of the reasons include:  

  • Poor teeth alignment 
  • To ease the discomfort caused. Often, it’s a reaction to pain, such as an earache or teething, that causes them to do it. 
  • Another cause is stress, which usually manifests as nervous tension or anger. For example, a child may be concerned about a school test or a change in routine. Even arguing with parents and siblings can be stressful enough to cause jaw clenching or teeth grinding when sleeping. (Ashwagandha reduces stress and anxiety and promotes better sleep) 

Are there any signs and symptoms to identify if your child grinds teeth?

Most parents may usually hear a lot of sounds of teeth grinding in kids, especially if it happens late at night. Apart from this, general symptoms of teeth grinding in kids include:

  • Frequent complaints of headaches
  • Sore jaw
  • Injured teeth and gums (Oral health of kids : Tooth decay)
  • Tightening or clenching of the jaw muscles
  • Complaining of jaw muscle ache
  • Sensitivity to hot and cold foods and beverages

In some cases, even the teeth and tooth enamel may be worn away. As a result, if the problem is not addressed, children may experience future dental difficulties.

Effects of teeth grinding in kids

Many cases of teeth grinding in kids go unnoticed and have no negative consequences, while others result in headaches or earaches. Chronic tooth grinding can cause fracturing, loosening, or loss of teeth in some kids. Teeth can be worn down to roots as a result of constant grinding. Bridges, crowns, root canals, implants, partial dentures, and even complete dentures may be required when these events occur. 

Clenching and teeth grinding when sleeping can also damage teeth, chip teeth, increase temperature sensitivity and create significant facial discomfort and jaw disorders like temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder. It might also change the appearance of the face.

How to prevent teeth grinding in kids?

Bruxism is a common reaction among children as they grow and develop. These incidents are unavoidable. Stress-related teeth grinding can, however, be avoided in both children and adults. The first step in avoiding teeth grinding when sleeping is to establish a relaxing nighttime routine. The following are some tips to help your child sleep better at night.

  • Before going to bed, turn off the television and other electronic devices.
  • Allow them to listen to soothing music.
  • Give them a warm bath or shower.
  • Allow them to read or listen to what you’re reading.

Stress management is important. Discuss your child’s feelings on a daily basis. They need help coping with stress. Your child’s stress can be relieved by talking to a family member, or a therapist about what’s bothering him or her. And if possible, try to eliminate your child’s sources of stress. (Anger management in kids)

Foods to AVOID FOR teeth GRINDING IN KIDS

You might probably be familiar with your child facing sore jaw muscles as a result of teeth grinding. Chewing foods that further exhaust those muscles can cause them to become even more tired and achy.

It’s best to avoid foods that promote jaw clenching and necessitate a lot of chewing. You should also avoid foods that damage the teeth as part of the bruxism diet because weakened teeth is another common symptom of bruxism.

Some of the most important foods to avoid if you have bruxism are:

  • Chewing gums
  • Chewy candies
  • Hard candy
  • Crunchy foods 
  • Popcorn
  • Chewy food like steaks
  • Hard foods like nuts

Best diet TO PREVENT teeth grinding

A diet consisting of mostly soft foods will help minimize the tension on your kid’s jaw joint and the surrounding muscles. This could involve the following:

  • Apple puree
  • Mashed potatoes
  • Scrambled eggs
  • Yogurt
  • Pasta

You might also improve your bruxism diet by including more anti-inflammatory foods. Because bruxism and TMJ are linked to inflammation, these foods may help alleviate symptoms. 

  • Fatty fish, salmon
  • Green leafy vegetables
  • Berries like strawberries and bluberries

Vitamins that help TO PREVENT teeth grinding

It is ideal to acquire all of the vitamins and nutrients from a balanced diet. Here are a few vitamins and minerals that might help teeth grinding in kids.  Supplement your child’s regular regimen with these vitamins and minerals.

1) Magnesium

Magnesium relaxes the neurological system and can aid in the relaxation of muscles in the jaw. Clenching and teeth grinding when sleeping is reduced as a result. Stress is regarded to be one of the most common causes of bruxism, and low magnesium levels are linked to high stress levels. The foods that are rich in magnesium include: 

  • Nuts such as almonds, cashew, peanut
  • Seeds such as pumpkin , flax and chia 
  • Whole grains like wheat, oats, barley, buckwheat and quinoa
  • Spinach
  • Banana
  • Vegetables like carrot, potatoes, broccoli, avocado
  • Milk
  • Fatty fish
2) Calcium

Deficiency in calcium, which causes bone deterioration, has been related to teeth grinding and teeth clenching. Make sure your child receives adequate calcium, too. Calcium-rich food sources include: 

  • Milk and milk products
  • Moringa
  • Ragi
  • Vegetables such as cabbage, broccoli, lady’s finger
  • Seeds such as sesame and chia 
  • Almonds 
  • Lotus seeds or makhana
  • Amaranth
3) Vitamin B and vitamin C

Dietary supplements of vitamins B and C have been linked to better sleep quality and deeper sleep. Sleep bruxism, which is categorized as a sleep-related movement problem, is significantly helped by these vitamins. (Foods with B vitamins)

Dietary sources of vitamin B include: 

  • Whole grain cereals
  • Nuts and seeds
  • Beans
  • Green leafy vegetables
  • Milk and milk products
  • Egg
  • Meat
  • Fruits

Dietary sources of vitamin C include citrus fruits, papaya, broccoli, potatoes, cabbage, cauliflower. 

Changing your child’s diet all at once may be challenging, so consider making one or two changes at a time. In this way, you will be able to determine which meals have an impact on your bruxism symptoms.

Living with teeth grinding

Clenching or teeth grinding in kids is not harmful. The majority of kids will outgrow it. However, it might induce unpleasant symptoms that can make daily life difficult. You can take efforts to alleviate and prevent discomfort. The following are some home care suggestions:

  • Use  wet heat or ice for sore jaw muscles 
  • Massage the neck, shoulders, and face muscles.
  • Avoid foods that are hard, dense, or chewy, such as nuts, bagels, or steak.
  • Avoid chewing gum 
  • Stretching activities for physical rehabilitation can be learned.
  • Relax the  facial muscles.
  • Reduce the stress levels.
  • Practice relaxation techniques.

If self-care measures don’t work after a few weeks and your child is still having problems, consult your family doctor.

8 Common Nutritional Deficiencies in Children

nutritional deficiencies in children

Have you ever wondered why your child gets sick or has health difficulties despite having a full plate of food? Do you think that plate provides all the essential nutrients that the child requires? Nowadays, malnutrition is most prevalent and is found to be associated with common nutritional deficiencies in children.

Most parents make the mistake of believing that just because their child eats three meals a day means he or she is getting all of the nutrients needed for growth and development. But, a well-balanced meal consisting of all the important vitamins and minerals is all that the child needs. So, let’s understand what is nutritional deficiencies, symptoms, nutritional deficiencies diseases and foods that help to overcome them. 

 What are nutritional deficiencies?

The child’s body needs a sufficient amount of vitamins and minerals to grow properly and be able to fight and avoid diseases. We refer to these nutrients as micronutrients.

While some are made naturally by the body, the majority come from the foods your children consume. Malnutrition, also known as nutrient deficiency, occurs when your child’s body does not get or is unable to absorb the necessary amount of nutrients. 

Signs and symptoms of nutritional deficiencies in children

Nutritional deficiencies cause health-related problems which can be difficult to detect while your child is young but become more apparent as they develop. Immune deficiency, stunted bone development, delayed brain growth, weariness, digestive troubles, and even early dementia are few common nutritional deficiencies symptoms.

Apart from these common symptoms, nutritional deficiencies diseases also exhibit symptoms such as :

  • Lethargy
  • Loss of attention
  • Dry skin/hair
  • Depression/ Anxiety
  • Delayed speech
  • Weight loss
  • Hyperactivity
  • Frequent cold or flu

8 Common nutritional deficiencies in children

Here is a list of some common nutritional deficiencies in children, their symptoms and dietary sources:

1.Calcium deficiency

Every cell in your body requires calcium to function properly. Calcium helps to mineralize bones and teeth, which is especially important during periods of rapid growth. Calcium is also a signalling molecule, so a deficiency can cause problems with your child’s heart, nerves, and muscles.

You should never take more calcium than you need. Calcium levels in your blood are strictly controlled, therefore any excess is stored in your bones as calcium phosphate. As a result, your bones will release calcium if you don’t get enough of it from the diet.

HeALTH CONCERNS caused due to calcium deficiency

In many cases, a calcium deficiency is not accompanied by symptoms. However, rickets in children and osteoporosis in the elderly are two prevalent forms of calcium deficiency that cause weaker and more fragile bones.

Dietary sources of calcium

Here are some of the calcium-rich foods that you should include in the diet: 

  • Milk and dairy products like cheese and yogurt
  • Moringa
  • Ragi (8 amazing benefits of Ragi)
  • Vegetables like cabbage, mustard, broccoli, lady’s finger
  • Seeds like poppy, chia and sesame
  • Almonds
  • Makhana/ Lotus seeds
  • Amaranth
2.Iron deficiency

Iron deficiency is one of the most common nutritional deficiencies in children. However, it is even more common in picky eaters and toddlers who have weaned from breast milk. (Iron deficiency in children)

Iron is a vital mineral that is found in abundance in red blood cells. Also, iron attaches to haemoglobin and aids oxygen transport between blood cells. It also aids in the production of RBCs.

There are two types of dietary iron – Heme and Non- heme iron. Heme iron is found in animal sources such as red meat and is easily absorbed in the body. Non-heme iron can be present in plant and animal foods, but it is difficult to absorb.

Vegetarians and vegans mostly consume plant sources having non-heme iron which is less absorbed. Hence they are more likely to develop iron deficiency. 

HeALTH CONCERNS caused due to iron deficiency

Anemia is the most common nutritional deficiency in children. The common symptoms of anemia include pale skin, fatigue, weakness and tiredness, poor appetite, craving for strange things like ice, dirt and paint, slower growth and development, behavioural issues, frequent infection.

Dietary sources of iron

The best sources of iron both heme and non-heme are listed below:

Heme iron sources:
  • Red meat
  • Shellfish
  • Organ meat
  • Sardines
Non-heme iron sources:
  • Beans
  • Green leafy vegetables like broccoli, spinach, kale
  • Seeds like pumpkin, sesame, flax and hemp
  • Dried fruits like raisins, prunes and apricot
  • Fruits like apple, pear and pomegranate 
  • Legumes
3.Vitamin D deficiency

Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin that acts in the body like a steroid hormone and is produced on exposure to sunlight. It aids iron, magnesium, zinc, and phosphate absorption. It also aids calcium absorption and helps in the formation of strong bones and teeth. Not just bones and teeth, vitamin D also builds immunity in the body and fights off attacking viruses and bacteria. (Vitamin D and calcium for building strong bones in kids)

HeALTH CONCERNS caused due to Vitamin D deficiency 

The deficiency of vitamin D prevents the absorption of calcium in the body. Calcium deficiency causes disorders, such as hypocalcemia and hypophosphatemia (rickets), as well as the weakening of bones, certain types of malignancies and lowered immunity. It may also cause growth delay, bone loss and there is an increased risk of fractures. 

Dietary sources of Vitamin D

Sunlight is the natural source of Vitamin D. However, other dietary sources of vitamin D are:

  • Cod liver oil
  • Fatty fish such as salmon, mackerel, sardines
  • Egg yolk
  • Banana 
  • Milk and milk products
  • Fortified cereals
  • Mushroom
  • Ragi
4.Vitamin A deficiency

Vitamin A is a fat-soluble vitamin that is important. It aids in the formation and maintenance of healthy skin, teeth, bones, and cell membranes, as well. Also, it creates eye pigments, which are essential for vision. For Vitamin A to travel to the required parts of the body, like the retina at the back of the eye, it has to partner with another mineral- Zinc.

Dietary vitamin A comes in two forms:

  • Preformed vitamin A  (Retinol): It is derived from animal sources.
  • Pro-vitamin A (Carotenoid): It is obtained from plant sources.

HeALTH CONCERNS caused due to Vitamin A deficiency

A lack of vitamin A or vitamin A deficiency can cause both acute and chronic eye damage, leading to blindness. Vitamin A deficiency can also weaken the immune system and increase mortality, especially in children and women who are pregnant or lactating.

Dietary sources of Vitamin A

The dietary sources of vitamin A are:

  • Organ meat
  • Fish liver oil
  • Sweet potatoes
  • Carrot
  • Green leafy vegetables

Orange-coloured fruits and vegetables like carrots, mangoes, apricot, and sweet potatoes are rich in vitamin A, hence helps to protect your kid from any eye disease.

5.Vitamin B9-Folate deficiency

Vitamin B9, also known as folic acid or folate, is an essential component for the growth and development of the human body. Folate aids in the formation of DNA and RNA, as well as protein metabolism. Dietary folate is also necessary for the production of healthy red blood cells. And it is especially important in times of fast growth, such as during pregnancy and the development of the foetus.

HeALTH CONCERNS caused due to Vitamin B9-Folate deficiency

Folate deficiency in children and babies can cause brain and spinal cord underdevelopment, growth issues, anaemia, and congenital defects. (7 brain-boosting foods for your child) 

Dietary sources of Vitamin B9-Folate

The sources of Vitamin B9 include:

  • Green leafy veggies
  • Fresh fruits
  • Nuts
  • Beans
  • Fortified cereals and bread
  • Seafood
  • Eggs 
  • Peanuts
6.Vitamin B12 – Cobalamin deficiency

Cobalamin is important for the production of blood cells and to sustain healthy nerve cells in the body. However, vegetarians and vegans may not obtain enough vitamin B12 in their meals and may need to take a B12 supplement. (Foods with B vitamins and their importance)

HeALTH CONCERNS caused due to Vitamin B12 – Cobalamin deficiency

A vitamin B12 deficiency causes megaloblastic anemia. The diseases caused by nutritional deficiencies of Vitamin B12 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 show negative effects on the nervous system and nutritional deficiencies symptoms such as confusion, depression and dementia. 

Dietary sources of Vitamin B12 – Cobalamin

The sources of Vitamin B12 include:

  • Dairy products
  • Fish
  • Meat
  • Beef liver
  • Fortified cereals
  • Egg
7.Zinc deficiency

Zinc is an important mineral for healthy growth, digestion, sex hormone development, and immunity in children. A deficit can have an adverse effect on your child’s hair, skin, and nails, as well as his or her cognitive function and height.

HeALTH CONCERNS caused due to zinc deficiency 

Loss of appetite and decreased growth and development in babies and children are early signs of zinc deficiency. They may be angry and sluggish. The immune system of the body may be compromised, causing wounds to heal more slowly and incompletely.

Dietary sources of zinc

The sources of zinc include:

8.Magnesium deficiency

Magnesium is an important mineral in the human body. It’s not only important for bone and tooth structure but it’s also involved in over 300 enzyme processes.

HeALTH CONCERNS caused due to magnesium deficiency

The diseases caused by nutritional deficiencies of magnesium include type 2 diabetes, metabolic syndrome, heart disease, and osteoporosis. Abnormal heart rhythm, muscular cramps, restless leg syndrome, tiredness, and headaches are the most common magnesium – nutritional deficiencies symptoms. (How magnesium can help to balance hormones in teenagers?)

Dietary sources of magnesium

The sources of magnesium include:

  • Whole grains
  • Nuts
  • Dark chocolate
  • Green leafy vegetables

Almost every vitamin can be lacking in some way. However, the aforementioned flaws are by far the most prevalent. Children, young women, the elderly, vegetarians, and vegans appear to be the most vulnerable to a variety of deficits.

Eating a well-balanced diet rich in full, nutrient-dense foods is the greatest approach to avoid deficiencies. Supplements, on the other hand, maybe essential for people who cannot get enough from their food alone.

Set the mood

Start connecting with the baby by singing a lullaby. Dim the lights and make the room warm. You can turn on some soft calming music too while massaging. Keep talking to the baby. It will make a lovely bond and understanding between you and baby.

Surface

The surface on which you are placing the baby for massage has to be comfortable. It should be flat. This can be your bed or floor. (Never leave the baby alone or unattended). Put a towel or two and place the baby carefully over it.

Undressing baby

Undress the baby and remove the diaper. Left the baby naked for some time. Let the body get direct air. Babies often get diaper rash or heat rash. This airtime is beneficial for their skin and especially for bums.

Gentle touch

Newborn’s skin is very soft. You cannot rub it. Give a soft handed gentle massage. It should be as smoothing as your baby’s skin. The process should be calming and relaxing for your baby. You can use firm strokes for toddlers but for infants strokes should be soft and gentle.

Hygiene

Use a clean towel or clothes for the baby every time you give a massage. Wash your hand properly before picking up the baby for massage. If you have a midwife (Dai), do insist that she clean up herself thoroughly before handling the baby as she visits several houses and can easily carry germs that may cause infection.

What to avoid?

  • Avoid Massaging face of the baby. He/she is too small and the possibility of dripping oil into eyes or mouth is non-avoidable.
  • Baby’s soft spot on the head still needs time to close. So avoid massaging on the head.
  • Never use oils for baby massage with artificial fragrance and paraben. Avoid harsh Ingredients.
  • 5-10 minutes massage would be enough for infants. Give a soft and gentle massage to your little one.
  • If the baby is crying, falling asleep stops the massage.
  • Hold the baby carefully after massage. Massage oil makes the grip slippery.

Best oil for baby massage

Coconut oil

As coconut oil contains lauric acid and other essential fatty acids too, it possesses antimicrobial, antifungal and antiviral properties. It helps to nourish the baby’s skin and at the same time protect it from any kind of skin infections too. It improves the moisture and prevents skin dryness. Baby’s skin is quite sensitive. Rashes caused by diapers and heat can also be treated with the help of coconut oil. Since coconut oil has soothing and hydrating properties, it reduces the inflammation thus giving relief from itching and irritation. It is one of the best oils which can provide maximum benefit of massage to babies. (Benefits of coconut oil)

Mustard oil

Mustard oil has been used by mothers to massage babies from ages. It has antifungal and antibacterial properties that makes it the best choice for baby massage. Baby’s skin is very sensitive and is more prone to skin infections. Mustard oil protects it from any kind of fungal infections. It has a strong and pungent smell which helps to keep insects and mosquitoes away from babies. Mustard oil is very popular in cold regions because it is very effective to keep the body warm by retaining heat. Benefit of massage from mustard oil are very high during winters.

Olive oil

Olive oil contains Vitamin E and Vitamin K. It is also loaded with antioxidants which can help to prevent skin inflammation. It can be used to massage the baby in any season. Olive oil acts as a great moisturizer and also improves skin tone. As it is loaded with healthy fats, oleic acids and squalene, it has a regenerative effect on skin tissues. Olive oil effectively treats diaper rash. Take two tbsp. of olive oil and 1 tbsp. of water, mix well and give a gentle massage to the baby’s bum.  

Almond oil

Almond oil is among one of the top choices by parents for using it to massage their babies. It is enriched with vitamin A, vitamin E, fatty acids and with some minerals too.

8 Amazing Health Benefits of Ragi: A super food

health benefits of Ragi

You must have heard about the health benefits of Ragi from elders. Ragi, an ultimate superfood is also known as finger millet or nachni. In many parts of South India, ragi is a common staple food item.

Since ancient times, Ragi has been overshadowed by other cereal crops such as rice and wheat in India’s food and nutrition landscape despite being a highly prized healthy grain in ancient agricultural systems dating back over 2000 years. Fortunately, Ragi has made a huge comeback in the last three to four decades because of the extensive research and the UN FAO’s push to include millets in the daily diet to combat malnutrition and a variety of other prevalent diseases. 

Since Ragi is high in protein, calcium, iron and amino acids, it is a “Super food”. It is the most commonly used millet for making porridges for babies and infants. Let’s take a closer look at the health benefits of Ragi.

Health benefits of Ragi:

The benefits of Ragi for health are highlighted below:

Great source of protein and fiber: 

100 grams of Whole Ragi Flour gives 7.29 grams of protein and 16.56 grams of fiber. That is why, it serves as an excellent source of protein for vegetarians. Due to its high fiber content, it prevents overeating and keeps you full for a longer time, which aids in weight loss. The insoluble fiber present in Ragi helps in easy movement of foods in the stomach and adds water into the stool, hence aiding easy digestion and relieving constipation. (Foods for constipation in kids)

Calcium rich – promotes healthy bones and teeth:

When compared to other grains, ragi flour is one of the greatest non-dairy calcium sources. Calcium is essential for building strong bones and teeth, as well as for the prevention of a bone-weakening condition called osteoporosis. The sprouting process can increase the calcium content in Ragi by 20 percent. In addition, sprouting reduces the anti-nutritional factors and helps in better absorption of calcium. Hence, nothing beats Ragi when it comes to promoting bone growth in children and adults. (Benefits of calcium in kids)

Improves Red blood cells production – PreventS Anemia:

Naturally rich in iron, ragi benefits those with low hemoglobin levels. Also,the vitamin B1 in it helps in the synthesis of red blood cells and generates ATP, which is used by our bodies for energy. Ragi, when sprouted, has significant levels of vitamin C, which improves iron absorption. (Foods rich in iron)

Adds great benefit for diabetes:

It is the major benefit of ragi for health. Its higher fibre content lessens the cravings for food. When compared to wheat flour, ragi flour produces a far lower spike in sugar levels. Moreover, ragi is high in magnesium, which helps to improve insulin sensitivity by reducing insulin resistance. When our magnesium levels are too low, the pancreas does not produce enough insulin to keep our blood sugar under control.

gluten-free:

Ragi is a must-have for anyone on a gluten-free diet or suffering from celiac disease. For chapatis, dosas and some sweets, ragi can readily replace wheat because it is gluten-free. (A guide to a Gluten free diet for kids)

Rich in Antioxidants:

Other health benefits of ragi include its antioxidant property. Ragi is rich in antioxidants which prevents oxidation and fights against infections. Also, being a  rich source of amino acids, it aids the body’s natural ability to relax.You can efficiently combat depression, headaches and insomnia, as well as anxiety and stress, by consuming ragi. (Why do we need antioxidants)

great pick for the little ones and new moms:

The health benefits of ragi makes it a great choice for infants and new moms. As well as aiding with their digestion, it also strengthens their bones and promotes their overall growth. Ragi is great for stimulating milk production and balancing hormonal processes in pregnant women and young moms due to its high iron and calcium content.

Promotes healthy skin:

Ragi is a miracle worker when it comes to keeping youthful skin. As a result of the essential amino acids Methionine and Lysine and vitamins such as Vitamin B3, the skin tissues are less susceptible to wrinkles and aging.

Can ragi be given to your babies?

Because of the benefits of ragi for health, it is the best weaning food for babies after the age of six months. To be clear, it should not be your baby’s first food. Steamed and mashed veggies such as potatoes, apples, etc. should be the first thing on your menu to get started. You can make Ragi malt at home and it is ideal for your child.

How to get the benefits of ragi malt for your baby at home?

The benefits of ragi malt has created interest for a lot of parents in learning how to make ragi malt at home. You can prepare ragi malt for babies in one of two ways. 

  • Traditionally, ragi grains are milked and dried before being ground into a thin powder. This method is time-consuming and tedious.
  • The alternative option is to powder the whole ragi. It is always a good idea to sprout the ragi and prepare a malt. Iron, calcium, vitamins, and minerals are all more abundant in sprouted ragi malt. Soaking and sprouting the ragi grains breaks down the complex proteins into simpler amino acids and lowers the fat level. It’s easier for babies to digest this way. (Soaking and Sprouting- Health benefits)

How much is too much for your baby?

Always start your kid on a smaller bit of new food and increase the amount over three days. It’s safe to feed your infant ragi, as long as the baby hasn’t experienced any adverse reactions, such as loose stools or gastrointestinal discomfort. Do not compel the infant to eat the entire bowl; let him make his own decisions.

As with any other food, ragi should be consumed in moderation to avoid any negative effects on the body.
