Barnmat (råd att köpa burkar)

MIn dotter har en liten på dryga fem månader och på BVC fick hon och andra nyblivna föräldrar under ett informationsmöte med bl a barndietisten, rådet att köpa färdig barnmat på burk "för då vet man vad barnet får i sig!"

Hade det inte varit bättre att lära de vuxna bra matvanor (som min dotter förvisso har) och hur man gör för att även de små kan få smakportioner av samma mat.
Salta mindre, rena råvaror osv.
Blir även billigare och garanterat nyttigare med nylagat.

Hej!

Måste bara säga att det är ett jättkonstigt råd! Jag har två barn på tre och sex år och jag har aldrig fått rådet att ge dem burkmat. Jag har heller aldrig gett dem det. De kan äta samma mat som vi vuxna, det är ju bara att mixa maten och ta det lugnt med kryddningen. Då vet man väl verkligen vad de får i sig!

 

Barnmat är enligt min mening väldigt dyrt och innehåller ofta socker. Gjordes det inte en undersökning för några år sedan som visade att en väldigt stor del av innehållet bestod av vatten också, eller minns jag fel?

 

Ha en bra dag!

Jo, tror man kollade barnmatsburkar och spolade i vatten för att se hur mycket mat den egentligen innehöll. Det mesta var potatis som därmed fick ett väldigt högt kilopris!

 

Svårt är det hur som helst att inte säga för mycket om maten utan att föräldrarna ska känna att jag klankar på dom! Det enda dom vill är ju att göra det bästa!

Fruit and veg diet 'danger for toddlers'

Nutritionists say too much fibre and too little fat on nursery menus can lead to stunted growth

For years nutritionists have recommended a diet high in fibre and low in fat, with plenty of fruit and vegetables. Now, however, nurseries are being told the food they serve in accordance with these guidelines is unsuitable for toddlers and could lead to vitamin deficiencies and even stunted growth.

'Nurseries are applying the principles of adult healthy eating to the food they are supplying to young children,' said Sarah Almond, a consultant specialist paediatric dietician who has analysed the results of a trading standards study into nursery food.

'We expected the study to show nurseries were serving children food that was too high in calories, fat, saturated fat and salt, and low in vegetables and fruit. Instead, we found that the majority of nurseries had gone to the other extreme and appeared to be providing food that was too low in calories, fat and saturated fat and too high in fruit and vegetables.' This situation was putting children at the risk of developing nutritional deficiencies, she said.

The research also found that four out of five nurseries were giving children portions that were too small and only three in 10 provided them with meals containing enough calories. According to Almond, the under-five age group has different and specific nutritional requirements to those children of school age: pre-school children have a high energy and nutrient requirement. Because they have a small stomach and a relatively under-developed gut, they cannot consume large quantities of food at a time but need frequent small meals and snacks throughout the day.

In addition, too much fibre - such as that absorbed through over-consumption of fruit and vegetables - can result in insufficient intake of other food groups and inhibit the absorption of key minerals. 'Because a significant number of children attend nurseries from 7am until 7pm, the food and nutrition they receive there are key to their health,' said Almond. 'Nurseries are applying requirements of healthy eating for school-age children and adults to the one-to-four age group, who have entirely different requirements.'
