Hello Mum and Dads,
I would like to give some messages to fathers for this week's article. Healthy development of our child is not only through nutrition. The environment we live in, social factors, cultural factors, family behavior, education, etc.… factors affect our child. But what is known and felt is that the father has as much influence as the mother on his child. From nutrition to education, they need to have an idea with their father.
We use the food pyramid that we use in adults to plan the feeding of 2-3 year old children. The American Dietetic Association has established a nutritional guide for children.
|FOOD GROUPS IN FOOD PYRAMID|
|I GROUP||GRAIN, BREAD GROUP|
|II GROUP||VEGETABLE AND FRUIT GROUP|
|III GROUP||MILK AND YOGHURT GROUP|
|IV GROUP||MEAT EGGS|
|V GROUP||SUGAR AND OILS|
|HOW MUCH WILL A 2-3 YEARS OLD CHILD EAT FROM FOOD?|
|I GROUP||6 PORTION|
|II GROUP||5 PORTION|
|III GROUP||3 PORTION|
|IV GROUP||2 PORTION|
|V GROUP||3-4 PORTION|
You have now learned how many servings from which food group your 2-3 year old child should eat.
However, it came to learn what the value of 1 portion of these food groups means.
If you learn the amount of 1 portion of food entering each food group, you will be able to distribute the amount of portions to be consumed daily.
The purpose of this food pyramid is to provide sufficient and balanced protein, energy, vitamins and minerals that the child will need.
|GRAIN BREAD GROUP (6 PORSION)|
|BREAD||1/2 FINE SLICE|
|RICE / PASTA||1/3 BOWL|
|READY GRAIN (corn flakes)||1/3 BOWL|
|CRACKER / BISCUITS||3 PIECES|
|VEGETABLE GROUP (3 PORSION)|
|COOKED FRESH CHOPPED||1/3 BOWL|
|VEGETABLE WATER||1/3 BOWL|
When choosing vegetables, make sure that vegetables rich in vitamin A and C are in the menu. Vegetables rich in vitamin A are dark green-yellow, and those rich in vitamin C are ice orange-yellow and green vegetables.
|FRUIT GROUP (2 PORSION)|
|FRESH FRUIT, JUICE||1/3 BOWL|
|FRESH FRUIT||1/2 PCS|
|MILK-YOGHURT GROUP (3 PORSION)|

Important note: When planning your child's nutrition, make sure that there are 3 main meals and at least 2 meals. It is recommended not to use LOW OIL, OIL, LIGHT PRODUCTS for children 2 years and under.
Next week you will learn about the portion to be consumed and the amount equivalent to 1 portion in children aged 4-5 years. You will see menu examples to gather our information.
