What causes baby food allergies
This Wednesday, the 4-year-old Jialong and the five-month-old cousin were sick. A circle of eczema grew around Jialong’s lips, which was red and itchy. The little cousin at the aunt’s house had diarrhea more than ten times a day.Cry at night.
Jialong’s mother and aunt talked on the phone every day to discuss the strangeness of the children. Jialong’s mother first realized that: “I’m afraid Jialong is allergic to spinach. The last time he ate spinach, he also developed eczema, but this time it was not as severe.
Your little one is adding complementary food, I’m afraid it’s just the complementary food that made her diarrhea and vomiting . I don’t believe you stopped this complementary food and tried to replace breast milk.
According to statistics from pediatric experts, in 1986, less than 8% of children who reported that they had food allergies within the age of 8 years, and by 2006, the number of children with food allergies within the age of 8 had risen to 34%. Why are allergies?More children?
Supplementary babies 20 years ago only ate breast milk and rice cakes, added egg yolk after 8 months, and drank milk after 1 year of age.
Now, impatient parents add a lot of complementary foods to their children in 4 months. For infants around 6 months, 50%?
60% rely on milk in whole or in part.
In view of the inadequate development of gastrointestinal function of newborns, intolerance to lactose, and allergy to α-lactalbumin, β-lactoglobulin and bovine serum proteins in milk, many infants have allergies such as diarrhea, vomiting and abdominal colicNot surprisingly.
The preventive method is to add supplementary foods such as milk and egg yolk after 6 months, and add them in the same amount, from small to large, carefully observe and carefully screen for possible allergens.
Once the child develops allergies (newborns usually have gastrointestinal reactions), it is best to quickly remove the complementary food and seek alternative foods.
Picky eaters cause allergies. For kids who can already eat independently, giving them access to a variety of natural foods can reduce allergies.
Today’s children are very picky. Some people do not eat certain foods for years, and the body starts to absorb the enzymes that digest this food. Then, occasionally eating this kind of food (such as fillings in quick-frozen dumplings) may cause allergies.
This is why some children are allergic to spinach, soy, wheat and fish.
Some children with allergies in processed foods develop rashes as soon as they eat instant noodles, and some eat fresh potato shreds, but their eyelids become swollen as soon as they eat canned potato chips. These phenomena cannot be ignored by parents.
In fact, the reason is simple: children are not allergic to the food itself, but they are allergic to flavors, pigments, preservatives, etc.
Once your child has this condition, try to get him to eat natural green food to avoid most allergy symptoms.
Certain fruits and vegetables contain natural toxins. It is undeniable that allergens may also be present in fresh fruits and vegetables.
For example, the cores and seeds of apples, apricots, pears, cherries and peaches, and plums contain an allergen called “cyanogenic glucoside”, which may be poisoned by ingestion, but this element does not exist in the pulp.
Therefore, it is very likely that the child is not allergic to apples or allergic to apple pits. Be careful to pit them when feeding fresh fruits.
Another example is green beans, red kidney beans, and white kidney beans, which contain allergic phytohemagglutinins. This toxin has the highest concentration when it is cooked at 80 ° C, so it must be cooked thoroughly before eating.
Do n’t “allure one piece” for allergies. You ca n’t identify allergies from a one-time diarrhea and vomiting after eating a certain kind of food. You must do an “excitation test” to help diagnose.Your child eats food that may be allergic, and observes if the child has an allergic reaction.
This method has certain dangers. In order to ensure foolproofness, experiments must be performed in the hospital, and the brakes must be accelerated to desensitize.
The “excitation experiment” is very necessary at some times, it can ensure that parents will not prevent the introduction of a large class of food due to misjudgment, which will lead to malnutrition in children.
For example, about 20% of children suffer from one or more allergies in seafood, but are not sensitive to all seafood. Once they make a “shield expansion” error, it is equivalent to eliminate rich protein and brain gold in seafood.DHA is definitely harmful to the intellectual development of children.
