Having a hard time looking for a drink healthy and good for your kids?

Parenting

Nowadays, kids are prone to malnutrition due to a series of factors. We have the family lifestyle, accessibility of nutritious food, kid’s food preferences, and so much more

In our beloved country, the Philippines, the malnutrition rate is relatively high according to recent studies. While reports indicate that there is enough food to feed the country, many Filipinos continue to go hungry and become malnourished due to inadequate intake of food and nutrients.

A kid that is malnourished can greatly affect its body development. Some of the most needed nutrients are protein and calcium that play a vital role in being healthy.

Let’s find out facts about nutrition:

Health effects of Protein and Calcium Deficiency (children aged below 7-10 years old)

Reference: Rolfes, S.R., Pinna, K. & Whitney, E. (2012). Understading Normal and Clinical Nutrition (9th Ed. Wadsworth Cengage Learning.

  • Protein Energy Malnutrition (PEM) – This is the deficiency of protein, energy or both, including kwashiorkor, marasmus and instances in which they overlap. It also known as Protein-Calorie Malnutrition (PCM) Protein Wasting
  • Stunting – It is a PEM caused by recent severe food restriction (Acute), it causes underweight for height
  • Wasting – It is a PEM caused by long-term food deprivation (chronic) which results to short height for age

Good effects/benefits of Protein and Calcium (Especially among children aged below 10 years old)

PROTEIN

  • Growth and maintenance (skin, tendons, membranes, muscles, organs, bones, repair of body tissues)
  • Immunity (antibodies are proteins)
  • Participates in blood clotting and wound healing

CALCIUM

  • Rigid bone structure that holds the body upright and serves as  attachment points for muscles, making motion possible

  • Protects against bone loss in the later years of life
  • Prevent fractures from easily happening
  • Participates in nerve impulse transmission (nerve signals)
