jam Just a couple of decades ago, semolina considered almost basic cereal for infants. Times change, and the opinions of the medical profession are changing. Today semolina is no longer considered a substitute for mother's milk and suitable food for the baby. Mainly because of its characteristics and because of insufficient maturity of the intestines of the newborn.

Feeding baby Semolina porridge - eat or not eat? That is the question. ..

Reasons for not decoys in infancy

Why baby 6-7 months can not enter the semolina in the diet? Manka - quite

a useful porridge for an adult, whose body is adapted to this world and the food available in it. But useful for the adult components of the product can hurt the baby. Such components are gluten, gliadin and phytin.

Depending on the nature of the chair and set them grudnichka weight speed, the lure should start with vegetable puree or porridge, boiled water. You can start with the following porridges:

  1. buckwheat;
  2. corn;
  3. rice.

Recommend to enter the first buckwheat. Boil milk is not worth it because cow protein often causes allergies in infants. For cooking, you can grow milk with water, but only in 9-10 months.

Three words against decoys

Dr. Komarovsky, as well as other pediatricians warn parents - the first cereal, which is administered in solid foods should be gluten-free.

  • Gluten is a useful vegetable protein called gluten. However, in infants, it leads to the adhesion of the villi of the immature epithelium of the intestine, and this can lead to a violation of absorption of beneficial compounds and inflammatory processes. Also, it can act as an allergen. Therefore, it is better to give preference to buckwheat or corn groats.
The first lure of porridge Modern pediatrics advises first of all to introduce in the diet not manna but buckwheat porridge. It gently affects the immature gastrointestinal tract
The rice porridge of the baby can be fed, but it should be remembered that rice is a natural sorbent, it removes trace elements from the body, including useful ones, and also possesses fixing properties, so it is not worth taking a fancy.
  • Gliadin is a glycoprotein, a component of the proteinaceous nature, thanks to which the adhesion and necrosis of the intestinal villous epithelium occurs, resulting in the development of celiac disease in children who are predisposed to this disease. In the future, according to a number of specialists, chronic inflammation can be transformed into oncoprocess.
  • Fitin - an excellent antioxidant, helps the liver. However, there is harm - it is believed that it interferes with the absorption of zinc, calcium and magnesium, necessary for a growing body. In this case, the process of assimilation of iron can be disrupted, and also problems with vitamin D arise. As a consequence, a child develops rickets. This issue is controversial, until now, nutritionists have not agreed on this. In addition, there is very little in the mank of the phytin, but as an additional factor it can play a role.

Benefits of manga for children older than the year

A favorite of many cereals, of course, has its advantages for the child's body. Use of porridge:

  • Contains essential B vitamins that strengthen the nervous system, as well as vitamin E - the key to the growth and development of the baby( 50% of the daily norm of 100 grams for a baby from 1 year old).
  • Contains micronutrients such as magnesium and potassium, which have a beneficial effect on the cardiovascular system, as well as silicon, strengthening tooth enamel.
  • Improves digestion, enveloping the gastrointestinal tract and relieving spasms.

At what age can you enter a manga?

Lure of semolina porridge Manna porridge is given to the kid at the age of at least 8 months, when the intestine begins to develop its own protective mechanisms. However, it is better to delay the lure of this crop for a year and later

. Despite such an unflattering characteristic, semolina porridge is a useful and even necessary product from a certain age. With how many months is it better to inject a semolina in this case? Approximately from 11-12 months, that is after 1 year. There is an opinion that it is possible to give a mango to an 8-month-old baby in a liquid form, but it is better to postpone its introduction to later terms.

In a single situation it is worth doing at such an early age - when the baby does not gain much weight:

  1. This product is very useful for children who do not gain weight because of their caloric content. Even on liquid porridge, the slimest baby will recover.
  2. There are a lot of vegetable protein in the semolina, micronutrients and vitamins, as well as starch, which the body transforms into bioenergy.
  3. This porridge does not require long cooking, due to which quite a large number of vitamins in it will be preserved during cooking.
Even after the gastrointestinal tract and its enzymatic system have reached maturity, it's not worth while zealous with semolina. It is desirable to cook it infrequently - no more than 1 time per week, and even less often, up to 3 years of age.

Like any lure, enter the manga carefully and carefully, following the reaction of the baby. If there are signs of allergy( most often it's skin rashes), the product should be immediately ruled out from the diet of the baby and try to repeat its introduction in a few months.
