To dispel the rumors, the mother is short and the child must be short! Pediatrician: Find the right way to raise your child

Text | Jingma Pediatrics Dr. Zhu found that parents have many misunderstandings about the growth of children's height, one of which is: if the mother is short, the child must be short! Dr. Zhu mentioned that this is not necessarily the case. First of all, the height of the child is genetically 70% related to the height of the parents, and 30% related to the environment! # Yao Zero Zero Plan# From the "Lancet" magazine, the height of our Chinese children, in the past 35 years, whether it is a boy or a girl, the height of the growth is the highest in the world. It also means that heredity is still the same genetic gene, but because of the changes in the child's nutrition in the past 30 years, the parents' attention to the child's height has changed, and the child's height has gradually increased! In Dr. Zhu's comment area, there are also many netizens who agree with Dr. Zhu's views. A netizen in Jiangsu said: She is 1.52 meters tall, her son is 1.8 meters tall, and her daughter is 1.65 meters tall. A netizen in Guangdong said: I am only 1.5 meters tall, but I have given birth to a pair of children, both of whom are 1.7 meters tall. A netizen in Shandong said: I am 1.48 meters, my son is 1.9 meters, and my daughter is 1.7 meters. A netizen in Jiangxi said: My wife is 1.48 meters, and her 12-year-old daughter's net height is 1.63 meters. An Anhui netizen said: I am 1.49 meters and my son is 1.84 meters! Therefore, many netizens came out and told us that mothers are short and don't despair. There is still a lot of room for children to become tall.

In order for their children to grow taller, parents should do the following things before the child turns 15

Number 1: It is best to exclusively breastfed the child's height growth period is before the age of one year. In just one year, the child's height increases by 50%, from 50 cm to 75 cm. At this time, the main nutrition of the child is milk. It is recommended to give the child exclusive breastfeeding, because the nutrition in breast milk is more suitable for the digestion and absorption of the child. Item 2: Supplementing vitamin D before the child is three years old and vitamin D promotes the absorption of calcium, which can make the child grow taller. The content of vitamin D in natural foods is relatively small, and the child's ability to produce vitamin D by itself before the age of three will be relatively weak. . Therefore, it is recommended that children artificially supplement vitamin D before the age of three, and supplement more than 400 international units per day, which is of great help to children's calcium absorption and height growth. Item 3: Cultivate the habit of exercising outdoors in children. Since children can walk at the age of one, they should often take children to exercise outdoors. When exercising outdoors, the sun shines on the child's body, which can stimulate the secretion of the child's growth hormone, which is also conducive to the synthesis of the child's vitamin D, which is conducive to the growth of the child's bones. Children grow up slowly, and consciously cultivate children to do jumping sports, such as skipping rope, playing basketball, playing badminton, and touching sports. Get at least 1-2 hours of outdoor exercise every day. Item 4: Cultivate the habit of going to bed early and getting up early. Children should go to bed early when they are young. After the child is three years old, insist on putting the child to bed before 9:30 every night, because the night is the peak period of growth hormone secretion. Especially from eleven o'clock to one o'clock in the morning, it is the peak period of growth hormone secretion in 24 hours a day. At this time, let the child enter a deep sleep state, so that the child's growth hormone secretion can be higher, which is more helpful for the child to grow taller. . Item 5: Parents educate their children to be gentle and avoid scolding and scolding. If parents often beat and scold their children, it will affect the child's emotions. Once the child's emotions are affected, it will affect his exercise, affect his diet, and indirectly affect the child's height. Item 6: Pay attention to calcium supplementation for children in their youth, long-term and high-level period. In the "Reference Intake of Dietary Nutrients for Chinese Residents", when children are 11 to 13 years old, the daily calcium required is 1200 mg. Children's daily meals can provide about 500 mg of calcium, and drinking 400 ml of milk every day can supplement 400 mg of calcium, so the child still has a 300 mg calcium gap. Therefore, when giving calcium tablets to children, it is best to choose calcium tablets that contain vitamin D, which can better promote calcium absorption. Item 7: To give children a rich and varied diet, the most important way of nutrient intake for children is meals, so when we cook meals for children, we must diversify the food. It is recommended that children eat 12 kinds of food every day and 35 kinds of food every week, which is conducive to the intake of various nutrients for children.
