Baby food supplement "come on" strategy, new mothers come here

There is a lot of knowledge about baby food supplements. Today, let's talk about the baby's oil. The following lists a few questions about the baby's oil intake. After reading it, you will know how to "refuel" your baby. Question 1 At what age can children add complementary cooking oil? The "Dietary Guidelines for Chinese Residents" points out that if children aged 7 to 9 months are supplemented with grains, vegetables, fruits and other plant foods, they need to add 5 to 10 grams of fat. If the baby can eat enough meat, eggs, fish and other animal foods, there is no need to deliberately refuel. Question 2 Which oil is more suitable for children?
  • Animal oils: The fats in common animal foods are usually saturated fats, such as butter and lard.
  • Vegetable oils: Seed foods contain more unsaturated fatty acids, such as peanut oil, rapeseed oil, olive oil, and walnut oil.
Compared with animal oils, vegetable oils are healthier, so vegetable oils are the first choice for extra fats added to children. Vegetable oils can give priority to walnut oil, linseed oil, perilla oil, camellia oil and other vegetable oils rich in alpha-linolenic acid. Alpha-linolenic acid is an essential fatty acid that can be converted into a certain amount of DHA in the body to promote the brain development. Tips: Different types of edible vegetable oils have different fatty acid ratios. In order to ensure a more balanced intake of fatty acids, it is recommended to give your baby a different type to eat. Question 3 Self-extracting oil, can I feed it to my baby? Self-extraction ≠ security. As early as 2014, the People's Daily reported that self-pressed edible oil is prone to produce aflatoxins. And because there are few professional testing tools in the family, before regular manufacturers produce edible oil, they will conduct a series of testing with professional equipment for raw materials to ensure safety. Under normal circumstances, most edible oils have to undergo degumming, deacidification, decolorization, deodorization and other links to remove harmful substances and turn them into "refined oils". However, there is no refining process for self-extracted oil, and there is no way to remove the harmful substances in it. Self-pressed oil that has not been refined and processed will contain other impurities, such as moisture, machine impurities, pigments, free fatty acids, etc. in addition to harmful substances. These impurities are prone to produce harmful substances during the cooking process, which endanger human health. Therefore, it is not recommended for babies to eat self-pressed oil, and it is also recommended to choose edible oil produced by regular manufacturers for household oil. Question 4 The recommended amount of cooking oil for babies of different months [1] Question 5 What should you pay attention to when buying oil for your baby? 1. Buying small-sized oil for a long time will increase the risk of oxidative rancidity of the fat in the oil, which not only affects the taste, but also increases the risk of food safety. 2. The fat in the dark glass packaging oil is easily affected by ultraviolet rays and causes oxidation. Dark glass packaging can better store cooking oil. 3. Select a fresh date With the increase of storage time, the probability of oil oxidation and rancidity will also increase, and the fresh date is more assured. Reference [1] Chinese Nutrition Society.
