Do children diet?

Hello dear readers,

Today, diabetes, which is the most common obesity and related diseases that go down to low ages, is a disease that we hear and encounter quite often. Many studies say that diabetic individuals have high waist fat, both with nutritional disorders and hormonally, and the fat accumulated in this region may be an alarm for us. In other words, if your waist area is fat, you need to pay more attention to it. While the safe range determined by the World Health Organization for women is below 88 cm, the upper limit for men is 102 cm. The accumulation of excess fat around the waist and abdomen, which is the settlement center of our organs, can cause organ failure after a while, forcing the functioning of the organs.

Especially if your child has an excess of fat accumulated only in the waist area, first of all, contact the pediatrician for a general blood count of your child and then a nutritionist for the evaluation of nutritional habits.

Although the concept of diet known among the people is to be hungry – to cut back on what they eat – to eat low calories, diet literally means lifestyle. The concept of diet in children should be taken as an order on changing eating habits, changing behavior, balanced nutrition, and endearing foods. The priority is to determine a treatment method that will protect the mental and physical integrity of the child.

Directing your child to a healthy eating program is directly related to the general functioning of the house, what is on your shopping list, what you eat, what kind of table setting and eating pattern you have. Therefore, you must first acquire the nutritional behaviors you want to see in your child.

The most common problem in the children’s group: The consumption of junk food that is high in calories and low in nutrients, which we call junk food, causes satiety, disrupting the hormonal structure, thus impaired taste perception and impaired appetite.

It is necessary to establish a long-term balance by providing children with a home-cooking culture, giving them other foods with low nutritional properties within healthy limits without integrating them with the concept of reward at certain intervals.

So your child should grow up in this mindset. Food: It is eaten at home, at the table, sitting down. This again integrates with the behavior and habits of the parents. It will not be very meaningful to gloss over the situation with sentences such as ‘but it is healthy, you eat this food, this is the food for adults, mothers and fathers eat, but children do not’. Children are also little people. Their perceptions, understanding, awareness are not less than ours, on the contrary, they are higher. Healthy eating habits appear only in healthy eating families.

Also, the fact that your child’s weight is normal does not make his unhealthy diet normal. Weight is an outward manifestation of problems. In this criterion, you can adopt the 80%-20% rule. In other words, if your child eats 80% healthy and his habits and choices are in this direction, 20% share can be left.
