Why ice cream should be treated with caution
More 3-4 decades ago, ice cream was an exclusively natural product. It was made from eggs, cream or milk and sugar. All flavors were only natural products - chocolate, cocoa, fruit juices or jams. And nursing mothers of those years calmly enjoyed ice cream at any time, when it wanted.
It was necessary only to try to choose not too fat( milk, but not creamy) varieties of ice cream, so that the crumbs were not tormented by constipation due to too fat Mama's milk.
Today, ice cream made from natural milk or cream, without the addition of artificial colors, flavors, flavor enhancers, and chemical stabilizers and preservatives that make the shelf life of ice cream surprisingly long, is very difficult to find.
. Many manufacturers easily deceive potential buyers by hiding honest information about the product.
Beautiful words about natural origin hide under themselves sometimes completely inedible components.
And after all, what the nursing mother eats, with her milk will necessarily fall into the baby's body. Therefore, if you really want ice cream, then the nursing mother should choose the product that will be as natural as possible.
In addition, it is necessary to take into account the age of the baby. After all, to the question of whether it is possible to breastfeeding mother in the first month of feeding, the answer is unequivocal: it is impossible. About the diet in the first month after childbirth can be read here.
4 rules you need to know before biting off the first piece of ice cream
If you decided to treat yourself to ice cream, you need to adhere to the following rules:
1 It is necessary to take into account the characteristics of the child's body. If he is allergic to milk protein, then about eating a snow dessert, there can be no question. I'll have to wait and wait for the end of the lactation period. If there was no reaction from the baby to the milk from the cow, then the mother can sometimes eat ice cream.
2 There may be an allergy in the baby to chocolate and citrus fruits. That's why my mother can not afford to eat even a little ice cream with chocolate, cocoa or lemon-orange-tangerine.
3 Trying to introduce a new dessert into your diet, the nursing mother may not before the baby is at least a few months old. In pediatrics, this age is at least 9 months. If there is a reason to introduce cow milk into the baby's diet before, it is diluted with water in a 1: 1 ratio. Lure on cow's milk is introduced as necessary, that's the same way with ice cream for mom - if you have the strength to suffer, it's better to suffer.
Well, if refusal of a snowy delicacy affects the mood of a nursing mother, then you can try to please yourself.
4 Ice cream when breastfeeding is better to enter the menu of mother's joys with a small portion, and look at the response of the body crumbs. For cow's milk, which is part of the ice cream, or for fruit supplements, the child may experience an allergic reaction - a rash, redness, peeling of the skin.
If the mother has chosen a cream ice cream, that is fat, then the baby can begin to suffer from constipation. After trying a new dessert, mom should observe the reaction of the baby who is breastfed.
If the reaction is not observed for 3 days, then mom can sometimes indulge in an ice cream delicacy.
What to choose to choose a mother, breastfeeding breast
Trays with ice cream, which are in stores, just bursting with all sorts of kinds of this delicacy.
The one that is made from vegetable fats, with the addition of preservatives, stabilizers and other chemical components, is best not taken into account immediately.
But the ice cream is natural - creamy, dairy, fruit. What to choose, so that it does not harm the baby?
Lyudmila Denisenko, dietitian, member of the National Society of Nutritionists and the European Association for the Study of Obesity
I recommend ice cream to all women who plan to conceive a child and nursing mothers.
And here, with a spasm of blood vessels, such a delicacy can be eaten only in small portions, very slowly, since the cold will only intensify the spasms.
Ice cream produced in accordance with the requirements of GOST, not TU, enterprises, should have the following characteristics:
- . Fat in ice cream should contain up to 16%.Such an indicator has a real seal. Fruit ice is the lowest-calorie ice cream delicacy of , there is no fat in it at all - 0%;
- Sugar is an indispensable ingredient in any ice cream. Most of all, oddly enough, in a fruit ice cream: ice or sorbet - 30%.The real cream ice cream - the most unsweetened - contains only 15% of sugar.
If a woman who is breastfeeding, very much wants to eat a portion of ice cream, then she, perhaps, should not deny herself this little joy.
You just need to remember that the baby gets through the mother's milk all the useful and harmful substances.
You should also know what supplements you can breastfeed: can it be with GV strawberries, bananas, apples, cherries. What kind of fruit can nursing mothers you will find out here.
To eat cold dessert you need a little, because it can not only respond to the baby, but also the throat of the mother, too happy to be pampered with ice cream.
