Cell phones can be very distracting, and could lead to neglect of things to do, and worse, your son’s welfare. Give your yayas a schedule for when she is allowed to and when not to use their cell phones. Provide an area or a drawer for them to place their cell phones. Let them have their cell phone time, for say, 30 minutes after every meal.
Just how much junk food is your baby eating? A new study sheds some light on startling data on what children ages 2 and below are really eating.
Recent research commissioned by Beech-Nut, a baby food company in the United States, shows that babies are consuming way too much junk food than they should be, which includes sugary drinks, cookies, and salt-ridden packaged snacks.
By 1 year old, more than 40 percent of babies are eating brownies, soft drinks, and salty snacks, the study found.
As a result of this, babies are getting an unhealthy amount of sugar in their diet. By 15 months old, the study found that babies consumed 6 ½ teaspoons of sugar per day, that’s the same amount of sugar found in an 8-ounce cup of soda! The sugar mainly comes from fruit drinks, soda, cookies, sweetened yogurt and ready-to-eat snacks.
Babies don’t actually need sugar in their diet at all, according to the National Health Service (NHS) of the UK. And if they do get sugar, it should come from the sugar naturally found in fruit and breast milk or formula milk.
