Fat is a vital nutrient, which is an essential source of energy and provides necessary building blocks for the cells in the body. Fats are essential for brain development, visual systems, maintaining healthy skin, reproduction, and immune function. Some figure conscious mothers think that they can also keep their baby fit by serving food with limited fat in diet but actually it is not really advisable to start diet for baby. In reality infant needs more fats as they grow very fast. It’s a myth that limiting fat in your baby’s diet will decrease the risk of heart disease or control her weight at an adult age. On the contrary, being underweight in childhood has higher risk than gaining more weight. Low fat in diet at child age can reduce growth of baby and may create problems in younger age. Fat free diet can sometimes cause visual problems and mental problems in child.
Breast feeding is the best way to supply enough fat to your baby. Breastfeeding your baby for one year is the best way to keep your baby healthy. It is also essential for mother to take healthy diet with a little fatty foods. Breast milk contains 50% fat. Therefore, it is essential to provide your baby fat rich diet up to one year.
