Save your Children from STRESS…

Stress is very common condition. You can see it in every human being. There is no one who haven’t deal with the stress once in a lifetime. Most of the time Stress occurs because of the situations, post-traumatic , hormonal imbalance, etc.

Being an adult you can understand what is stress in your feeling and how to deal with it. But in case of children, they doesn’t have any knowledge about stressful feelings, what to do with that feelings so they can’t handle it with their mental situation.

The sources of stress can be external such as a problem at school, changes in the family,  conflict with a friend. Anxious feelings can also be caused by child’s internal feelings like doing well in studies , doing more of their interests.

  • Big changes in the family like divorce, a death or a birth of new sibling.
  • Constantly running from one activity to another can cause a great deal of stress for children, who usually need some me-time every once in while.
  • Children who are bullied often feel embarrassed about being targeted and they may hide the bullying from parents or teachers for fear of drawing attention to their perceived weaknesses.

Parents have to take care of all this things. 

  • Try to understand mental status of your child.
  • Don’t force your child to do the things in which they have least or no interest.
  • Make they to study in stress-free environment at home.
  • Behave like a friend & help them to solve their problems wisely.
  • Try to improve their weaknesses without putting them into competitions for that particular weakness.

Childhood traumas such as living in an abusive home or being neglected, can contribute to a wide array of problems down the road,  including drug and alcohol addiction, depression and anxiety & even Cardiovascular diseases. 

It is very important to save your child from having stress in their early life because chronic stress and anxiety leads to mood disorders & anxiety disorders in Adulthood. 

 

Stay Healthy, Stay Happy.

World Leprosy Day

World Leprosy Day is observed internationally on January 30 or its nearest Sunday to increase the public awareness of the Leprosy or Hansen’s Disease. This day was chosen in commemoration of the death of Gandhi, the leader of India who understood the importance of leprosy.

With over 2 lakh new cases of leprosy reported each year on an average globally.

WHO says national programmes should boost active case-fining, strengthen surveillance, improve contact-tracing and focus more on the global target of zero child infection by 2020.

Leprosy was globally declared to have been ” eliminated as a public health problem” 18 years ago.

Leprosy is caused by infection with the bacillus Mycobacterium leprae, which multiplies very slowly in the human body. The bacterium has a long incubation period (on average 5 years or longer). The disease affects nerve endings and destroys the body’s ability to feel pain & injury.

Data published by WHO in 2017 show that although the overall number of cases is slowly declining, that of new cases does not align with global efforts and resources deployed to interrupt transmission.

Reports from 145 countries of WHO’s six regions show that of the total of 216108 newly diagnosed cases of leprosy during 2016, 18472 involved children, representing almost 9% of all new cases reported annually.

Leprosy is curable and treatment provided in the early stages eliminate disability.

Multidrug therapy is made available free of change through WHO and has been donated to all patients worldwide by Novartis since 2000. It provides a simple yet highly effective care for all types of leprosy.

A study was done by University of Pennsylvenia. Study relates with fish consumption. Omega-3 fatty acids are known to play critical roles in the growth and functioning of neural tissue, their effects on cognitive outcomes are of particular interest.

fish-

Maternal fish intake or fish oil supplements during pregnancy, for instance , it is associated with improved neurodevelopmental outcomes in infants & young children, including language and visual motor skills at 6 and 18 months, eye and hand coordination at age 2.5 years, and IQ at age 4 years.

Dietary fish and omega-3 fatty acid intake is also associated with improved cognitive and academic performance in adolescents, and reduced cognitive decline and dementia in older age.

Study suggests that frequent fish consumption may help reduce sleep problems (better sleep quality) ,which may in turn benefit long-term cognitive functioning in children. A dose response relationship indicates high IQ scores in children who always or sometimes consumed fish compared to those who rarely ate fish.

Children who eat fish at least once a week sleep better and have IQ scores that are 4 points higher, on average, than those who consume fish less frequently or not at all. So try to include fish in your children’s regular diet and keep them over all healthy.

Eggs are Healthy for Infant Brain Development

Hello healthy community . Today I came with some latest research information which will be beneficial to all parents for their brilliant child.

Eggs feeding to infants can provide key nutrient for better brains.

EGGS

A study from the Brown School at Washiongton University in St. Louis finds infants who were introduced to eggs beginning at 6 months showed significantly higher blood concentrations of choline, other biomarkers in choline pathways, and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA).

Lora lannotti, associate dean for public health and associate professor at the Brown School is lead author of study ,”Eggs Early in Complementary Feeding Increase Choline Pathway Biomarkers and DHA: A Randomized Controlled Trial in Ecuador,”published in American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.

Choline (a nutrient that acts like vitamin B) and DHA (an omega-3 fatty acid that serves as a structural component of the brain) play vital roles in infant brain development and function.

“Like milk or seeds, eggs are designed to support the early growth and development of an organism and are, therefore, dense in nutrient content,” Lannotti said. “Eggs provide essential fatty acids, proteins, choline, vitamin A & B12, selenium and other critical nutrients at levels above or comparable to those found in other animal food products, but they are relatively more affordable.”

Research showed that – Early introduction of Eggs significantly improved linear growth and reduced stunting among infants who were introduced to eggs beginning at 6 months.

Other than research we all know about how much nutritious Eggs are, So you should include an egg in your daily diet whatever your age is.
