What Foods are Rightly Assisted as Breastfeeding Companions?

When the baby turns six months of age, the baby needs more intake of breast milk. The reason, the nutritional content in breast milk has decreased since six months of breastfeeding.

For that, it takes complementary food ASI, which can complement breast milk and meet the nutrients needed for infant growth is not inhibited.

But unfortunately, feeding is often done incorrectly.

“There are many misconceptions among parents who prefer the giving of fruits and vegetables, rather than complementing breast milk with protein, fat and vitamins and minerals,” Dr. Dr. Damayanti R Sjarif Sp.A (K) in a talkshow entitled “The Solution for Answering Nutrition Needs of Children” held by Philips AVENT on Monday, July 31, 2017 at Thamrin Nine Ballroom, Central Jakarta.

Dr Damayanti explains, the most needed nutrients for child’s brain growth is the macro nutrients of carbohydrates, proteins and fats, as well as micronutrients vitamins and minerals. In addition, the need for iron for infants aged 6-12 months is also no longer fulfilled by breast milk.

For that, the right foods are a combination of carbohydrates, proteins, fats, vitamins, and iron. This can be obtained on rice, fish, eggs, milk, coconut milk, and chicken liver.

Giving green vegetables also should not be too much, because it can interfere with the absorption of iron. Alternatively, occasionally replace green vegetables with oranges or tomatoes high in vitamin C.
