eating is the practice of making choices about what and/or how much
one eats with the intention of improving or maintaining good health.
Typically, this means following recommendations of "experts"
regarding a nutritional diet.
The concept of healthy eating is primarily a problem in rich countries
where the lifestyle includes a modicum of outdoor physical activities,
high but not always high-quality food consumption, and a trend towards
industrially-produced foods instead of locally-sourced, locally-prepared
governments and other organizations provide nutritional advice and
launch schemes in order to promote healthy eating. Diets which lead
to obesity, diabetes, and other medical conditions, are a severe
drain of resources for national health providers, and on businesses
due to reduced productivity of staff. Moreover, a person's feelings
of well-being, self-worth, and overall happiness can be severely
diminished by poor dietary habits.
There is also near-unanimous agreement that hydrogenated fats (trans
fats) are not a particularly healthy form of nutrition, and that
consuming flaxseed oil or some types of fish and seafood (a source
of omega-3 fatty acids) before meat and poultry may contribute to
an individual's health and longevity. Unfortunately, consumption
of predatory fish at the top of the food chain (such as swordfish,
mackerel, shark, and albacore tuna) increases one's exposure to
mercury and PCBs, so the hazards may outweigh the health benefits
as most fish contains trace amounts of pollution. However, not all
predatory fish swim in mercury/PCB-polluted waters (chiefly these
are off the eastern seaboard of North America), so one need not
necessarily limit or exclude the consumption of these fish.
have long been a source of controversy -- egg yolks are richer in
cholesterol than egg whites, and should be consumed in moderation,
whereas egg whites are almost pure protein and contain little or
no substances suspected of causing obesity or heart disease. Dairy
products have had a shorter history of controversy, and charges
levelled at dairy focus typically on one of three lines of reasoning.
First, that the allegedly-poor conditions present on industrial
dairy farms may lead to sickened cows, which may lead to sickened
(high pus) milk. Second, that milk is naturally meant to fatten
baby cows into grown heifers in a few short years, and hence may
be incompatible with a balanced human diet. Third, that healthy
bone structures in humans require both calcium and magnesium. Milk
and other dairy products are cited as being high in calcium, but
lacking the magnesium levels required for strong bones. Such a deficiency
would be mitigated by consuming other foods high in magnesium, such
as nuts, seeds, green leafy vegetables, or even certain mineral
waters high in the element.
Carrots have also been proven to show improvements in many areas
of health such as improved vision as well as lowering the risk of
cancers caused by high cholesterol levels in the body. The main
component of carrots responsible for improving vision is beta carotene.
This is also responsible for acting as an anti-oxidant which lowers
free radicals, thus lowering the threat of cancer or heart attacks.
Fears of high cholesterol were frequently voiced up until the mid-1990s.
However, more recent research has shown that the distinction between
high- and low-density lipoprotein ('good' and 'bad' cholesterol,
respectively) must be addressed when speaking of the potential ill
effects of cholesterol. Low density lipoprotein is often prevalent
in animal products, such as bacon and egg yolks, whereas high density
lipoprotein is more common in plant and fish tissues, such as olive
oil and salmon.
foods that are widely regarded as 'safe' may still have bad health
effects when eaten by vulnerable persons. For instance, while the
vast majority of the world's human population enjoy peanuts from
time to time, a minority do experience unpleasant and even sometimes
fatal allergic reactions to them.
The ingredient usually cited as being most crucial to good health,
water, has even been known to result in death when consumed in extraordinary
quantities. Deaths from excessive water drinking have generally
occurred in persons who are or who have recently been under the
influence of hard drugs; for example, MDMA (ecstasy); and in nonelite
athelites, according to a 2005 paper in the New England Journal
of Medicine over-hydration resulting in "Hyponatremia has emerged
as an important cause of race-related death and life-threatening
illness among marathon runners".
of eating routines for young children: Children thrive on routines
and love to know what and when something is expected of them. Even
though every child and family is different, it is important to recognize
the benefits consistent routines provide for children. Daily routines
help children learn a sense of independence, stability and value.
Set times for breakfast, lunch and dinner, along with healthy snacks
throughout the day to make meal times more relaxed. Most children
are happier on a schedule and will become hungry at regular times.
for helping make mealtime a positive experience for children:
* Allow your child to eat at his/her own pace.
* Mealtimes are opportunities for children to learn independence
by making choices about food.
* Encourage your child to taste everything, but do not force him/her
to eat. Because children are picky eaters by nature, it may be necessary
to present them with a new food several times before they actually
eat it on their own.
