Children Vaccine UK

vacinnations

ACCORDING TO THE NHS website……in the UK , babies as young as 8-16 weeks are vaccinated with rotavirus vaccine to combat rotavirus infection which is a form of gastroenteritis, which the NHS same web page says is “Gastroenteritis can be very unpleasant, but it usually clears up by itself within a week. You can normally look after yourself or your child at home until you’re feeling better.”

SO WHY ON EARTH ARE THEY VACCINATING BABIES WITH SOMETHING THAT CLEARS UP ON ITS OWN…..WHY???

ORANGE JUICE…D-D-D-DON’T BELIEVE THE HYPE.

Just watching some BBC TV 2 “Rip Off Britain” food programme, according to some UK university who tested concentrated orange juice(which is a commodity on the stock exchange , it can be stored unlike fresh) AND freshly squeezed orange juice, to see vitamin C and anti-oxidant content.Their tests showed little difference.We need to remember that many science facilitates of some universities are funded by pharmaceutical and processed food industries, it is common knowledge int eh field of nutrition, quoted by Dr Colin T Campbell, Professor Emirus at Cornel university in USA, that too many government nutritionist are on the pay roll of these companies.

Fresh Orange Juice..is not cheap :)

There is no way that orange juice that is concentrated, the process involves boiling the orange juice for a long period of time to evaporate the water, there is no way that this orange juice has  a similar genuine vitamin C content as fresh because vitamin C is  HEAT SENSITIVE VITAMIN.

Heat and storage methods can degrade the amount of vitamin C in the juice. Pasteurization, for example, uses high heat to kill microbes, but a great deal of vitamin C can be lost through this process. Vitamin C is also lost over time, so the fresher the orange, the more vitamin C it tends to have.

 

Commercial producers of concentrated orange juice add artificial vitamin C in the form of ascorbic acid to bump up with nutritional data.

 

Vitamin C is also called ascorbic acid, and food manufacturers have found an easy way of adding ascorbic acid to foods such as juices to up the quota of vitamin C listed on the ingredient label.

Home Made is Best

It is better to eat a whole orange instead of orange juice, since whole foods have higher nutritional content than processed. For example, in addition to 98 mg of vitamin C, one large orange supplies 4.4 g fiber, 74 mg of calcium and 131 mcg of beta-carotene — nutrients that are all lost in the juicing process.

Vitamin loss can be induced by a number of factors. Obviously, losses of vitamins depend on cooking time, temperature, and cooking method. Some vitamins are quite heat-stable, whereas others are heat-labile. From textbooks in nutrition, such as Kreutleret al. [1987], many other factors than heat can destroy (some) vitamins, such as: solubility in water, exposure to air (oxidation), exposure to light (UVs), heat, acid and alkaline solutions, storage losses, etc. Here is a tabular summary:

BABY’S FIRST FOOD

Baby’s first food is really important and too often , for convenience sake ,w e impose our culture food on these pure sweet little creatures.Their taste buds are not corrupted like our and they are satisfied with pure whole food tastes without frying and fancy sauces, though the use of herbs and spices can be introduced for health benefits.

Whole Food, Baby Food
Whole Food, Baby Food

firstly i would say whole foods, everything from scratch, observe and document if he likes sweet spicy sour etc foods, do not force him to eat things he doesn’t like

by sweet i mean fruits, dry fruits , honey, not sugar foods

by spicy i mean onions, ginger chilli only little bits

by sour i mean lemon, citrus
try him with different grains whole grains;brown rice, wheat, millet, quinoa
diary is not necessary

protein, not meat every day, try him with diary pulses, nut milk and meat and fish a couple of times as week and see what he likes

please let me know

our biggest mistake as parents is we try to enforce our taste on to children rather than taking into regard the best nutrition for their temperament, this is learning curve for me to , so please bear with me
