Ingredients: potato powder, potato starch, modified food starch, vegetable oil. Is it healthy?

Generic "vegetable oil" is almost certainly corn, soy or canola which are all gmo if not organic & very toxic, fried potatoes have carcinogenic acrylamides. ...Read more

Aren't foods healthier microwaved instead of fried?

Aren't foods healthier microwaved instead of fried?

For the most part: If you fry foods at too low a temperature or put too much food in the pan it will lengthen the time it takes to cook and will cause the food to absorb more fat from the oils. Some oils are less healthy than others. Studies support the notion that fried foods increase the risk of cancer and cardiovascular disease. Frying in a canola oil for very brief time at high temp may be less harmful. ...Read more

Which is better for a 3 year old picky eater a multivitamin or pedisure nutrition drink?  On top of nutritional meals

Whole food vitamin : I like whole food vitamins that give you the equivalent of several servings of fruits and veggies. Good healthy foods should be presented with no ability to "place order" ( unless allergies ). Limit drinks as kids can fill up on milk and juice and not experience hunger. Make a healthy smoothie at home if needed. Find high calorie nutrient dense foods so do not need large quantity to be consumed. ...Read more

Does broiling vegetable destroy the nutrients? Talking about vegetables like zucchini, squash, pepper. If i broil them about 10 minutes, will the nutrients be intact?

Does not destroy: Broiling does not destroy the nutrients in vegetables, but it diminishes them. Broiling is an easy way to consume vegetables with minimal fat, which is a great idea. Broiling also browns them, in something called the maillard reaction. This produces flavor compounds we find pleasing. This will make you hopefully eat more vegetables. And that's good. ...Read more

6 months old baby started eating organic made baby food. Now is constipated.she's had sweet potatoes, banana, Apple's, peas, squash, zucchini. ?

Why the rush: Solids in the first year do not help the baby grow better.Breast milk is an adequate nutrition source, and solids today are primarily a training process to transition them to the table. Apples and bananas are constipating agents. Prunes & pears loosen stools. I'd quit the rush through the list of foods and just keep it simple. ...Read more

Can a person live on nutritional drinks such as ensure for few months while having jaw/teeth surgery? Want to make sure I am getting enough nutrition

Yes, but...: Unfortunately, the marketers neglect to warn the consumers about the huge risk to the patient's dental health. These products are loaded with sugar. In my elderly patients and those on mouth-drying meds, it is not uncommon to see new root cavities after routine use of these "nutritional supplements." moderation means variation--no one food/item is a panacea, and everything comes at with a risk. ...Read more

Intestinal motility: None of this suggests a serious health problem. Intestinal passage can be as little as 1-2 hours after eating something that sufficiently stimulates bowel motility. Eight hours is well within normal for some people with some foods, including certain fruits and vegetables. Strong odor is common when motility is rapid. ...Read more
