Are multivitamins or fruits and vegetables healthier for kids?

Are multivitamins or fruits and vegetables healthier for kids?

Real food: Mostly veggies, with one-two servings (small servings) of fresh fruit per day. Real food is better than a supplement - avoid canned veggies and fruits - all the fiber is boiled out of them and many have added salt/sugar. Fresh is best - frozen is next. Also, skip the salty and high fat toppings (like ranch dressing) for the veggies -. ...Read more

Is this a healthy breakfast whole grain whole wheat cereal with vitamin d or almond milk with two eggs and a banana other days i eat a pbnj w/ banana?

HiCarb ↑esObesity DM: You're describing a breakfast which is high in carbohydrates; the grains are no longer hole, they have been ground into flour which dramatically increases their glycemic index ; bananas are a high glycemic index fruit. The eggs are fine yet everything you describe is low fiber content, a highly relevant issue given your stated history. All foods are marketed as healthy because this increases sales. ...Read more

Why are dietary suppliments not a subsitute for eating a variety of healthy foods?

Why are dietary suppliments not a subsitute for eating a variety of healthy foods?

Vitamins: A good multivitamin is a good idea. It's like an insurance policy for when we don't eat right, don't sleep well, or are especially stressed. Go to a good store or get some guidance because the popular brands are typically very week and not helpful. You may not feel any different but your immunity and overall health can improve. Soil in depleted and toxins abound. Good local organic is best. ...Read more

Is low-fat milk any healthier than whole milk for an adult?

Is low-fat milk any healthier than whole milk for an adult?

Not any healthier: Most studies show that lactose intake for adults is not advisable. The amount of fat and the type of fat found in animal milk is more likely to cause harm than good. Perhaps it is safe in very small amounts but otherwise it's best avoided. ...Read more

Is steamed white rice fattening? Can it replace wheat bread in a meal? What are good edible sources of calcium besides milk and suppliments?

Is steamed white rice fattening? Can it replace wheat bread in a meal?  What are good edible sources of calcium besides milk and suppliments?

Yes: White rice has a high glycemic index, which means it causes a rapid rise in your blood sugar. Part of the Insulin response to that rapid increase in blood sugar makes you fat. A tiny amount won't hurt, but it makes it difficult to lose weight. Replace the bread with vegetables. Not rice. Starch is not a required part of a meal. You can get calcium from yogurt, cheese, sardines, greens. ...Read more

What multivitamin is side effect free ? What whole food multivitamin is good for yeast infection and if our diet is not including fruits and vegies ??

Nothing for Sure: There is no multivitamin, supplement or medication that can be said to be side effect free for sure for everyone. You could have adequate levels of one of the vitamins & get toxicity or be allergic to an additive. That said look for a USP certified vitamin & men generally should avoid iron. We over supplement! For yeast infections, can try a probiotic or live culture yogurts. Good luck. ...Read more

Is vegan food good for low iodine diet since it contains no dairy products?

Is vegan food good for low iodine diet since it contains no dairy products?

Get help: if you are sick enough that an evidence-based practitioner has urged a low iodine diet, then you need serious dietary guidance rather than "pop" advice. Get with someone with whom you can get sound advice or you can end up extremely sick. It's the truth. ...Read more

Is it healthy to eat soaked, uncooked steel cut oats? I'm getting mixed messages about the health benefits and difficulties of digesting whole grains.

Is it healthy to eat soaked, uncooked steel cut oats? I'm getting mixed messages about the health benefits and difficulties of digesting whole grains.

It's ok: Uncooked soaked oats, like in muesli, are ok. Cooking breaks down cell walls, turns it into porridge, released mucilages and soluble fiber; makes it easier re: digestion, but not likely an issue with normal GI tract. Arguably some of the undigested carbs might increase gas (fermented by bowel bacteria). ...Read more

My daily breakfast is two slices of whole wheat bread with crunchy peanut butter and fresh blueberries. Is it a good breakfast to eat daily?

My daily breakfast is two slices of whole wheat bread with crunchy peanut butter and fresh blueberries. Is it  a good breakfast to eat daily?

Don't have the rest: of your history to know for sure if it's good. As long as you're not allergic to blueberries, wheat, or peanuts (common allergies that can manifest subclinically). Also as long as it's not GMO wheat, peanuts. Usually the first meal of the day should be the largest (since you can burn it off during the day) and hold you well past lunch.I would increase the protein component.Sounds more like lunch. ...Read more

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

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
