Chicken eggs are always considered a source of nutritious food that is very good for health. However, is it correct to eat chicken eggs at any time to supplement nutrition? Especially for children who are suffering from diarrhea is still a question that many parents are concerned about.
1. Nutritional composition of chicken eggs
Chicken eggs are familiar foods that are processed into many nutritious dishes for young children such as omelettes, boiled eggs, steamed eggs, tomato sauce, ... This food is not only convenient but also offers many ingredients. Nutrients such as protein, calcium, phosphorus, iron, minerals, enzymes, hormones and many vitamins are beneficial for the development of children.
Chicken eggs are often used as daily food and when you want to nourish the body. However, it is not always advisable to give eggs to children, including cases when children have diarrhea.
2. Should children with diarrhea eat eggs?
Chicken eggs have high nutritional value but contain large amounts of protein, fat and amino acids, so they can make diarrhea in children worse. If children eat eggs when they have diarrhea, the activity of digestive enzymes is reduced, digestive juices are secreted less, causing lipid and protein metabolism to be disturbed. At the same time, the physiological function of intestinal peristalsis exceeds the normal level, the inherent anabolic function is affected, the function of water and nutrient reabsorption in the small intestine is hindered, making the nutritional components excreted through the gastrointestinal tract. Therefore, eating chicken eggs during diarrhea not only loses the effect of providing nutrients to the body but also makes the disease worse.
In addition, if the eggs are not hygienic, they can also contain salmonella bacteria causing diarrhea, abdominal pain, vomiting. When you have diarrhea, your child's digestive system is already sensitive, so if you get salmonella from unclean food, it will make the disease worse and more difficult to treat. So in case the child has diarrhea, the child should not eat eggs.
3. Children with diarrhea should eat what?
Children with diarrhea can lead to weight loss and malnutrition. To improve diarrhea, it is necessary to feed children with all the necessary food groups such as starch, fat, protein, vitamins and minerals. Foods that should be given to children when they have diarrhea can be:
Rice flour, potatoes, lean chicken, lean pork, soy milk, cooking oil, carrots, sapodilla and bananas. Continue to breastfeed infants under 6 months of age and increase the number of feedings. Children over 6 months of age, in addition to breast milk, need to give small meals with nutritious foods such as meat, eggs, fish, milk, etc. a little oil and fat to increase energy for the diet. Children should eat foods that are softer, thinner than usual, cooked thoroughly and eaten immediately after cooking to ensure hygiene. Encourage your child to eat as much as possible. Feed your baby 6 times/day or more. Children should eat more ripe fruits or juices such as bananas, oranges, lemons, papaya, mango to increase potassium. Do not use industrial soft drinks to avoid making diarrhea worse. Avoid giving your child foods rich in fiber and foods that are low in nutrients such as raw vegetables and whole grains because they will cause indigestion and force the digestive system to work continuously. Foods high in sugar will also make diarrhea worse. After the diarrhea is completely gone, the mother should give the child an extra meal a day for 2 weeks in a row so that the child can recover quickly and avoid malnutrition. For children with persistent diarrhea, children must eat more than 1 meal a day and last for at least 1 month.
