Dietary Needs for Kids With Cerebral Palsy



Kids with cerebral palsy (CP) have problems with their muscle tone, movement, and/or motor skills. This can make mealtimes challenging.

Some kids may not have the coordination to feed themselves or chew and swallow safely or successfully. Digestive problems like gastroesophageal reflux and constipation can make eating uncomfortable. All of this can make it hard for kids to get enough to eat — and that can lead to poor growth or malnutrition.

But with the right DIET and FEEDING TECHNIQUES, many kids with CP can learn to love mealtimes, feel satisfied, and get the nutrients they need to thrive.

What Nutrients Does My Child Need?

Kids with CP need good nutrition and healthy foods just like other kids do. But sometimes, they might need more or fewer calories depending on their activity level and muscle tone (how "tense" their muscles are at rest). For example, a child with high muscle tone and a higher physical activity level will use more energy and need to eat more than a child with low muscle tone and a lower activity level.

Kids who are less active and have trouble getting enough nutrients in their diet due to feeding problems are more likely to have weak, brittle bones (low bone density). This makes their bones more likely to fracture, or break.

To help keep bones strong, kids with CP need to get enough of these three nutrients:

Calcium, a mineral that supports bone and tooth structure and function. Best sources of this include milk, yogurt, and cheese.

Vitamin D, a vitamin that helps the body absorb calcium from food and supplements. It's found in salmon, tuna, fish liver oil, and fortified products like milk, orange juice, and cereal. Our bodies also make vitamin D when skin that is not protected by clothes or sunscreen is exposed to the sun.

Phosphorus, a mineral that plays a role in the formation of bones and teeth. It's found in dairy products, fish, eggs, poultry, nuts, and whole grains.

Other important minerals for bone health include magnesium, copper, zinc, and manganese. These are needed in small amounts and are readily available in beans, vegetables, and other foods. Many kids get enough of these nutrients in their regular diets.

Is My Child Getting Enough Nutrients?

The care team — which may include the doctor and a dietitian, speech-language therapist, and occupational therapist — can make sure that your child is getting the nutrients needed.

They will ask for a detailed food record of what your child eats, including any formulas or puréed meals. Then, depending on your child's age, height, weight, growth trend, and physical activity level, they can see whether your child is getting the right amount of calories, protein, vitamins, minerals, and fluids. They'll make a customized dietary plan from this information, which will help you make sure that your child isn't overfed or underfed.

Your child's diet will be monitored at follow-up doctors' visits. If your child isn't keeping a healthy weight or getting the right nutrition, the feeding plan can be modified. Kids' nutritional needs change as they get older, so it's important to follow up with your care team regularly as your child grows.

Supplementation Programmes and Herbal Alternatives

Sometimes a child with CP can't eat enough to get all the nutrients needed. In these cases, doctors recommend formulas or other types of supplements. Formula can be added to the diet to boost energy and protein amounts, along with vitamins and minerals. Formulas come pre-mixed in a bottle or as a powder to be mixed with milk or water. Several different formulas are available for different dietary needs.

Some kids might need supplements to get more of individual nutrients, such as calcium and vitamin D, if they don't get enough from their diet and have a nutritional deficiency. Vitamin and mineral supplements come in a few different forms (like liquid or chewable tablets).

Children who have problems swallowing may need thickeners added to their food and beverages to help them swallow safely. A speech-language therapist can help determine if your child needs a thickener, and if so, find the right texture and consistency for the food that your child needs to swallow.

Tube Feeding

Feeding tubes that are placed in the nose or stomach allow food to be ingested without having to be chewed or swallowed.

Deciding on a feeding tube is usually a difficult decision for parents. Naturally, parents want their child to continue eating by mouth, like other kids. However, for some kids with CP, it's not safe to continue eating by mouth. Kids who have trouble chewing or swallowing can get food in their airways or lungs, and this can cause respiratory illness. In this situation, feedings by mouth would need to be stopped and tube feeding would begin.

Tube feeding also might be a good idea for kids who can eat safely, but just aren't able to eat enough by mouth (even with supplements) to maintain a healthy weight. In these cases, tube feeding might be added as a supplement to the child's regular mealtime routine.

Tube feeding can make mealtimes easier for kids and their caregivers. Mealtimes are less stressful and more enjoyable for kids who have trouble eating, while their caregivers know that the child is safely getting the nutrition needed.

A child's tube can be placed through the nose to reach the stomach (used for short-term feeding support), or it can go directly through a port on the belly and into the stomach (used for long-term feeding support). Complete, nutritionally balanced formulas or puréed meals fed through a tube can ensure that kids get enough calories and the nutrition needed to grow and maintain a healthy weight, while also getting enough fluids to stay hydrated.

Diet and Lifestyle are Critically Important to HEALTH AND LONGEVITY


Let's look at new evidence highlighting the importance of nutrition to our health and wellbeing. Currently, there exists a “silent epidemic” of chronic diseases and obesity, affecting men, women and children in all segments of our society. The World Health Organization (WHO) released a landmark report in 2005 entitled “Chronic Disease:

A Vital Investment” which focuses on the dire state of global health. It found that these preventable diseases are the leading causes of mortality in the world and the number of people affected by them continues to grow year after year. Look around you and you will agree to this fact that we all all vulnerable to these "chronic diseases" due to what we eat majorly.


Chronic diseases accounts for approximately 60% of all deaths worldwide. Of those who die from a chronic disease, half are under the age of 70, and half are women. Sadly, chronic diseases (which include heart disease, stroke, cancer, obesity, chronic respiratory diseases and diabetes), are all largely preventable.

The WHO and other global health authorities have identified that in order to combat this epidemic, diet improvements and lifestyle changes need to be made. They recommend a solid nutritional foundation as one of the key tools in the pursuit of health, vitality and functional longevity, and in the fight against chronic diseases.

FACTOID:
Medical expenditures for cancer could reach as high as $158 billion in 2020 in the United States, a 27% increase from 2010.
Diabetes & Risk Reduction.

According to statistics from the World Health Organization (WHO), diabetes affects about 220 million people worldwide, and the rate of deaths from diabetes and it's complications will double between 2005 and 2030. 90% of those with diabetes have type 2 diabetes, which has been attributed to excess body weight gain and a lack of physical activity/exercise. Because these factors can be modified by deliberate lifestyle changes such as becoming more physically active and eating a healthy diet rich in fruits and vegetables, type 2 diabetes is largely preventable.

Do you currently know your sugar consumption rate? Have you ever gone to check your blood sugar in a clinic? Do you take more than one bottle of softdrinks every single day?

Have you heard or are you aware we have approximately 12 cubes of refined sugar in a bottle of most soft drinks? See our statistics: If you consume a bottle of soft drink which contains 12 cubes of refined sugaar plus caffeine for a week; you had unconsciously taken in 84 cubes of sugar.

Do you this is very unhealthy to your digestive and body system? Have you sometimes see yourself unable to see clearly as before? Do you experince quick ejaculation(man) or abdomenal pains(woman) during your cycle periods?

Excess deposits of these refined sugar can lead to; you experiencing low libido, weak erection, infections, blurred vision, becoming obese, exposing some vital organs to pre-cancerous environment, piles or stomach upsets.

FRUITS AND VEGETABLES IS KEY TO RICH NUTRITION
Highlighting the importance of specific key nutrients in preventing diabetes and it's related complications. Scientists evaluated the impact of vegetable intake on type 2 diabetes prevention.

They found that increased intakes of green leafy vegetables resulted in a 15% reduction in disease risk. These results seem to suggest an association between protective benefits and the antioxidant capacity of various compounds like betacarotene, vitamin C, polyphenols and magnesium, however more investigation is needed to determine the mechanism of action.

BENEFITS OF MAGNESIUM
In another study, the role of magnesium in diabetic patients. Researchers found that 82% of the study population was deficient in magnesium, which can potentially increase the risk of other complications associated with the disease.

The importance of magnesium in regulating many essential cellular reactions and functions, especially in metabolism is
well established. This study looked in particular at the long-term effects of hyperglycaemia (high blood sugar) on magnesium loss in patients with Type 2 diabetes. Magnesium is a vital micronutrient in the activation of insulin and is an important component of insulin function. Preliminary data suggests that hyperglycaemia could lead to impaired kidney function and excessive magnesium loss in the urine, which in turn could induce a rise in glucose in the blood. This study further substantiates the importance of maintaining adequate magnesium levels in diabetic patients.

FACTOID:
A recent study published in the journal Diabetes Care found that people who consumed between one to two daily servings of sugar-sweetened beverages, snacks or even breads had a 20% greater risk of developing metabolic syndrome and a 26% greater risk of developing Type 2 diabetes, compared to those who consumed none or less than one serving per month.

SUPER GRO ORGANIC FERTILIZER


Super Gro is a very wonderful natural liquid fertilizer which has now been brought to your doorstep to ensure the enhancement of your crops and agricultural productivity both in quality and quantity. It is a natural fertilizer that will increase your agricultural yield more than three times of what you do obtain from that of synthetic or chemical fertilizer that you are used to.

Super Gro is a product of GNLD, a company that specializes in natural and nutritional health products for human and plants. It has been a wonderful experience for the users of these fantastic products.
Super Gro is a 100% organic liquid fertilizer, which is made from poultry droppings and sea bird guano. Being made from organic matter with absolutely no chemicals added to it, it is 100% safe to use on any vegetables and of course the rest of your garden. Super Gro can be applied to any plant, tree, vegetable and even grass that require fertilization.
Super Gro was started about fifteen years ago on the West Coast of South Africa. Its main ingredient being seabird guano gets collected from eight different sites along the West Coast under supervision of the South African Nature Conservation, to ensure that all of the birds and their nesting sites stay protected and minimal disturbance takes place. After the guano is dried


Tests done on this product reflect the following composition of macro and micro elements;
• Nitrogen (N) 72g per litre (Macro)
• Phosphorus (P) 45g per litre (Macro)
• Potassium (K) 30g per litre (Macro)
• Sulphur (S) 15g per litre (Macro)
• Calcium (CA) 9g per litre (Macro)
• Magnesium (MG) 7g per litre (Macro)
• Iron (FE) 5mg per litre (Micro)
• Iodine (IoD) 3mg per litre (Micro)
• Marine Salt (MS) 1mg per litre (Micro)
• Zinc (Zn) 1mg per litre (Micro)

The beauty of Super Gro is that it is devoid of chemicals or synthetic substances which have made it to be safer for human health because it has no chemical residue that could remain in the agriculture produce which could put human life in grave jeopardy in the process of consumption. It does not also have any chemical substance therein that could subsequently destroy the soil. Super Gro has numerous advantages over the synthetic or chemical fertilizer.

Super Gro, as the name suggests, is the most wonderful natural liquid fertilizer ever produced for agro industry. It is meant for the purpose of growing crops and plants in order to add much value to them. This is to ensure that agricultural productivity is enhanced both in quality and in quantity. Super Gro Liquid Fertilizer being natural in essence means that it is devoid of chemical input which makes it different from the conventional chemical fertilizer that we all know. The advantages of Super Gro Natural Liquid Fertilizer over the Chemical Fertilizer are numerous and very great.

Because crops and plants depend so much on water, Super Gro is meant to improve the quality and quantity of water as required by these crops and plants for wonderful growth and production by adding the essential nutrients they require for that purpose. No wonder, Super Gro helps you make the most use of water: water, one of the basic fundamentals of life itself. Water, good quality water, is an issue of such importance that governments, states, provinces and major suburban areas around the world have created agencies to ensure its long-term availability.

As our global population grows, water will become an even greater concern to everyone because of its importance in our daily life most especially for the production of food. Bearing this in mind, it therefore, becomes much essential that we all should also be much concerned about improving the quantity and quality of water to ensure its most efficient use. Drought or otherwise, we should always try to get the most efficient use from water.


This is one of the reasons why agricultural industry must not underestimate the constant use of this wonderful product - Super Gro.

Functions of Super Gro
GNLD's Super Gro acts as both an adjuvant and a surfactant, by reducing the surface tension of water in addition to acting as a wetting agent. Adjuvants are agents designed to aid in substances' action. GNLD Super Gro helps make water "wetter" by reducing its surface tension. It may seem contradictory, but water does not always "wet" very well except when Super Gro is added. Often it tends to bead up on the waxy surfaces of plants, crops, lawns and gardens, and before it has a chance to penetrate, it runs off or evaporates. GNLD's Super Gro helps conserve water. It tends to increase the rate at which water penetrates common soils.

Surfactants are wetting agents that are used in several ways:
As emulsifiers to disperse oils.
As wetting agents, to lower surface tension.
As dispersing agents, to reduce adhesion between particles of chemicals, so
they will spread and remain in solution longer.

Features of Super Gro
Super Gro is a multi-purpose surfactant.
It makes water "wetter".
Specifically formulated to be effective, economical and versatile.
Easy to use.
Long shelf life.


Tolerates extreme temperature variations.
Safe to use indoors and outdoors.
Non-toxic, non-caustic and non-flammable.
It improves the absorption of nutrients.
Farming should be more of good harvests and better sales!
