Some people absolutely can not tolerate natural curd. However, even those who can not stand the taste of dairy products will want to eat ruddy and sweet cheesecakes. Cheesecakes are quite popular among adults and children. At the same time, many lactating women often think about whether they can use cheesecakes during breastfeeding? How much cottage cheese in this form can be useful for a newborn baby?
About the beneficial and harmful properties of cheesecakes
It is known that the composition of the classic dish includes: eggs, sugar, flour, some salt, semolina and cottage cheese. The number of ingredients contained in the cheese cakes can not greatly harm a woman during lactation.
Cottage cheese is considered the main ingredient of cheesecakes. It is very beneficial for the health of lactating women. As part of the curd there is useful calcium, which helps to restore the bones, teeth, nail plates and hair to women in the postpartum period. Indeed, during pregnancy, a woman in labor loses most of the calcium in the body, so after delivery, it is required to fill the body with this useful trace element. Due to the fact that calcium enters the mother's milk, strengthen the bones of the child.
The cottage cheese contains "coagulated" milk protein, which in this state is not an allergen to the newborn baby. Therefore, dishes made from cottage cheese, easily digested by the body of infants. Food consisting of protein is a very important component for the health of a woman and her baby during breastfeeding. This protein becomes an important building foundation for the proper functioning of the body. In addition, the nutrients contained in the curd, help speed up the metabolic processes in a woman's body.
However, it is important to remember that nursing mothers can not eat only one cottage cheese. It is useful for the health of a woman, but is not able to replace all the essential needs of the mother in vitamins and trace elements. Cheesecakes can be an excellent wholesome dish that will help diversify the mother's diet. But do not forget about a balanced diet of breastfeeding women. Therefore, it is important that the composition of the menu women included both animal and vegetable proteins. It is also important to eat fruits and vegetables, lean types of meat and fish.
Few people know that cottage cheese has an increased diuretic effect. If the mother's body suffers from edema, then the curd can be beneficial. In this case, doctors do not advise to use a lot of cottage cheese for women with problems of the urinary system and kidneys. An excess of animal protein in the body can cause calcium leaching from the body. This increases the load on the kidneys.
Eggs, flour and semolina
Nutritionists recommend lactating women to avoid eating eggs in the first months of growth of the baby. The fact is that eggs are considered to be a strong allergen for the baby’s body. Therefore, before it introduces cheesecakes as a new dish into the diet of a nursing woman, it is worth trying each ingredient in advance. A mother in labor can afford to eat half a boiled egg in the morning for the first few days. And observe the behavior of the body of the baby gradually. If the baby is not allergic to eggs, then you can safely add them to your favorite foods.
As for flour and semolina, the basis of these products contains wheat, as well as protein - gluten. Unfortunately, this component can not be absorbed by every organism, but its intolerance by the organism is a rarity. Nevertheless, it’s not worthwhile to exclude a child’s negative reaction to gluten. As a rule, nutritionists advise to add products containing this protein to the dishes of a nursing mother only after the second or third month of the baby’s life. Although the content of these croup is quite small in relation to the curd, therefore, it is possible to exclude the negative reaction of the baby’s body to semolina and flour.
The main thing is to comply with the recipe during cooking and not to put too much flour or semolina. Nevertheless, caution should be exercised in this matter, especially in the first month of the life of the little crumbs.
For the preparation of cheesecakes, breastfeeding mothers best to use flour of the highest grade, it has more useful properties. This flour does not undergo chemical refining and bleaching, as more of its cheaper varieties. But the harmful components that are contained in cheap flour, can penetrate into the body of the baby along with mother's milk and cause him harm. Therefore, if a woman decides to treat herself with delicious cheesecakes during lactation, it is important to choose only quality ingredients that do not harm the health of the mother and child.
