Hello.. I wish to start with a very important update today..
It’s about – ‘CALCIUM’
There r lots of sub-topics..
*Sources of calcium,
*Signs of deficiency,
*Who requires more calcium,
*Myths about calcium…
It’s difficult to cover all of them in one post.. So I have divided it in 3 parts. (Plz read it in order)
Today we.ll talk about – ‘ Sources of Calcium ‘
1. Nachni is the richest source of Calcium.
Six Nachni roti in a week, can take care of 60-80% of your calcium requirement.
[Plz don’t eat Nachni chips or biscuits]
Nachni ki Goad papdi (Gujarati sweet) or laddu is also good.
Kids should be given Nachni almost everyday till atleast 12-15yrs of their age.
One Nachni roti is equal to 3 glasses of milk (for calcium content)
2. Milk and milk products.
Milk, Curd, lassi are rich sources.
Avoid paneer and cheese. They r rich in calcium but also have high fat content.
Try and make use of pulses often.
Different daals, Khichdi, Chole, rajma, Ragda in pani puri, chana chaat, daal dhokli etc are highly nutritious.
4. Dark green leafy veg – Palak, Coriander, Brocolli.
(But these are unhygenic to eat in rainy season)
5. Nuts – Almond, Walnut.
Oil seeds – Til, flax seeds (but should be avoided for overweight people, it has high calories)
Til ki chikki is extremely health for a growing child.
(I will be writing a seperate post for diet of children)
Thats it for today. Please make a note of all the sources. They are easily available and can be added to your daily diet.
Nachni is the most imp thing.
[Myth Buster – Bananas are not a good source of Calcium..
They are a rich source of Potassium and Magnesium..]
Hope u liked the post..
Be healthy.. Keep smiling.
