5 IMPORTANT NEEDS OF CALCIUM FOR CHILDREN DEVELOPMENT
Hi Prochiz Lovers! How are you doing these days? Today Prochiz wants to share Trivia. Did you know Prochiz Lovers, Dr. Saptawati Bardosono, MSc, Secretary of the Central Board of the Indonesian Medical Nutrition Doctors Association said that there is calcium deficiency in Indonesian children. In fact, the percentage is quite large, as many as 80% of children aged 6 – 12 years do not meet their requirements of calcium intake. In fact, calcium has a major role in supporting the growth and development of their bones.
What are the benefits of calcium for your little one’s growth and development?
- Blood clotting process
During their active age, it is no wonder that children often play a lot, so there is a higher chance of them falling and getting hurt. When an accident occurs and the child loses blood, calcium plays an important role in the blood clotting process.
- Child intelligence
Nerves carry messages that are transmitted throughout all body parts. In this process, healthy nerve system can quickly receive information for the child. Calcium plays an important role in how the nerve system works.
- Immune system
Children who have good calcium intake, are not susceptible to diseases. This is because calcium plays an important role in maintaining children’s immunity. When the child has high calcium intake, the child becomes stronger, motivated, and do not easily get sick.
- Prevents bone loss in the future.
99% of calcium contains hard tissue of bones and teeth. Therefore, if the body has calcium deficiency, the body will then take calcium from the bones. Bones became a reserve for calcium availability, and if this continues for a long time, bone loss will start to occur. Therefore, it is very important to maintain calcium intake in the child’s body to avoid bone loss in the future.
- Optimize height
Calcium is the main nutrient in bone growth. For optimal bone growth, consuming foods that are high in calcium is highly recommended.
Well Prochiz Lovers, cheese contains a high source of calcium which is highly recommended. Because cheese is derived from milk, or processed products from milk, the nutritional content in cheese is not much different from the nutrients possessed by milk, namely calcium, sodium, phosphorus, potassium, and iron.
