”Eat eggs are hot. If the child has a fever, they can’t eat eggs.” Some parents think that the egg protein content is high. When the child has a fever, it is easy to increase the body’s basal metabolic rate. Not only can the body temperature be lowered, but the body heat will be increased. It is not conducive to the recovery of the disease. In addition, eating eggs when you have a fever will not digest. Is the truth really like this? Why do eggs with higher nutritional value be “shot”?
Thermal effects have little effect on young children
Eating eggs fever is caused by the thermal effects of food. Food heat effect refers to the additional energy consumed by nutrients in food during digestion, absorption, metabolism and storage.
It is not just eggs that produce heat. All the food we eat, such as rice, meat, vegetables, fruits, etc., has a thermal effect, but the food with more protein produces a higher thermal effect. So, how much thermal effect can you produce by eating an egg? 12.8 kcal. This extra increase in calories has little effect on the body temperature of our adults and has little effect on young children.
Therefore, children can eat eggs when they have a fever.
Eating eggs when you have a fever is good for your health.
Eggs are rich in high-quality protein, and their digestibility is as high as 98%. It is used as a reference protein in nutrition to evaluate the protein nutritional value of other foods. When the fever is accelerated, the body’s metabolism is accelerated, and the decomposition of protein in the body is accelerated. It is necessary to promptly replenish high-quality protein that is easily digested and absorbed. Eggs are a better choice.
Eggs are rich in calcium, phosphorus, iron,
vitamins A, D, E and B vitamins. When you have fever, the amount of B vitamins in the human body is greatly increased due to the use of water, urination, and perspiration. At the same time, the metabolism of drugs after taking various drugs also requires the consumption of B vitamins. At this time, eat eggs, you can add vitamins in time. Egg yolk is rich in lecithin and steroids, which is also beneficial to the development of cranial nerves and optic nerves in children.
It can be seen that eating a proper amount of eggs during a fever is helpful to the child.
Boiled eggs have the highest nutritional value
As long as there is no need to fry and fry, one egg per day will not burden the digestive system of children with colds.
If the intake of nutrients such as protein is insufficient for a long time, it will also reduce the child’s resistance and is not conducive to recovery. Of course, not all children can eat eggs.
Some children want to avoid eggs
Allergic diseases such as purpuric nephritis ban eggs during the onset of the disease to avoid allergies or aggravate allergy symptoms.
A child who is allergic to eggs. In addition to not eating eggs, even some foods that add eggs, such as pastries, egg rolls, bread, biscuits, etc., need to be avoided.
Children with severe diarrhea should not eat eggs.
Several misunderstandings about eggs
The color of the eggshell is related to the level of nutrition. wrong!
What determines the color of the eggshell is a substance called porphyrin. The color of the eggshell is different, mostly because of the different varieties of chicken, and has nothing to do with the nutritional value of the egg. You don’t need to care about red or white when you buy eggs. It is the diet structure of the chicken that determines the nutritional value of the egg. That is to say, if the diet structure of the chicken is reasonable and the nutrition is balanced, the content of vitamins and minerals in the eggs will be better. Therefore, the quality of eggs purchased from regular farms is more guaranteed.
Eggs and soy milk can’t be eaten together. wrong!
Soybeans are foods with high nutritional value, but there are also some special substances that affect the absorption of nutrients. For example, protease inhibitors are typical representatives, which will affect the digestion and absorption of other food proteins. However, the protease inhibitors in processed soy milk and tofu will be destroyed, and it will not be a problem to eat with eggs.
Earth eggs have higher nutritional value than foreign eggs. wrong!
Native chicken is a free-range chicken with no special feed, mainly worms, vegetables and weeds. Many people think that earth eggs should be better than the “foreign eggs” that are kept in the chicken farm and eat feed. However, the test data does not support this speculation! The difference in nutrients between the two eggs is not great. Don’t be superstitious about earth eggs.
