Newsletter part 4

Description

The Portfolio Component for Health, Safety, and Nutrition is a newsletter.  You are required to develop a 4-page parent newsletter. The fourth page should be a list of references related to the health, safety, and nutrition topics you provided information about on the previous pages of your newsletter.  You should have 3 sections on this page; one for your health, safety, and nutrition topic.  You should have a title for each topic and then provide the relevant references.  You are required to provide at least 3 references where parents can get additional information for each topic.  The references should include local resources, organizations, websites, and/or books where parents can get additional information on each of the topics.  You are required to provide at least one place where parents could walk in the door and talk to a person for each of your topics.  For this resource, you have to provide the name of the resource, local address, phone number, and website. 
You cannot just provide a website address for a resource.  All websites have a name.  You have to provide both the website name and web address.  This goes for both your references on each of your pages and for the additional references that you provide on the fourth page.  

Any information quoted straight from a resource should be properly referenced.  Do not copy information straight from a resource and submit it as your own work.  If you do this, you will receive a 0 for your newsletter.  The newsletter can have slightly larger titles and can contain a small picture per page but the articles should be 12 font and 1.0 spacing.1

Benefits of Plant- Based diet for
children
Plant-based diets have grown in popularity recently, and many parents are now
contemplating them for their kids. Although plant-based diets may offer several advantages,
including a greater intake of fibre and antioxidants, a decreased risk of obesity, and
environmental sustainability, there may also be difficulties and nutritional deficits that parents
should be aware of. Having a greater fibre intake and antioxidants is one of the most
3
important advantages of plant-based diets for kids. High fibre concentrations may be found in
plant-based meals such as fruits, vegetables, whole grains, legumes, and dairy products.
1. Relieving Constipation
Fibre is a necessary ingredient that aids in digestive regulation and prevents
constipation. Moreover, Kiely (2021) and Ma et al. (2023) point out that plant-based diets are
often strong in antioxidants, which may help lower the risk of chronic illnesses, including
heart disease and cancer. Several plant-based foods, such as berries, leafy greens, nuts, and
seeds, contain antioxidants.
2. Decreased risk of obesity
The possibility of a decreased risk of obesity is
another advantage of plant-based diets for kids. This is due
to the fact that plant-based diets often include fewer
calories and saturated fat, which, as highlighted by Kiely,
may aid in preventing weight gain and obesity ( Kiely,
2021). Also, according to Allen and Locasale (2021),
plant-based diets are better for the environment since they use fewer resources like
water and land. This is a crucial factor to consider for parents worried about how their
family’s food choices affect the environment. Parents need to be aware of possible
difficulties and vitamin deficits despite the potential advantages of plant-based meals.
Plant-based diets cannot provide all essential nutrients for developing children,
including protein, iron, calcium, and vitamin B12. Parents should carefully plan a
plant-based diet for their children
to ensure they consume enough vital nutrients.
High protein concentrations, an important ingredient, may be found in animal
products such as meat, poultry, fish, eggs, and dairy. Nevertheless, plant-based protein
4
sources such as beans, lentils, tofu, and tempeh may also provide sufficient quantities of
protein for developing youngsters ( Kiely, 2021). Moreover, plant-based protein sources are
often higher in fibre and lower in saturated fat than animal-based ones, which may have
additional good impacts on health. Another necessary mineral for developing kids is iron,
which aids in the movement of oxygen throughout the body. Although plant-based sources of
iron, such as spinach, lentils, and fortified cereals, may also offer enough iron levels for
developing children, animal products, such as red meat, are a good source of iron ( Müller,
2020). Children on a plant-based diet may need to eat more iron-rich foods to achieve their
daily requirements since the body absorbs iron from plant-based sources less effectively than
from animal sources.
Another necessary vitamin for growing youngsters is calcium, which aids in
developing strong bones and teeth. Although dairy products are a typical source of calcium,
Kiely (2021)points out that plant-based calcium sources such as fortified plant milk, tofu, and
leafy greens may also provide sufficient calcium for growing children. Most animal products
also include vitamin B12, which is essential for the correct functioning of the nervous system.
Children on a plant-based diet may need to take a vitamin B12 supplement to ensure they
receive enough of this crucial mineral, even if there are plant-based sources of vitamin B12,
such as fortified cereals and nutritional yeast.
5
Challenges of Plant-Based Diets
While plant-based diets provide
various benefits, they may also cause
challenges for youngsters.
1.
Protein deficiency.
One potential problem is protein deficiency. As Kiely (2021) highlights, parents need
to ensure that their children obtain appropriate protein from plant-based sources such as
beans, tofu, and nuts. Allen and Locasale (2021) further underline that plant-based diets are
generally lower in several important amino acids necessary for growth and development,
making it even more vital to integrate a spectrum of plant-based protein sources in a child’s
diet.
Nutrient deficits provide another difficulty for kids following plant-based diets. Plantbased diets may be low in key minerals, including calcium, iron, and vitamin B12 (Müller
2020). Children need calcium in particular since it’s essential for healthy bones and teeth
growth. Parents should be cautious when including plant-based milk substitutes in their
child’s diet since they cannot have adequate calcium or other nutrients that are generally
present in cow’s milk (Bodnar, Jimenez, and Baker, 2021). Parents may need to add vitamins
or fortified foods to their child’s diet to ensure they receive enough of these vital elements.
2. Difficulty in planning meals
Planning meals may be difficult while following a plant-based diet. Ma et al. (2023)
point out that greater care must be taken to ensure that youngsters eating plant-based diets
have a balanced and diversified diet. To make sure that their kid is consuming all of the
required nutrients from a range of plant-based sources, parents may need to be creative with
their meal planning. In order to make sure that their kid is receiving all of the nutrients
6
required for optimum growth and development,
Müller (2020) advises parents to speak with a
qualified dietician.
In conclusion, a plant-based diet has
various advantages for kids, such as a greater
intake of fibre and antioxidants, a decreased risk
of obesity, and a more environmentally friendly effect. Parents must be aware of the possible
drawbacks of plant-based meals, such as the risk of protein and vitamin deficits and the need
for cautious meal preparation. Parents may provide their children with a balanced plant-based
diet by ensuring they receive enough protein, important nutrients, and variety. It may be
feasible to ensure that a child’s plant-based diet fully satisfies their nutritional needs by
meeting with a qualified dietitian.
Potential nutrient deficiencies
• Calcium: Leafy greens, tofu, and fortified plant milk are all plant-based sources of this
mineral. These sources might not offer enough calcium for growing children, so that a
supplement might be required.
• Iron: Leafy greens, legumes, and nuts are plant-based sources of iron. Consuming more
iron-rich foods or supplements might be necessary because iron from plant-based sources is
not as easily absorbed as iron from animal sources.
7
• Vitamin B12: Since vitamin B12 is almost exclusively present in animal products, it’s
crucial for kids following a plant-based diet to take a B12 supplement or eat foods that have
been B12-fortified.
Conclusion
Parents should carefully arrange their children’s plant-based diets to ensure they get
enough of all the essential elements. To support their growth and development, children
eating a plant-based diet must acquire adequate protein, calcium, iron, and vitamin B12.
Consulting with a registered dietitian can help ensure that a plant-based diet meets a child’s
nutritional needs.
