Diet for a baby

Diet in infants can be given at the 17-month-old baby and above. A diet that can be treated include:
  1. Gluten and Casein-free diet. This diet begins with avoiding all products that contain gluten, such as biscuits, noodles, bread and other food containers made from wheat. Casein is usually obtained from food or beverages that contain cow's milk, like cheese, mozzarella, butter, or candy.
  2. Sugar-free diet. How that is done is by limiting the intake of pure sugar for the baby. This intake comes primarily from sugar, syrup, carbonated beverages, and fruit juice in containers. Instead, use stevia and xylitol sugar alternately for the baby. If both types of sugar are not available, you can replace it by using corn sugar or sorbitol.
  3. Fungus-free diet. This diet aims to prevent fungal infections in the intestines of the baby. Consistent with the name, all kinds of foods processed with fermentation processes, such as soy sauce, Tauco, cheese, and cakes made by using soda developer, vermipan, or the like, not given to the baby. Likewise with food that had been stored, or dried fruits.
  4. Phenol and salicylate-free diet. Phenols contained in brightly colored fruits such as grapes, cherries, prunes, plums, apples, almonds, and others. While salicylate found in oranges and tomatoes. Bright colors on papaya, mango, beets, and carrots, not a phenol, but beta-carotene, which may be consumed by the baby.
  5. Rotation and elimination diets. Foods with high lgG results (marked with two or three stars) is not given to baby, such as wheat, cow's milk, and broccoli. For the low lgG (marked with one star) remains given to the baby, with a rotation diet at least for four days.
