<div class="quote-block">Lactose-Intolerant Kids Need Dairy<br><br>
Dairy Foods Still Necessary For Strong Bones, Pediatric Group Says<br><br><br><br>
Most children who are lactose intolerant can and should eat some dairy foods to ensure they get enough calcium and vitamin D, the nation's leading pediatric group says.<br><br><br><br>
In a report published today, the Committee on Nutrition for the American Academy of Pediatrics recommends against eliminating dairy products as the primary treatment for lactose intolerance. The condition is extremely common among many racial and ethnic groups, including Asians, Native Americans, Hispanics, and blacks.<br><br><br><br>
...<br><br><br><br>
Although it is possible for children to get the calcium they need for strong bones without dairy, it isn't easy.<br><br><br><br>
Broccoli, brussels sprouts, dried figs, and sardines are among the most calcium-rich nondairy foods -- but good luck getting the typical child to eat them.<br><br><br><br>
Calcium-fortified cereals and orange juice may be a more realistic option. But the AAP has also warned parents to limit fruit juices, which contain a lot of sugar.<br></div>

I hate how the dairy industry has brainwashed people into thinking they have to have dairy to have good bones. What a lie. Humans are such odd creatures in the fact that we are the only species to have milk past infancy-and it's milk of another species! How natural could that possibly be? What would we do without those cows to keep our bones healthy and strong? I mean, our mothers milk was just not enough for us and we need to rely on another species to provide our calcium. I hope those adults cows don't have any bone problems, since they have been weaned off their mothers milk since being calves.<br><br><br><br>
OK, that was my sarcastic rant for the day. Felt nice.

I see it as an education issue-- not a brainwashing issue. Just because something is not what you believe, dosent make it propaganda. There are people out there who have not read a book or artical past high school, or who have never read or listened to a health related topic in whatever media form-- it dosen't intrest them, its silly, they don't care. There are others who go off on a crazy fad diet where major food groups are ommitted (definition of a crazy diet) and then whine when they find they have a diet related disease, and say they were never told. I get really angry when I see a four hundred pound mother giving her two hundred pound children candy bars for lunch-- these are the people who need to be told what to eat-- because they have no clue-- And it needs to be in the simplest form of information transmittal, and it needs to be in a form that they will use.

I think the root of the problem is that so many parents don't teach their children to eat fresh vegetables, and it's so endemic that it's just accepted that children won't eat vegetables, as acknowledged in that article. If they won't eat vegetables, of course they have to get their calcium somewhere else.<br><br><br><br>
And of course they didn't mention that calcium-set tofu, fortified soymilk, and many greens are also excellent sources.

<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/furious.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":furious:"> That article is Horse****... need dairy for calcium. Yeah... right.<br><br><br><br>
Real truth: Dairy LEACHES calcium from your bones b/c the phosphorus level is so high that it takes the calcium out in order to process it from the body.<br><br><br><br>
I detest the dairy industry. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/rifle.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":gun:"> and *I* grew UP on a DAIRY FARM.<br><br><br><br>
My whole family is allergic to dairy. (big surprise)<br><br><br><br>
There are certain heart conditions that dairy is the CAUSE. (This is known by medical experts.) If I eat dairy, my heart starts "acting up". (Besides the HORRID migraines I get from it.) [Of course, I never ever eat it.]<br><br><br><br>
Dairy is the root of a whole host of health problems. In most cases those who are asthmatic if they COMPLETELY eliminate dairy from their diets, 80% experience cessation of any symptoms.<br><br><br><br>
I could go on and on... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/mad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":mad:"><br><br><br><br>
And the real cake topper is get your 3 servings a day in order to lose weight. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/whack.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":whack:"> What a HUGE disserve to the public. First off, anybody who eats dairy on the daily basis is already GETTING their 3 servings and in many cases a lot more than that! Next, dairy does NOT help in losing weight (they used a paid study in which they skewed the results on purpose). It does quite the opposite. It will help you to GAIN it. *sigh* <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/inquisitive.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":stinkeye:"><br><br><br><br>
Oh and eating more of it to build up your tolerance is also HS. Your body will continue to react in a variety of ways that after a while, you won't notice how bad you feel b/c you feel bad ALL OF THE TIME and won't know any better. (There's also a whole naturopathic thought process on this that I don't have the time to post right now.)<br><br><br><br>
I gotta stop now b/c this is one of those highly touchy subjects for me. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/brood.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":brood:">

I like the "Broccoli, brussels sprouts, dried figs, and sardines are among the most calcium-rich nondairy foods -- but good luck getting the typical child to eat them." line.<br><br><br><br>
Um, I've never, ever had problems getting my kids to eat vegetables and my kids weren't even raised vegetarian.<br><br><br><br>
I also don't get why they insist you need dairy for vitamin D. Um, milk is enriched with vitamin D. It didn't get there by itself. All you need to get enough vitamin D is 15 minutes of sunlight a day. Kids should be getting that from recess at school at the very least.<br><br><br><br>
They also didn't mention that almost every brand of non-dairy milk is enriched with calcium and vitamin D so you get all of the supposed benefits of milk without the animal fat and cholesterol.

You were actually correct. They do need to build up a tolerance to it. I actually have my 1 year old drink directly from a cow's teat daily. By the time he's 5 he should be good to go!

If kids are going to eat vegetables, their parents should show them how it's done. Lots of adults don't like brocolli or brussel sprouts. Monkey see, monkey do.<br><br><br><br>
It's not always as easy as that, though.

I blame my husband's dislike of most vegetables on his parents. You wouldn't believe the atrocities my mother-in-law inflicts on poor defensless veggies.

You're totally doing double duty. Building up your kid's tolerance to another species' breast milk, AND spending quality time with an animal. That's fantastic! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/thumbsup.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":up:"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p">

(from article). Hm, that's funny, I've been doing it without much struggle for several years now. I'm quite disappointed that the AAP would make such a statement.<br><br><br><br><div class="quote-container"><span>Quote:</span>

Heh. I was watching that Supernanny show last week (I know, I know), and one of the goals was to get the kids to eat better food. They show the mom sitting at the table with a couple of kids, who are picking at their food. The nanny chick is watching off camera, but then she sneaks in and adds some broccoli to the mom's plate too, saying something like "here you go, mom, you forgot to give yourself some of this delicious broccoli". *chuckle*<br><br><br><br>
Now, I wonder if all of these little kids are going to be subjected to stomachaches becasue they "have to have dairy". Grr. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/mad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":mad:">

Hey sweetie,<br><br><br><br>
My post wasn't directed to you at all! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"> Sorry if you took it that way... in fact, I didn't even read yours till a little while ago.<br><br><br><br>
I was just going "off" on the article and it got expanded cuz the dairy industry is one of my pet peeves (well, perhaps a little more than a peeve, I s'pose. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/blush.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":eek:"> ) ... so once I starting ranting on one part, I just keep going. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p">

They usually just have lactose intolerant people take a pill that helps them digest it better. Sad huh.<br><br><br><br>
When will people get a clue that humans were not meant to have milk past infancy, especially milk of another species? That's why so many people get sick when they have dairy because it was not meant for us and our bodies are not designed to take it. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/doh.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":doh:">

My niece is lactose intolerant. Her parents give her the nonlactose milk instead of soy milk. I have no idea why. They ***** about how expensive it is and it would be cheaper for them to use the soy milk. At least I got her to develop a taste for vegetables when I used to babysit her.
