Soy Protein is what is most talked nowadays when it comes to kids diet and health issues. In my last post, I mentioned about Soy Protein and it’s nutritional values.
I was excited and want to know what more I can learn when I received an invite from DuPont for the bloggers meet. It was an insightful session and being a mom I was actually curious to know how it is going to help kids.
The event started with a great note with Mr. Indranil Chatterjee, Regional Product Line Manager, DuPont Nutrition & Health Protein Solution for South Asia and South East Asia. He shared insightful benefits and values what soy protein is actually which is very much not known to us.
What is Soy Protein?
As it is a superior plant based it is a high-quality source of protein. I learned that research tells that if we include more plant protein in our diet, as opposed to more carbohydrate, we can be benefited with cardiovascular like lowering blood pressure.
Now that makes me more curious to know how it is beneficial for kids.
Ms. Jean Heggie, Strategic Marketing lead, DuPont Nutrition and health, Protein Solution, explained that Soy protein is beneficial to every age group and we should include it our meals and diets.
Before I tell why and how can we make our kids get benefited by this Soy protein check out this video which explains how soy protein is an economical and reliable alternative to meat and dairy proteins.
Soy Protein and Kids
Some points which will really with this soy protein in kids health:
- It helps in weight management: Now kids tend to junk foods and outside food. I don’t feel it bad but yes, It’s in our hands how we give them a healthy diet and a healthy life.
Not only kids but they are beneficial for aging people too who are struggling with weight loss. As I always say, old age is second childhood and with aging, we tend to have a short-term appetite, fat loss, and decreasing calories intake. So intake of soy protein will help in maintaining a healthy body composition.
- As for development and growth, we need nutrients like calcium, zinc, iron, and folate which soy provides.
- Most kids are milk protein allergy, lactose intolerance, or religious/cultural food practices that prohibit milk consumption can intake calcium, vitamin D, vitamin A, and high-quality protein from fortified soymilk.
What we are giving our family with Soy protein is a good healthy life. Add soy protein in your family diet not only to kids diet as it is beneficial for any age group and give them a healthy life.
