The report, which is based on a national survey, found that 32 percent of children ages 2-19 years old between 2009 and 2012, on any day ate nuts.
The children were from a single product that ate nuts, seeds, or about 40 percent of peanut butter. Consume about 34 percent nuts breads, cakes, cereals and cereal-based foods were the elements like nutrition bars, candy bars, and 19 percent were in the elements, the study found.
Experts say that this is good news about nuts, as long as the calls are not part of the crazy junk food.
Including nuts in the diet of children “may be a good thing, provided the ways in which it is included, as is healthy in nuts,” the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention study co-author Kirsten Herrick, said about nuts.
Nuts can be a source of protein and “good” fats and are high in fiber nuts, the researchers said. Some nuts, like walnuts and pumpkin seeds, also are good sources of omega-3 fatty acids, the researchers said about nuts.
Stephanie Quirantes, Miami Children’s Hospital Nicklaus was not involved in the study of nuts, a nutrition expert said he was “pleasantly surprised” by the findings, especially the feeling that the majority of the nuts consumed by children like seeds single products are.
“You usually children, nuts on snacking [but] not see that an alternative source of protein for them is a great way to get nuts,” Quirantes said about nuts.
Some have suggested that the increase in nuts allergies in children to feed their children, some parents may feel crazy about nuts. Although more studies are eating nuts at children, to see if the time is needed, Quirantes part of the study of nuts, children from asylum actually more than he had expected. “I feel as frightened as we may have thought they would not [parents],” Quirantes said about nuts.
Even at high risk for developing nuts allergies among children – – In fact, early in life, the lack of evidence showing that exposure to nuts increases the risk of allergy leads. In fact, recent studies suggest the opposite: a study published last year found that, if infants are at high risk for peanut allergy, peanut butter, feeding them can protect them from developing allergies.
Keep in mind about nuts, however, that even though nuts are nutritious, nuts are high in calories and, as such, should be eaten in moderation are important, Quirantes said about nuts.
