Children still consume little dairy products

This was revealed by Danone Ltd. based on the opinion of the National Dietetic Association of Hungary, asking 860 children from national surveyThe survey also pointed out that children's milk consumption is so low that 4 out of 10 children know that at least 0.5 liters per day and 76% of them are also aware that this is important because of their calcium-boosting bones.

Children consume only half the amount of dairy products needed

International and domestic dietary recommendations recommend that both adults and children consume half a liter of milk or their corresponding calcium-containing dairy products. In contrast, in our country, the actual daily consumption of this less than half of the recommendation. Regular consumption of dairy products during childhood is particularly important, as consuming the right amount of calcium can help build bone mass - for example, consuming one cup of yogurt a day can help you get the right amount of calcium. 14% of year-olds eat a glass of yogurt every day, while 42% only 1-2 times a week, 16% just once a week, and 28% even less frequently or not at all.

Kids should know that calcium is important

A large proportion of the children surveyed, 76%, know that regular consumption of milk and dairy products is important because their calcium content strengthens the bones. It is less well known in children that the vitamin D content of dairy products promotes calcium absorption. Only 42% of them know this correctly.However, 45% of children are well aware that at their age they would consume 5 dl of milk or calcium-equivalent dairy products, while 41% of them recommend only 1-2 dl, 15 The survey also pointed out that although children are aware of the positive physiological effects of dairy products, they are not well aware of them; many people do not know which food is made from milk. Only 24% of the children questioned knew that kefir, as well as 24% that it was dense, and just over 21% that fruit yoghurt is dairy-based. "Children are to provide young people with adequate and ongoing knowledge of healthy lifestyles and the importance of balanced diet, "he said.

Danone and the MDOS survey also show that the vast majority of children come three times a day. 77% of the children asked have breakfast, 96% have a proper lunch and 93% have a regular dinner. 59% of the children go out to college and 50% of them go out to school, so every other child has a snack.

It is a welcome fact that more and more children are consciously eating out of school and parenting. Even though 56% of the children surveyed are consuming milk and dairy products because they are delicious, 40% - more and more children - just because they think they are healthy, while 4% of them are consuming these products directly.
