Quantity Calcium in Child's Food
Calcium in children's food!
Potassium is needed for the good health of children. In this article, we will show you how much potassium your child needs, the best foods containing potassium, and can children with potassium be overdosed.

Why potassium is important for children?
Potassium combined with sodium controls the water balance in the body, which in turn maintains normal blood pressure in the body. Doctors have found that maintaining unintentionally often through diet low in potassium and high in sodium is a factor in the production of high blood pressure. Potassium also helps in muscle function and heart rhythm, and in later stages of life can reduce the risk of kidney stones and osteoporosis.

What is the amount of potassium needed for children?
- From 1 to 3 years: 3000 mg per day
- From 4 to 8 years of age: 3800 mg per day
You can track the average daily amount of potassium if it is in these ranges within a few days or a week rather than every day - it will be easier for you!

Good sources of potassium
Fresh fruits and vegetables are a great source of potassium. Milk, meat and cereals also contain potassium, but it is not as easy to absorb from these sources. Some of the best sources

1/2 medium roasted potato: 463 mg
1/2 cup of plum juice: 352 mg
1/4 cup dried prunes: 318 mg
1/4 cup of raisins: 299 mg
1/2 cup of tomato juice: 278 mg
1/4 cup white beans: 251 mg
1/2 glass of orange juice: 248 mg
1/4 cup beans Lima: 242 mg
30 grams of sunflower seeds: 241 milligrams
1/2 banana: 211 mg
1/4 cup boiled spinach: 210 mg
1/2 cup of melon: 208 mg
30 grams of almonds: 200 milligrams
1/2 medium tomato: 146 mg
1/2 cup of bran and cereals with raisins: 181 mg
1/2 cup of watermelon: 85 mg

The amount of potassium may vary depending on the manufacturer, the quality and the shelf life. Keep in mind that some small products like nuts can cause choking and choking for young children. The idea is to pass them before!

Is it possible for a child to be overtaken by taking too much potassium?
Yes! Cases of this happening are extremely few. Doctors have not yet determined the above-mentioned safe limits for potassium intake. It is important for the body to maintain good potassium balance. It is proven that too much potassium can cause a disease called hyperkalemia and too little hypokalaemia. The side effects of unbalanced potassium in the body are fatigue, muscle weakness, muscle weakness, intestinal problems and heart rhythm disorders
