    Protein safe for babies?

    Is protein powder safe for babies? Me and my wife got into a huge argument because I was trying to give my 18month old son a very small amount of my protein shake.. I'm just talking pure whey protein here, not something thats mixed with other supplements. I know where whey protein comes from, I don't see how it could be bad. Also, I know that there formula is made up of protein as well.

    And just to clarify, I don't give him a lot. Just a tiny bit mixed with more milk for taste. Kinda like a smoothie, plus I had some bananas mixed in.

    What you guys think? I have been searching but can't find much, but everything I do find says whey is good for everyone, blah blah.
    Thanks

    x2. Well, certainly for an infant. I will give my 6 and 4 year old small amounts of artificial sweeteners, but certainly only occasionally. I'm sure they get some artificial coloring though (hell, they are going to eat some candy and birthday cakes etc..).


    I would also be careful not to overdo the protein for a young kid or infant either - doesn't sound like you are. 18 months is reasonably 'old' - let me guess - your first? For us, by the time we got to #2 and 3, they had so much more junk at that age then our first (from birthday parties, being around older siblings and generally less energy to be conscientious about these things), my wife probably wouldn't bat an eyelid.

    Of course as far as the 'whey' goes, it's usually an ingredient on infant formula, so barring any allergies, I don't see the problem.

    I heard that if you give your kids artificial sweeteners it kind of desensitizes them to the calorie load of sugary foods.

    True story--not sure about the science but I did read it somewhere. When we stopped giving our son artificial colors, his behaviour changed significantly, to the point where everyone noticed. I did see some studies linking colors to behavioral problems in toddlers. I'll see if I can dig that up.

    Oh and since I quit eating artificial sweeteners I do not crave sugar anymore and my sweet tooth is all but gone. Not science, really, but just me experience.

    http://www.feingold.org/Research/Stevenson2007.html

    Dr. Jim Stevenson and his team of researchers from the University of Southampton, U.K., just published the results of their study in the September issue of the Lancet: ?Food additives and hyperactive behavior in 3-year-old and 8/9-year-old children in the community.? Stevenson and his team tested 297 children in a double-blind-placebo-control study. Each child was given a drink and then their parents and teachers subsequently rated their behaviors. The juice ?cocktails? consisted of popular azo dyes and sodium benzoate. The researchers used a global hyperactivity aggregate to measure the outcomes. Older children were also given a computer exam to test their ability to attend to tasks.

    The researchers determined that artificial colors and/or sodium benzoate increased levels of hyperactivity in preschool aged and 8-9 year old children within the general population.

    Seeing that the average adult need about 0.9g/kg of protein per day... If you give a baby/todler about 0.4-0.6g/kg amounting to the relevant serving, would be beneficial to the kid... Just my 2 cents
