Meat Mitigation Micronutrient Deficiency

PROBLEM nutrition not only been experienced by people with low incomes, but also many people with medium to high income, they still experience the problem of nutrition. It could be due to lack of knowledge of what kind of balanced nutrition to be obtained by anyone.

One of the problems are fairly balanced nutrition often occurs, including micronutrients. Micronutrients are the nutritional needs of our body are not directly we feel the consequences. Mentioned by dietitians from the Nutrition Consultation Bogor Agricultural University (IPB), Sarah Fauzia SGZ SP, data from Indonesia indicated that from 11 micro nutrients, vitamin C has met only sufficient, while 10 did not have been met, including iron.

While WHO global data (2000) shows, the world's undernourished population of nearly 3 billion micro, where residents are suffering due to iron deficiency anemia is as much as $ 2 million, and more suffer are the children. Further details of the health agency in the world, according to WHO, one in three people in developing countries suffer from lack of vitamins and minerals.

"The pattern of living and eating habits of healthy children can be influenced by several factors, one of the most important factors is the influence of diet and habits of the parents," said Sarah.

Sarah said that, while not happen directly, but many parents who pass the bad influences in eating healthy foods for their children. Not familiar with these foods with balanced nutrition.

While micronutrients the body needs in very small quantities, but in no way be underestimated due to micronutrient micronutrient deficiencies if we can have a negative impact on health.

To avoid the lack of intake of micronutrients, one of which can be done by the consumption of beef fat. Although the consumption of beef fat, nutrients in the case of iron can be met as long as children are consumed in sufficient quantity and balanced, not less and not excessive.

"Only two of 10 children eat beef," said Sarah when meeting the media event to "strengthen their breakfast cooking competition are" held by the Meat and Livestock Australia (MLA) and cooperate with Association of Culinary Professionals (ACP) at Jakarta Convention Center for some time.

Standards Fresh meat consumption by world food agencies (FAO) in 2008 to fight malnutrition, which is 33 kg / year / inhabitant. While the data in 2007 from the Directorate General of Livestock, Ministry of Agriculture of Indonesia, indicates that the population average consumption of fresh meat from Indonesia is only 0.53 kg / year / inhabitant, where the figure is very low than recommended.

"The consumption of beef is less than the recommended three to four times a week," he advised.

Some reasons for the lack or low meat intake in children in Indonesia, among children who think less desire to eat meat for reasons difficult to chew (hard / hard). Even some of the reasons for the mother also mentioned that meat cooking is time.

"Eating 122 grams of meat per day to meet the needs of iron. For an equivalent benefit, we should consume 7.9 kg of fish," said Sarah.

Children suffering from iron deficiency as a micronutrient can cause decreased intelligence of emotional intelligence. In addition, it can also lead to lower levels of hemoglobin, which is a chemical compound present in red blood cells that the function of transporting oxygen throughout the body, we are familiar with the anemia.

"If your child has anemia, means that children naturally weak, tired and lethargic. And it is very concerned about the health and growth of children," says Sarah.

MLA Country Representative in Indonesia, Isye Iriani said, to help raise public awareness of the importance of eating lean meat, then some activities have been undertaken, in particular the education of children, parents and teachers of 40 schools in Greater Jakarta and Bandung.
