08/17/2011 - The Importance of Protein and Children

Children don’t always get enough protein in their diet for a number of different reasons. BiPro Whey Protein is the perfect solution to this problem.
It is a tasteless powder that can be combined with your kids’ favorite foods in any number of delicious ways. Children need enough protein in their diet to stay healthy and strong. You can determine how much protein your kids need by their weight.
Each day, kids need to eat about 0.5 grams of protein for every pound (0.5 kilograms) they weigh. That’s a gram for every 2 pounds (1 kilogram) they weigh.

Protein builds up, maintains, and replaces the tissues in your body. Your muscles, your organs, and your immune system are made up mostly of protein. Your body uses the protein you eat to make lots of specialized protein molecules that have specific jobs.
For instance, your body uses protein to make hemoglobin the part of red blood cells that carries oxygen to every part of your body. Other proteins are used to build cardiac muscle.

Whether you’re running or just hanging out, protein is doing important work: moving your legs, moving your lungs, and protecting you from disease. So you can imagine how important it is for children to get the right amount of it in their diet.
BiPro Whey Protein Isolate is naturally unflavored so you can add it to just about any of your kids’ favorite foods and they won’t even notice the difference.

Try this yummy and kid-friendly smoothie that can easily be paired with BiPro Whey Protein to add some protein to your child’s diet!
