10/12/2012 - Can Kids Consume BiPro Whey Protein?

Is it just me or does it seem like kids are always hungry? They eat at mealtime, yet are still hungry for snacks in-between. But when you consider that school-aged children are still growing, combined with the physical activity of play throughout the day, it’s no wonder they’re always hungry! They need the right amount of food to fuel their growing, moving bodies!

Children thrive on dozens of nutrients that work together to promote growth and development – calcium, iron, fiber and Vitamins A, B and C are all important. But today we’re going to focus on protein, another essential nutrient for your child’s growth and development.

“Protein is part of every single body tissue, so that gives you an idea of how important it is to children who are, by their very nature, growing nearly all the time.” – Sheah Rarback, MS, RD, director of nutrition and associate professor at the Mailman Center for Child Development at the University of Miami (Source)

According to WebMD.com, a child’s daily protein needs are as follows:
• 1- to 3-year-olds need about 13 grams
• 4- to 8-year-olds, 19 grams
• 9- to 13-year-olds, 34 grams
• 14- to 18-year-olds, 46 grams for females and 52 grams for males

If you’re concerned that your child is not getting enough protein, consider adding high quality whey protein to their healthy diet. Whey protein is an acceptable source of protein for children ages four and older who are not allergic to dairy.*

If your child is extremely active in sports or physically activities or is a picky-eater, naturally unflavored whey protein, like BiPro Whey Protein, is a great way to get them the nutrients they need. Just add it to the foods and beverages they already love like chocolate milk, smoothies, oatmeal, pancakes and even cookies! Since BiPro whey protein is naturally unflavored, they’ll never even know it’s in there!

National health and fitness expert, Chris Freytag, shares her favorite ways for incorporating BiPro Whey Protein Isolate into her family’s diet in this video:

*BiPro always recommends consulting with your child’s doctor before adding whey protein to their diet
