Why are organic foods more important for babies?
Babies are much more sensitive than adults. Therefore, harmful substances that may enter the babies' body are more threatening to environmental factors than their adults. In addition, the upper limits of hormones and pesticides were calculated for adults. These upper limits for adults can be very harmful for infants, accumulate in infants' body and can cause serious health problems in the future.

Why are additional nutrients important?
Breast milk is the only food to be considered for feeding your baby for up to 6 months. However, after 6 months, breast milk and baby food used in the absence of your baby can not fully meet the nutritional needs of your rapidly growing baby. Your baby needs additional nutrients to maintain healthy physical, brain and psychological development. In this period of life, your baby's need for various vitamins (A, B, C, D, E) and minerals (zinc, iron, etc.) can only be met by other nutrients other than milk.
When and how should I give additional food to my baby?
Additional nutrients should be started in soft consistency and in small amounts. Additional nutrients gradually increase in quantity and consistency, gradually reaching the content and volume that will form the baby's meal. Fruit (apple, pear, banana); vegetables (potatoes, carrots, green leaves), cereals (rice, lentils) and oils (olive oil and butter) should take their place in the baby's meals.
Unfortunately, the prevalence of allergic, toxic and infectious diseases due to nutrients is increasing. For this reason, it is ideal that the additional nutrients you give to your baby are clean, ecological (organic) products that do not contain toxins, hormones and drugs.

Fever in Children
In general, an increase above normal body temperature is called fever. Body temperature is vital and is maintained at 37 ° C (central temperature) under the control of the hypothalamus in our brain. Body temperature rises in two different cases. In the first one, the indeki thermostat indeki in the temperature control center is set higher by setting-based influences (infections). This new temperature setting is perceived as the organism's own normal temperature level and the body temperature is tried to be increased to this level. This is under the control of the organism and fever rarely rises above 41.1 ° C.
In the second case, either excessive heat is produced in the body or the accumulated heat cannot be removed from the body. The central setting has not changed and the temperature rise cannot be controlled. Hyperthyroidism, hot environment (heatstroke) or sweating can occur in some diseases. Sweating is very important in heat dissipation from the body (cooling-conditioning). In children with inadequate fluid intake, sweating cannot occur and normalization of fever takes longer.
