Littlediet is back - Water to fight against HAZE

Littlediet has been not updated for two weeks. The busy life just doesn't end and weather in Malaysia is below healthy level due to haze. Therefore, water is a appropriate topic to start with.

Have you ever realized that water can give you power or energy too? Can you feel the recharging or refreshing after a mouthful of water? Of course, water do not have any energy, at here which means calories free. It is such a natural precious resources for human, animals, plants and eventhough our lovely planet.

70% of our body make with water. It can conclude that everyone also make from water as water almost occupied ¾ of our body. Water is the most important nutrient for life and has many important functions including regulating temperature, lubricating joints and transporting nutrients and waste throughout the body.

Fluid requirement for each people is different according to age, weight and activity level. Most of the infants since born is able to drink maternal milk only. Maternal milk actually already contains all the nutrients and fluid need for a newborn baby and usually they do not need top up with others fluids such as plain water. Some parents might worry their baby might have inadequiate fluid intake, but actually no worries on that. A newborn baby can easily get adequate fluid intake just from maternal milk where their immune system is not yet being fully develop, thus not strong enough against bacteria in water, better avoid plain water directly like what adults take. After a few weeks, when theie immune system is fully developed especially gut system (being the largest immune system of body), there will be no problem for drinking more amount of plain water.
