Important Dietary Concerns for Women: Getting what you need on the Go

Moms often forget about themselves when they are taking care of their families. But, as women age, they have certain dietary requirements that need to be met. If you are a busy mom, learn what your diet must include and how to get it.

What you need

is important. One condition that affects women is osteoporosis. Men can be afflicted with the condition but it is more common in women. When calcium is deficient in your body, it will rob it from your bones. For the under 40 mom, 1,000 milligrams of calcium each day is the recommended dose. Once you pass the age of 40, your daily requirement is upped to between 1,200 and 1,500 milligrams.

Women also need vitamin D. it enables calcium to do its job. Just step outside for your daily dose. Yes, you can get vitamin D from sunlight. If you are too busy for that, drink milk and ingesting other dietary products that is fortified with vitamin D. the daily recommended dose is between 400 and 800 milligrams if you are under 50 years of age. The dosage rises to between 800 and 1,000 milligrams after that.

Moms know all about folic acid. Taking a daily dose helps with positive prenatal care for you and your baby. Folic acid helps avoid birth defects in your children.

Iron is a mineral that women need because of their menstrual cycle. The loss of iron can lead to tiredness and loss of energy, two things that moms can’t afford. Taking in 15 milligrams of iron each day can help with the low iron levels.

How to get it.

Women and especially moms are sometimes too busy to keep themselves healthy. It would be nice to sit down and have a full breakfast, lunch and dinner but sometimes that is not possible. While on the go, take your nutrition with you.

Take a multivitamin. When you can’t get all that you need, taking a vitamin can help with where you fall short. Each vitamin contains the recommended daily allowance for several vitamin and minerals you need: selenium, zinc, iron, manganese, calcium, B vitamins, vitamin A and others.

Plan ahead. Never leave the house without a handy snack. Fruit, nuts, cereal and bite size vegetables provide the nutrition that you need when you can’t sit down and eat it properly. Fruits, especially berries provide vitamin A and C. vegetables are great for fiber and a variety of minerals. Nuts provide protein.

For calcium, drink orange juice fortified with calcium or cheese sticks. They are easy to pop in your purse or an insulated diaper bag with the bottles.

Don’t let your fast-paced life keep you from taking care of yourself. Take your health into our own hands and a few healthy snacks for good measure.
