A Spoonful of Mayo Is Good for Your Kid

 

A spoonful of mayonnaise can be full of goodness. Here are some of the good things that mayo has to offer:

Good fats

Mayonnaise is made from soybeans, sunflower, and canola—fat sources that are not only good sources of energy, but also of essential fatty acids that help the body absorb vitamins A, D, E, and K. This is important because vitamin A helps promote normal skin; vitamin D helps in the development of normal bones, muscle function, and teeth, and in the absorption of calcium and phosphorus; vitamin E protects cells from oxidative stress; and vitamin K helps in blood clotting and prevents excessive bleeding.

Good shape.

It’s recommended that 20 to30 percent of a person’s energy source should come from fats – good fats like that in avocado, fish oils, olive oil, nuts, and yes, even mayo! To ensure your child’s good health, go for a balanced diet with the right mix of protein, carbohydrates, and good fats, as these all have different roles in body functions. Protein is essential for the repair and growth of muscles and body tissues. Carbohydrates provide energy for everyday activities. Fat, as mentioned above, helps the body absorb nutrients like vitamins.

Good heart. 

Mayonnaise is a good source of omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids, which are good for the heart. All in all, this helps kids grow up strong and healthy, and puts your mind at ease.
