Kids need more sleep than you think, 10 hours a day is an ideal. My girls go to bed at 7pm and are asleep usually around 730. They wake up at 630am.For food....most important nutrient for kids is fat! For growth they need calories....but the fat helps for brain development.
I dunno about that! Both my girls were breastfed and they were larger than any formula baby. Both breastfed until they were 18 months old and exclusively breast milk until 6 months old.
The 2000 CDC growth charts can be used to assess the growth of exclusively breast-fed infants, however when interpreting the growth pattern one must take into account that mode of infant feeding can influence infant growth. In general, exclusively breast-fed infants tend to gain weight more rapidly in the first 2 to 3 months. From 6 to 12 months breast-fed infants tend to weigh less than formula-fed infants.
Sometimes you just have a small child. There is nothing wrong with it as long as they are meeting all developmental milestones appropriately. My girls both are very small for their age. They didn't start out that way, one was 8 lb 15 ounces at birth, but didn't even make 20 pounds by 12 months. She is now in the 25 percentile for height and 10th percentile for weight at 4 years old. She is tiny, and just perfect in every way.
The only tall traditional group I can think of are Masai (heavy milk consumption) and North American Indians (specially those from the south), many were over 6 feet tall. In the case of the (southern) Indians they had tuber consumption (http://cavemanforum.com/index.php?topic=2059.0).
As a 5'6" guy I need to tell you that being short kinda sucks. As a grown up I don't really care that much (except for the fact that I like volleyball and can't spike properly). As a kid, though, being the shortest one around was not fun. At sports (except for soccer or motorsports), or even in social interactions, you are at a disadvantage that you need to overcome. This disadvantage can be overcome, for sure, but if the disadvantage wasn't there things would be much easier. My 2cents: if you can (without trading off with health), make your kid taller.
a SAD diet contributes to a taller population (excluding genetics?) and so if you want your children to be tall, include some healthy SAD foods.
okay I just wanna make sure I have this right....a SAD diet contributes to a taller population (excluding genetics?) and so if you want your children to be tall, include some healthy SAD foods. During adolescence, where there are huge growth spurts, we have higher levels of insulin which causes acne as well and allows the growth hormone to encourage us to grow. Now.....is it the high levels of insulin that are causing the acne or the growth hormone. Because if that's the case...could you say that high levels of insulin cause acne?I have had acne since I was 10 years old. This is also when I started a growth spurt AND slimmed down. I started menstruating at age 11. I stopped growing at age 12 BUT my acne got steadily worse over my teenage years and I still have it. I've had my testosterone tested and I am not anywhere near high levels. My cycle has always been regular and had no trouble getting pregnant twice....so my hormones could hardly be to blame for the acne. Could it have been caused by high insulin all along?
You don't have to include SAD food. My point is that you have to include more lean meat and switch the fats for paleo carbs like vegetables, fruits, and tubers (tubers have the advantage of not having so much sugar).
