What is Making My Baby Fussy?

A child’s hyperactive behavior can be controlled if synthetic preservatives, dyes, flavorings, monosodium glutamate, chocolate, and caffeine are excluded from his diet. American scientists found that two-thirds of children with hyperactivity suffer from disorders of glucose metabolism. It means that sweets in the diet of a hyperactive kid should be minimized. 

A baby’s hyperactive behavior can be controlled by eliminating synthetic preservatives, dyes, flavorings, monosodium glutamate, chocolate, and caffeine from its diet. Such data were obtained as a result of an experiment with the participation of preschool children with a diagnosis of hyperactivity. One and a half months of healthy eating significantly stabilized the children’s behavior.

Another reason that stimulates hyperactivity is magnesium deficiency. Magnesium is the most essential element for the health of the nervous system, however,  magnesium deficiency can cause hyperactivity in a child. This mineral is needed both for restful sleep and for normal glucose metabolism. So let’s find out which products need to be on the kid’s menu to normalize its behavior.


Until the age of three, a child’s diet must include dairy products, as they are the primary source of calcium. That’s why excluding baby formula from the menu is not recommended. Even though most vitamins a kid receives from solid food, the milk formula includes ingredients that could be missing in the products e.g. organic formula will have taurine in the content which is necessary for the development of a central nervous system and eyesight. Besides, in most European baby food, you’ll find dextrin maltose that promotes the growth of bifidobacteria in the intestines and so on. 


It is possible to give sweets to children, but in limited quantities, and not all of them. You can start with marmalade, marshmallows, snacks, puree pushes, etc. It is worth remembering that sweets with chocolate content increase the excitability of the nervous system and can cause allergies, so you should not abuse them. It is not recommended to give sweets at night, as this leads to caries.

For kids younger than 6 months, you can give yogurts and sweet cheese pastes based on fructose, however, that shouldn’t be the main meal for a baby at this age, because such products can make a gassy baby. So, if it’s possible, the experts recommend avoiding sweets on the menu for kids of different ages.


As a general rule, most people consume more salt than they need, not the other way around. You need to teach a baby to eat moderately salty food. For this, you need to salt the food at the end of cooking and in such a way that the food is slightly unsalted. Also, make sure that foods that contain a lot of salt (sausages, smoked meats, etc.) appear in the baby’s diet as late as possible.
