bored panda He contacted Uta Boellinger, a BANT registered nutritionist, who kindly agreed to tell us more about what leads us to believe that some things are unhealthy when they are good for us.

What's really healthy but people think it's not?  (30 answers) One thing I’ve noticed as a babysitter is that people don’t think it’s okay for their baby/toddler to chill alone in the crib after a nap. It’s actually very healthy and good for them to relax in their cribs by themselves after waking up from a nap, especially if they’re not distressed about it! Parents will rush to get them the moment they open their eyes, which eventually causes the children to start crying when they wake up, because they expect someone to get them the moment they open their eyes. These are also the babies that won’t let you lose sight even for a moment.

But the ones that are able to cool off on their own for 10-20 minutes from the time they’re really small usually just roll and babble on their own for 10-20 minutes before they get upset. And children who can relax on their own tend to be very calm during waking hours as well, and don’t freak out when you leave the room.

It’s perfectly healthy for your child to be alone even as a baby.

An example of this is fat. “Many people still believe that anything high in fat is automatically unhealthy. This couldn’t be further from the truth. In reality, we all need fat, as our bodies are literally made of fat (cell membranes, brain , hormones, etc.).. They are all made of fat!).

Of course, there are good and bad fats and some fats can become unhealthy if heated to high temperatures, but at the end of the day, high-fat foods like avocado, fatty fish, nuts and seeds are good for us.

Another reason foods can be seen as unhealthy is if they are naturally high in sugar (like the poor old banana). The problem here is that statements are often taken out of context! Whether something is healthy or unhealthy depends a lot on when you eat it, how big the portion is, and whether or not you combine it with other foods. “

No, eating sweets made from processed ingredients is bad, fruit (as with everything, in moderation) is good. Fiber, vitamins and minerals, nutrition in something that just grew out there. well eat fruit

To help people be more cautious about conflicting information online and make the right choices for their health, Boellinger highlights the difference between whole foods and highly processed foods, and how important it is to listen to your body and find reliable sources.

“For example, a banana may technically have the same amount of sugar as a chocolate bar, but in reality, it’s even healthier because it also contains fiber and vitamins and minerals.

Second, listen to your body. If you feel good, have great energy levels, good sleep and balanced moods, chances are you’re doing the right thing. Don’t let anyone tell you something is unhealthy just because it didn’t work for them.

Finally, find trusted sources! Take the advice of registered nutritionists rather than a fitness influencer, and don’t listen to anyone who is also trying to sell you products (like weight loss shakes, etc.).”
