Not every day is celebrated as Women's Day but the thing is that all things of the girls should be emphasized. It should not be that only on Women's Day we will care for girls and women. For women the important thing is nutrition and all of us should ensure the nutrition of girls and in every family, care is needed for the girls because girls care for the family, but do not get time to care for themselves.
Take some time for in a part of the day.
Every member of the family needs nutrition. It is seen, the girls are giving food to everyone, but they do not have anything for themselves. Many nutritional needs are needed to meet daily works and physical works.
Diet for Women
In our society, the physical work of women is a little more. The girls have to work in all places outside the house. It is also possible that all of the nursing of the children take care of them. So women's nutritional importance is very much.
Calcium: Getting enough calcium is important for all ages, but it's particularly important during adolescence and early adulthood. Natural sources of calcium, such as low-fat dairy products, are the smartest choice, because they also contain vitamin D and protein, both required for calcium absorption. Milk, yogurt, and cheese contribute most of the calcium in our diets. Some vegetables are also good sources, including broccoli, kale, and Chinese cabbage.
Vitamin D: Vitamin D is also crucial to the proper metabolism of calcium. Aim for 600 IU (international units) daily. You can get vitamin D from foods such as salmon, shrimp, vitamin-D fortified milk, cod, and eggs.
Iron: Iron helps to create the hemoglobin that carries oxygen in your blood. It's also important to maintaining healthy skin, hair, and nails. Due to the amount of blood lost during menstruation, women of childbearing age need more than twice the amount of iron that men do-even more during pregnancy and breastfeeding. A best source of iron is red meat (especially liver) which also contains high levels of saturated fat. While leafy green vegetables and beans are also good sources of iron. Other foods rich in iron include poultry, seafood, dried fruit such as raisins and apricots, and iron-fortified cereals, breads, and pastas.
Magnesium: Magnesium increases calcium absorption form the blood into the bone. In fact, your body can't utilize calcium without it.
