The goal of the Ministry of Health

Dec 30th 2013 at 8:50 PM

The goal of the Ministry of Health is to serve approximately 6 million children per year in endemic regions. Pregnant women should not take a mega dose, because its use can cause birth defects. The distribution of capsules for women is made in the immediate postpartum period, even in maternity wards before discharge. How important is Vitamin A? Found in breast milk, whole milk, liver, egg yolk, oil fruits, vegetables dark green and orange vegetables like squash and carrots,

vitamin A is essential for health. It is important for the proper functioning of the eyes, helps reduce the severity of infections common in children and assists in the development and growth of them. Vitamin A protects the cornea. Its lack can have serious consequences in the visual process, including total and irreversible blindness in children, its most severe manifestation.

Factors that may show a deficiency of vitamin A in the body - and therefore merit investigation - are: diarrhea and frequent respiratory infections and difficulty seeing in places with low light, the so-called night blindness. Mothers are advised to be alert to the diverse diet of the children, to call the health unit to receive mega dose of vitamin A in endemic areas and the promotion of breastfeeding. With proper breastfeeding and healthy eating, the child can maintain the optimum level of concentration of vitamin A. Some regional foods are excellent sources of this nutrient.
