5 Foods Children Should Not Eat Before Bedtime To Avoid Bedwetting
Evening meals should be consumed at or before 8 p.m., according to experts. Any additional meals after the main course should be light snacks or fruits to avoid problems such as constipation, and bedwetting in children.
If you have a child who wets the bed, you’ve probably heard a lot of myths about nutritional bed-wetting solutions, such as limiting liquids after 6 p.m., avoiding orange juice, and avoiding spicy foods.
This post will reveal some foods children should be avoided when eating dinner close to bedtime in order to put an end to your child’s bed-wetting problem. Some foods to avoid eating at night are listed below.
1. Pounded yam
Pounded yam, like bread, is heavy and can easily put one to sleep. It may not digest as well as it would if eaten in the afternoon when the body is able to process the food.
2. Pap (agidi or eko)
Because of its high water content, Agidi may necessitate multiple trips to the restroom. If consumed close to bedtime, it may also cause bedwetting in children.
3. Eba (Gari)
Eba is a heavy meal that can take a long time to digest; it can also cause constipation if you sleep right after eating. As a result, avoid giving eba to your children before bedtime.
Bread without a doubt, children enjoy eating bread. When the bread is consumed late at night, it may not digest easily, resulting in constipation the next day.
5. Pepper soup
After eating pepper soup, you may need to drink more liquid (water). In other words, it may necessitate frequent trips to the restroom.
