Animal Protein, Importance of Pregnancy to Prevent Pregnancy: Supplementation During Pregnancy
Although it has been advertised for a long time, however harsh It is still the biggest enemy of health in Indonesia. According to the Ministry of Health of the Republic of Indonesia, stunting is a disease that affects the growth and development of children due to poor nutrition and chronic infection that shows their height or height is not up to standard.
Violence in children causes disruption of brain development, physical development, and physical development.
Not only is it a health problem, obesity actually has an impact on the economy. The country’s vice president Ma’ruf Amin said that the problem of underdevelopment of children causes Indonesia to lose more than 300 trillion every year.
In the current situation, according to a study conducted by the World Bank, the economic loss due to austerity and malnutrition is 2-3 percent of the country’s GDP.
The country’s vice president Ma’ruf Amin said that the problem of underdevelopment of children causes Indonesia to lose more than 300 trillion every year. In the current situation, according to a study conducted by the World Bank, the economic loss due to austerity and malnutrition is 2-3 percent of the country’s GDP.
Ma’ruf said this when he was speaking at the 3rd national working meeting of the Association of Environmental Health Professionals in Indonesia (HAKLI).
“For Indonesia, the total loss due to drought is more than Rp. 300 trillion per year,” said Ma’ruf, last Saturday (26/3).
Undoubtedly, in 2015, Indonesia was the fifth country with the highest number of children in the world after China, India, Nigeria, and Pakistan. In addition to the genetics that cannot be avoided, many cases occur because Indonesian children suffer from asthma at an early age.
“Actually, obesity can be prevented. Not only from infancy, but from the time the mother is pregnant,” said Ika Setyani, nutritionist and liaison officer for members of the Indonesian Dietitian Association (ASDI) CNNIndonesia.com.
The Ministry of Health launched a program to prevent contact from the first 1000 days of pregnancy.
What must be understood, anxiety is actually not just a matter of physical deterioration. When it comes to nutrition, failure to thrive can also cause problems in a child’s cognitive development.
There are at least two conditions for a child to be stunted, namely malnutrition and severe infection.
The signs of failure of development are shown only by the graph of the baby’s weight that does not increase, tends to stop or even decreases. Research in many countries, including Indonesia, shows that the characteristics of children who fail to develop on average begin to appear when they are three years old.
These various developments of children can be monitored through the KIA (Mother and Child Health Card) or KMS (Health Card) available at hospitals and post offices.
Animal protein sources
Ika explained that one of the things that cause interference is the lack of nutrients, especially animal protein.
“However, the problem is that most of these pregnant women do not have enough nutrients, especially animal protein.”
“Most pregnant women in Indonesia experience PEM, which is called Protein Energy Deficiency.”

Pregnant women themselves need to eat more protein than other growing women. If adult women need 20-25 percent of their daily needs, pregnant women need about 35 percent of their total daily needs.
Ika explained that many pregnant women think that only folic acid and other minerals are needed. In addition, when you think of the need to eat nutritious food, what comes to mind is vegetable protein such as tempeh and tofu.
“This is not a crime, but in terms of preventing interference, animal protein is recommended.”
He added that animal protein is easily absorbed by the body compared to vegetable protein. He said that animal protein has biological value and is therefore useful for pregnant women to prevent miscarriage or infertility.
However, he does not deny that vegetable protein is also useful to prevent interference. Only, the amount that must be eaten is more because it contains less vitamin B12.
“The best source of vitamin B12 is animal protein.”
So what is the problem with consuming animal protein?
“Many pregnant women think that to get animal protein is expensive, for example it has to be from salmon. Although it is not, there are cheap ones,” said Ika.
“One source of cheap animal protein is beef, salmon, tuna, chicken, even anchovies and eggs. In fact, eggs are one of the best animal proteins.”
“Anchovies only, pregnant women should not eat too much, because this is salt to fear high blood pressure and inflammation.”
