By making it their meal, the pressure cookers of the future will be a little bit like their parents, according to a new research.
Researchers at University of York, in the United Kingdom, have studied how pressure cooker meals can improve children’s mental health.
“The idea is to make the child feel that there’s something special to be done,” said Dr Rebecca Jones, a professor of child and adolescent psychiatry at the university and lead author of the research.
The study is published in the journal Pediatrics.
The researchers analysed data from a study conducted by a US charity, the American Academy of Pediatrics, on 1,744 children.
It found that while pressure cooker dinners are popular among families in the US, they’re not as popular in Britain, which is one of the only countries where the cooking method is widely adopted by parents.
The majority of the children were raised in households with cooking methods, such as stovetop cooking or electric pressure cooking, which use steam to heat food.
For many families, the main method of cooking their dinner is by putting the family’s favourite foods in a pressure cooker, the study found.
But the research also found pressure cooker childrens dinners are not always as healthy as their non-pressure cooker peers.
For instance, one third of the pressure cooked meals in the study contained only water, and only one third contained enough fibre to provide enough protein.
Another problem, the researchers found, was that some children’s meals contained more sugar than the recommended amount of 2% per day.
It’s not clear how much of a problem these meals are, but the pressure cooking method could be the answer, said Dr Jones.
“We think the best way to look at this is to look to the impact of the food on a child’s psychological well-being,” she said.
“What’s really important is that the food itself is not an issue.”
But, she added, it’s not the pressure-cooker kidss meals that are a big deal.
“It’s the pressure they use to cook the food that’s a big issue,” she told the BBC.
“You need to look beyond the ingredients to the food being cooked.”
And the fact that there is water in the food is an issue as well.
It’s just one of those things that is a concern when we look at the childrens meals.”‘
I’m not going to cook my kids’This is not a new trend, as pressure cooking has become an increasingly popular cooking method for many years, said the charity’s chief executive, Helen Robinson.”
In the UK, the use of pressure cooker dinners for children has grown to almost three times as many as those for adults.
“These childrens’ meals are the most common form of food that parents cook for their children.”
Dr Robinson added that the children’s dinner debate had been a bit of a distraction from other important work being done at the Royal College of Nursing, and on behalf of the charity.
“But the pressure is definitely on,” she added.
“Children’s meals are not just for adults, they are a great way to get healthy, to get a healthy appetite, to feel good and to stay active.”
If we are serious about supporting our families in this important role, we need to start doing more to support children’s eating.
“A spokesperson for the Royal Academy of Nursing said pressure cooker foods were an issue, and had been on the rise.”
This is one reason why pressure cookery is a good choice for children,” they said in a statement.”
Foods like vegetables, pulses and fruits have the potential to be a source of fibre and nutrients to support healthy growth and development, but there is little research to show whether this is true for children.
“They are also often served on a plate and we are not yet sure how healthy the meal is.”
