Choosing fresh fruits or juices for diet?

In recent years, more and more people have accepted challenges, such as drinking vegetable juice or smoothie every day for several months, for a healthy lifestyle. But not a few people who reject the challenge because more believe the efficacy of fresh vegetables and fruits are consumed directly, without being processed into juice or smoothie.

Actually, which one is better: eating fresh vegetables and fruits or drinking the juice? About this matter, Stella Bela, doctor of nutrition clinic , gave the answer. "The most important thing," Stella added, "is to know that the fiber in the form of the drink is healthy or not, sometimes in the form of juice is it true or not ?, as quoted from CNN

Recognized Stella, busyness of modern life is often the reason people skip fiber consumption, either from vegetables or fruits. Proven, fiber consumption in Indonesia is somewhat small. According to the Health Research Association (Riskesdas) Ministry of Health, in 2013, consumption of vegetables and fruits in Indonesia is still less, up to 93.5 percent. The results of the previous survey in 2007 are more or less the same.

People's consumption is higher for health-risk foods, including flavoring seasonings of 77 percent, followed by sugary foods and beverages such as 53 percent syrup, and 40 percent fatty foods. In the end, many products on the market offer different types of fiber, from supplements to beverages. It is also considered more practical than having to peel fruit or cook vegetables first.

"If you consume fibrous beverages, look at the calories, for leisure activities, just 100 to 200 calories, then it can be calculated by itself the limits of consumption," said Stella. Stella said, consumption of fresh vegetables and fruits remain important. Apparently this intake is also considered necessary in terms of psychological and organ functions, especially the teeth and mouth. "When targeting children, as much as possible to introduce the original form [fresh], because when eating real foods like fruit and vegetables [fresh], there will be simulations that work in the oral cavity," said Ayoe Sutomo, family psychologist who met on occasion the same one.

Simulations ranging from tasting, biting, chewing, to swallowing have an effect on the formation of oral organs capacity. As Ayoe explains, the taste senses of tongue trained during mealtimes provide better speech ability than those who rarely use taste buds, and biting activities can stimulate teething. "If you want the food to be destroyed," Ayoe suggests, "it is better not to be too creamy, or to be made or molded more attractive to keep the child interested in eating fruits or vegetables".
