Mari, welcome to My Dikas!

“I’m Mariana Del Bosco, nutritionist, I work in the area of obesity and had the opportunity to perform for many years in childhood obesity clinic of the hospital das clínicas…” Is more or less how I’d introduce you, but there are 10 months everything changed. Today I’m Mariana, mother of Alice, this is my biggest title, this is my most important function of maternity underwear featured on

And in the midst of these changes all that the first child brings in life, Katia invited me to be a columnist in this blog that I love – and read since pregnancy! I was honradíssima with the invitation, but at the same time, I confess, with fear of not realizing another function. Now that Alice is almost a year and I’m more organized, I decided to accept this challenge. I really want to take this space to exchange information and dikas, using a little of my experience of Office and much of my experience as a mother.

So, let’s start from the beginning: I believe many of you have heard about the importance of the first 1000 days of drinking, huh? It is in this period, between the 9 months of pregnancy and the first 2 years of life, which determines a lot of physical and mental health. Already has many interesting studies that prove that the mother’s diet and baby’s impact not only on growth and development, but also, at the risk of developing diseases in the future.

The first 1,000 days are taken as a window of opportunity to make everything right and in order to get a good “metabolic programming”. And there is all our responsibility. We make all our children’s food choices during this period and it is within this context that I will select a few issues so we can start our talk here. Of course let’s not forget older, school snacks, of so many industrialized options, lack of appetite, the selectivity and so on. Anyway, I want to bring many practical tips and many recipes to try and take better care of our family, based on the latest scientific evidence. I hope you enjoy and thank you for having me here.

I take this post from presentation to pass a very easy and tasty recipe.

This cookie of flour is very good and made without milk! A healthy snack option of small and super easy to make-the maiorzinhos can even help put his hand in the cookie jar. Good for one day of vacation, with cold and rain.

Here we already made up the double recipe because you can eat warm and keep in a well sealed and go on eating snacks throughout the week. The main advantage with regard to industrialized is the lowest sodium and less fat, besides, is zero trans fat. Another interesting aspect to do snacks at home is to reduce the amount of dyes, preservatives and acidulants, all “before” to which we expose our children.

Cracker flour:

3 cups of flour sour

1/4 of Cup hot water

3 eggs

1/2 cup of oil

1 c. salt coffee

How to do:

Place the flour, oil and salt in a bowl, blanch with hot water and blend in the mixer until it forms a homogeneous mass. Reserve. Beat the egg whites and then add the egg yolks. Beat a little longer and pour the egg mixture into the bowl with the flour. Beat a little longer until it is with a good uniform consistency. To shape the cookies you can use icing bag or a plastic bag with the end cut off. Another alternative is to do in formats of marbles (but I personally prefer the original format of cookie of flour). Take to roast over low heat (200) for about 25 to 30 minutes, but it depends on the oven, then you have to keep an eye and remove when it’s Goldie. Yields enough, so it takes patience for baking the batches
