Since ancient times,

has been the main force of traditional festival gifts. Nowadays, there are more and more kinds of food on the market. How to choose the right food has become a problem for many people.

the most popular gift list of

in the view of nutrition experts, the following foods are suitable for all ages and can be used as the first choice for gift giving. Nut gift box. Fan Zhihong, an associate professor at the school of food science and nutrition engineering at China Agricultural University, points out that nuts have a strong flavor and everyone likes to eat them. They are rich in vitamin E, B vitamins, iron, zinc, calcium, magnesium and other minerals, as well as a certain amount of protein. These substances are conducive to people’s resistance to cold in winter. From this point of view, nuts are also very suitable for spring festival gifts. Try not to choose roasted, fried or fried nuts. Pay attention to check the nutrition label when purchasing. Choose products with low sodium content. In addition, the freshness must be guaranteed. The smaller the package, the better. The best combination of different ingredients can meet the diversified needs.

high-grade grease. Although many people know that cooking oil should be changed frequently, few people actually cook it. At present, most families still eat soybean oil, peanut oil and other common oils. Spring festival gifts may choose some high-grade oils, such as linseed oil, camellia oil, perilla seed oil, walnut oil and other oil rich in omega-3 fatty acids. This kind of oil can help brain health and prevent cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases. You can also choose olive oil, tea seed oil and other oil rich in monounsaturated fatty acids, which are beneficial to the control of blood lipids. What needs to be reminded is that flaxseed oil, camellia oil, perilla seed oil, walnut oil, virgin olive oil and other oils have poor heat resistance, and are suitable for cold dishes; tea seed oil and refined olive oil have better heat resistance, which can be used for frying, but the temperature should not be too high.

and

organic grains. Qi Cuihua, Professor of food science and Nutrition Department of Jinan University, pointed out that people often eat “big fish and meat” in Spring Festival, and rarely eat coarse grain. Especially for urban people whose staple food is rice and white flour, it is a very good choice to send a box of organic coarse cereals during the Spring Festival, which is both fashionable and healthy. It is necessary to pay attention to the vacuum packaging of coarse grain. If you give it to relatives and friends in rural areas, you should do your homework in advance, and you can choose coarse grain varieties that are not available in the local area.

and

are rare fruits and vegetables. Yu Renwen, a senior nutritionist at the General Hospital of the Beijing Military Region, told reporters that natural, unprocessed and high-quality fruits and vegetables were his first choice. This year, he prepared black garlic and Tianbei as gifts. These two kinds of food belong to fermented food. They are not only rich in B vitamins and protein, but also have a variety of bioactive substances. They are nutritious and health-care. They are very good for relatives and friends.

and

high quality meat products. Fan Zhihong said that if the recipient can’t eat something on weekdays, he can consider it as a gift. For example, excellent cod, salmon, Organic Certified meat, green certified free range eggs, fresh shrimp, scallops, etc. During the Chinese new year, every family’s refrigerator is crowded with space. Please remember to deliver this kind of product as soon as possible. The gift list of

the following foods are more “selective” and need to be selected according to the specific situation of the recipient. Cereal paste. Now there are two main types of paste food on the market. One is the processed and packaged products, the other is the freshly ground products in the supermarket. Generally speaking, the latter does not add sucrose, maltodextrin and other low nutritional ingredients, the nutritional value is relatively higher, the disadvantage is that it is not suitable for long-term preservation and easy to oxidize and deteriorate. It should be noted that for people who need to control blood sugar, such as diabetes, paste food is not a good choice because of its relatively high glycemic index.

and

liquor. Alcohol delivery is a common practice, but excessive drinking is harmful to health. Fan Zhihong pointed out that the selection should be based on the characteristics and atmosphere of each family. If you are a fashionable young person, you can choose high-grade red wine or brandy, whisky and other foreign wine; if you are an old person who likes to drink two cups, you usually choose high-quality white wine; if you don’t know whether you like drinking on weekdays, you can send high-grade yellow rice wine — not only low-grade, everyone can drink it, but also can be used to cook delicious food 。

and

tea. Tea delivery is in line with the traditional saying that gifts are light and affection is heavy. Fan Zhihong reminded that when delivering tea, it is necessary to see whether the gift recipient often drinks tea and what type of tea is needed, such as black tea, Pu’er tea or scented tea. If the recipient likes to drink tea, they must send real high-grade products to make the experts happy.

and

milk. Nowadays, it is also popular to bring a box of milk when visiting relatives and friends. Qicuihua reminds, buy milk also need to know the recipient’s physical condition in advance, if there is lactose intolerance, buy marked “low lactose”, “hydrolyzed lactose” milk; if high blood fat and need to control weight should choose low-fat products.

and

health products. Protein powder, ginseng, bird’s nest, sea cucumber and other health products are commonly used as gifts for the elderly. Fan Zhihong reminds that before purchasing, it is necessary to know the detailed health status of the recipient, and it is better to consult professionals carefully, because the most appropriate health products vary from person to person. If they are not compatible with physical and physiological conditions, the wrong delivery will affect the health of relatives and friends.

and

are new cooking appliances. Electric pressure cooker, soybean milk machine, electric steamer, Egg Cooker, electric stew pot, small oven, bread machine and other electrical appliances are also good choices for gift giving. With the electric pressure cooker and soybean milk machine, cooking coarse grains and beans is no longer a problem. You can eat a lot of nutritious ingredients. Therefore, for families that have not yet used these new cooking appliances, sending them will have a great effect on improving the quality of family food. The premise is that the recipient is really interested in cooking and has the conditions to cook at home.

and

have some foods with low nutrient density, which are not suitable for gift giving.

and

high sugar snacks. Sweets and snacks are traditional gifts, but from the perspective of modern nutrition, they are exactly one of the foods with the lowest nutrient density. They are high in sugar and high in calories, which are not good for the body. Whether it is to send the elderly or children, it is not a clearThe choice of wisdom. And there is a glut of festival food, and there is usually not much appetite for sweets.

and

milk beverage. This kind of dairy products contain a lot of sugar, the nutritional value is much lower than milk and yogurt. Fan Zhihong reminds us to take a good look at the instructions on the package label when selecting. If the “product category” is written as “milk beverage”, and “water” is written in the first place on the ingredient list, and the protein content is more than or equal to 1%, it must be a milk beverage. It is worth noting that some milk beverage products now write the word “drink” in a very small way, even in the corner, so you must polish your eyes when you buy them.

and

juice drinks. In recent years, sending fruit juice has become a fashion. But in the opinion of experts, fruit juice is not a good choice. Studies have shown that drinking fruit juice can’t get all the benefits of eating fruit, and many fruit juices on the market now have high sugar content, which is not only bad for health, but also may bring the risk of obesity.

and

food package. For children, food gift packs are very popular, especially some puffed food gift packs are very popular in recent years. But experts say such foods, like high sugar snacks, are low nutrient density foods and are not good for children’s growth. Smoke. Tobacco is harmful to health. In the age of giving gifts, it is not worth promoting. The above content of
