Breastfeeding is the best nutrition for healthy growth and development of babies. Good maternal nutrition helps sustain an adequate supply and quality of breast milk. Unnecessary introduction of bottle-feeding, partially or fully, or of other complementary foods and drinks may have a negative impact on breastfeeding, which may be irreversible. Consult your doctor and consider the social and financial implications before deciding to use breast milk substitutes or if you have difficulty breastfeeding. Follow usage, preparation and storage instructions of breast milk substitutes or of other complementary foods and drinks carefully as improper or unnecessary use may pose a health hazard.
Are you aware that there's good and bad bacteria in your child's gut? When there isn't enough good bacteria to balance the bad ones, he can face digestive issues such as bloating, gas or diarrhoea. So how do you make sure there's more goof bacteria in your little one's gut to win the battle?
Here's what he or she needs - probiotic and prebiotics. Both promote a balance of bacteria in your child's intestines and limit the growth of "unfriendly" organisms that could cause infections and inflammation.
Prebiotics help boost the growth of good bacteria in the intestinal tract. So for a healthy gut and digestive system, your toddler will need both.
To help your precious one grow healthy gut bacteria, you can try introducing some naturally wholesome, prebiotic - rich foods like oats, bananas, garlic, apples, wheat bran, onions and asparagus into his diet. You can also give probiotic rich food like yoghurt to your little one.
