BENEFIT YOUR CHILD
Your child’s microbiome composition will adapt and settle around the age of 3, however it is still susceptible to imbalances and disruptions during this time. Factors like school, stress, diet, medications, and busy lifestyle can be challenging for a young child, which in turn can impact their microbiome. An imbalanced microbiome may cause poor immune response, eczema, digestive issues, allergies, and other health concerns.
WHAT AFFECTS YOUR
CHILDREN’S GUT HEALTH?
Although commonly prescribed by doctors, an overuse of antibiotics can cause imbalances in the microbiome.
A high fiber, low sugar diet, and an adequate intake of fruit of veggies encourage a balanced gut microbiome.
Having a healthy immune system will help your child fight off illnesses and infections that they may encounter in school.
Long-term mental health imbalances, such as stress, anxiety, and depression, can affect the levels of friendly bacteria in the microbiome.
