Probiotics are the healthy bacteria that promote good digestion and boost the immune system. Lily & Loaf can help your little ones get the daily probiotics they need to stay happy and healthy.
Strengthen your children’s immunity
A healthy immune system relies on the right blend of healthy yeasts, bacteria and other microbes working together in the gut to metabolise food, neutralise toxins and fight off infection. This is no different for children. Even at a young age, your littles ones have the same delicate balance of digestive flora keeping them healthy as the rest of us.
Research as found that foods which are rich in probiotics can help increase our amounts of healthy bacteria, which aid digestion, strengthen the immune system and help reduce the risk of developing longer-term health complications.
What are probiotics?
The human body plays host to millions of harmless micro-organisms like bacteria, yeasts and fungi that work together to help the body function properly.
Most of these are housed in the intestinal tract and are a vital part of a healthy digestive system. They help the body to process food, absorb the right nutrients and kill off any harmful toxins that can cause serious health issues.
So, maintaining the right balance of probiotics within the gut is essential, as they help the body fight back against a wide range of common ailments including colds and tummy bugs, along with conditions like irritable bowel syndrome and eczema.
Ensuring your children’s diet includes the right amounts of probiotics can help your children build resilience to many childhood bugs and illnesses.
How can I ensure my children get enough probiotics?
Probiotics help replenish the body’s healthy bacteria and are useful for treating diarrhoea and constipation, both of which are common for kids, especially during potty training.
As probiotics come from certain food sources, ensuring your children eat a varied diet is a good place to start. Fermented foods like yogurt, sauerkraut, kombucha, kimchi, kefir and cottage cheese all contain different types of probiotics.
However, children can be picky eaters and may not like some, or all, of the above. So, you may need a little help to ensure their little bodies get the daily probiotics they need.
