Beat constipation for a happier child
CONSTIPATION in children is a common problem that creates an onslaught of headache for many parents.
A child suffering from this condition will show symptoms such as less frequent bowel movements (less than three times a week), dry and hard stools, pain when passing stool and a small amount of blood on the stool surface and diaper.
Chronic constipation may lead to complications such as vomiting, fever, stomach ache, poor appetite and an irritable or unhappy constitution.
To address the problem of constipation in children, Morinaga Chil-Kid is enriched with various enriching ingredients such as galacto-oligosaccharides (GOS).
GOS is a kind of prebiotic that benefits bowel function by stimulating the growth and activity of beneficial bacteria in the colon.
This in turns helps to increase the frequency of defecation and promotes both normal and soft tool.
Studies have shown that GOS can also reduce allergies, improve calcium and magnesium absorption, reduce the chance of infectious diseases, increase bone density and reduce the severity of cold and flu.
Additionally, Morinaga Chil-Kid is fortified with DHA omega-3 fatty acid and arachidonic acid.
These ingredients are known to help with immunity and blood clotting, as well as the development of other vital functions in the body such as the brain, eyes and heart.
Morinaga Chil-kid is also enriched with five nucleotidesm which help lessen the risk of diarrhoea in children and enable better response to vaccination.
These nucleotides also let children produce more antibodies and other immune cells.
