Gut Health from Birth

Gut Health from Birth

How your lifestyle choices impact gut health from birth

There are an enormous number of lifestyle choices that will impact the way your child’s gut microbiota is established and how well its diversity develops.

Whilst it starts as early as mum’s host genetics, lots of other factors impact gut health. These include mum’s diet throughout pregnancy, mode of delivery, prematurity and breast versus bottle fed. As the child ages, factors such as antibiotic use, diet, and time spent in nature greatly affects gut health.

What’s going on in the gut can play a role in developing conditions like eczema, hay-fever and childhood obesity; as well as determine length of recovery from the common cold.
