The Answer to Better Digestion for Children in Transition from Human Milk to Formula

Digestion is crucial to the health of a child as it determines the absorption of nutrients from milk.  The speed of digestion determinrd the speed at which nutrients are made available to the bloodstreem.

Transition from breast milk to formula often results in constipation or diarrhea among infants because of the significant differences in the composition of formula and human milk.

In contrast to breast milk, cow's milk is processed to 1) limit microbiological growth, 2) to make suitablr as a raw material for infant formulae and , 3) to transform it to liquid to powder.   During the above process by heat treatment , protein becomes less denaturated and glycated.

Protein denaturation causes protein to lose their structure that may kead to protein-fat complexes that can interfere with stomach emptying.  The rate of stomach emptying id very important for optimal digestion.  For that reason any ibterference should be controlled. Denaturation by processing, thus, needs to be controlled and infant formulae must undergo the lowest possible level of heat treatment in order to achieve better digestion in infants.

Royal FrieslandCampina, one of the world's leading dairy companies, has ventired into produckng quality milk that aids not only in digestion but helps children absorb necessary nutrients for growing up and becoming strong inside out. Through extensive rearch and innovations in milk production, Royal FrieslandCampina has endeavored to ensure that it produces milkbthat will probivide premium nutrition for infants and young children.

Recently, Alaska Milk Corporation (AMC), the leading Filipino milk company who established its brand for 40 years in the country , has joined Friesland Campina, a premium global brand  which has been in the business for over 130 years.   Both arr committed to deliver products which promote proper digestion and absorption that will help infants and young children grow healthy inside and out.

Stranger Danger and Other Safety Tips How to Keep Your Child Absolutely Safe at all Times

It is inevitable for parents, especially mothers, to always think about their children's safety. However, as much as they want to, they cannot always be there to watch over the kids. Take a few helpful tips from the article below to help empower your kids to be safe wherever they may be. Part of being a mom is worrying about your children at all times. While most moms think they can never stop worrying about their kids, there are simple ways to overcome it. Equipping your children with the right knowledge about the world around them is the best way for them to stay safe - no matter where they are. Stay Away from Strangers – Both in the Playground and Online We’ve heard it all before, “don’t talk to strangers.” While statement is true, it is important to define to your children what you mean by “stranger”.[1] Tell your children that a stranger is anyone they don’t know, even if they’re dressed well or if they are polite. Even familiar faces can be strangers if your children feel uncomfortable around them. Kids should know that they shouldn’t take anything from people they are not comfortable with, like treats, or even a ride home. Also, teach your children to not believe stories strangers tell them about their parents, especially ones involving accidents. With the advent of the internet, it’s important to monitor your children’s online social activity. Remind your children that not everyone they meet on the internet is a “friend.” Install kid-friendly software and ensure that they have access to online sites within your reach. Remind your children to tell you immediately if anything on the internet makes them feel uncomfortable, especially if they are being bullied by friends or classmates online. Have a Safe List for Your Kids Kids work well when boundaries are set. It is important to sit down with your children to further discuss your safe list with them. A safe list contains everything they can go home with, places they can play in and outside of your home and a general idea of what’s appropriate or not (whether from a stranger or a family member). Even a safe word within the family, to be used only during emergencies, can be implemented. Being involved in your children’s lives is a good way to keep them safe, whether you are with them or not. Learn Self Defense Let your children gain confidence by knowing they can take care of themselves. Enroll them in self-defense classes such as Muay Thai, Karate, and Taekwondo, not only will they learn how to protect themselves but they would also be able to gain new friends, pick up a new sport, and build their self-esteem.
Another way to keep safe is by making sure that you serve your children only the best. Moms have long trusted Absolute Pure Distilled Drinking Water. Certified by the National Sanitation Foundation, moms who use Absolute are assured with the five-step, state-of-the-art distillation process, ensuring that they are serving nothing but the purest for the ones they love the most.
