We want to remind every mother that immunity is essential for protection, and is considered as the first line of defense against diseases and external infections. Our children's immunity develops during the early stages of their lives.
Many factors, such as Personal hygiene, avoiding infection, regular vaccinations, reduction of use of medicines and antibiotics, avoiding environmental pollution, getting enough sleep and avoiding physical and mental exhaustion are just a few examples.
Good nutrition practices are an important factor in the growth and development of our children's immune systems, such as:
* Breast-feeding , which provides the elements needed for the immune system's growth and
development, e.g.; oligosaccharides (HMO), vitamins, minerals, proteins, good bacteria, as
well as immune cells and antibodies.
* When we start complementary feeding we should provide foods rich in vitamin A,B,C &D
plus Zinc ,Selenium ,Iron and fibers.
* After the 1st year , in addition to breast milk , we should use Growing Up Milk that contains
oligosaccharides (HMO), omega 3 & 6, vitamins, minerals and proteins required for immune
system growth and development.
Oligosaccharides (HMO) play a critical role in immunity:
* Activating good bacteria, which plays a role in preventing the growth of harmful microbes,
activating immune cells inside the intestine, and producing antimicrobial substances.
* Enhancing the intestinal maturity, which aids in the resistance to infection.
* Activating the immune system and reducing the prevalence of infectious diseases as well as
