Learn more about your child’s gut health with SuperMom Expert Series - Probiotics 101 [Episode 1]

What’s good and bad gut bacteria and how do they affect our children’s gut and immune health? In this episode of the SuperMom Expert Series - Probiotics 101, SuperMom Parent Influencer and Mother of Two, Cheryl Wee talks to Dr Dave Ong, paediatrician of Kids Clinic @ Punggol to find out more!

Here’s what we learn!

1. Good Bacteria vs Bad Bacteria!

Good Bacteria, otherwise known as probiotics, have many important functions:

  • Probiotics help to break down food into nutrients which body can use.
  • Probiotics fight off bad bacteria in our gut to maintain a healthy digestive system.
  • Probiotics also help to strengthen our immunity!

2. An imbalance in good and bad bacteria in the gut can result in a number of problems with your child’s tummy! Watch out for these signs and bring your child to a paediatrician for a check:
  • Child’s stomach may feel full with a lot of gas.
  • Child passes motion too frequently.
  • Child experiences difficulty in passing motion

3. Maintain a healthy digestive system with probiotics! Key ways to maintain good gut health include:
  • Take more fruits and vegetables for dietary fibre and prebiotics.
  • Ensure a healthy diet which is low in processed food, oil, excessive salt and sugar.
  • Child experiences difficulty in passing motion
  • And your probiotics supplements!
