Average toddler falls sick up to 8 times a year:

Gut health is an important facet of a child’s immune system.

As parents, you have a huge role to play in ensuring your child’s long-term health. The most important facet of a child’s health is his immune system. As a baby, his immune system is not fully developed, making him more susceptible to infections and illnesses. As he grows older, he will be continually exposed to a variety of germs and bacteria as he interacts with  with other children. This makes the need for a strong healthy immune system a top priority. One way to ensure your child grows up with a healthy immune system is to support his gastro-intestinal health. This is crucial because about 2/3 of all immune cells are stored and produced in the gastro-intestinal tract, often referred to as Gut Associated Lymphoid Tissue (GALT).
