The nervous and immune systems of the baby are actively developing even before birth, and after birth the pace of their development does not decrease. Therefore, proper nutrition is necessary to lay the foundation for a child’s health. And while heredity and environment may play a role in causing allergies, breast milk remains the best food and allergy prevention for all babies.
The most common allergy in children is cow’s milk protein (CMP). More and more children in the world suffer from allergies. This is of concern to pediatricians who have developed a number of international guidelines1,2:
if the baby has an allergy to food protein, it should be completely excluded from the child’s diet, and when breastfeeding — from the mother’s diet;
Breast milk is the best food for the baby, and it should be continued, eliminating allergenic foods for the baby from the mother’s diet;
If a child does not have an allergy to CMP, but it is present in the family, formula-based formulas based on partially hydrolyzed protein and oligosaccharide prebiotics are needed for prophylaxis in formula-fed children;
· the diet of formula-fed children with an allergy to CMP should consist of mixtures based on the complete hydrolysis of protein or amino acids;
· children with an allergy to CMP should not be given mixtures with regular proteins and other types of milk;
· If babies with CMP allergy are eating special formulas, they should not be supplemented with cow’s milk protein.
Allergies occur in about 40% of children and depend on the presence in the family.5,6 If your baby has an allergy to CMP, he needs special formulas with deep protein hydrolysis. In this case, the Nutrilon Pepti mixture, a special medical product created on the recommendations of international experts, will help you.1,2,14 Its formula eliminates the cause of an allergy to CMP in children and provides them with good nutrition:
- Fully hydrolyzed whey protein:
often no longer an allergen;12
easier to digest;15
helps to get rid of allergies.16
- Reduced by 50–60% amount of lactose compared to the standard mixture of TM Nutrilon:
· reduces the load on the damaged digestive system;
Reduces the need for lactase, preventing lactase deficiency;
Helps to absorb nutrients.
- Proprietary GOS/FOS Prebiotic Blend:
Protects against allergies and infections in the first years of life.11
helps develop the intestinal barrier;7
strengthens the immune system;4,7
- IQ Pro Fatty Acid Complex:
important for the development of the immune, nervous system and brain;8
stimulates the development of the retina;9
contributes to an increase in IQ.10
— Optimal set of nucleotides:
Helps to restore the work of the gastrointestinal tract after allergies.
necessary for the functioning of cells.
Nutrilon Pepti is well tolerated by 97% of babies with mild to moderate CMP allergies,12 and choosing this formula will help your baby eliminate the cause of the allergy and grow up healthy.
