Story at-a-glance -

  • In children at risk for developing eczema, limiting sugar and supplementing with fermented foods or beneficial probiotic bacteria cut the risk of developing eczema in half compared to those taking a placebo.
  • Giving an infant probiotics may help stave off eczema and other allergic diseases by beneficially altering the early colonization of bacteria in their gut, which may help the child’s immune system to develop and mature.
  • The first way you can encourage your newborn’s gut health to flourish is by breastfeeding. Beyond this, providing abundant probiotics to your infant (and also consuming them during pregnancy) in the form of fermented foods is one of the most powerful ways to restore and maintain your child’s beneficial gut flora.
