9.28.2021 0

Digestive health is essential when it comes to a high level of well-being, which can only be achieved through prevention. That's why establishing good habits from a young age is so important. While it's true that bowel problems become more common over the years, especially after the age of 55, more and more children and adolescents have digestive problems that risk becoming chronic.

An estimated 15% children and youth in developed countries suffer from digestive disorders. "It is important to teach children good nutritional and health habits, as this will largely determine their digestive health and overall health in childhood and adulthood."

  • A balanced diet rich in fruits, vegetables, legumes and cereals

Obviously, needs vary by age and growth stage. As children grow, they should eat a balanced and varied diet rich in vegetables and fruits, legumes, seeds and cereals. Proper intake of healthy fats with unrefined vegetable oils, preferably extra virgin olive oil, and adequate protein intake is also important. Likewise, exercise and sports are also among the healthy habits that should be adopted from an early age. As, of course, guarantees the best possible rest at the end of the day.

  • Avoid excess weight and have good emotional health

It is important to avoid being overweight, which affects 30% of children and adolescents, a percentage that continues to rise every year as a result of poor nutrition and a sedentary lifestyle. "Obesity causes intestinal dysbiosis, as well as many other health problems." It is also particularly important for children to learn how to cope with stress, as this will ensure good emotional health in childhood and adulthood. "Considering that the brain and the gut are closely connected and interconnected, emotional stability is largely equivalent to digestive stability."
