Latest studies on biotics and infant nutrition
The first 1000 days of life lay the foundation for a child’s future health. During this critical period, the infant’s gut microbiome and immune system develop rapidly.
Multiple factors can impact this development in early life, such as early exposure to antibiotics or mode of delivery. For example, infants born by cesarean section have a delayed colonization and microbial dysbiosis, impacting growth and development.
Nutritional strategies, like intervention with biotics, offer the opportunity to restore the compromised gut microbiota playing a role in supporting the development of a balanced gut microbiota and immune system.
At Danone Nutricia, we continuously conduct research about the effect of biotics on the microbiota composition in early life.
