We all want what is best for our children. In our society today, we see a lot of sick kids. At least 2 children in every Kindergarten classroom have an allergy. Over 1 million children in the U.S. have Type 1 Diabetes. The rate of obesity is at an all time high and doubles as children grow from toddlers to teens. And 3.12 million children have eczema.
How did we get here?
We’re unhealthy, all of us! As a nation, we are unhealthy. Is there anything we can do to fix this issue?
We can always be proactive by eating right and exercising and instilling these values in our children. My parents were extremely healthy growing up. When my friends were all eating pizza, I was eating chicken breast and veggies. My Mom shopped at Whole Foods way before it was cool, and she and my Dad both worked out every day, and still do! My dad ran a marathon just after his 50th birthday.
As an teenager and now an adult, their influence made me want to be an overall healthy person. I got into clean eating in college and worked out every day even while living in a dorm. It led to me eventually working in the fitness industry for Orangetheory and continuing a healthy lifestyle. I have my parent’s good example to thank for my own healthy habits. I want to provide the same example for my children, and I can start as early as right now.
In addition to healthy eating and exercise, I want to make sure my babies are getting all they need through proper care and vitamins. One of the things I’ve always struggled with is an unhealthy gut and stomach issues. My stomach was upset more often than not and I was sensitive to a lot of foods. But then, I started paying attention to and taking care of my gut. I started taking probiotics every day, and making sure Sawyer did as well (read about kid-friendly probiotics here). An unhealthy gut is linked to so many things. Depression, anxiety, irritable bowel syndrome, allergies, bloating and overall discomfort, weight gain, and more.
I take probiotics and drink a lot of kumbucha to keep my gut healthy and so do Sawyer and my Husband. But what about Oliver?
Oliver, my 3 month old, can have a healthy gut too, right? And by starting him on probiotics early, I can set the tone for the rest of his life, as hopefully, a healthy and happy one.
I found Evivo.
Evivo is a probiotic made especially for breastfed babies. Evivo is clinically proven to restore a baby’s gut microbiome to it’s original, natural state. It transforms special carbohydrates found in breastmilk to promote the growth of B. Infantitis.
B. Infantitis is a good gut bacteria that is missing in most babies. This causes an imbalance in baby’s gut, although there aren’t usually any symptoms, so we never know! Once B. Infantitis is restored in the gut, it reduces the potentially harmful gut bacteria that is linked to eczema, allergies, diabetes, and obesity. If this good gut bacteria is established before your baby is weaned from breastfeeding, they’re more likely to develop a healthy metabolism and immune system later in life.
There are just too many benefits to count that come from ensuring your baby has a healthy gut. Who knew something as simple as a probiotic could possibly help combat things like childhood obesity! These first 6 months of your baby’s life are so critical. Start them off right with Evivo.
An Evivo starter kit comes with everything you need. You simply mix 1 sachet with 3-5mL of breastmilk, and give to your baby using a syringe. Everything (minus the breastmilk, that’s all you Mama!), is included.
