Just about everyone’s heard of prebiotics, but not everyone knows why they’re important. Find out how they can help your toddler.

Prebiotics

Prebiotics are a type of carbohydrate that's naturally found in foods including some fruits and vegetables. Prebiotics can regulate the absorption of water inside the digestive system. They also feed the good bacteria found naturally in the digestive tract and are helpful for overall digestive health. And because about 70% of the immune system is located in the digestive tract, prebiotics are important to help keep it working effectively to keep your toddler healthy.

Digestive health is important as your child grows and transitions into toddlerhood. Enfagrow® Toddler Transitions and Enfagrow® Toddler Next Step both have Natural Defense® Dual Prebiotics® Blend designed to help support your toddler's digestive health  — which helps support his immune system, too.

The Natural Defense Dual Prebiotics Blend combines two kinds of prebiotics - GOS and polydextrose. This dual prebiotic blend is designed to work together throughout the digestive tract for a longer period of time than one of these prebiotics alone.

At this time, many moms become concerned with hard stools and often discuss this issue with their pediatricians. The great news is that the Natural Defense Dual Prebiotics Blend in Enfagrow promotes soft stools — yet another benefit of nourishing your toddler with Enfagrow.
