My son grew up drinking Nido. Now that he's 10, he still drinks milk once or twice a day but I make sure that he does drink daily as much as possible. My Mom tells me that kids and teenagers still need to drink milk and so she makes sure that I always buy milk for my son.
You see, my Mom was overprotective of me when I was a kid because I was very sickly. I didn't really grow up running around, playing with insects, and splashing in the mud. In fact, I was kept in a small bubble to ensure that I wouldn't get sick. When I had my son, I realized that I needed to let him have the childhood that I did not get. I had to let him run around, play with insects, and splash in the (oh my gosh I can't believe I will even write this) mud.
This decision is not easy because I worry about him getting sick and I worry that if I let him go about, he will contract something and I'd blame myself. This is what NIDO hoped to address when they invited us to talk about Nido 3+ Laking Amazing. As everyone who has read my blog for a time would know, I don't just write about Mommy things here. I make sure that when I recommend something to my co-Moms, it is something that B and I both love and support. Luckily, NIDO is definitely something that has been a part of our life.
They had nutritionists in the house whom we could talk to about our health concerns for our children so I took advantage of it and asked about B's health and weight. The first thing they showed me were the 4 Common Nutrition Problems. I am happy to say that B did not fall in any of the 4 categories. Right now, he is neither underweight or overweight. He is also not a picky eater (this will never be tolerated in my home) and neither does he want the same thing over and over again.
However, B does need to have more physical activities and ingest more Lactobacillus in his body and I loved that they had visuals to help explain it to me. As you can see here, there are soldiers who fight off bacteria but if there are only a few, they could actually lose.
Now if they Lactobacillus Protectus, then the soldiers would multiply.
If we add more lactobacillus, fruits, vegetables, and vitamins, then we will the war against bacteria.
This is what can give me extra assurance that I can let B out and play and he will be able to fight back against diseases.
I'm glad the nutritionist that I got was very patient in answering my questions and explaining things to me. I never felt her judge me and she listened to my stories about my son and his eating habits.
Since my kid is 10 years old already, he needs NIDO 5+ enriched with Calci-N to help build healthy bones because it provides better calcium absorption.
