Human milk oligosaccharides or HMOs support the development of a healthy immunity shown by a growing body of evidence. Interestingly, the underlying mechanisms seem also to play a role in allergy. This is further supported by new evidence that points to a promising pathway for HMOs in the context of allergy prevention and management.
Cow's milk protein allergy or CMPA is one of the most common food allergies in infants.

Between 5 and 15 years of age grey matter volume peaks and the brain reaches its final adult volume. This period is marked by the highest rate of development in specific areas of the brain, including those related to complex functions like memory, problem-solving, language, and social behaviors. Brain growth, and development during this period lay the foundation for cognitive, motor, and socio-emotional skills, and academic performance throughout the rest of childhood and adulthood. Brain growth and development during the school years are highly dependent on adequate nutrition, and particularly five essential nutrients: iron, zinc, DHA, folate and vitamin B12. Discover how to nourish the brain during THE TRANSFORMATIVE 10 years.
In the school age years healthy eating habits are acquired by fostering the right behaviors at home and in school. Growth and development of body and brain together with environmental influences shape a child's behaviors, including the foods they eat. And dietary behaviors in turn affect body and brain, in a constant interaction which determines long-term eating habits. Discover how Nutrition and behavior intersect to support lifelong health during THE TRANSFORMATIVE 10 years.
