#HappyTummies Mom Bloggers Meet By Enterogermina
Would you be surprised if I tell you that every one in three kids frequently suffer from diarrhoea?
Diarrhoea is a very common problem in children. It is mostly caused by an infection in the intestines that leads to crampy belly pain and watery motion. Sometimes seasonal changes, unhygienic conditions, travel, etc can also be its trigger.
Most new parents donot usually know what to do when the child is down with diarrhoea. I remember the first time my twins (A&A) caught the stomach infection, I was totally clueless about how to tackle it. We had just returned from our vacation and they both caught the infection together. They didn’t eat anything for almost two days and cried constantly due to stomach pain. Unable to handle the situation myself, I had to rush them to an emergency and seek an expert’s advice.
I recently attended #HappyTummiesMeet for mom bloggers in Mumbai that aimed to spread more awareness on the same. The objective of the meet was to make mothers share their experiences and help them understand the right ways to tackle diarrhoea with Enterogermina. I attended this meet with A&A and it turned out to be an insightful session for them and me.
Happy Tummies Meet By Enterogermina
It was an informative event with Dr Zinal Unadkat, a leading paediatrician from Mumbai, sharing her expertise on gut health in children and throwing light on management of diarrhoea. She explained in detail about the various types of stools and the main causes of diarrhoea in kids. Highlighting the red flags when a mom should be alarmed, she mentioned that sometimes children with diarrhoea face other symptoms too like fever, loss of appetite, headache, nausea, etc which require immediate attention and cure.
Diarrhoea can be managed by increasing zinc intake, feeding breast milk to young kids, using boiled water and giving them fresh juices. Dr. Zinal also emphasized on the relevance of probiotics like Enterogermina in having a healthy gut. Taking probiotics as soon as possible during and after diarrhoea can help boost the recovery process.
Enterogermina is one such oral probiotic that helps to restore stomach balance and is Paediatrician’s No.1 Choice. Watch the video below to know more about it or visit their Facebook page.
Fun and Learning at Happy Tummies Meet
Both mommies and kids learnt a lot from this meet. While I could get some of my doubts clarified and understand more about diarrhoea management, A&A too had their share of fun and learning.
During the event, some interesting activties were organized for kids to make them understand about healthy and junk food. They had to differentiate healthy food from junk food, throw the junk food in the trash and put the healthy food in their favorite character Popeye’s mouth. In a unique and fun way, they were made to understand how they should avoid the unhealthy food and consume the healthy ones everyday. A fun skit was also presented to make them understand about good bacteria and bad bacteria.
Post the event, I found myself better equipped to answer all the queries A&A had about the good and bad bacteria and could explain them all about healthy food . They now know that a probiotic like Enterogermina is a good bacteria that helps manages Diarrhoea.
