As adults, we know the signs and symptoms of indigestion and how badly it affects our mood. Now imagine your child suffering from it – how are they able to explain how they feel, or identify the discomfort that comes with it?
Activity keeps food moving through the gastrointestinal tract.
Regular drinking of water prevents acid reflux.
Frequent eating of small meals avoids bloating.
Make sure you don’t overload your child’s digestive system.
Papayas, mangoes, honey and pineapples can help with digestion.
