are generally thought to be born
with intestines that are sterile or
that, at most, contain a very low
level of microbes?However, the
infant GI tract is rapidly colonized
following delivery. The composition
of the infant gut can vary
significantly based on a number of
factors, including mode of delivery
(cesarean is worse), feeding type
(formula is worse), or due to
antibiotic (worse), prebiotic or
probiotic use (better).

A Healthier Halloween
Shopping for Halloween treats?
Consider purchasing an edible and
non-edible treat. A study we always
refer to, from Journal
of Nutrition Education and Behavior,
states that when given the option,
children between the ages of 3 and
14 choose toys over candy during
trick or treating.
with offering non-edible treats,
make sure the edible treat is as
healthy as possible. A dark
chocolate square, such as the
Endangered Species brand, is
actually considered healthful.
tips for your own children:
Give them a snack before trick
or treating to avoid cravings.
Give them your own treats to eat
at school or after-school
Offer them five or ten cents for
every piece of candy they
collect as an alternative to
eating all of it!
