Look at Asher’s cute and innocent smile here. We want the best possible of everything for him. Nutrition affects all aspects of a children’s growth, development, and health and we want the set the foundation right and give our child a great start too.
Do you know that the human’s gut is lined with more than 100 million nerve cells, hence it is also known as our “second brain”? Gut too, has a huge impact on whole-body health. A healthy gut contributes to body defense system, heart health, brain health, improved mood, healthy sleep and effective digestion. Good gut bacteria can lead to a healthy gut, but how do we achieve that? You will need both probiotics (the good bacterias) and prebiotics (source of food for the good bacterias).
Nestlé kickstarted the new year with the launch of its new and improved NANKID OPTIPRO® through the “Discover Amazing Possibles” campaign, aimed at encouraging parents to help their children realise the best possible versions of themselves.
The new NANKID OPTIPRO® is scientifically-formulated with a Hundred Million probiotics, as well as new revolutionary ingredient – 2’-FL Oligosaccharide, a type of carbohydrate derived from lactose to help improve children’s gut function.
Scientific studies also show that 2’-FL Oligosaccharide helps strengthen the gut wall, increase good bacteria in the gut and removes bad bacteria.
The launch is followed by a panel discussion with young parents – Mia & Joe, Madam Mary, Dietitian and Miss Katyana, Child Psychologist.
It was an insightful panel discussion on topics such as parenting, child nutrition and child development. Most importantly, I’ve learnt that the first five years of a child’s life are fundamentally important. They are the foundation that shapes children’s future health, happiness, growth, development and learning achievement at school, in the family and community, and in life in general. This is why we need to set the foundation right, as early as possible.
I hope that Asher can have a right start in his gut health, and thus his overall wellbeing. I can’t wait to start his journey of Discovering Amazing Possibles.
NANKID OPTIPRO® comes in two variants – Stage 3 for children aged one to three and Stage 4 for children four years and above. Apart from the newly-added ingredient 2’-FL Oligosaccharide, NANKID OPTIPRO® also contains Optimized Protein, 100 million units of Probiotics, DHA & ARA, and no added sucrose to help support the overall growth and development of a toddler.
The new and improved NANKID OPTIPRO® is now available for purchase exclusively via Lazada, and will be available at retailers across Malaysia at a later date.
