The Gut-Bone Axis
Dr Nicolas Bonnet and Dr Marie-Noelle Horcarjada from the Nestle Research center discuss how the gut can influence bone health via gut microbiome – this is the gut-bone axis. Gut microbiome plays a role in the biological process, such as nutrition absorption, metabolism and growth. This is a fundamental role as the microbiome regulates the absorption of nutrients required for bone formation such as calcium. Discover the parallel relationship between gut health and gut health.
Cow’s Milk Protein Allergy - Diagnosis & Management
Cow's milk protein allergy or CMPA is one of the most common food allergies in infants. CMPA is also a real challenge for clinicians to rapidly diagnose those truly affected and to identify those who will benefit from the management of cow's milk protein allergy.
HMOs in Allergies: Current Understanding
HMOs support the development of healthy immunity shown by a growing body of evidence. The underlying mechanisms also seem to play a role in allergy. This is supported by new evidence that points to a promising pathway for HMOs in the context of allergy prevention and management.
Introduction of Highly Allergenic Foods in a High-Risk Population
Delayed introduction of complementary feeding for high-allergenic foods does not reduce allergy risk, as evidenced in the LEAP, EAT and PETIT clinical trials. It was found that early introduction of allergenic foods, between 4-6 months of age, was beneficial in high-risk infants.
How to Make Children’s Diets Healthier and More Sustainable
Child nutrition has improved overall in recent decades. However, reductions in stunting and wasting have been offset by a rise in childhood obesity, making the diets of most children in many countries inadequate. Overlapping malnutrition issues are particularly prevalent in poorer communities. Climate change also threatens food security. Therefore alongside changes in food systems and a multi-sectoral approach, early interventions are recommended.
