CUHK Releases Results of 'Survey on Toddler Health in Hong Kong'
Date:5/25/2009

suring a toddler's health and development. However, when making dietary decisions there is a need to understand the importance of various ingredients. Parents tend to put a lot of stock in supplements such as DHA for brain development, but they overlook equally if not more important ingredients such as probiotics, which are crucial for regulating digestive health and boosting immunity.

"In addition, parents need to look at where ingredients come from. Cleaner, purer natural environments will produce ingredients such as milk that are more nourishing and beneficial for humans. For example, according to the recent 2008 Environmental Performance Index (EPI) conducted by Yale University, Switzerland ranks #1 out of 149 countries based on environmental health, air pollution, water resources, biodiversity and habitat, productive natural resources, and climate change, while countries typically perceived as having the best natural environments, such as New Zealand and Japan, ranked #7 and #21 respectively. This demonstrates the amount of information parents need to take into account when making decisions regarding their children's diets."

Mr. Schipper stated that Nestle has developed a high-quality probiotic, Bifidus BL, which has been shown to stimulate immune response, reduce inflammatory reactions in children suffering from allergies, provide healthy gastrointestinal environment and help children have more desirable soft bowel movements. The clinical studies on Bifidus BL were developed by a team of 300 nutritionists and scientists at the Nestle Research Center in Lausanne, Switzerland, one of the world's leading research centers in the areas of food, nutrition and life sciences, using local natural ingredients. Probiotic Bifidus BL will be included in the company's new Swiss-made growing up milk EXCEL.
