The foods a child eats now could alter their microbiome for life.
That’s what a recent study out of the University of California Riverside suggests
To be fair, the study was conducted in mice. But the researchers think that the findings might translate to our little humans too. Here’s what they found:
👉 Early exposure to sugar and fat altered the gut microbiome in mice
👉 Early exposure to exercise altered the gut microbiome in different ways
👉 Microbiome changes that developed because of diet persisted even after many weeks of switching mice back to a standard diet
👉 Early-life diet had more lasting effects than early-life exercise later
It’s always tricky to know how much we should trust the results of animal studies, but this recent study gives us some good food for thought.
Our microbiome influences everything from digestive patterns to immune function to brain health and mood. If what a child eats during childhood changes their microbiome for life, we should probably think seriously about what we are putting on their plates.
I’m curious. How do you feel about your child’s diet? Let me know in the comments in ONE word. 😊
