Raise Them Ready: with resilience and a strong immune system
Prepare your Child for the Future: With Resilience and a Strong Immune System
The world our children are born into today is permanently evolving and changing. They will encounter many opportunities but also many challenges. Therefore, our little ones have to develop their resilience right from the start – and they will benefit from it for their whole lives.
Why is resilience so important?
Resilience enables our children to deal independently and flexibly with future experiences. Nowadays, this ability is more important than ever. The world is constantly changing and we do not know what challenges our children will face in the future. Ensuring your child gets better resilience training ensures they will be able to cope well in the present but also later in life.
How can we promote resilience in children from the beginning?
The best way is to let your child discover the world and gain lots of experience right from the start. Because with every experience, their resilience grows – and lasts a lifetime. Resilience develops in a very simple cycle: every experience leads to more resilience. Having lots of resilience enables them to collect all kinds of new experiences. From baby’s first swimming lesson to your child’s first mountain hike – every early contact with people and the environment supports the development of their resilience.
Today, your baby may be playing in the snow for the first time, getting to know cold temperatures and a wintry environment, and is spending precious time outside in the fresh air. Later on, your child's resilience will be strengthened through experiencing joint adventures such as excursions and hikes in all kinds of weather. Step by step, your child develops their resilience with each new challenge.
The immune system: important for early experiences
An important basis for the development of resilience is a healthy immune system: it makes your child ready from the inside for valuable experiences with the outside world.
At birth, your baby's immune system is still immature. The human immune system develops for a lifetime; it trains and learns – because even strong bodily defenses start small. However, the immune system is essentially shaped by the 3rd birthday. During this time, a balanced and healthy diet will provide your child with all the essential nutrients they need so their immune system can develop optimally – be it through contact with other children or through contact with cold and dirt. You can help your child gain these important experiences by playing and exercising outside in the fresh air even when it's cold and wet and through a natural and not too sterile environment.
Nutrition is important for the immune system
Nutrition plays a particularly important role in the development of the immune system. The continuous supply with valuable nutrients such as vitamins A, C, and D is essential for a healthy immune system. Only with a strong immune system is your child ready to discover the world.
Aptamil’s follow-on milk and growing-up milk are based on 40 years of research and complement a balanced diet with their unique formula. They contain vitamins A, C, and D, which naturally contribute to a healthy immune system.
If children have a strong immune system, parents are reassured when allowing their children to discover the world and thereby develop their own resilience. Aptamil helps parents to prepare their child for the future in the best possible way.
