Most parents tend to associate their toddler\u2019s digestive health with a happy tummy. And that\u2019s about it! However, did it ever cross your mind that your toddler\u2019s digestive health goes beyond a healthy tummy? As a matter of fact, his digestive health actually says a lot about his overall health, growth, and development.

Easy digestion will ensure that the nutrients from the foods that your child consumes are optimally absorbed to support his healthy growth and development. Therefore, making sure you pay attention to your toddler\u2019s digestive health is important as his body could run into troubles in absorbing the essential nutrients if you don\u2019t take enough care of it. Improving Your Toddler\u2019s Digestive Health The foods that your toddler eats and the lifestyle that he embraces have a direct impact on his digestive health. Photo credit: Freepik Taking steps to improve your child\u2019s digestive health can help his digestive system function more efficiently \u2013 thus, enhancing his general well-being, boosting his immune system, and supporting his optimal growth. The following section consists of easy ways you can practice to achieve better digestive health for your toddler: 1. Fibre, please! Fibre is the part of food that cannot be digested by the body. It keeps the digestive tract moving along as it should, helps to keep bowel healthy, and prevents constipation. According to the Malaysia RNI 2017, the recommended dietary fibre intake for 1 to 3-year-old children is 14 grams per day. That being said, start sneaking in fibre-rich foods into your toddler\u2019s daily diet, such as whole grain bread, high-fibre cereals, peas, fruits, and vegetables. 2. Eat little and often Photo credit: Freepik Eating a large amount of food may strain and burden your toddler\u2019s digestive system. To ensure a proper digestion, consider serving smaller meals more frequently in a day. Better yet, offer healthy and varied wholesome diet or minimally processed foods to your toddler. 3. Encourage adequate sleep Sleep is necessary for a healthy life and young children in particular need to get sufficient amounts of sleep on a regular basis to maintain good health. The American Academy of Sleep Medicine recommends that toddlers aged 1 to 2 years old get between 11 and 14 hours of total sleep, including naps, every day. If your child does not get enough sleep, he is more prone to digestive challenges and his immune system may be adversely affected too. 4. Water is the way to go Water is important to maintain your child\u2019s health, aid his digestion, and prevent constipation. Proper digestion makes minerals and nutrients more accessible to the body. In line with the Malaysian Dietary Guidelines, children of 1 to 3 years of age are required to drink about 4 glasses a day to stay healthy. 5. Get off the couch and start moving!

Let your toddler run, skip, jump, or dance for at least a few minutes a day at the playground, park, or right in the comfort of your home! Besides the many physiological and emotional benefits that exercise has to offer to your growing child, are you aware that regular exercise actually does support the digestive process as well? A regular physical activity stimulates the digestive tract, whilst increasing intestinal activity \u2013 allowing food to pass through it much quicker. 6.
