Breast milk

Breast milk is the best food for your baby. Breast milk contains valuable nutrients and building blocks, such as easily digestible protein and valuable polyunsaturated fatty acids (LCPs, such as DHA and ARA), which help the development of brain performance and vision. Breast milk also contains natural lactic acid cultures (probiotics) and dietary fibers oligosaccharides (prebiotic). Natural lactic acid cultures colonize the intestine of a breastfed baby and defend it against unwanted germs. This is a barrier function, which can protect breastfed babies from allergies and diseases. Prebiotic dietary fibres serve as "food" for probiotics and contribute to a healthy gut flora.
