Side effects of nutribom
1. Increased risk for allergies
During the first few days of breastfeeding, breastmilk contains colostrum which helps protect the infant’s gut from potential allergies and foreign bodies that contribute to allergies. Also exclusive breastfeeding for the first 6 months reduces exposure to food allergies. If allergies are present in the family’s history most probably your baby will have it too. Baby foods like nutribom, cerelac and NAN increases risk of allergies in babies.
2. Higher risk of obesity
The risk of becoming overweight in children may be reduced by 4% for every month if an infant is breastfed up to 9 months and may continue to benefit till their adult years. Now, just like other refined baby cereals, nutribom fed babies are more likely going to become fat and obese…. Some mothers use this side effect of nutribom to help their baby become fat.
3. Higher risk of diabetes
In comparison to formula fed babies (please don’t be offended or take this wrongly, it is based studies), breastfed infants tends to have a lower risk of developing both type 1 and 2 diabetes later in life, especially those infants ar higher risk of developing the diseases. Just like any other baby foods, nutribom increases a baby’s risk of diabetes.
