I was perusing the Dr. Greene website, and came across this interesting information, which is great to know since we will be starting Kyle on whole milk in just another 2-months
Preventing Colds With The Right Milk
Giving children milk that contains Lactobacillus appears to decrease the rate and severity of respiratory infections, according to a study in the June 2, 2001 issue of the British Medical Journal. Healthy children between the ages of 1 and 6 who attended daycare were randomly assigned to receive regular milk or Lactobacillus milk over the 7 months of the study. The children drank an average of 8-9 ounces per day. The study was carried out in 18 different daycares. Those who got the Lactobacillus milk missed daycare due to illness 11% fewer times. They had 17% fewer complicated respiratory illnesses, and needed 19% fewer courses of antibiotics. The evidence that beneficial bacteria can prevent infections continues to grow. Probiotic milk products and active culture yogurts are an easy way to replenish these beneficial bacteria.
Dave and Fiona welcomed their first child, Kyle Alexander, on the 24th June, 2006, and their second child, Hannah Elise, on the 1st of May, 2008. Previously, both enjoyed time out with friends and time at the coast, but lately, life has been a little more limited to staying at home. Of course, with such beautiful children, we can't complain!
