10 Most effective home remedies for diarrhea in kids

Diarrhea is something which bothers every parent, as it drains too much fluid and makes your little one feel weak. It is a digestive problem that causes loose and watery stool, three to four times a day. Diarrhea in kids is a common condition, which can lead to dehydration or even more serious problems.

Diarrhea  is common in all age groups of kids and is unavoidable because you can’t stop them from playing and getting infected. Infection from viruses like rotavirus, bacteria like salmonella and rarely parasites like giardia are the most common causes of diarrhea in kids.

Causes of Diarrhea in kids.

The suspected causes of diarrhea in kids are:

  • Virus, commonly called stomach flu.
  • Bacterial infection
  • Food intolerance like lactose intolerance or gluten intolerance
  • Food allergy
  • Reaction to medicines.
  • Weaker digestive system.
Symptoms of diarrhea in kids:

Diarrhea can be acute or severe, where acute diarrhea lasts for not more than a week. Severe or prolonged diarrhea lasts longer and  has many other signs. Symptoms of diarrhea in kids may vary from child to child. Generally the symptoms may include.

  • Upset stomach
  • Loose and watery stool
  • Abdominal pain
  • Vomition
  • Bloating
  • Cramping
  • Bloody stool
  • Dehydration

  • Severe stomach pain.
  • Increase in the baby’s body temperature more than 101 degree Fahrenheit.
  • Blood in stool.
  • If the baby is losing weight.
  • If there are symptoms of dehydration in a baby.
Tips for diarrhea in kids:

Rehydration: Rehydration is the process of restoring lost water or fluid to the body. The World Health Organization (WHO) and UNICEF recommended Oral Rehydration Salt (ORS) as essential for clinical treatment of acute diarrhea. ORS treats dehydration caused by severe diarrhea through the replacement of lost fluid, salt, sugar, potassium and other nutrients. Ask your doctor about what type and quantity of ORS to be used.

Maintain hygiene: The most important thing is to maintain a hygienic surrounding. Keep every belonging of your child clean and properly sterilized as far as possible. Proper handwashing can help prevent diarrhea.

Developing immunity: To boost up your kid’s immunity to fight infections just stick to nutrient rich foods, probiotics and follow their vaccination schedule.

Home remedies and foods to overcome diarrhea

Besides keeping your baby hydrated, it is also important to take care of their diet. Offer small meals to your baby at regular intervals. Foods rich in carbohydrates help to maintain the energy level of the body during diarrhea. Potassium rich foods are also important, which may be lost in large quantities through diarrhea. Here is the list of foods that you can offer to your baby during diarrhea:

1.Sugar salt solution:

The body loses a lot of sugar and salt during diarrhea, which is the main cause of dehydration in kids. The first home remedy for diarrhea is homemade sugar salt solution. Boil one liter water let it cool, now add one teaspoon of salt and 8 teaspoons of sugar. Give this solution in regular interval. This is an excellent remedy to keep your baby hydrated during diarrhea.

2.Banana:

It is best to give during diarrhea as it helps to harden the stool. Banana is the rich source of potassium, which helps to balance electrolytes lost due to frequent loose motions. It is a rich source of iron and fiber which contributes to a healthy digestive tract. It is a superfood which can be used as a complete plant to treat digestion. (How to use banana stem in food everyday?)

3.Buttermilk:

Buttermilk is rich in calcium, vitamin D, vitamin B12, protein, carbohydrates and low in fat. It has great probiotics properties that help to increase the production of good bacteria in the digestive tract, which improves kids gut health, boosts immunity and prevents acidity. It helps to ease the discomfort in the digestive tract. (Nutritious summer drinks for kids keep hydrated)

4.Boiled potato:

Potatoes are easy to digest and best to give your baby during diarrhea as it is high in carbohydrate and provides adequate energy that is lost during loose motion.

5.Coconut water:

It is a good source of vitamin C, magnesium, calcium, potassium, fiber and natural enzymes, which promotes proper digestion. It is rich in nutrients and electrolytes, which makes it an excellent choice to control dehydration. (Coconut remedy for cough for kids)

6.Nutmeg:

Nutmeg or Jaiphal has antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties, which helps to reduce microbial infection and reduces intestinal inflammation.

Give your baby a pinch of this powder with some water. This is also great to treat cold and cough. (Foods and remedies to help with cold and flu)

7.Ginger juice:

Ginger has antibacterial properties that help heal internal infections. This is a reason why ginger juice stands to be effective in treating diarrhoea in children. Add some grated ginger to 500ml of boiling water. Drain the water and let it cool . give sip of this drink to your child throughout the day

8.Lemon juice:

While suffering from diarrhoea, a glass full of lemon juice can help ease the symptoms by neutralising the acids in the stomach and countering bacterial infections.

What are Probiotics foods for Gut Health?

What are probiotics foods? Probiotics are live bacteria naturally occurring in food that are good for you, your digestion and your GUT. According to a study, there are approximately 300 trillion bacteria living inside your body. Most of them reside in your gut and majority of them are quite harmless, some are helpful and a small number of them cause diseases. Whenever you get an infection, it is a sign that bad bacteria are affecting your system out of balance. At this point of time good bacteria helps in eliminating those bad ones and maintaining the balance of good bacteria again. Probiotics are the best way to flourish good bacteria in your body.

Most people consider bacteria to be a negative word. They thought that bacteria only made you sick. But Probiotics are those good bacteria that help you fight off diseases causing bad bacteria and restore the balance of both. Food habits, lifestyle and antibiotics, all of them impact the gut health of your body. Your body loses good bacteria when you fall sick and take antibiotics. At this time probiotics can help to maintain the amount of good bacteria in the gut again. The two specific types of bacteria found in probiotics are Lactobacillus and bifidobacterium. Probiotics also promote the production of natural antibodies in the body. There is no recommended daily intake for probiotics, so there is no way to know exactly what quantity is best. Therefore, add as many probiotic rich foods to your daily diet as you can. (Antioxidant rich foods that kids must eat everyday)

What are probiotics foods benefits:
  • Balance the friendly good bacteria in the gut and improve digestion.
  • Helps in stomach discomforts such as gas, bloating, diarrhea, constipation, heartburn and stomach ache. It reduces the risk of severity of diarrhea from a number of different causes.
  • Research shows that taking probiotics on a regular basis improves the symptoms of mental health disorsssders like depression, anxiety, stress etc. (More foods to manage stress and body ache?)
  • Probiotics may reduce the symptoms of eczema, by restarting the disrupted immune system. (Foods and remedies to manage skin rashes?)

Yogurt:

Yogurt is one of the best sources of probiotics, which helps in strengthening the digestive tract and promotes gut health. It is high in protein, calcium, vitamins and probiotics which can enhance the good bacteria in the gut. Yogurt is the best food for kids’ gut health.

Kefir:

Kefir i a fermented milk drink similar to a thin yogurt that is made from kefir grains, which are high in good bacteria. The process of making is similar to yogurt, but the fermentation process in Kefir is for 24 hours. The result is not a sour curd, but rather a tasty one. You can also load it up with nuts, seeds and berries to make a shake high in antioxidants, probiotics and prebiotics. (Recipe of kefir with hidden fruits, nuts and seeds)

Fermented food:

People have been using fermentation techniques from ages to boost food’s shelf life and to increase its nutritive values. It’s a process through which microorganisms like yeast and bacteria convert the carbohydrates in the food to acids, which act as a natural preservative and promotes the growth of good bacteria. They are the best food to treat digestive disorders. Some fermented foods are kimchi, made from fermented vegetables such as radish and cabbage; it’s a popular Korean dish. Miso is a Japanese seasoning, made from fermented soybeans. Sauerkraut is a traditional food of Europe and made from fermenting finely chopped cabbage. Traditional buttermilk is the leftover liquid you can get during the making of butter and contains lots of probiotics. (Recipe of cauliflower pizza)

Cheese:

Cheese is good for kids’ gut health. There are many kinds of cheese which are prepared by fermentation, but all do not contain probiotics. Only soft cheeses made up of unpasteurized milk, such as cheddar, mozzarella and Swiss are rich in probiotics. The longer the cheese ages the more beneficial bacteria develops in it for your gut health. (Which cheese is better to consume?)

South Indian cuisine:

It’s good news for you, if you love south Indian foods like idli and dosa, as most of the south Indian dishes are rich in probiotics. Idli, dosa and other such foods are prepared by fermenting rice and lentils, which increases the bio-availability of its minerals and helps the body to easily absorb the nutrients.

5 Ways and food for healthy gut of your child

Almost all of the nutrients that we get from foods are absorbed by our gut. It plays an important role in keeping kids healthy, both physically and mentally. Kids gut health is vital for their overall well being as it influences many aspects of health including metabolism, immune system, nervous system and digestive tract. so feeding food for healthy gut of kids is very important. Child gets his/ her gut microbiome (living bacteria in gut) at the time of birth and it is set up in early childhood. Children’s microbiome (living bacteria in gut) remains flexible before the age of four or five. This is a good time to build a strong and healthy gut among them.

The key nutrients absorbed in the gut are iron, protein, carbohydrates and fat. All these nutrients are essential for kid’s overall growth and development. Most of the bacterias in our body are good for us. A healthy gut contains healthy bacteria that not only helps in proper digestion, but also fight with infectious disease causing bacteria, virus and fungi (bad bacteria). Kids gut health says a lot about their internal health.  If you want to set your child up for a lifetime of good health, it is essential to flourish kids gut health with healthy bacteria. According to a study, having good bacteria in the gut can improve immune system, hormones, depression and provide several other health benefits like healing, weight gain for kids.

 Signs of an unhealthy Gut

There are many factors that affect kids gut health such as eating too much processed and high sugar food, stress, too little sleep and taking excessive antibiotics. All of these lead to damage to kids gut health which results in many health issues. Here are some common problems that may occur due to unhealthy gut:

Stomach discomfort:

If your child has symptoms such as gas bloating, diarrhea, constipation, heartburn and stomach ache, these can be a sign of an unhealthy gut and it is due to the bacteria living inside gut, intestines, stomach, and colon. These bacteria are called microbiome and symptoms of stomach discomfort occur when the balance of bacteria is not right. (How to know if the digestive system needs help?)

Craving for sugar:

It has been studied that gut bacteria releases special proteins that are similar to hunger regulating hormones (leptin and ghrelin) which affect both your kids food craving and mood. When you take a high sugar diet, the amount of good bacteria in your gut decreases and this imbalance can cause more craving for sugary food, which results in further damage to your kids gut health. (How does sugar and sugary foods can harm the bones of the child?)

Skin irritation:

Gut health plays a vital role in keeping your skin clear and healthy. The bacteria in the gut influence the balance of skin bacteria. Imbalance of gut bacteria can cause skin issues in both kids and adults. Skin condition like eczema and dryness may occur due to unhealthy gut. (Home remedies to solve allergy in kids)

Sleep:

An unhealthy gut can also affect your sleep and leave you feeling tired during the entire day. Almost all of the body’s serotonin (a happy hormone that affects sleep) is produced in the gut. So if the gut is imbalanced, it may lead to sleep deprivation. (Foods that can help with sleep)

Immunity

70-80% of immune cells are located in the gut (large intestine). This is also home to 100 trillion bacteria (gut microorganisms). There is enough research linking gut bacteria to immunity. The shift in lifestyle, rising pollution, use of antibiotics, and processed food consumption has all together impacted the quality of bacteria in our gut. This has contributed to compromised immunity in kids and adults. (Foods to increase immunity in kids)
