Why is it advised to wait until the child begins to have a varied diet to begin these products?
Because the child’s digestive system is immature. The diversification of diet, which occurs gradually in accordance with the recommendations of the pediatrician, allows new, previously unknown elements to be introduced gradually, so that the digestive system learns to identify them, digest them and assimilate them, without generating “food rejects” (which can, for example, manifest as allergies). The drinkable Arkokids® Organic solutions intended for children have been created with organic, 100% plant-based ingredients.
