56 – All about gastro with Luka & Kate

Gastro… the word that sends you running for the hills (or the toilet!), but unfortunately seems to strike most families from time to time (unless you’re Kate who somehow seems to have avoided it so far).

We receive so many questions about gastro each week – what to eat, how to recover, are there any supplements to take – so we decided to dedicated a whole episode to the delightful topic. And just a reminder, if you have any questions you would like answered in our “HELP!” segment – whether about nutrition, health, parenting, or anything on your mind, them please send them to podcast@boobtofood.com

For those who are tuning in for the first time, a little about us…

In this podcast we discuss

  • What is gastro and any red flags to be aware of
  • The importance of hydration and some ways to prioritise it for different ages
  • Whether we should be eating during the acute phase and what to offer
  • How to prevent it from spreading, and tips for managing it when the whole house is unwell
  • Supplements that may help before, during and after
  • How to recover and replenish nutritionally after gastro
  • and so much more…

Please note – the information presented in this podcast is general in nature and should not be considered a substitute for medical advice.

Today’s episode was brought to you by Mini + Me. Designed by parents and backed by science, Hydramama is the drink you’ll need to support you through everything from gastro to labour, breastfeeding, post workout, or whenever you please. A new age isotonic drink, Hydramama uses bioavailable water-soluble forms of vitamins to help ensure the best level of absorption. Think of it as a tasty drink that has the added benefits of Electrolytes, Folate, Vitamin B6 and Vitamin C. We cannot decide on a favourite flavour… but if we had to choose, we would probably go with Blackcurrant… but seriously, you should try them all!
