In recent years, with the liberalization of the state’s two child and three child Fertility Policies, the psychological and physical health of women of childbearing age has also begun to receive more and more attention.
At the 2022 academic seminar on maternal and infant nutrition and psychosomatic health held yesterday, Professor wangzhixu, chairman of the maternal and child nutrition branch of the Chinese Nutrition Society, and hundreds of authoritative experts and scholars from the country in the fields of perinatal, nutrition and child health care discussed how to protect the physical and mental health of maternal and infant populations, especially the relationship between maternal and infant dietary nutrition and physical and mental health. At the same time, fislan FRISO masugar Institute of psychosomatic health was officially launched.
Chen Ge, President of Royal Netherlands fisland China, said at the meeting that the Institute would join hands with and invite experts from the fields of nutrition, obstetrics, pediatrics and spirituality to carry out academic research and exchanges related to maternal and infant psychosomatic health, and build a health education platform to transmit scientific ideas, so as to relieve pressure for new mothers and families. This is also the latest move of fislan to deeply insight and accurately enter the Chinese mother and infant population and deeply cultivate the Chinese market.
New challenges of “multi child age”
At yesterday’s seminar, liliangqiu, executive vice president of China Nutrition and health food association, pointed out that with the gradual liberalization of the national “two child” and “three child” policies, the nutrition and physical and mental health problems of mother and infant populations can not be ignored.
Some experts present at the meeting pointed out that the various pregnancy diseases caused by the birth of two or three children to pregnant women, especially the elderly pregnant women, deserve great attention. The proportion of macrosomia due to poor nutritional control, hypertension and perinatal adverse psychological conditions is increasing year by year.
Data show that about 5%-25% of pregnant women in China are accompanied by perinatal depression, and the incidence of postpartum depression is as high as 13.1%-16.3%. Due to the influence of many factors, such as genetic background, hormone level in the body, nutritional status, family and social environment, 90% of pregnant women will have different levels of psychological stress.
It is worth noting that the mental health of pregnant women has a crucial impact on the health of the fetus and even the growth and development after birth.
Professor Lu Zheng, director of psychiatry of Tongji Hospital Affiliated to Tongji University and chief consultant of important and weak disciplines of psychosomatic medicine in Shanghai, said at the meeting that anxiety, depression and fear are very common in women during pregnancy and childbirth, and mental stress may also lead to psychosomatic diseases such as diabetes, peptic ulcer and hypertension. The adverse emotions during pregnancy and childbirth and the digestive level of infants’ gastrointestinal tract will have a far-reaching impact on children’s temperament and psychosomatic health. Therefore, it is advocated that the mother and infant population should carry out psychological evaluation regularly to find out and intervene in time.
Professor wangzhixu, chairman of the maternal and child nutrition branch of the Chinese society of nutrition, believes that the physical and mental health of mothers is very important to themselves and the fetus. Once they are in an anxiety state during pregnancy, it will significantly increase the risk of postpartum depression, and also lay a high risk for poor growth and development of the fetus, autism and autism.
Maternal and infant psychosomatic gas station
After gaining insight into the changes that have taken place in China since the last few decades under the latest fertility policy for the one-child family, as well as some new challenges faced by the mother and baby population in this process, fislan decided to establish the FRISO meisujia’er psychosomatic health research institute as a platform.
“Strengthening maternal and child nutrition and mental and physical health has become the focus of families and society, and it is also an important policy formulated by the state.” Chen Ge said yesterday that with the opening of China’s three child policy last year, the company found through high-frequency interaction with post-80s, post-90s and post-95s mothers that “babies are easy to take” and “mothers are not anxious” are now the top priorities in small families. In her opinion, families that handle these two things well “have a higher tendency to have two or three children”.
Chen Ge also introduced that FRISO meisujia’er psychosomatic health research institute will cooperate with experts, scholars and social forces to support experts in the fields of nutrition, obstetrics, pediatrics and spirituality to carry out academic research and exchanges related to maternal and infant psychosomatic health. At the same time, it will also build a health education platform to help more research results and scientific concepts be used to serve maternal and infant groups and provide more comprehensive and powerful health protection for local maternal and infant groups.
It is understood that Professor Wang Zhixu and the professional committee of maternal and infant nutrition of China Nutrition and health food association, the sponsor of this seminar, will support FRISO Meisu Jiaer Psychosomatic Health Research Institute for a long time.
In fact, in addition to continuously optimizing and meeting the nutritional needs of pregnant mothers and babies at different stages through iterative formula upgrading, Meisu Jiaer, a brand of infant formula milk powder under fisland, also continues to pay attention to the physical and mental health of Chinese mothers and infants. Through nutrition courses and other forms, actively explore effective ways to “reduce the burden” for Baoma during pregnancy.
Comprehensive nutritional support
Professor wangzhixu elaborated on the relationship between maternal and infant nutrition and psychosomatic health at yesterday’s seminar, and believed that food and nutrition are factors that can not be ignored for the lifestyle and living environment of pregnant and lying in women, as well as the feeding and rearing of infants.
On the one hand, he pointed out the relationship between immunity and digestion and absorption on infants’ early temperament and mental health, and affirmed the role of lactoferrin on infants’ immune system. He believed that when breast milk was insufficient, sufficient lactoferrin from other milk sources could be added to infant formula milk powder to make up for some deficiencies in the development of immunity with the help of exogenous lactoferrin.
In addition, he affirmed that reducing the process and time of heat treatment in the process of formula milk powder can reduce the occurrence of adverse feeding events to a certain extent, thus reducing the crying mood and helping to protect the mental and physical health of feeding infants.
It is understood that, in order to comprehensively understand the nutritional status and health needs of Chinese infants and young children, massuga has done a lot of research and investigation. For example, when the brand found that Chinese infants aged 0 to 3 years old had insufficient iron intake and anemia, it increased the amount of iron in the formula and matched it with sufficient vitamin C and galactooligosaccharides to help absorb iron.
However, when it was found that the proportion of functional gastrointestinal diseases in Chinese infants was very high, misugar reduced the casein mineralization from the milk source, adopted the production process of one-time powdering, strictly controlled the heat processing temperature, reduced the saccharification reaction, and reduced and avoided the gastrointestinal discomfort of infants.
In addition, through research, Metso Jiaer found that the effective dose of lactoferrin in the clinical trial of reducing the risk of respiratory tract and gastrointestinal tract infection in infants was about 0.6 g / L. therefore, the infant formula was developed with reference to this clinical effective dose.
Looking forward to the future, fislan said that it would continue to explore the psychosomatic health and related nutritional needs of the mother and infant population, and promote the implementation of more research results in the Chinese market.
