Keto Diet Facts & Tips

My doctor suggested antibiotics for my child; should I give them?

Antibiotics given to children can potentially increase the risk of certain things later in life, such as:

• Depression

• Autism

• Anxiety


What you can do:

  • Be sure the antibiotics are necessary

  • Make sure the child doesn’t consume foods that contain antibiotics (by purchasing foods that are organic, grass-fed and antibiotic-free)

  • If the child has to take an antibiotic, make sure they also take a probiotic at the same time, and after they stop taking the antibiotic

  • Allow the child’s immune system to learn from the environment

  • Keep key nutrients high (zinc, calcium and vitamin D)
