Swallow’s Nest For Babies
hello doc, I want to ask if the swallow’s nest can be consumed for babies aged 8 months?
Hello Hasanah, Thank you for the question.
Swallow's nest is one food that is considered to be highly nutritious and provides a number of health benefits. Swallow nests are made from the saliva of certain swiftlets. The nutrition content of swiftlet's nests is mostly in the form of protein. In addition to protein, swiftlet nests also contain carbohydrates, fats, amino acids, and electrolytes. Some health benefits derived from consumption of swallow's nests are overcoming obesity, overcoming insulin resistance such as diabetes, and overcoming osteoarthritis. However, current medical research has not produced strong evidence to support the above health claims. Furthermore, there are no medical studies that prove this product can be used for infants and their benefits in infants. Therefore, you should not give it to your baby to avoid an unknown effect or impact.
Hopefully this information helps you.
