Get Tough on Tummy Trouble!
Children often come into close contact with each other, which means bacterial and viral infections such as Rotavirus – one of the main causes of gastroenteritis, spread quickly via dirty hands or contaminated food and drink. Also, children often pick up tummy upsets when on holiday.
In fact, stats show that 10% of children under five visit their doctor due to short-term (acute) diarrhoea each year in the UK. These infections can easily be passed on between family members, so it’s vital to treat diarrhoea as soon as possible.
