Probiotics For Kids

Do any of you have your kids take probiotics? My 9 year old daughters and 5 year old son take vitamins, fish oil and calcium with vitamin D but I was thinking a probiotics may be good to add since the girls are back at school. They would have to be gluten free, casein free and egg free. Thanks!

My daughters- 9 and 4 take Jarrow Formulas Yum-Yum Dophilus. It says it has no wheat, gluten, dairy/egg, fish/shellfish, peanuts/tree nuts and is vegetarian.

I got mine at Whole Foods.

Hope that helps.

I buy powdered probiotics from target. I don't have the name near me but the box is great and they have adult and kids versions. (Culturelle?)

Cost is about 25-30 dollars for 30 packets.

You can put them into cold drinks or food.

They helped my DD SO much when she was colicky and having gas issues.

GNC has some chewable acidolphilous, that I give my kids (its top 8 free). I forget the name of it, and of course, we're out, lol. But its strawberry flavored, and its only like $8 or $9.

I used to give Raven the Rhino FOS & Acidophilus for kids, but they have her on a prescription one now called Bacid.

Both my teens eat yogurt and drinkable yogurt--we were spending a small fortune on Brown Cow and Wallaby, but just discovered that Dannon doesn't have high fructose corn syrup and they like them better--way easier on the wallet.

I personally prefer kefir--it has way more good cultures than even yogurt. You can find many brands at Whole Foods or my local Kroger carries Lifeway and was told they will carry Helios, soon.

Probugs is a kids version of kefir by Lifeway in a portable pouch.

There is also a coconut kefir if you cannot do milk--it's just okay, IMHO.

Cool, lots more replies!

My kids (now ages 10, 10, and 5) are taking the Jarrow suggested by a previous poster. I don't know if it's a fluke, or maybe because they are healthier off gluten, but only one of the three got strep throat last week. One twin was only very mildly sick and their little brother didn't get sick at all.

Usually my daughters get everything going around and when they would little would end up so sick they would be in the hospital when all the neighbors kids were better after three days!

    • Can treatment for Giardia reverse active Celiac
      I haven’t found any large scale studies on this, but only a handful of individual case reports suggesting that in rare cases giardia can temporarily mimic celiac (both the serology & villous atrophy) until it is treated.   I think this is a  complex matter as giardia effects patients differently (most are asymptomatic whilst others suffer from chronic symptoms including malabsorption) for reasons that may not be well understood. In my case - My GI agrees that Giardia can directly cause villous atrophy that cannot be distinguished from Celiac.  As the healing of the villi can be a slow process, I will schedule a repeat endoscopy 6-12 months after my giardia was treated.   Ttg antibodies can also take 6-12+months to completely normalise, especially if the starting levels are high. 6 months would have elapsed at the end of this month, so will schedule a repeat test, hoping for a normal Ttg result to prove the theory.   I have decided to remain on a normal gluten diet until it can be proven that I’m a celiac and not just suffering from a giardia infection.  I have reason to be optimistic as my Gliadin IgA levels are negative (not iga deficient) and also given the sharp decrease in ttg levels 4 weeks after giardia was treated.

      It took all of 3 years before ALL of my symptoms resolved and it was the neuro ones that were the last to go.  If you have been careful about your diet, then you may not be getting glutened as much as you think.  It sounds like you have been careful because you are questioning things you should question to get clarification on.  I am sure if you were doubtful, you would refrain from eating something until you know for sure. Neuro symptoms can last for much longer than other symptoms.  Please be patient because my last neuro symptom was the one that took 3 years.  Have you been tested for vitamin deficiencies?  The B vitamins are important for neuro health, especially B12.
    • Week late aftershock!?
      I had a similar problem, I was glutened after a meal out at the beginning of April and am still experiencing problems, obviously not as bad now, but bad enough.  I have also become intolerant to  xanthan gum since, which cuts down the foods I can eat even more. I'm already intolerant to dairy, soya, and a whole lot of other stuff.  Cyclinglady is right about the auto-immune disorders, and I've noticed I have similar problems to her.  I too, eat easy to digest foods until the glutening symptoms pass. The sinus infection might also be a reaction to the glutening, it effects people in different ways.

      Thanks, I'll check out the information in the link. Do you remember how long you were on a gluten-free diet before your vertigo disappeared? I have been on the diet for 2 years, but I might be glutened from time to time since I am not an expert food label reader. My dizziness still persists.

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!
