Probiotics For Kids
0

10 posts in this topic

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!

    • I tried the iodine test but couldn't leave it on very long because it itched too much. I left it on maybe 30 minutes lol. Did anyone try it and have the same response??
    • Had my scope today. Dr said my esophagus is damaged and stomach inflamed. Waiting on biopsy results. Taking protonic and flagyl and he said to go ahead and try cutting gluten out to see if that helps. Thanks for the feedback everyone! 
    • Welcome to the club you never wanted to join! The good thing about this club is that you don't have to take any pills, get radiation or chemo, or stick yourself with a needle every day. Things could be much worse than this. Does your brother live close? If so he could go to your same savvy doc. That would be great! Also what about your mom?
    • Hi There! I am Aly and I have suffered seriously for about 4 years with an huge increase in symptoms. I just recently started a gluten free diet a few months ago and I am sure I make mistakes because I feel it when I do. Your symptoms are a lot like mine and after many blood tests and visits to Neurologist still no answers. They diagnosed with relapse/remission MS for all these years and now say its not that. It's Auto-immune but no answers. They never tested me for Celiac's but A friend suggested I try going gluten free. Here are my symptoms below.  See if you relate or if anyone can relate. Heat Sensitivity, Nerves jumping in face and eyes, sometimes pain and redness around the skin of eyes, kinda pinkish.... occasional trimmers coupled with loss of coordination and balance along with in and out slurred speech, a other varying waves of relapse include Extreme fatigue and a huge fog comes over me. I can't sit up or stand without getting dizzy and feel like passing out. For a few days of the relapse It's just bed rest. The other parts are off and on having to use cane. Up and down, symptoms change but eventually the waves grow dim and I go back to being normal for a while. Things seem to get exacerbated when I do to much like go more than 4 -5 hours without taking a break and resting, lifting anything to heavy...so it seems to be straining things lead me to relapse. I used to be go go go...on the run but life has changed and I find that although I am eating gluten free and being careful not to relapse, I entered another a month ago and I am having to get IV steroid infusion tomorrow to break the cycle of this one. Just when I think I am beginning to feel better and go do something I go right back down. Its seems Gabapentin, Baclofen, and LOTS of rest only get me where I need to be again. It's frustrating. I wanted to share as well so that we can combine forces to get some answers! I have decided to go to a Allergy Clinic of sorts to try and get tested for environmental and food allergies. I am sorry you do not have funding for care. See if there is local clinic that can at least run some preliminary blood work on you. I am not sure if you can see one now in your state being 17 but there is usually a 211 or a 311 line in most cities that will give you the list of places you can go for free or on sliding scale. See if they will run any allergy panels as well. I have found that we have to be proactive in our own care because sometimes there is no simple answer and the more we talk one another with the research sometimes we do on own, we find out more than 4 years of going to a doctor could ever tell you. Thanks for all your input here. I look forward to being a member and helping where I can! I will send updates as I get them. Blessings to you all! Aly
