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!
