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!

    • No anti-sm(lupus)? Yes, anti dsDNA is for SLE(lupus). No ENA panel,anti-RNP, anti-SS-A, anti-SS-B, anti histone, scl-70, etc? I'd ask for a referral, if you feel that there is something going on. I think that would be a logical step because of the positive ANA and lack of investigation. 1:640 is definitely positive. 
    • My MCH is always high too. Have some other oddities but doc always say labs are great as well. I dont think they ever really bother with the MCH. I'm also in testing and showed negative on the same ones you did. My IGA is fine though. As far as the other tests, maybe your girls GI can order or you could try your primary. 
    • Hi there!   I follow a low histamine diet that Cycling Lady brought to my attention a long time ago.  Citrus fruits and their juices are histamine releasing foods.  High histamine levels can cause hives just like in an allergic reaction.  Here's a helpful site:   https://www.histamineintolerance.org.uk/about/the-food-diary/the-food-list/ I don't drink orange juice because because of the hives and stomach upset I get from it, and also because I'm type two diabetic and my system can't handle all the sugars in it.  High glucose contributes to inflammation. I also avoid things with added flavors and scents because they often contain sulfur components like sulfites or sulfates.  Corn products are often processed with sulfuric acid.  Some Celiacs, like me, develop a sulfite sensitivity.  Here's a helpful site:  http://www.thepatientceliac.com/tag/celiac-disease-and-sulfite-intolerance/ Garlic and onions are high in sulfites.  People who can't tolerate foods high in sulfites are often deficient in a trace mineral, molybdenum.  Molybdenum is also involved in blood production.  Here's another site:  http://www.whfoods.com/genpage.php?tname=nutrient&dbid=128 So, there's not always a simple answer.  I'm leary of processed foods because you don't really know how they're processed and what really goes into them.  I'd rather stick to fresh foods.  Hope this helps.
    • No, no, no!  Don't cut yourself off from your friends and social life because you feel you can't eat what everyone else is eating!  I can't think of a single bar or restaurant I've been to where I haven't found something to eat.  It may not always be what I would like to order/eat, but I'm not sitting without food while everyone else is eating!  If I'm going to a private party or someone's home where I'm concerned about food selection, I bring my own, tell the hostess and without making a big deal of it, eat what I brought.  Other times I eat a bit before I go, snack on the veggies or other obviously safe food,  and eat when I get home. If I go shopping for the day or somewhere that it's difficult to pick up a quick gluten-free snack, I put a piece of fruit or a gluten-free granola bar in my purse in case I get hungry.   It's only a big deal if you make it one.  I have been gluten-free for 7 years.  My attitude about food is now this:  eating out is strictly a social event. I always find something to order though at times it seems the gluten-free selections are kind of bland, but I won't go hungry.  If I want a good, tasty meal, I make it for myself at home.  There is nothing that I can't duplicate in my kitchen in a gluten-free version.   It's only been a couple of months for you so I'm hoping you will gradually see that this becomes such a way of life that you won't even give it a second thought.  Your meal prep will take less time as you grow accustomed to this--any new diet takes time to learn.  Good luck and hang in there!
