I’m a big believer in probiotics and I take them daily so I was thrilled to find out that Culturelle makes probiotics for kids. Probiotics help to keep the proper balance between good bacteria and bad bacteria in your gastrointestinal tract which reduces digestive upset and boosts your body’s natural defense systems. That’s especially nice during this cold season when the kids can really benefit from improved health and immunity!
Two of my five children are lactose intolerant like I am and I swear by my probiotics, that they help keep me on an an even keel, so I wondered if I could get the kids to take them as well. They’re pretty picky about what they’ll take but Culturelle for kids comes in two different varieties – the packets are powder form and can be mixed with water or juice for children to drink, or they also come in a chewable variety. My five kiddos all enjoy the chewable ones and say they taste great, but I was ready to start mixing up the packets with juice for them if I needed to do that!
My kids like the Culturelle chewables so much that they now ask for them on a daily basis, and I’m happy to know that they’re the #1 pediatrician recommended probiotic brand. The packets are completely flavorless, plus they’re dairy and gluten free, and are recommended for children ages 1 to 3. Children 3 and up can take the chewables, which are sugar, dairy and gluten free, and kids over 100 pounds can take the Culturelle Digestive Health Probiotic capsules that I take.
Culturelle® Kids Probiotics is a natural solution for better digestive and immune health. Not only does it support a child’s digestion, helping to reduce occasional digestive upset, but it also helps to boost digestion and overall digestive health.
Considering that 70% of your immune system is in your digestive tract, a healthy and balanced digestive system plays a vital role in strengthening a child’s overall health and well-being.
