Almost every parent of a young child has heard the infamous “my tummy hurts” comment. The problem with kids and “tummy aches” is that it’s hard for them and parents to know if it’s due to something they ate or to illness. I have found that with my kids the use of a probiotic is beneficial in keeping their digestive track healthy and results in less tummy problems or issues. As an adult I take a probiotic daily and feel it is especially beneficial when taking antibiotics.
I am very blessed that my kids have not had to take antibiotics often. In fact I think my seven-year old has only taken them once at 3 years of age and my younger child once as well. If they do have to take them, using a probiotic is something I would do because I believe it helps derail the side effects of antibiotics.
Finding a probiotic for kids that’s gentle and tastes great can be a challenge. I recently was introduced to FlorastorKids, a yeast-based probiotic supplement that is gentle enough to use on children as young as 2 months old. The handy powder packets make it easy to take anywhere and mix into almost any drink or soft food.
Each powder packet contains 250 mg of active Saccharomyces boulardii lyo. Florastor and FlorastorKids are vegetarian and gluten-free and unlike yogurt and other bacterial probiotics do not require refrigeration nor are they compromised by antibiotic use.
The tutti-frutti flavored powder makes it ideal to mix with juice or in foods like applesauce or other pureed fruits or soft foods. My kids did not even notice anything different when I mixed it in their juice. We see a benefit already and they are having less “tummy aches” and seem to be more regular. I like how convenient the packets are and just how easy they are to mix into drinks and soft food.
