Getting it right from the start

While most parents are aware of the importance of nutrition when it comes to children’s health, few think about bacteria and the role they play in children’s health.

The fact is that good bacteria play a vital role in supporting a child’s immune system, promoting healthy digestion, and helping maintain a balanced gut microbiota.

Probiotics for lifelong health

Introducing good bacteria into your child’s diet through fermented foods and/or daily probiotic supplements can help foster the growth of good bacteria and establish a foundation for lifelong health. Certain probiotic supplements promote a healthy gut environment by inhibiting the growth of harmful bacteria, reducing the risk of gastrointestinal infections and diarrhea in children.*

In addition, specific probiotic supplements can help strengthen the immune system of children and protect against infections and allergies.* Finally, probiotics for children also aid in digestion and nutrient absorption.

Choosing probiotics for children

Choosing the right strains and formulations of probiotics for children depends on their age and health needs. Probiotic-rich foods such as fermented foods can be incorporated into their diet.

Probiotic supplements for children are available in various forms such as chewable tablets, capsules or liquid drops.
