Anyone have any suggestions of good probiotic supplements for kids (DS is 3 1/2), besides the gummy-type kind?
I do give him the Lifeay Kefir yogurt, but do they actually sell supplements too? I checked out their site and didn't see that they sold them.
Also, when giving probiotics, is that something you need to consult the doctor for? I didn't think you need to but I was just on Mercola's site and he said to check with your doctor or ped first
I think the *check with your doctor* is something that helps them avoid any legal issues with things they write.Unless there is an allergy to milk I can not imagine the kefir causing a problem.
No,they do not seem to sell anything in pill or powder form,but I have read the *activity* of such probiotics is far lower than that of the live cultured milk and soy products.
You are lucky your child takes the lifeway.My son will only drink it as a medicine in one of those medicine measuring cups,lol.
Our favorite is Primal Defense Kids by Garden of Life, because it has S. Boulardii in it.
