Are there any good dairy-free probiotics out there for my 3 1/2 year old ds? We did allergy testing on him a week ago, and the results came back that he is mildly sensitive to dairy (score of 2 out of 5). I cut out all dairy from his diet, but then realized that both the probiotics I have (Jarrow brand) are dairy based. Any suggestions? He has eczema and we're eliminating dairy and about 10 other random foods that he scored even lower on.

I can't tell you the exact brand, but I know Whole Foods sells them in the refrigerated section, I've seen a dairy free one specifically, I just cannot remember the name of it.

I am vegan and I always buy dairy free probiotics...I have bought them in many different stores (in many different countries) and have never had a hard time finding them...just ask at your local health food store I am sure they carry them.

I love metagenics dairy free. You can get them online or from a local retailer.

Do I need a special "kids" formula or is the regular adult versions fine now?

The metagenics is all for one. It comes in a powder so you can lick your finger and put it in their mouth nice-n-easy. My dd LOVES it.
