My girls have always had "off" tummies. Since they were little, their tummies were sensitive to so much. Even when I was nursing, they had a hard time with the foods that I ate.
I sure which Culturelle for Kids had been around when they were little (or that I would have known about it). Previously, I would take the adult Culturelle capsules, cut them open and sprinkle it on applesauce or in their drinks.
Now, with the version just for kids stands apart from other probiotics by using Lactobacillus GG. There are so many benefits to probiotics that I appreciate them being formulated just for kids.
- Promotes good digestion
- Maintains regularity
- Supports your immune system
- Helps to return you to optimal health
The directions state to put the powder into any cold food or liquids. I tried several different liquids (milk, orange juice, juice and water) and it never really fully dissolved. #2 even said "Mommy, there’s a rock in my juice" when she saw the powder floating.
So, we put it in their applesauce and orange juice with much, much better results!
Since we’ve started using the Culturelle, I’ve heard "my tummy hurts" less and noticed more regularity. We also haven’t had any illnesses, either. I hope we don’t have any antibiotics soon, but if we do, I’m thinking the Culturelle for kids will definitely come in handy with the undesirable side effects of them.
Do you use probiotics for you? For your kids?
I wrote this review while participating in a Mom Central Consulting blog tour on behalf of Culturelle. I received a Culturelle for Kids product sample and a gift card to thank me for taking the time to participate.
