Kids Gut-Buddies - children's probiotic powder

£16.98Price
30x 1g powder sachets: 1 sachet to be given to the child daily with or after food for a period of at least 15 days, or as advised.

Can be added to food, water, milk or juice.

Store in a cool, dry place out of direct sunlight.

A child-specific probiotic in tasteless powder form, suitable for babies, toddlers and children of all ages. It comes in easy-to-use 1g sachets and contains 7 strains of naturally-occurring beneficial organisms (1 billion organisms per sachet). Amongst the multiple strains of friendly bacteria, is the child-specific Bifidobacterium infantis strain. We have also added the prebiotic Fructooligosaccharide (or FOS), to support the growth of friendly bacteria.

This strong, yet gentle probiotic supplement for children offers full spectrum support of the digestive tract. It is designed to support healthy levels of intestinal flora at all times, but can be particularly useful for delicate tummies after a course of antibiotics or following a digestive upset, both of which can disrupt the natural balance of gut flora. It can also offer immunity support when young children return to playgroups or pre-school and germs and viruses can be prevalent.

More about children's health...

What you feed your child can have a major effect on their health (particularly their digestive health and immunity) and long-term dietary habits.

For example, a sweet-tooth is acquired from an early age, by eating sweeter and sweeter foods, but processed sugar is a highly toxic food. However, an existing sweet-tooth can be reversed (usually with a little resistance at first), by gradually reducing the level of sweetness in foods and drinks.

Try to avoid giving sweets, sweetened foods, cola and other sweetened drinks to children on a regular basis. Cola drinks are particularly bad because most contain caffeine, an addictive drug that can de-mineralise the body. Similarly, very few breakfast cereals are sugar-free - most processed cereals contain fast-releasing sugars.
