A tastless probiotic powder, suitable for babies, toddlers and children. 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.
- The powder can be easily dissolved in water, milk, juice or can be added to food
- Can be taken alongside antibiotics, when travelling and as part of a healthy diet
- No need to refrigerate
A gentle probiotic supplement which offers full spectrum support of the digestive tract. It is formulated 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.

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 and have added sugar!
An ideal snack for children, packed with vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and dietary fibre, is fruit (especially berries), so try to make sure that you always have plenty of fruit on offer so that children can nibble as and when they are peckish. Another good habit to develop early on is to regularly eat raw vegetables and salad foods, preferably at each meal. The younger this starts, the easier it will be to integrate into the long-term diet. Many vegetables (particularly organic produce) are naturally sweet and will therefore appeal more to a child's palate. For example, carrots and peas.
It is also worth remembering that children's systems are very sensitive and react more readily to substances they are exposed to. Allergies start young and so, by paying close attention, you can find out what does and does not suit your child. For instance, many children have adverse reactions to food additives, sugar, dairy products, wheat and other gluten grains. Symptoms may include rashes, eczema, vomiting, diarrhoea, stomach ache, wind, coughing, frequent sore throats, asthma and respiratory infections.
Optimum nutrition with 'real food' will support a child's digestion, immune system and general health and well-being.
