Your kids’ digestive health is an essential part of their development, and probiotic powder is an ideal way to support their growth. Probiotic powders are an optimal delivery system because they can be added to food or drinks, making it the best solution for your picky eaters or for parents always on-the-go.
Here's why probiotic powders are a great delivery system to support your kids' growth development.
Probiotic Support for Kids
First, let’s cover the probiotic basics. Probiotics are healthy bacteria found in the gut. These healthy bacteria are important because research has shown significant connections between a gut health, mood, brain development. Therefore, supporting your kids’ digestion with probiotics is one of the best ways to support healthy growth!
There are two ways to support the gut with probiotics: with naturally occurring probiotic foods and with a probiotic supplement. When the probiotics are from a reliable source, either delivery system will support your child's gut health. However, many parents find that probiotic supplements are easier to give on a daily basis rather than probiotic foods because their kids do not like yogurt, kefir or other probiotic-rich foods.
The best probiotic strains for kids include Bacillus coagulans, Bifidobacterium, and Lactobacillus. If taken regularly, these strains work with the healthy bacteria already present in your children’s body to support healthy digestion.
Using Probiotic Powder with Your Kids
Probiotic powders offer the same support as a capsule or chewable probiotics, but you can easily add to your kids’ meals. These individual packs are ideal for travel, whether it’s to a play date across town or visiting family across the country.
We recommend adding the powder to your kids’ glass of milk with breakfast or applesauce at dinner. Probiotic stick packs are tasteless and soluble, making them great for even the pickiest eaters. Just stir one pack into your kids’ meal each day.
We’ve formulated our probiotic powder with the Sears Family of pediatricians to contain 10 billion live cultures from the top strains (Bacillus coagulans, Bifidobacterium, and Lactobacillus). When your kids’ digestion is in check, their immune health and brain development will thrive as well. Experience the support of Tummy Smart™ Probiotic Stick Packs!
