“Mommy, did you know that a yogurt a day keeps the yuck yucks away?” Little One is obsessed with yogurt and it surprises me that at just seven years of age, she is obsessed with probiotics. How does she know about them and what they do? I have no idea. I guess she has big ears and hears everything we say.
Little One likes to talk about how fermented foods promote good gut health. Though she doesn’t use those exact terms, she tells us that they “keep the yuck yucks away”. That’s a term coined by a friend of ours and it stuck with Little One since.
Did you know there is a new superhero in town? Bacteria? Yes, good bacteria! Many adults turn to probiotics, specifically to keep their digestive and immune systems healthy, but what do we turn to for our kids? We can turn to probiotics for them too!
I’ve been including Bio-Kidz 100% fermented milk in Little One’s school lunches. Normally a plain or vanilla kind of kid, she surprised me in saying that she prefers the strawberry Bio-Kidz. I thought she would prefer the vanilla Bio-Kidz, but she loves the strawberry one. She says it tastes like a strawberry smoothie.

Probiotics are good bacteria that, when ingested in sufficient quantities, provides beneficial effects to our body, specifically for our digestive and immune systems. When the intestinal flora is unbalanced, the so called “bad” bacteria take over, which can lead to illness, digestive issues, fatigue and dysbiosis.
Probiotics + Kids“While many adults are using probiotics, they may forget that research supports giving probiotics like Bio-Kidz to their children” says Desiree Nielsen, Registered Dietitian and author. “Kids often seem like little germ factories! New Bio-Kidz, with its 12.5 billion live bacteria, helps ensure those ‘germs’ work for them…not against them!”
My husband and I both consume probiotics and prebiotics for gut health. Little One happily takes her probiotics as well. She likes taking Bio-Kidz in her lunch.
Do your kids take probiotics regularly?
