I can’t believe summer already came and went, and the kids are back at school! It seems like the seasons fly by… well, except for winter, which can’t get over fast enough here in New England.
Kids back in school means going clothes and school supply shopping, but don’t forget to use this time to also stock your medicine cabinet with first aid supplies, cough and cold medicines as well as a probiotic for yourself and your kids!
When it comes to choosing a probiotic for my family, I have come to trust Culturelle®, which is available in both adult and child forms. Culturelle® Kids, which is available in both chewable and dissolvable packets, is the #1 Pediatrician recommended probiotic brand and carries the Good Housekeeping seal.
Once your child is three or older, it is recommended that you give them Culturelle® Kids Chewable Probiotic.
Both of my girls experience occasional tummy troubles, including diarrhea and digestive upsets. I can usually handle colds with the girls, but when they come to me and tell me their tummy is not feeling right, I panic. I hate to see them not feeling well and not being able to comfort them and take away the digestive pain.
But thanks to Culturelle® and their Culturelle® Kids Probiotic Packets, which are flavorless (making them perfect to add to any cool liquid or food) and their lack of gluten, dairy, lactose, milk, added colors, preservatives, yeast or soy, I am able to get my girls’ digestive and immune systems back on track*.
How you ask? Lactobacillus GG†† – the ingredient in Culturelle® Kids Probiotic Packets – is clinically proven†† to help reduce occasional tummy troubles (like diarrhea and occasional digestive upset) by helping to restore the balance of “good” and not-so-good bacteria in children’s digestive systems.*  Probiotics support the body’s natural defenses, starting in the digestive tract*.
Taken regularly, Culturelle® Kids Probiotic Packets actually help your child’s digestive and immune systems work better.*
I first noticed my girls starting to experience tummy troubles back when we introduced solid foods into their diet. As they began to experiment with new flavors and foods, they would get the occasional digestive upset. Then we tried Culturelle® Kids Probiotics, which can be given to children ages 1 and up. Once your child is three or older, it is recommended that you give themCulturelle® Kids Chewable Probiotic.
Did you know? 70 percent of your immune system lives in your digestive tract, so a healthy and balanced digestive system plays a vital role in strengthening your overall health and well being. Culturelle® Kids Probiotic is the only probiotic with 100% Lactobacillus GG, the most clinically studied strain††.
Culturelle® Kids Probiotic is one product I make sure to have on hand at all times – on the go, at home, as well as some at the grandparents as you never know when tummy troubles will occur. When it comes to stocking up on Culturelle® Kids Probiotic, I make a point to have both the packets and chewables on hand. I find that the packets are easier to throw in my purse and have on hand if the girls get a digestive upset while out and about. I simply have to dissolve a packet in water or their juice and have them drink it, and Culturelle® Kids Probiotic starts working to support a child’s health by fostering the proper balance of good bacteria in the gastrointestinal tract.*
Classrooms and filled with opportunities to learn but also get sick, so I have made sure to add Culturelle® to our must-haves school supply list. Will you be doing the same?
This pediatrician-recommended probiotic brand is a must-have for families with young children who experience occasional tummy troubles/digestive upset, as it helps naturally restore the balance of “good” bacteria in your gut*. My girls never know I am giving them a probiotic, and I feel good helping them out with any potential upset tummies.
When I do give them a Culturelle® chewable, they can’t stop talking about how great this berry chewable tastes. Once you try Culturelle® Kids, you will see why I and so many other parents and caregivers make a point to stock our medicine cabinets with this probiotic brand, and continue to recommend it to family and friends.

  1. I had not heard of these before I read your post. I really like that they come in packets.
