  • Are these things any good?

    I bought them today for my 7 year old son since he cant drop supplement form. They look like a great way to get a healthy amount of gut bacteria.

      From what I can gather you don't need to keep taking the stuff long term once your gut bacteria is sorted. I suspect you would get way more benefit from eating good quality greek yogurt.

        Definately agree. This is for your son, right? Just buy a very good probiotic, Mark's is excellent.

          It's ok for kids but I don't like them myself. Too much added sugar.

            why is that OK for kids?

            I agree with the good quality pro-biotic instead.

              Children need more carbs and less protein than adults.

              So if your baseline of a normal diet is yourself, then your kids can and should have have some higher sugar foods (like 'yoghurt' from the supermarket and more fruit), and less meat.

                I just load some greek yogurt over berries in a thermo-insulated container, and my kiddo also loves pickles and pickled cabbage.... I am going give a shot to pickled tomatoes one of these weekends. When I was a kid that was my fav. winter food.

                  Why would a growing child need less protein?

                    Cause kids generally aren't watching their carbs, and growing children need them. Plus, it's hard enough to force yogurt down a kids throat if he doesn't want any.

                      I guess I could stick with greek yogurt.

                        There's not that much protein in breast milk?
