    Are these things any good?

    Primal Fuel

    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.

    Caution! My replies may contain traces of nuts!. My posts are just my opinion based on my experience with the primal way of life, there is no assurance it will work with others in the same way.

    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.
    Disclaimer: I eat 'meat and vegetables' ala Primal, although I don't agree with the carb curve. I like Perfect Health Diet and WAPF Lactofermentation a lot.

    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.
