A proactive approach to gut health may support children’s well-being into the future*

Emerging research shows that the gut microbiota that children have in the first 3 to 5 years of life could have far-reaching effects throughout adulthood, including the regulation of metabolism, immunity, and even mood.1-3*

For babies

All babies experience some form of gastrointestinal distress from time to time, and up to 30% experience infant colic.4 Research suggests that probiotics may have a protective effect in the digestive tract, along with improving microbial colonization in early infancy.4*


For children

Supporting balanced gut microbiota in children starts with a balanced diet. Here are some tips for parents to try:

  • Limit sugary and processed foods, which can have detrimental effects on gut microflora.
  • Serve children yogurt with live active cultures.
  • Try adding some fermented foods to the family diet, including kefir, sauerkraut, kimchi, pickles, and apple cider vinegar.
  • Prebiotics containing inulin fiber support a healthy gut microflora. Well known sources of prebiotics are Jerusalem artichokes, green bananas or plantains, jicama root, and asparagus.
  • Consider a probiotic supplement. Supplementation of the probiotic Bacillus coagulans, in particular, has been shown to maintain host microbiota homeostasis, aid digestion, and promote gut health.6*

Supplementation of the probiotic Bifidobacterium breve, in particular, has been clinically shown to significantly reduce crying time in babies when used daily for 3 months5*

Prebiotics are plant fibers that can stimulate the growth of healthy bacteria in the gut.*
Probiotics are strains of bacteria that are added directly to the population of healthy microbes in the gut.
