Going back to school is an exciting time for kids and parents alike. That is, until your child comes home complaining of a tummy ache—or worse!
Digestive issues are a common complaint in school-age kids, which is why it’s important to take a proactive approach to gut health. Look no further than probiotics—they provide a source of the beneficial bacteria that’s essential to supporting optimal digestion and nutrient absorption. Plus, probiotics can play a profound role in immune system health, crucial during those first few weeks back and school and the cold and flu season that follows. Research also suggests that probiotics may help reduce the incidence of childhood allergies, asthma, certain infections and the common cold.
It’s also important to note that, just like a lot of other supplements, the right probiotic for you is not necessary the right one for your child. The specific types (or “strains”) of healthy bacteria that line the digestive tract can change as we get older. To ensure your child is getting the right dose of probiotics each day, look for a supplement that’s kid-friendly. Sisu Probiotic Kid Stiks deliver 5 billion scientifically-developed, multi-strain cultures, specially selected to promote optimal gut health in children. Plus, there are added fructooligosaccharides (FOS) to promote and restore healthy gut flora.
Because there’s no flavour or odour, Probiotic Kid Stiks can be blended into your child’s favourite foods and beverages. Simply stir the powder into water, juice or milk, or sprinkle over foods like cereal, oatmeal or pasta. They’re convenient and portable, making them perfect with breakfast, lunch or as a snack during after-school activities.
