About Florastor Kids:
Florastor Kids is a clinically-tested, natural, yeast-based probiotic that aids in the growth of good microbiota in the intestines, while destroying and removing pathogenic (bad or disease-causing) microbiota to help maintain or restore optimal intestinal health.
Unique because it can be safely given to babies and children from the age of two months, Florastor Kids is a great-tasting powder that can be dissolved in beverages, including infant formula, or soft foods, such as applesauce.
Florastor Kids can be used to help prevent and manage:
o Antibiotic-associated diarrhea (AAD)
o Acute gastroenteritis
o Traveler’s diarrhea
o Clostridium difficile (C. diff, which is a severe, possibly fatal infection of the colon that can occur after healthy microbiota are wiped out by the use of strong antibiotics, allowing a pathogenic bacteria to thrive; currently being seen more often, as C. diff is on the rise)
Florastor Kidsis the Number-One Probiotic Worldwide:
Florastor probiotic supplements have been clinically tested and sold internationally for more than 50 years. The active ingredient in Florastor Kids is mentioned by the World Health Organization for the management of C. diff-associated diarrhea (Saccharomyces boulardii: a valuable adjunct in recurrent Clostridium difficile disease (1995) WHO Drug Information; 9; (1); 15-16). Florastor Kids is now available at most national chain pharmacies throughout the U.S. at numerous retail outlets.
Studies that support Florastor Kids’ efficacy and safety can be viewed at www.sboulardii.com.
Florastor Kids is available in a box of 10 powder packets for a suggested price of $12.95 and in a box of 20 powder packets for a suggested price of $21.95.

We didn't necessarily "need" this product due to no diarrhea, but my daughter seems to get sick quite often, and a majority of your immune system is located in your stomach. So, I've been having her take it for about the last week or so. She loves the flavor of it! We mix it in with some water, or some applesauce, and it's good to go.
I'm glad we have this product on hand!
