Why Kids Need Probiotics
This post is sponsored by SmartyPants Vitamins. Opinions are my own.
In recent years, my kids have started taking probiotics. I never really knew how important probiotics were for kids until I saw the positive effects they left on my own littles. It’s amazing how adults can also benefit from probiotics (and we can, my friends). However, I’m here to talk about why kids need these amazing products in their diet. Follow along as I share why kids need probiotics- and not just when they are on antibiotics, which is how I used to view them…now we know it’s just good to take them daily! Taking probiotics daily will help them stay healthy and regular, so they can do the things they love…
Helps the digestive tract
Many studies have shown that kids who take probiotics actually recover from diarrhea a lot easier. Sometimes, it can even help to prevent it. Overall, probiotics just help the digestive system run a whole lot better. Who doesn’t need their digestive system to run better? A digestive system that’s running well will help them to run well too…
Helps the skin
There is enough proof that probiotics can also help children who have skin issues. If you have children that deal with eczema, it’s shown that probiotics can help improve the skin overall.
Probiotics help to take care of your gut
It’s amazing how much your gut gets ignored, but how much care it really does need. Probiotics help to care for your child’s gut. When every other food they are taking doesn’t have their gut bacteria in mind, probiotics do. Think of probiotics as being the “good guy” bacteria in the gut.
Packing the kids’ carry on bags for our trip to Seattle later this week for the #3DSkidforaday event @nintendoamerica is hosting. Just need to find a few puzzle books and they’ll be ready for anything! Notice the #probiotics? We always bring some along. A little boost from @smartyhealth will go a long way in keeping their systems regular while we travel so far in a short time!

Use the best probiotics
I’m sure there are tons of probiotics out there on the shelf, but I have only trusted one brand to help deliver these results to my kids. SmartyPants Kids Probiotic Complete is a quality probiotic that uses premium ingredients. My kids actually didn’t mind taking these and I cannot get them to take any other vitamin. So, you know the taste is good if they are willing to chew these probiotics up on a daily basis. I have trusted SmartyPants vitamins a long while for myself, so the step to trusting them for my kids was an easy one! I need to try the Adult Probiotic Complete when my Women’s run out!
Check this information out:
* Delivers 4 billion CFUs per 2 gummies
* Contains probiotic strains DE111® and IS2*
* Proven 99% survivability in stomach acid
* Promotes good gut bacteria and digestive health*
* Contains clinically-proven Wellmune® prebiotic immune support*
* Vegetarian and Non-GMO
I love that I can read the back of this bottle and know what ingredients are in these probiotics. I also love that they combine multi-strain probiotics and Wellmune® prebiotic immune support, all in one.
If you’re looking for a probiotic, it makes sense to use one in which you can read the ingredients. It’s also important to use one that will give you results. SmartyPants Kids Probiotic Complete have been a great addition to our family’s health.
Get this, I love what they are doing to help bring nutrition to everyone.
We want to bring more health to more people, so for every bottle sold, we make a one-for-one nutrient grant to Vitamin Angels. Each grant provides a child in need with life changing vitamin A supplementation for one year. So far, we’ve helped over 2 million children, thanks to your support. With your help, we hope to make 10 million grants by 2018!

I agree that probiotics are important for kids and for adult too. Kids esp. they can get bacteria and virus too school and can bring at home as well. Its better to have protection always.

My daughter often gets an upset stomach and I never thought to try probiotics. I’m going to have her try Smarty Pants and see if it gets better.
Thanks for sharing!

Rebecca Swenor says
Probiotics are great for regulating the bodies functions. They can help so many skin issues along with stomach issues and are great for all ages. Thanks for sharing this awesome product and I will have to share this with my sister for her son.
Angela Harris says
Thank you for the great tips. Maybe I will look into Probiotics more, now that I have read your post.
Thank you for all these important info about Probiotics. I’ve never thought about getting my son one. Will get him one soon!
Probiotics are so important, especially for little ones because their systems are still developing. This looks like a great product that I need to put on my shopping list.
I will have to research these for my son. They look like they would be a good option!
I knew it helped with the digestive tract, but I didn’t know about skin as well : ) I’ll have to keep this in mind for my little ones… a healthy digestive tract is an important one!
This is such a great post! I am very pro-probitics!! I love that kids are getting started on them so they will have great gut health from a young age!
Stephanie Pass says
My middle son is the one with the sensitive stomach. He definitely could use some probiotics.

I haven’t considered giving my kids probiotics. They do eat yogurt on a regular basis so they do get a little bit of healthy bacteria in their system.
Ann Bacciaglia says
I will have to look for these for my kids. Probiotics are a great way to help boost your gut health.
I should probably get some of these for my girls. Seems like something they would actually take too. I also love this brand, so that’s great!
Tasheena @ SimplyTasheena.com says
Very informative post. I have to look into purchasing these for the kiddos.
The twins love yogurt and that’s the only way they get their dose of probiotics. I need to check this out.
Heather @ Country Life, City Wife says
I love to see probiotics formulated for kids. I especially like they do what they’re supposed to do despite stomach acid – SO many probiotics fail where this is concerned. Will definitely check this out for my stepdaughter.
Jennifer Van Huss says
I think probiotics are good for everyone! Having had gut problems all my life, I swear by them!
I agree kids need Pro-biotics it keeps them healthier and their tummies happy!
I think probiotics are good for everyone. I have a terrible stomach and probiotics have been a lifesaver for me. I’ll have to get these for my kids.
Paula Schuck says
Everyone in our house takes probiotics. They are essential to having a healthy gut.
Stacie @ Divine Lifestyle says
Probiotics are so important to gut health – for us and for our kids. I need to get some of this for the kids.
