Probiotics for kids offer an all-natural, safe and effective way to support a healthy immune and digestive system, yet getting kids excited about taking supplements is anything but an easy task.

Now that many probiotic-rich products for adults have flooded the market in the form of everything from chocolates, beverages and nut butter spreads, beneficial bacteria is also being offered to children in ways that are friendly, flavorful and fun. Gummy candies, cheese snacks, chocolate bars, popsicles and even flavored drinking straws are a few of the ways that toddlers and young children can now ingest beneficial bacteria.

For young infants who are not quite yet ready to eat solid foods, Gerber recently launched an innovative range of milk-based powder formulas called 'Good Start' that's being touted as the first of its kind to be enriched with probiotics.
