Florastor Kids review and giveaway

I'm shameless when it comes to blogging. I honestly think I could blog about anything; I don't mind embarrassing myself but I refrain from sharing embarrassing stories involving my husband and kids and friends and family (unless they let me). Take my kids' bowel movements. I could blog about how my kids are "champions" when it comes to holding it in. I could blog about constipation and clogged toilets -- boy, have I got some horror stories! -- but the shame of it might put them into therapy for years.

I'd much rather blog about how easy it is to fix that, uh, tough, problem with probiotics. When one of my kids is feeling, shall we say, clogged up, probiotic yogurts like Activia work like a charm, but I've often wished there was something other than yogurt that would have the same effect.

I recently found out about a probiotic supplement made just for kids -- Florastor Kids. It's a powder (to be precise, it's a probiotic made of live freeze-dried yeast cells that look like a powder) that you can add to your child's applesauce, milk, juice, or just about any food. Since it's natural and doesn't harm your intestines, it can be taken for more than 2 days to promote intestinal health and regular bowel movements. It can be stored without refrigeration so it's great to take with you when you're traveling to another country. And it's safe for children as young as 2 months of age! MomSelect and Florastor were kind enough to provide me with a sample of Florastor Kids for my kids; they sprinkled a bit on their tongue and said they liked the fruity taste. It doesn't spoil the flavor of whatever you add it to; in fact my kids said the taste of their applesauce didn't change at all. And it works -- so I don't have to blog about any embarrassing toilet stories!

I'm fortunate in that my two young daughters (6 & 3) don't get tummy aches.
However that can't be said for my 3yo granddaughter. She has problems every couple of days. My daughter has given her suppositories but that doesn't fix the problem.
This product sounds like the perfect solution for her.

My 6 yr old is the best eater and the one who gets tummy aches. We joke that his poops look like adult poops instead of kids' so- as gross as it sounds- we have him go sit and "try to go".

We've never had any tummy-ache problems, but we do have children in our neighborhood who live by prunes and prune juice ("it's delicious! really!"), who take fiber gummies, and who seem to be much, much happier because of it. One young cancer survivor has constant bowel struggles, and he is constantly drinking and taking fiber supplements... he truly has a will to feel good. I'd love to be able to offer him some of these.
