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!
