There are 5 kids in my son’s classroom out sick today and my son just game home with a stomach ache and sore throat. It seems like everyone is already getting sick and we just started the school year! It’s no wonder our kids get sick as soon as school starts. There are over 2,300 germs on water fountains and 14,000 microorganisms on the gym class basketball! Yikes!
It’s amazing that our kids aren’t sick more often than they are! The best defense for them is a strong immune system. My family takes daily probiotics mostly during cold and flu season, but I know we should year-round for a stronger immune system.

Support Your Child’s Immune System with Culturelle Kids Probiotics
I learned years ago just how important a healthy digestive tract is, did you know that 70% of the immune system is located there. If your child’s digestive system is health and balanced, it leads to stronger immunity and health.
The simplest way to explain how Culturelle works is that our bodies have a balance of microflora – the good and bad bacteria in our digestive system. This microflora can easily get imbalanced through things like changes in our diet, sickness, and even some medications. When this balance is disrupted, kids (and adults) can experience bloating, poor digestion, irregularity, diarrhea. Culturelle Probiotics help keep this delicate balance of microflora where it needs to be.
We started using Cuturelle brand probiotics two years ago to calm my son’s stomach aches and for a stronger immune system. When he uses it, his tummy problems are gone – unless it is a sickness. Cuturelle is the only brand that contains 100% Lactobacillus GG, the most clinically studied strain available.
Culturelle is available in both packets and chewables, my kids prefer the chewables. I normally give it to them in the morning with their breakfast and multivitamin so that I never forget. I just wasn’t in the mindset this early in the season to start back with it, I could kick myself since my son is now sick. It may have helped his immune system fight off whatever he has.
I don’t think he has the widespread nasty enterovirus D68 virus that is spreading across the country but any virus is one too many for my kids, especially since my son is recently diagnosed Type 1 Diabetic. I’m nervous about any sickness that comes his way now as it can affect his entire health – with blood sugar lows or highs. It stinks. There is no cure for Type 1 Diabetes, so until there is, we have to be extra diligent in his protecting his health and keeping his immune system strong.
Culturelle is a smart choice to support their immune systems this school year! Culturelle offers products for parents too.
