“If it was only as easy as it was when they were babies…”
This is what I was dreaming of when I tried giving probiotics to my kids after they started growing up, suddenly drops just didn’t do the trick anymore.
“If it’s not sweet and gummy – I’m not eating it!” Luckily, many probiotic companies understand that and indeed excel at producing delicious probiotic gummies filled with healthy bacteria our kid’s gut needs. Here are top 10 best probiotics for kids.
Best Kids Probiotic Reviews
The Nordic Naturals Probiotic Gummies are number one on my list for a few reasons, first off they’re fully vegetarian and don’t contain any animal products, second the berry flavor is AMAZING.
(Don’t blame me, but even I took a few of these, they’re so good!)
But the main reason why they’re amazing is because of the 1.5 billion live bacteria included in the probiotic, designed specifically to kill the harmful bacteria in your kid’s gut and replace it with the beneficial bacteria.
Additionally, there’s also a prebiotic included in the Nordic Naturals Probiotic Gummies, which even further contributes to the detoxification of the gut.
Does your kid like vanilla? If yes, then he’ll be in love with the up4 Kids Cubes Probiotic, essentially these are soft melt vanilla-flavored candies that dissolve in your mouth, without the need to chew or swallow.
They’re sugar-free probiotics for kids of three years or older, additionally also very much allergy-friendly as they don’t contain any gluten, soy or other preservatives.
Additionally, there’s also 1 billion CFUs per dosage to ensure a noticeable improvement in the gut health and digestion of your child.
My kids love these!
For those of you who are looking for a real boost and improvement in your child’s immune system, you’ll absolutely love these…
The OLLY Kids Multi + Probiotic Gummies are a 2 in 1 supplement, not only do they contain healthy bacteria (probiotics), but they’re also packed with essential vitamins and minerals that ensure the healthy development of your child.
These include Zinc, as well as Vitamins A, C, D3, E, B6 and B12.
The main reason behind the vast popularity of this supplement is its taste, these gummies are naturally flavored and the berry taste is simply delicious.
They’re super affordable as well and will last you the entire month if you take 2 per day as per the recommended dosage.

If you’re looking for a gluten-free probiotic that tastes absolutely incredible and does wonders in reducing stomach problems such as diarrhea and bloating, you’ll love these.
The Digestive Advantage Probiotic Gummies for Kids (yes, adults can take them too ;)) also include BC30, which provides as much as up to 100x more healthy bacteria, than a probiotic-rich yogurt.
They’re made for children of 3 years or older and are 100% free of artificial flavoring, which is always a plus. Click here to read our full review of the Digestive Advantage probiotics.
5. Culturelle Kids Chewables Daily Probiotic
Culturelle’s Kids Chewable Daily Probiotics have got to be one of the most highly recommended probiotics out there, at least by our local pediatrician.
The reason for that, is because Culturelle uses a probiotics strain called Lactobacillus GG, which has lots of research behind it and is proven to be very effective in supporting kids digestion and immune systems.
Pair that with the strong dosage of 5 billion CFUs per chewable and you’ve got a very effective health bomb, which your kid is actually excited about due to its taste. 🙂
These cherry flavored chewable probiotics include 14 DIFFERENT probiotic strains that promote the growth of healthy bacteria in your child’s gut.
These strains include many popular and highly-researched probiotic strains such as Lactobacillus acidophilus, Lactobacillus gasseri, Lactobacillus paracasei, and others!
This is an all natural, organic probiotic free of gluten, dairy and sugar – so we can guarantee that the bad bacteria (which love sugar), actually get detoxed out of the body.
There are over 5 billion CFUs per dosage and the product is certified organic by USDA, which is always a plus. Here’s our full Garden of Life Probiotic review.
VitaFusion’s Lil Critters is apparently rated as the kids #1 gummy vitamin brand and I can see why.
Lil Critters Kids Probiotic Gummies come in numerous flavors including natural cherry, orange, and grape – and even with those amazing flavors, no artificial flavors, dairy or gluten can be found in this product.
Did I mention that there are over 1 billion CFUs per serving and that alongside probiotics, this supplement also has prebiotics included?
Prebiotics are great, because they increase the positive effects of probiotics even further! Overall, this is a great choice.
It contains 3 billion CFUs (healthy bacteria) with 4 probiotic strains (including Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium), which have been proven to be highly effective.
While this probiotic is highly rated, it misses the entire point for me, because it comes in a form of capsules that need to be taken with water – and we all know no child is going to enjoy taking these…
As an adult, 6 probiotic strains and 3 billion CFUs (guaranteed) per serving probably sound like a dream to you.
And for your kid? Berry-licious flavored chewable tablets that will make you strong like Superman, that should do the trick, no?
On a more serious note, these high quality, delicious chewable tablets are very potent and an ideal multi-strain probiotic for your kids.
They’re made for kids of at least 2 years of age and are 100% dairy and soy-free, which is a great plus. Click here for a full review of Renew Life probiotic brand.
SmartyPants is such a great name, and also such a great probiotic supplement.
This kids probiotic is a delicious strawberry and cream flavored chewable supplement, that includes 4 billion CFUs per single serving, which is quite a lot.
Another bonus is the fact that the supplement includes both probiotics and prebiotics, which stimulate the healthy bacteria in your child’s digestive system and thus improve their health and well being.
SmartyPants Kid Gummies are also 100% dairy free and are a certified vegan vitamin according to AVA (American Vegetarian Association).
An excellent choice if you ask me. 😉
