Anyone who has kids, or any experience with kids, knows that there are a lot of picky eaters out there, and that school cafeterias, fast food, and pre-packaged and processed foods aren’t exactly providing the best nutrition, nor are they a powerhouse of healthy probiotics. In a previous post, I talked about ways the microbiome helps fight off infections and how the microbial community in our gut is shaped by what we eat. Today I’m taking a look at the gut microbiota and how it shapes growth and development in kids. 

Breastfeeding vs. formula for your baby’s microbiome

As we age, the microbes that colonize our guts tend to stay for long periods of time. 1 Science is beginning to understand that these microbes have the potential to really shape our overall health, potentially even for the entirety of our adulthood. The foods we eat, and not the supplements we take, are the primary drivers of our microbiome health. This is true for kids and adults. Several postnatal studies have shown differences in microbiome composition between metropolitan areas of the United States versus rural villages in southern Malawai and Venezuela. 2 Differences have also been observed in babies who are raised on breast milk as compared to those who get formula. Breast-fed infants generally have a more uniform microbiome population when compared to formula-fed 3, and even supplementing with formula can shift the microbiome to a wider spectrum of microbes, which is common for formula-fed infants. 4 Now, for those of you who are thinking, “wait, if formula gives my baby a more diverse microbiome, that’s a good thing, right?” Not at the infant stage. For infants, you actually still want a less diverse microbiome because an infant’s immune system is just at the very start of development. Similar to how you slowly introduce babies to new foods, rather than throw it at them all at once so the body and newly formed immune system of newborns can develop at the correct pace.

Probiotics in infant formula can help

The World Health Organization recommends breastfeeding exclusively for the first 6 months, but it’s not possible for all families. There have been several efforts to make formula that is similar to human milk by adding probiotics and prebiotics in hopes that it will help steer the development of proper immune function. 5678 So far, the studies have shown that the microbiome of babies fed with pro and prebiotic formula look more like that of breastfed babies, though the jury is still out on whether there is real health improvement. 9108 That said, two studies found that supplementation in preterm infants is linked with a reduced incidence of necrotizing enterocolitis and sepsis. 411 It’s the stage when babies are introduced to solid foods that we really see a high impact on the microbial population, with significant increases in Enterococci and Enterobacteria, and the appearance of Bacteroides, Clostridia, and other anaerobic Streptococci. 124 Somewhere between the first and third year of life, the microbiome starts to look a little more like that of an adult. This is where I want to talk a little more about why and how we should be looking toward probiotics and how important the effects of eating habits are on healthy growth and development for children.

The microbiome and children’s growth

It’s been shown over the course of years of microbiome research that a well-rounded microbiome is key in human health — not just for adults, but for kids to achieve healthy growth. 131415 A study done in 2014 comparing bottle-fed to breast-fed macaques showed that the breastfed infants had more memory T helper 17 cells (Th27), an important subset of immune cells that help protect us from pathogens and infection. 16 Alone, this data might not mean much to the average person, but the implication here is that the timing and foods that children are exposed to in their early life can have lasting consequences. The impact of the microbiota in children goes beyond just obesity or malnutrition, but into diseases such as asthma, dermatitis, chronic inflammatory disease, type 1 diabetes, and eczema, all which can last into adulthood. 171819 Knowing how much our health is affected by our microbiomes, this makes me wonder what the American diet (access to highly processed foods and “quick” meals) means for our gut. A study carried out in 2011 by Jeffrey I. Gordon’s lab, looked at bacteria from 326 individuals from the ages of 0-17 and 202 adults 18-70 years of age and found that the composition of the microbiome starts to mature within three years following birth, something that Gordon found to be consistent throughout all three countries. In this same study, Gordon found that the Western lifestyle affects the bacteria makeup of our gut microbiome, from childhood into adulthood.

The microbiome of Americans lacks diversity

On both graphs I’ve included, the blue dots or lines represent the number of different microbes in the American gut. The line graph discusses bacteria in particular, and really highlights how our gut bacteria as adults is less diverse compared to other countries. The dot graph aims to look at other microbes from different groups (Archaea, Fungi, etc.) and shows that the good Fungi and some other eukaryotes that also make up a healthy gut microbiome are much lower as well in America. The culprit of this is likely our diets, as these other countries don’t have as much access to the highly processed foods we eat here in the U.S. The sterile environment that we make these pre-packaged food in, plus that fact that they’re stripped of most nutrients, means that there’s hardly any good nutrition left, and as a result, they can start to feed some bad guys in the gut.   Now, let’s dig in a bit further.

Source: Jeffrey I. Gordon lab study

In the table on the left, Gordon (mentioned earlier) shows rarefaction curves for fecal samples, each with at least 2 million V4-16S rRNA sequences. Each line connects an average number (± SD) of observed 97% ID bacterial species-level operational taxonomic units (OTUs) at each rarefaction depth for adults (n=15 Malawians, 9 Amerindians, 80 USA) and babies (n=1 Malawian, 4 Amerindian, 5 USA). If you’re interested in reading up on what a Random Forests classification is, you can look at Gordon’s original paper here. Meanwhile, in the table below, researchers looked at non-bacterial members identified in fecal microbiota using Shotgun sequences to query the NCBI nr database (Blastn e-value threshold cutoff, 10-5). The proportion of sequences that mapped to non-bacterial sequences was calculated for each age and geographic group. The most abundant fungal sequences belong to the NCBI nr family level taxa Ascomycota and Microsporidia and were found in all three populations. In NCBI nr, “other eukaryota” refers to sequences that do not map to fungi, plants, arthropoda, mammals, and “other metazoa.” In USA microbiomes, “other eukaryota” was most prominently represented by Hexamitidae, Trichomonadidae families, and genus Entamoeba, while in Malawian and Amerindian microbiomes, the most abundant group was “uncultured compost protozoan.” *** p<0.0005, **p<0.005, *p<0.05 (Mann-Whitney test).

So, given that the Western lifestyle affects the microbiome from a young age and results in a less-robust microbiome makeup as an adult, what can we do to combat this? And when should we start? See also: Bifidobacterium vs. Lactobacillus probiotics: what’s the difference?

Probiotics (and prebiotics) are safe for children

For one, it’s pretty clear from several of the studies I linked to above that probiotics and prebiotics are safe for children. Breastfed babies are getting their good bacteria from Mom, but for those of us who can’t breastfeed, several groups are already working to include probiotics in formula. The particular strain that was studied was Lactobacillus rhamnosus GG (ATCC 53103). Another strain that has been tested is B. Infantis, which was demonstrated to reduce in instances of necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC) 20 and another study has tested a combination of probiotics in standard whey-based formula containing a total of 107 colony-forming units (CFU)/g of Bifidobacterium bifidum, Bifidobacterium breve, Bifidobacterium longum, B. longum subspecies infantis. This study supplemented infants with this combination of probiotics from 0 months to 12 months and found that supplementation changed the occurrence of specific bacterias and metabolites. However, a year after stopping probiotic intake, researchers looked at the fecal bacteria of the infants at age 24 months and did not see long-term effects on the microbiome after, or antibiotic uptake, which indicates that complementary probiotics are not just a one-and-done treatment and that the gut microbes need to be properly fed and kept up with in order to see the benefits. 21 Talk to your pediatrician about what the options are if this is a concern for you.

Food Sources of Probiotics for Kids

When introducing solid foods to your child around age 4 to 6 months, instead of the jars of baby food you can buy at the grocery store, consider making them yourself at home. Following your pediatrician’s guidance, choose fresh organic fruits and veggies and invest in a good food processor. While fresh fruits and veggies aren’t a huge source of probiotics, they’re a wonderful source of prebiotic microbes and nutrients that your gut bacteria thrive on, which helps keep your colonies happy. Microbes thrive off of the sugars in complex plant polysaccharides (essential plant carbohydrates). For your bigger kids, look for yogurts that clearly state that they have probiotics included. Encourage fruits and veggies, and even consider letting them spend more time with pets, which can help the immune system mature. Fermented foods like what’s listed below are excellent sources of probiotics, but the flavors might be too strong for your little ones. Still, give these a try:

  • Unpasteurized sauerkraut
  • Kimchi
  • Miso
  • Kefir
  • Yogurt
  • Soft cheeses
  • Dairy products

For picky eaters, sourdough bread is a good source of probiotics, as are homemade smoothies. Double up on the smoothie goodness by making enough for the whole family — break open one probiotic capsule to add to the mix, or swap out milk for kefir. Aside from eating more raw foods, smoothies are one of my favorite ways to include more healthy prebiotics and probiotics into my diet, especially during a course of antibiotics.

Bottom line: Get more probiotics from foods

If you are considering adding probiotics to your family’s diet, look to getting them from your foods. But for those of us who have trouble convincing kids to even look at a mushroom, talk to your pediatrician about slowly introducing a small amount of probiotics into their diet.   As we all know by now, “you are what you eat” has taken on a whole new life — and our guts and our kids’ guts are instrumental in determining both our physical and mental health, so put away the chip bag and feed your bacteria.

Everything You Need to Know

Best strains of probiotics for babies

Researchers of an Australian study found that the best probiotics for infants were ones that included 2-3 strains or species of probiotics (instead of just one). Here are the top three to look for:

1. B. bifidum is one of the first strains to colonize baby’s intestines and adheres to the intestinal wall better than other strains. It continues to be an important bacteria for digestion and nutrient absorption. It may help with infant skin conditions like baby eczema and yeast infections. It may also help with infant digestive issues such as necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC), IBS, constipation, diarrhea, and even lung infections.

2. B. infantis is the strain that is most prevalent and powerful in infants and declines as we age. In fact, a new (and alarming) study shows that this strain may be going extinct in the Western world. This is a huge issue, as it crowds out pathogenic bacteria and helps with overall health and digestion. One review found that B. Infantis can reduce inflammation and support immune function.

3. L. reuteri is a strain that has been found to have many benefits for young children and infants. One study found that children ages 6 months to 3 years who took supplemental L. rheuteri had nearly one third fewer cases of diarrhea and half as many respiratory infections. Another study suggests that L. rheuteri is an excellent treatment for colic. It was also found to reduce the levels of bacteria that cause tooth decay!

How to Give Probiotics to Infants

Always, always, always talk to your pediatrician before giving baby any supplement. Also, always start slow with probiotics and watch for any bowel or behavior changes.

There are a few ways you can provide baby with probiotics:

How to give baby liquid probiotics

The easiest way to give your child baby probiotics is to use an oil dropper, like Mama Natural Baby Probiotic Drops.

  • Following the dosage suggestions on the particular product, add liquid probiotics to a little breast milk or formula.
  • Alternatively, use a syringe to put liquid probiotics directly into baby’s mouth. This way baby is not getting any additional water (which can cause an imbalance in his or her electrolytes).

How to give baby powdered probiotics

  • For powdered probiotics, following the dosage suggestions on your product packaging. Most mamas add baby probiotic powder to breast milk or formula.
  • Alternatively, you can put the powdered probiotics directly on your breasts before feeding. To do so, apply my DIY nipple cream, then sprinkle the probiotic powder directly on top.
  • When baby is eating solids, mix their baby probiotics into baby’s water cup or food.

Other Great Sources of Probiotics for Infants

In addition to probiotic supplements, baby can great probiotics from:


Breastfeeding is the best way to keep baby’s gut lining intact and healthy. Your milk will supply baby with probiotics and immunoglobulin A (IgA), which helps seal the gut lining. For the greatest benefits, consume plenty of probiotic-rich fermented foods, like kefir, raw sauerkraut and pickles, yogurt, miso, etc. This will help enrich your own bacterial balance, which will help your milk and baby.

And if you can’t or don’t want to breastfeed, there are formula options that can still help keep baby’s gut healthy.

Breast milk yogurt

Food is the best way to boost your good bacteria, especially for young children with delicate systems.

Obviously, we can’t give babies true solids until around 6 months old, but we can give them one food at a very young age: Breast milk yogurt.

  • Mix about an ounce of breast milk with 1/8 teaspoon of infant probiotics.
  • Let the mixture sit on the counter overnight.
  • Feed to baby with a spoon.

Of course, always check with your child’s pediatrician before giving to your child.

Fermented foods

When baby is old enough for solids, add naturally-fermented foods to his or her diet. Feeding them early will help baby develop a taste for sour and fermented foods.

  • Start with just the juice of these probiotic powerhouses—sauerkraut or pickle juice, for example. Use a spoon or mix them into puree.
  • As baby gets use to solids, add in small amounts of kefir or yogurt.
  • Gradually continue introducing other fermented foods, eventually serving baby all the fermented foods you love.

Common Questions About Baby Probiotics

Are probiotics safe for infants?

Studies show that probiotics are not only safe, but very effective in reducing daily crying time, spit up, and constipation during the first three months of life.

Probiotics or prebiotics added to infant formula and other foods marketed for use in children do not appear to be harmful to healthy infants and children. – AAP

Still, it is very important to talk to your pediatrician before giving baby anything but breast milk.

Can probiotics cause upset tummies in babies?

Quite the contrary. Clinical trials suggest baby probiotics actually soothe upset tummies. In fact, babies taking probiotics had fewer emergency department visits, needed less medication for stomach problems, had more regular bowel movements, and spit up less.

Can baby probiotics cause gas?

According to researchers, probiotics may actually help reduce gas in babies. Studies suggest babies the bacterial makeup is different in the stomachs of babies with colic, and researchers hypothesize that these differences may cause gas, bloating, and discomfort that leads to colic.

In a review of 12 studies to examine the effects of probiotics, researchers found that infants taking probiotics cried for about an hour less each day—possibly as a result of less gas pain.

Can you give a baby too much probiotics?

Always follow the dosage information on your probiotic supplement, and be sure to get your doctor’s approval.

It may, however, give you peace of mind to know that, according to the AAFP, “there is no evidence that higher dosages are unsafe; however, they may be more expensive and unnecessary.”

Imbalanced gut flora can be inherited, and may cause serious health issues in the future. Adding probiotics for infants to baby’s diet, either through food or supplementation, can help your baby have the best possible start.

Top 10 probiotics for children on Iherb.

com: rating, reviews and prices

Probiotics are biologically active preparations, which include live bacteria of normal intestinal microflora. Probiotics for children prevent the development of dysbacteriosis and have a therapeutic effect in case of manifestations of the disease. Timely appointment of probiotics in children of the first year of life contributes to the formation of protective reactions of the body against aggressive factors of pathogenic microflora. nine0025 The balance of microorganisms in the intestines is the key to health and well-being, but, unfortunately, it can easily be disturbed by the use of drugs (especially antibiotics) and malnutrition. And then probiotics come to the rescue. What drugs really help, what effect they have on the body, find out from the selection with Iherb.
