OptiBac 'For babies & children'
From birth onwards, 'For babies & children' (formerly known as 'For your child's health') from OptiBac can be given as a natural supplement.
OptiBac 'For babies & children' is completely free from sugars, artificial flavours & colourings which can be found in other children's supplements and foods containing live cultures.
At OptiBac we specialise entirely in friendly bacteria, and only use strains of the highest quality, with extensive research behind them.
'For babies & children' can easily be mixed with your child's favourite foods or drinks. This OptiBac supplement can be taken with formula milk when it is at room temperature, but not when warmed (as heat reduces the viability of natural bacteria.) For breastfed babies, powder can be applied to nipple or clean finger for baby to suckle.
