Hi, Was wondering if anyone can recommend a suitable probiotic for my 7yr old DS. He has ADHD, if that bears any relevance on the type. I live in Ireland. Thank you. smile

I buy Udo's Choice as they're meant to be the best- I get them from iHerb, who deliver internationally.

I give Biokult to my 4 year old (I take them too). You can open the sachets and mix in a drink/food. They don't need refrigerating.

Ive tried a few.

Solgar, Solaray, Udo's Choice, Bioglan, Biokult, Biocare, Animal Parade, KIDZProbio

My favourite when they're little is the Solgar powder after a recall its hard to get

Solaray didn't like taste

Udos choice filled with crappy bulking agent

Bioglan - yummy chocolate ball. Fridge free. But has sugar.

Biokult- sachets a faff

Animal Parade- tasted chalky

Biocare- very annoying packaging (bottle) leading to spilt powder and it's the most exp powder

KIDZProbio- tasty

Natures Way- DS seemed happy

OHSO- for adults but mini choc bar with tiny squares making easy to split. Can get with sugar or without.

So I recommend for him KIDZProbio or Bioglan if he likes choc and you're not worried about a little sugar.

I've bought these from Holland and Barret, Amazon or Ocado

You could do half a Biokult adult one as suggested by AButterfly. Little fiddly if you want to close back up to save the other half but it's doable.
