Can you give a child too many live cultures?
Live cultures are very safe for children and it’s not thought to be possible to ‘overdose’ on them, so don’t worry about giving your child too many. However, there’s no reason to use more than they need and in general, it is best to give them the recommended dosage. OptiBac ‘For babies & children’ provides the recommended daily dose of 3-6 billion of friendly bacteria (depending on age) in just 1-2 sachets.
Is OptiBac ‘For babies & children’ a vegetarian supplement?
Yes, OptiBac ‘For babies & children’ is vegetarian. It does not contain any dairy as an ingredient but does contain traces of lactose (see information on lactose intolerance in the Ingredients section). It is also gluten-free, making it suitable for those with coeliac disease.
