Like many parents I have a resolution to make the new year healthier for the whole family. Whether it's planning better meals, increasing the amount of quality time together, or incorporating more regular exercise, I've been considering different ideas. A couple months ago my daughter's stomach was bothering her. Even though her complaint only lasted for the day, my sister-in-law had suggested I might want to try a probiotic to help her overall digestive system, so when I was offered a chance to review Align Kids Probiotic Gummies I was immediately intrigued as it would be another example of how I could ensure 2020 was off to a great start since it's the #1 doctor recommended probiotics brand.‡

Living close to a Walmart makes shopping for groceries and household needs very simple, and Align Kids is no exception. I did search on the Walmart app before I went to the store to check whether Align Kids was in stock locally, which also told me exactly in what aisle I could find it. My normal inclination would be to look in the area featuring vitamins and medicines specifically for children, but I learned instead that Align Kids is located in the same probiotic health section with other Align products meant for adults (underlying the point that probiotics are good bacteria that can provide a health benefit for various ages). I was therefore able to go directly to the aisle I needed, quickly find Align Kids, checkout, and bring home the gummies for my daughter to try. Given the Midwest's winter weather, ordering from for delivery by meeting delivery requirements would have been another option if preferred or you can elect to simply order Align Kids with your groceries online and choose store pickup, which is free and easy with a $30 minimum order and reserved pickup time.

Align Kids Probiotic Gummies are intended for kids who are at least 4 years old and above (perfect for my elementary-aged offspring) and supports a child's digestive health actually in two ways. First, it provides the prebiotic, Inulin, to help nourish existing good bacteria. Second, the probiotic, Bacillus Coagulans, found in Align Kids, adds more good bacteria to their digestive system to support a healthy tummy.* As a mom I certainly always hope that my child is feeling her best, so I'm glad that Align Kids is able to be a dietary supplement with probiotic benefits but WITHOUT a lot of added sugar or artificial colors. In fact, Align Kids Probiotic Gummies are naturally flavored, contain less than 1g of beet sugar per gummy, and are gelatin free.

However, knowing that something is good for you doesn't guarantee that you're going to like it, just as I know that even though exercise has merit I still don't relish the thought of it. So, what would my daughter think of taking an Align Kids Probiotic Gummy each day given its probiotic and prebiotic advantages? Turns out she loves them! She thinks the fruit flavors are delicious and the gummies themselves are easy to chew. They come in cherry, grape, and orange with corresponding cute shapes and details. My daughter enjoys the great taste of all three, but cherry remains her favorite. She looks forward to starting the morning with one of these good-for-you supplements that has become part of her breakfast routine, which means that I can finally feel that at least one of my resolutions for the new year -- to help my family move toward an overall healthier lifestyle -- is definitely headed in the right direction!
