How it started. My husband asked me why we should supplement our children with probiotics if we were supposed to already have bacteria naturally in our gut.  At the time, I didn’t have an answer.  I just had a “gut” feeling that they were pivotal to my children’s health.  I’m the type that, when faced with…
