Directions

Preparation
Best taken with a meal, preferably with breakfast.
Simply mix with your child’s favourite cool, non-acidic foods or drinks – try sprinkling the powder over cereal, mixing it with yogurt, or dissolve it in a glass of water or cold milk.
Can be taken with formula milk – simply add to the bottle once it has cooled down to room temperature (as heat reduces the viability of natural bacteria).
For breastfed babies, powder can be applied to nipple or clean finger for baby to suckle.

Recommended amount
Infants from birth to 3 years: 1 sachet per day
Kids 4 – 12 years: 1 to 2 sachets per day as desired
Pregnant and breastfeeding mothers: 1 sachet per day
