Are your children fit for school?
The new school year is about to start and with it comes the usual round of coughs, colds and other unwanted bugs.
We all like to be prepared for the school year and spend time making sure our children have the right uniform, shoes, stationery, sports kit and numerous other items.
Here at ProVen Probiotics, we would like to help you to prepare for some of the unwanted effects of the school environment, supporting your child’s immunity and fighting off unwelcome bugs.
Fit for School has been specifically developed for children and contains 12.5 billion Lab4 friendly bacteria along with vitamin C to help support your child’s immunity.
Kids average 8 coughs and colds each year!
Coughs and colds are the most common illnesses in the UK, with adults suffering an average of 2-3 and children up to eight episodes a year. They are most common in the autumn and winter, peaking between November and March and present an issue for both children and parents in terms of time off school and childcare problems.
There is no cure for the common cold, the symptoms of which are usually caused by viral infections, meaning that antibiotics are not effective in treating them. The most effective way of helping to prevent coughs and colds is to support the immune system and friendly bacteria are increasingly being shown to help with this.
12.5 billlion live bacteria per stick pack
ProVen Probiotics Fit for School stick packs have been created specifically for children aged 12 months to 16 years to help maintain immune function and general wellbeing.
Developed as a powder to be suitable for children from one year of age, they can be added to cold foods or drinks and are provided in convenient individual sticks each containing one day's serving. The combination of 12.5 billion of the unique Lab4 acidophilus and bifidus friendly bacteria with vitamins C and D provides support for a child's general health and more specifically helps maintain immune function.

The study also found that the duration of coughs and colds was halved in the children taking Fit for School and visits to the doctor and consequently prescription for antibiotics was reduced by 43%.
