Milk allergy moms often ask what probiotic brand is dairy-free and good for their kiddo with food allergies.
Truly, you must start with recommendations of your doctor on this one.
But once you have some medical direction, we are happy to share what’s worked for our milk allergy community.
Do note, ingredients can change anytime so in addition to checking with your doctor, always double-check labels.
Now here are some probiotic recommendations from our milk allergy moms!

PLEASE NOTE: Please consult your own doctor before trying food, supplements, or other products. Also read all labels and call companies for the latest, most accurate product information.
We milk allergy moms often hear that probiotics could help our food allergy conditions.
So naturally, we ask our doctors and want to find which brands are allergy-friendly for us.
My son’s allergist has certainly recommended probiotics so we’ve given them a try.
It appears many of our readers have, too.
I’ll share our recommendations for you below.
And hopefully, you’ll find one that works for you!
FAVORITE DAIRY-FREE PROBIOTIC FOR KIDS
As for my family, we’ve done powdered Garden of Life for Kids. Just sprinkle into applesauce, and the kids don’t even notice.
Of course, check ingredients to make sure this brand is ok for your allergies. We don’t call companies so you may want to do that, as well, if your allergist requires it.
Where do I buy our probiotic?
Since our favorite brand comes refrigerated, I purchase locally at our health food store and get it back into the refrigerator at home.
FAVORITE GUT-HEALING FOODS
In addition to probiotics, we try to consume some naturally gut healing foods at our house.
For instance, we always make our own bone broth and drink fermented coconut water in hopes of achieving better gut health.
Here’s how we’ve made homemade chicken broth for over a decade.
Below is kiddo’s favorite fermented coconut water made by Kevita.
It’s the only flavor he likes even though we’ve tried several.
So if your kids turn their noses up at one flavor, perhaps try another.
Our favorite favor is fermented coconut water instead of fermented tea. Seems better for kids.
Kevita does make kombucha flavors using fermented tea, as well. And this brand is carried at Target.
However, Target doesn’t have my son’s favorite flavor so we have our local health food store stock pomegranate for us.
As always, check labels and call companies if you must. Ingredients can change.
MORE DAIRY-FREE PROBIOTICS FOR KIDS
To help further, we’ve copied and pasted recommendations from our Milk Allergy Mom community on Facebook.
These recommendations include many other brands, and they’re listed below for you.
Big thanks to all the milk allergy moms who helped us update this post.
It will be your duty, however, to check ingredients, talk to your doctor first, and decide which one is right for you.
Hope this helps those of you looking for dairy-free probiotic suggestions for your kiddos with milk allergy.
Here we go! Probiotic suggestions by the Milk Allergy Mom community.
Organic Coconut Keifer. Our allergists asked us to use a brand that is not shelf stable so either a yogurt, kombucha, or Keifer.
We switch up. BioRay Belly Balance Liquid, Garden of Life Dr. Formulated Organic probiotics chewable, Renew Life Ultimate Flora kids chewable probiotic, Kyo Dophilus Kids probiotic vanilla chewable.
I use Klaire Labs TherBiotic infant powder for my 8 year old, only when he uses antibiotics. As well as Kirkman Group S. Boullardi. I open up the capsules and add it to his juice.
All 4 of my kids use the adult capsule of Culturelle. They barely get sick anymore. I went from using every sick day I had 3 years ago to only using 4-5 days a year now.
We use the Young Living KidScents MightyPro. My kids love how it tastes. Can take it alone or we mix it in juice, too.
Floragen when they’re sick, on antibiotics. Otherwise we use Nature’s Plus Animal Parade.
Flora Tummy’s comes in sprinkles and chewable
Douglas Labs Multi Probiotic 40 billion powder
Shaklee! Only probiotic I know of that is triple encapsulated so the live flora make it to the gut where they can be effective.
Culturelle Kids Packets Unflavored
Yum Yum dolphilus and Renew Life Ultimate Flora
Mommy Bliss for my 10 month old princess
We use Plexus xfactor vitamins+probiotics
Nordic Naturals strawberry pixies
