Dear Dee

If your doctor has recommended Reuteri drops, and you have already purchased them, then try to mix the drops into her food to disguise the flavour. As long as the drops are not heated (for example in a bottle/drink in the microwave) it is absolutely fine to mix into her food. Another alternative is the Reuteri chew tabs, which are very tasty (most children will eat them like sweets) and they contain exactly the same probiotic as that in the drops. For children not old enough to chew yet, you can even crush the tablet and let them eat the powder.
