Q.

Tummy bug problem

Good Morning
Is there something that we could perhaps do to give some protection to our littles ones who seem to always be on the receiving end of the latest tummy bug.
My daughter has had 3 " tummy Bugs" in the last 5months.
What causes these bugs - is it in the water, the air.
Thank-you

Gastro usually but not always results from infection due to a contaminated food source.You could try giving your little girl a probiotic such as Reuteri or Probiflora for children.This needs to be given for at least 10 days per month and should be repeated monthly for 3 to 6 months.
