Why We Use Dark Chocolate in Our Tummy Supplement (Besides the Obvious Reason: That It’s Delicious!)

Why We Use Dark Chocolate in Our Tummy Supplement (Besides the Obvious Reason: That It’s Delicious!)

In case you missed the greatest news of the year (okay, maybe we’re a little biased), we are bringing back our kids’ probiotic supplement – now called Tummy – next month! 🎉👏🥳  Good Day Chocolate Tummy is a probiotic that helps promote healthy digestion and a happy belly for kiddos 4 and up. 


What are probiotics?

Probiotics are healthy, live bacteria that line your digestive tract. These “good” bacteria help create an ideal environment in the gut. Not only do probiotics help with digestive issues, but there is also a lot of research being done on how probiotics can benefit overall well-being and brain function (check out our recent post about that gut-brain connection and how probiotics fit into the mix).

Kids Probiotic

If you’re a parent, you may have heard of the importance of getting your kiddo to take a probiotic for a variety of reasons: better nutrient absorption, healing digestive concerns, supporting brain health, and even warding off allergies and infections.

Some foods contain probiotics naturally, but getting your kiddos to eat them can be a challenge unto itself. If you ask us, cleaning wet, rejected sauerkraut from our floors is NOT our idea of a good time!

Enter Good Day Chocolate Tummy. We use premium Fair Trade Dark Chocolate in each piece, which also contains 1 billion CFUs (colony forming units) of Lactospore® - a well-researched, shelf-stable probiotic strain that’s been proven to aid with digestion and keep your gut happy.


And chocolate > sauerkraut. 

We formulated Tummy with dark chocolate specifically because milk chocolate contains dairy, which can cause stomach upset – especially in little ones who are lactose intolerant.

Dark chocolate is also well-known for its antioxidant properties, and it is full of important minerals, including iron, magnesium, zinc, copper and phosphorus. Read more about the benefits of dark chocolate.
