Probiotics are increasingly being used in pediatrics because of the health benefits attributed to them. Probiotics are defined as “live microorganisms, which when administered in adequate amounts confer a health benefit on the host” [1]. The probiotic concept was first introduced by the Nobel Prize laureate, Ilya Ilyich Mechnikov in 1908 during his study about yogurt-derived health-boosting effects on Bulgarian peasants. Metchnikoff considered the lactobacilli as probiotics (“probios”, conducive to the life of the host as opposed to antibiotics); probiotics could have a positive influence on health and prevent aging [2].
