40% of children in the U.S. have at least one chronic health condition

As a parent, you can’t shake the feeling that something deeper is causing your child’s health issues. But the existing reactive, one-size-fits-all approach to pediatric care often falls short of getting to the root cause.

The right interventions can help you course correct

Your child's gut microbes play an essential role in their immune development and overall health. As the gut matures, it gets harder to overcome imbalances, but not impossible. Testing their gut early can help you get the the root cause of symptoms and protect against infection and chronic illness later in life.

So much more detailed and helpful than what my paediatricians, dietitians, speeches, OTs, osteos etc have been able to provide. This has been extremely clear and helpful information as to why my Bub has been so unsettled.

My baby tried so many doctor recommended probiotics that never helped too much. Finally tried one with an entirely different strain thanks to Tiny Health and saw an immediate change!

Hear from other people raving about Tiny Health

The first gut test designed with families in mind

Tiny Health was founded by Cheryl, a Mom looking to heal her baby’s microbiome after a C-Section birth. Unable to find clear, reliable answers anywhere she quickly realized that the only gut microbiome tests on the market were designed for grown-ups, not babies, leading to inaccurate results. She set out to create the first ever test to measure the microbiome health of babies during the critical first 1,000 days of life

The microbes in your child’s gut are crucial for their immune system and overall health. Testing early gives you the power to address imbalances and get ahead of chronic conditions.

Frequently asked questions

Our targeted program is specifically designed for parents working through chronic conditions, providing them with personalized support to help their child achieve optimal gut health. The Child's gut program includes two gut tests and four consultations with a microbiome specialist, providing you with a high level of personalized support throughout your journey. Additional kits can be purchased at a discounted rate of $169/kit.

The Tiny+ Membership, on the other hand, is ideal for parents whose children are not suffering from any chronic conditions and who want to take a proactive approach to optimize their child's gut health, setting the foundation for lifelong health. The membership includes two gut microbiome tests and one consult call per year. Additional kits can be purchased at a discounted rate of $169/kit.

Our six-month targeted program is designed to help you address the root cause of your gut imbalances, offering a comprehensive approach to gut health. Here's how it compares to single-kit offerings:

  • Child's Gut Program: Includes two gut tests and four consult calls with a microbiome specialist, providing you with personalized support throughout your journey. Additional kits can be purchased at a discounted rate of $169/kit.
  • Child Gut Baseline Assessment: Includes one gut microbiome test and one consult call with a microbiome specialist. The Gut Baseline Assessment is a great starting point if you're unsure if a program or membership is right for you. Your microbiome specialist can recommend the best next steps during your consultation call.
  • Child Gut Health Test: A standalone gut test without a consult call. This option is suitable if you already have a deep understanding of gut health. However, we find that parents who consult with our microbiome specialists derive the most value from their Tiny Health test.

As part of the Child's Gut Program, you have access to additional kits for any member of your family at the discounted rate of $169/kit.

The six-month duration of the program is based on the time it typically takes to work through a chronic condition effectively. Here's a breakdown of what to expect during the six months:

  • Month 1: You’ll have an introductory consultation with your microbiome specialist and take the first gut test. It takes about 3-4 weeks to receive the results of your microbiome test.
  • Month 2-3: You’ll receive the results of your first test and meet with your microbiome specialist to establish your personalized Action Plan. You’ll work on implementing the recommended Action Plan for the next 4-6 weeks.
  • Month 4: You’ll check in with your microbiome specialist to see how the actions implemented are progressing and take the second gut microbiome test.
  • Month 5-6: You’ll receive the results of the second gut test and meet with your specialist to see how the changes you’ve implemented have shifted the gut microbiome. Your specialist will fine tune your personalized Action Plan.

After the initial six months, your microbiome specialist will help you determine the best next steps. The Program auto-renews for an additional six months. Your specialist may recommend additional support with a continuation of the program. Alternatively, they may recommend that you graduate and join the Tiny+ Membership after the initial six month period. The Membership offers ongoing support and resources to help maintain your child's gut health in the long term.

A microbiome test can provide useful insights on how the gut microbiome may be contributing to the symptoms you’re experiencing.  Chances are, if your child is experiencing symptoms, there may be an underlying gut imbalance that is contributing to those symptoms, and understanding the gut can help to see if any imbalances are present and how they may be triggering a condition.

In short, it’s never too late to test. The sooner you have a baseline sample, the better.

Keep in mind that the gut is still developing until the age of 3 - 5 years old. Up until this point, you have an opportunity to check in on your little one’s gut health and make changes, if needed.

For older children, testing can reveal a lot about their gut health. Including levels of hidden gut inflammation, levels of bacteria that make anti-inflammatory short-chain fatty acids, microbiome diversity, and biomarkers for immune health and fiber digestion.

Even if your child’s gut has reached adult-maturity, there’s still an opportunity to influence their dietary, supplement needs, and lifestyle choices.

Please visit our Help Center for any question we may not have answered here.

Many of our members use their FSA/HSA to pay for clinical fees, and tests. However, we recommend checking with your FSA/HSA company/carrier for more information on what details are required.

In case there is any additional documentation you need, feel free to reach out to us at customer support, we’re more than happy to help you with the necessary paperwork.

If your child will be under 3 for the majority of the program you should select the Baby Gut program. If your child will be over 3 for the majority of the program we recommend the Child Gut Program. However, your microbiome specialist will personalize either program to meet the specific needs of your child, so you really can choose either program and have the same personalized experience!

The program includes:

  • 2 Tiny Health Gut Microbiome Tests
  • 4 Consult calls with a microbiome specialist
  • Access to discounted additional microbiome tests at ($169/kit) during the duration of your program
