MORTON GROVE, Ill., March 20 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Lifeway Foods, Inc. (Nasdaq: LWAY), makers of the nutritious, probiotic dairy beverage called Kefir, announced today, ProBugs(TM), the organic Kefir designed for kids, has secured new and expanded distribution for all three SKU's, in several chains across the country.

Julie Smolyansky, Lifeway's CEO, commented, "We are very excited that ProBugs(TM) continues to grow tremendously, and as product line introduced only a year and a half ago, we feel it is already a success.

Lifeway also produces a line of products marketed in US Hispanic communities, called La Fruta, Drinkable Yogurt (yogurt drinks distinct from kefir). In addition to its line of Kefir products, the company produces a variety of cheese products and recently introduced a line of organic pudding called It's Pudding!.
