Does 23andMe Have Genetic Testing for Children?
Young children do not produce as much saliva as adults and if they are too young they cannot spit. As such it is very difficult for them to use the same test as used by adults. 23andMe does have test kits for young children but these are not available online, instead you can contact them directly and request a special test kit for younger children.
