Choosing the best vitamins and supplements for your children is extremely important.
Ideally, your children would be getting all the nutrition they need from their diet.
With picky eaters and busy schedules, the foods your kids eat may not be providing enough of the essential vitamins and minerals to keep their bodies healthy and their immune systems strong. Children’s vitamins can make a big difference in supporting their overall health and well-being.
There are a wide variety of supplements available for your child’s individual needs.
Proper nutrition is especially important during the formative years, when most growth and development takes place.
Consider a children’s multivitamin featuring a well-rounded formula complete with essential vitamins and minerals.
There are many great tasting formulas including chewables,
gummies and liquids.
For specific needs, individual vitamins and minerals such as vitamin C and calcium are available in many forms to support strong bones and teeth, as well as improved immune function.
With a multivitamin as your foundation, you can now turn your attention to their more specific nutritional needs.
First up are essential fatty acids.
Omega-3 supplements aren’t just for adults!
In fact, these essential fatty acids contain specific nutrients known as DHA and EPA which support heart and brain health.
Don’t worry, your kids won’t have to suffer through nasty cod liver oil.
Today’s omega supplements taste great and are easy to take.
They vary in form from liquids to powders to chewables.
Next, we have probiotic supplements.
A good probiotic contains millions of tiny bacteria that help your natural digestive system perform efficiently when breaking down foods and making the nutrients available for use by the rest of your body.
While they can be found in foods like yogurt and fortified milk, probiotic supplements offer the same digestive support without the added sugar!
They help make the most out of any diet.
Probiotics may improve immune function too, which can become taxed when in a school environment.
