Vitamins and minerals are important elements of the total nutritional requirements of your child. Because the human body itself is unable to produce adequate amounts of many vitamins, they must be obtained from the diet.
Maintaining a healthy diet is incredibly important and sometimes difficult to accomplish during childhood. As a mother of two young kids I can’t emphasize enough how important a healthy diet is for growing children.
A high quality and varied diet should absolutely be the top priority but there are some supplements that can help fill in any holes in a child’s diet. Just as during pregnancy or nursing, this is a time when one should be very careful about the supplements given and choose only high-quality supplements from verifiable sources.
Udo’s Choice Super Children’s Probiotic,
If they’ve ever been on antibiotics, children can greatly benefit from quality probiotics. Their gut flora is still developing, and supporting gut health during childhood will have much more of an effect than attempting to supplement later in life.
Udo’s Choice Super Children’s Probiotic designed for children age 4 and up, contains 7 strains of medicinal probiotic bacteria that correspond with your child’s natural healthy microflora.
Natural Factors Vitamin Ddrops,
Vitamin D plays a dual role as both a vitamin and a hormone that stimulates the body to absorb calcium. Vitamin D, calcium, and phosphorus are needed to keep bones strong. This is especially important for children’s growing bones. Without vitamin D, even a diet adequate in calcium will not help as the body needs vitamin D to absorb calcium.
Nordic Naturals Children’s DHA liquid,
Made entirely from Arctic cod liver oil, these products are rich in the omega-3 DHA. DHA is essential for the proper development of the brain, eyes, and nervous and immune systems. Children’s DHA also contains healthy levels of 100% natural vitamins A and D.
Mega Food Kid’s one daily Multivitamin,
This is a comprehensive, whole-food multivitamin formulated for children ages 5 and older. Each mini tablet is easy to swallow for children and does not contain any sweeteners, flavorings, or food colorings.
This is a convenient one daily serving to provide 24 Essential Nutrients to support healthy growth and development.
Animal Parade Sugar Free Vitamin C Children’s Chewable – Orange Juice Flavor,
This is sweetened with tooth-friendly xylitol! A naturally occurring compound found in berries, vegetables and mushrooms. Xylitol has been shown to have decay-preventative properties according to the California Dental Association.
Further research has shown ability for xylitol to reduce oral bacteria. Plus, xylitol contains 40% less calories than sugar and is absorbed more slowly, helping to support stable blood sugar. Animal Parade Sugar Free Vitamin C as part of your children’s daily health routine will help to boost their immunity.
