Wellkid® Baby & Infant Liquid
Carefully balanced supplement for babies & infants
From the makers of Pregnacare®, Wellkid® Baby & Infant liquid is ideal for babies and young children from 3 months to 5 years to provide a carefully balanced, comprehensive range of 14 essential vitamins and minerals. Wellkid® Baby & Infant liquid also contains Swiss Alpine malt; with a delicious orange and vanilla taste your little one will love.
Wellkid® Baby & Infant liquid formula includes vitamins A, C and D, as recommended for babies over 6 months. The UK Department of Health recommends that all babies aged from six months onwards should be given a supplement that contains these vitamins.†
Wellkid® Baby & Infant liquid provides an ideal nutritional safeguard during a time when babies and infants have a high nutrient requirement in relation to body size, to support their rapid physical growth and development of bones, muscles, blood and the brain. Key nutrients include vitamin D which is needed for normal growth and development of bone in children, plus iron which contributes to normal cognitive development.
†Unless your child is drinking 500ml (or approx. 1 pint) of infant formula a day, as infant formula has vitamins added to it.
What is cognitive development?
It's easy to keep an eye on your newborn and observe the changes in weight and size as he or she grows from baby to toddler to young infant and child. However, it's not so easy to see what's happening inside the brain, but all the while it is busy developing. Right from your baby's arrival in the world, he's looking around and learning at an incredible pace.
Over time, your baby's brain will develop the skills of perception, thought, memory, language and physical co-ordination and this process by which your baby gradually learns these skills is called cognitive development.

Wellkid® Baby & Infant Liquid FAQ
Government surveys have indicated that some infants are not getting enough of certain nutrients such as iron, zinc, vitamin A and vitamin D. Many children old enough to be on solid food are not eating the recommended 5 portions of fruit and vegetables a day and so may not be getting all of the vital nutrients that their bodies need for long term health and development. Some foods may have a lower than expected nutritional content and be low in certain micronutrients as a result of several factors including modern farming practices, the lengthy storage of ‘fresh’ food before it is sold in some shops and over cooking which can cause certain nutrients to breakdown. It is important to promote a healthy diet and lifestyle in younger children as the starting point of good health and encourage positive eating and exercise habits for later in life.
