Everything You Need To Know About Vitamins For Kids
Growing up is an exciting time of new discoveries and experiences, learning and development. Growing children require the right vitamins, minerals and nutrients to thrive, grow and develop but sometimes, despite your all your hard efforts to prepare delicious healthy meals, children can be fussy about what they will and won’t eat.
Many children do not eat 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 children and encourage positive eating and exercise habits for later in life. Food supplements are of course not a substitute for a healthy balanced diet! Children who don't eat a varied diet, sometimes don't get enough vitamins A and C.The UK Department of Health recommends that all children aged 6 months to 5 years are given vitamin supplements containing Vitamin A, Vitamin C and Vitamin D every day. Vitamin D is needed for the normal growth and development of bones in children, as well as contributing to the normal function of their immune system. A multivitamin combining these key nutrients can be a convenient way to safeguard any gaps in your child’s diet. Our Wellkid range, suitable from 3-14 years, includes multivitamins, minerals, and single Vitamin D supplements.
