The majority of products sold on Vitabiotics.com have a minimum of at least six months until their best before date, usually much longer. Occasionally we do offer a limited range of products, such as this one, with a shorter shelf life, typically between 2-6 months, at a discounted price.
Government surveys have indicated that children's diets can sometimes be low in certain nutrients such as iron, vitamin A and vitamin D. Many children are also 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 overcooking 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. Wellkid Immune Chewable supplements, but does not replace, a healthy balanced diet!
Wellkid Immune Chewable contains 30 one-a-day chewable tablets per pack.
Suitable for children aged 4-12 years old. Chew one Wellkid Immune Chewable tablet daily, preferably with a main meal. These tablets have not been designed to be swallowed whole. Wellkid Immune Chewable tablets should not be given to children under 4 years of age. Do not exceed the recommended intake.
Wellkid Immune Chewable tablets have no known side-effects when taken as directed. Do not exceed the recommended daily intake. In case of overdose, seek medical advice immediately. As with all supplements, seek professional advice before using if your child is under medical supervision or suffers from any food allergies. Wellkid Immune Chewable is low in sugar and instead contains natural source sucralose and xylitol. Sucralose is a sweetener that tastes likes sugar and is made from sugar, but without the calories. Xylitol is a naturally occurring sweetener which is kind to teeth. Excessive consumption of Xylitol may cause a laxative effect.
Calcium is an essential mineral, needed for normal growth and development of bone in children. However, it has not been included in the Wellkid® Immune Chewable formula, as it is not possible to include the right amount in one tablet.
Rather than including just a token amount of calcium, Wellkid Immune Chewable has been designed so that it can be taken alongside Wellkid Calcium Liquid, which contains calcium and vitamin D that help maintain the normal growth and development of bone in children.
Yes. Wellkid Immune Chewable contains flaxseed oil as a vegetarian source of Omega-3 and so is suitable for vegetarians.

No. Like all other products in the Vitabiotics range, Wellkid Immune Chewable has not been tested on animals.
Certain vitamins are very safe at levels tens or even hundreds of times the NRV, whereas for others the safety level is much closer to the NRV. For this reason every vitamin and mineral needs to considered on an individual basis in terms of its upper safe level.
The Nutrient Reference Value (NRV) is the amount of a vitamin or mineral which has been calculated to help prevent basic deficiency states in the general population. However, certain vitamins and minerals at optimal levels, above the NRV, have consistently been shown to have positive benefits in specific areas of health. This is why some Vitabiotics formulas have certain nutrient levels greater than 100% NRV.
All Vitabiotics products have been developed using the latest research and contain effective levels of vitamins and minerals, while avoiding any excessive amounts, in accordance with official upper safe limits for vitamins and minerals.
Vitabiotics avoids "mega dose" levels of isolated nutrients and instead we have always stressed the importance of safe, moderate and sensible levels of vitamins and minerals, carefully balanced to maximise their combined effect; an approach which has been supported by many experts and researchers over the years.
Each Wellkid Immune Chewable pack contains a 30 day supply (1 month), we recommend subscribing to 1 pack every 1 month.
