Wellbaby Multi-vitamin Liquid

Wellbaby - Multi-vitamin liquid

Carefully balanced supplement for babies & infants

From the makers of Pregnacare, Wellbaby Multi-vitamin Liquid is ideal for babies and young children from 6 months to 4 years to provide a carefully balanced, comprehensive range of 14 essential vitamins and minerals. Wellbaby Multi-vitamin Liquid also contains Swiss Alpine malt; with a delicious orange taste your little one will love.

Wellbaby Multi-vitamin Liquid formula includes vitamins A, C and D. The UK Department of Health recommends that all children aged 6 months to five years should be given a supplement that contains these vitamins.

Wellbaby Multi-vitamin 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 iron, which contributes to normal cognitive development, and vitamin D, which is needed for normal growth and development of bone in children. Vitamin D also contributes to their normal immune system function.

For convenience and to avoid spillages, we recommend that the liquid can be mixed into your baby's usual milk or juice. (See formula page for Directions)

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?

Wellbaby - Multi-vitamin liquid

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.

Wellbaby Multi-vitamin Liquid FAQ

Why is it that children may benefit from nutritional supplements?

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.

From the makers of Pregnacare, Wellbaby Multi-vitamin Liquid has been developed especially for babies and infants to provide a safe and balanced comprehensive range of 14 vitamins, minerals and Swiss Alpine malt as a natural energy source. Food supplements are of course never a substitute for a healthy balanced diet Top

"I had taken Pregnacare when I was pregnant with my son and the doctor who delivered him remarked that he had never seen such an alert baby! When he was old enough, I gave him WellBaby drops and now that he is 4 years old, I give him the WellKid Jelly Pastilles. He absolutely loves the taste and always looks forward to taking his vitamins. My son is bilingual, and is growing up healthy and strong and everyone comments on how fast he picks up things. Thank you very much for worldwide shipping!"
