Children's growth and development

Wellkid Calcium Liquid provides vitamin D. It is scientifically proven that calcium and vitamin D are needed for normal growth and development of bone in children. It is recommended that everyone over the age of 5 years should consider taking a vitamin D supplement. Source: NHS Choices

Evidence suggests that healthy practices early in life, including the adequate consumption of calcium and trace elements, contribute to normal bone health and optimal bone mineralisation. Peak bone mass, obtained during childhood and adolescent growth is known to be of major importance in maintaining bones later in life.

The calcium in Wellkid Calcium Liquid is in the form of calcium carbonate, which provides the highest concentration of elemental calcium possible in a supplement. The calcium carbonate used is of high pharmaceutical grade from a natural source. To prevent possible contamination with metals such as lead, oyster calcium and bone-dolomite have not been included in the Wellkid Calcium Liquid formulation. Top

Some Nutrient Reference Value (NRV) levels are above 100%, is this safe?

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 has 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.

Wellkid Reviews


Write a review

"The Wellkid Peppa Pig vitamins are the first vitamins my five-year-old son has ever willingly taken! Normally, he can't bring himself to chew let alone finish a gummy vitamin but he actively looks forward to taking these. I've had to hide the jar from him as he's so keen! The other day, we came home and he ran straight to the living room to get a vitamin, which he sat sucking while doing his homework - unprompted! They seem to be something of a miracle product."

Mrs G G, United Kingdom

"I would like to thank you for your outstanding Wellkid products that I have recently tried over the last occurring months. You see, I cannot have certain foods because of my dietary needs. I will continue buying your products as I enjoy them greatly and prefer them to other brands. Sent with many thanks. "

“Hi, Just a quick email to give a little feedback. My 4 year old son, who is a very fussy eater, uses your soft jelly vitamins and he absolutely loves them. We are currently using the strawberry flavour, he happily eats one a day.  Thank you and we look forward to continuing to use your products in the future.”

Mrs S Mummery, United Kingdom

"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!"

Mrs A Y, Japan

"I have been using Vitabiotics for my children for many years and I am very happy with it. First of all, we trust the brand, the children like the tablets as they are chewable and taste great, and unlike many others in the market, they are also suitable for vegetarians. My children take them daily: One of my children is the Italian and British U10 Chess Champion, one is already studying a degree course in Mathematics at the age of 15 (not to mention his other many academic achievements at a very young age) and one is a little prodigy in playing the Piano, therefore is essential I take good care of their diet, especially when travelling to other countries, and I feel they benefit from good vitamins supplements like WellKid."

Mrs T Contu, United Kingdom

"I have recently started using WellKid baby drops for my daughter who is currently 8 weeks old and am writing to say how fab they are! The syringe makes it so easy to give to her and she LOVES the orange taste!

I will be continuing to use the wellkid products throughout her childhood! "
