Wellkid Immune Chewable

Comprehensive supplement for kids

Wellkid - immune chewableWellkid Immune Chewable tablets have been produced with children's specific needs in mind to provide a comprehensive range of 24 nutrients to help safeguard your child's nutritional intake. They come in a great tasting, natural orange & lemon flavour.

Wellkid Immune Chewable includes vitamins A, C and D, as recommended by the UK Department of Health which advises that all children up to the age of 5 years should be given a supplement that contains these vitamins.

It is also recommended that everyone over the age of 5 years should consider taking a daily Vitamin D supplement. Source: NHS Choices

Immune system support

Wellkid Immune Chewable contains vitamin D, which contributes to normal immune system function in children. It also contains supporting botanical ingredients including citrus bioflavonoids, natural carotenoids and vegetarian flaxseed oil.

Support for rapid development

Wellkid Immune Chewable is formulated with iodine which contributes to normal growth in children, plus vitamin D. Vitamin D is needed for normal growth and development of bones in children. The vitamin D in Wellkid Immune Chewable is included in the form vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol) that is naturally produced by the skin when exposed to direct sunlight.

Calcium is an essential mineral, also 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. For mothers particularly concerned about the normal bone health of their children we recommend Wellkid Calcium Liquid, which can be taken alongside Wellkid Immune Chewable and contains calcium and vitamin D.

The challenges of healthy eating

Growth is especially rapid during the first 12 years of a child's life. Continuous development of bones, muscles, blood and the brain mean that children have a high nutrient requirement compared to their body size. Meeting those nutritional requirements can be a challenge, as it is common for children to be fussy eaters. You may experience your child refusing to eat certain foods, disliking certain tastes or textures, or being reluctant to try new foods. Children usually grow out of fussy eating and in the meantime nutritional supplements such as Wellkid Immune Chewable tablets can help safeguard a child's nutritional intake as part of a balanced diet.

Government surveys have indicated that children's diets can be low in certain nutrients such as iron, which contributes to normal cognitive development of children. This is especially true for vegetarians, as iron from non-meat sources may not be as easily absorbed by the body. Wellkid Immune Chewable tablets are formulated with moderate levels of iron and are suitable for vegetarians.

Wellkid Immune Chewable FAQ

Why is it that children may benefit from nutritional supplements?

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! Top

How many tablets does one pack of Wellkid Immune Chewable contain?

Wellkid Immune Chewable contains 30 one-a-day chewable tablets per pack. Top

How and when should Wellkid Immune Chewable be taken?

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. Top

Are there any undesired effects whilst taking Wellkid Immune Chewable?

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. Top

Is Wellkid Immune Chewable recommended with any other Vitabiotics products?

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. Top

Is Wellkid Immune Chewable suitable for vegetarians?

Yes. Wellkid Immune Chewable contains flaxseed oil as a vegetarian source of Omega-3 and so is suitable for vegetarians. Top

Need help swallowing a tablet or capsule?

Difficulty in swallowing tablets is quite a common experience. Vitabiotics have researched this extensively and recommend after chewing some food (e.g. banana), just before you swallow, pop the tablet into your mouth and swallow it together with the chewed food, followed by some liquid. The throat opens up wider to swallow the chewed food and so the tablet should go down with greater ease. Alternatively, the tablets may be swallowed with thicker liquids such as yoghurts or smoothies. Top

Is Wellkid Immune Chewable kind to teeth?

Wellkid Immune Chewable contains 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. Top

Has Wellkid Immune Chewable been tested on animals?

No. Like all other products in the Vitabiotics range, Wellkid Immune Chewable has not been tested on animals. 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 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.

Wellkid Reviews

"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! She is actually getting excited when she sees me get the bottle out to give her and opens her mouth and looks disappointed when it is all gone! I will be continuing to use the wellkid products throughout her childhood! "

Food supplements must not replace a varied and balanced diet and a healthy lifestyle. As with other food supplements, seek professional advice before giving to your child if they are under medical supervision or suffer from food allergies. Excessive consumption may produce laxative effects. This product contains iron, which, if taken in excess, may be harmful to very young children.
