Essential Vitamins for Children
The importance of getting enough essential nutrients in order to maintain a good state of health is well documented. An inadequate supply of vitamins during childhood can have a negative effect on growth and development, and can also have an impact later on in life.
The fact that children can often be fussy eaters, coupled with the challenges of a busy schedule, can sometimes lead to quick and convenient meal choices. Although a well-balanced diet should always be the priority, most parents would probably agree that getting children to eat well all the time is often easier said than done. Our specially formulated Children’s Multivitamin supplement has been developed to harmonise with a healthy lifestyle, and can help give you peace of mind that your child is receiving a range of the nutrients they need for proper growth and development.
Children need Vitamin A for normal growth and development. This essential fat-soluble vitamin contributes to:
The maintenance of normal skin The maintenance of normal vision The normal function of the immune system The normal process of cell specialisation The maintenance of normal mucus membranes Vitamin C
Vitamin C is a versatile water-soluble vitamin with a range of functions. It supports children’s health in the following ways:
Contributes to collagen formation for normal bones, teeth, gums and skin Contributes to the normal functioning of the immune system Contributes to normal psychological function Contributes to normal energy yielding metabolism Contributes to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue Vitamin D
Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin that the body synthesises from sunlight. However, sunlight exposure during autumn and winter is typically low. As a result, official advice is to take a vitamin D supplement. As an essential nutrient it has the following functions:
Supports the normal absorption of calcium Supports the growth and development of healthy bones Supports normal muscle function Supports the maintenance of normal teeth Supports normal immune function
The above health claims have all been authorised by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA).
