Why are vitamins necessary for children's health?
Vitamins are essential nutrients that the body needs to function correctly. They play a role in many different processes in the body, including cell growth, immunity, and metabolism.
While the body can produce some vitamins independently, others must be obtained through diet or supplementation.
Here's why it's a good idea to ensure your child gets certain nutrients in supplement form:
Your child's diet isn't enough
A healthy diet should provide all the nutrients a child needs, but often children fail to consume a well-balanced diet. We live in the age of junk food, and many children grow up wanting takeaways, sugary treats and anything other than their five-a-day.
If your child doesn't get enough nutrients from diet alone, a vitamin D supplement or iron-containing supplement will make a big difference to their health.
Vitamins can help to fill nutritional gaps
Because children may not get all the nutrients they need from their diet alone, vitamins can help fill any nutritional gaps. Vitamin supplements can help ensure that children get the vitamins they need for good health.
For example, some children won't eat oily fish, but it contains many healthy nutrients, and it's the same with iron-rich foods. Replacing these dietary requirements with supplements ensure your child receives their daily recommended intake, without any mealtime battles.
Prevent health problems
Vitamins are essential in many different processes in the body and can help prevent an array of health problems. For example, vitamins C and D can boost your child's immune system and keep their bones and skin healthy.
Supplements high in omega-3 are also beneficial because they enhance brain health and ensure your child gets enough nutritional support, even if they're picky eaters.
What vitamin and mineral supplements do children need?
Children have varying vitamin needs, so it's essential to find the right supplements for yours. We offer multivitamins in gummy form that contain important nutrients for healthy children.
Here are some of the essential vitamins a child needs to remain healthy.
Vitamin A is excellent for eyesight and can also boost the immune system, ensuring the body can fight infections. While plenty of foods contain vitamin A, ensuring your child has a healthy daily dose is still a good idea.
There are plenty of variants of vitamin B, and some are more important than others for children. Vitamin B1 (also known as thiamine) ensures your child is able to produce enough energy and helps the body convert food sources to energy.
Then we have vitamins B6 and B7, which promote normal body functioning and help the body metabolise food.
Vitamin B12 is also responsible for metabolic processes, and many people with a deficiency notice they're tired and lack concentration.
Vitamin C is a vital nutrient for young people as it boosts white blood cell production and reduce the risks of infections. We also know that vitamin C can protect your cells from damage and produce collagen, which boosts skin and bone development.
Of course, many children get a lot of vitamin C in their daily diet, but supplements can help if your child doesn't consume enough fruit and vegetables.
Vitamin D is essential for children's health in many ways. It's also known as the sunshine vitamin and can prevent conditions such as rickets and infections. However, vitamin D is also beneficial for ensuring the body absorbs calcium properly.
If your child gets enough of the vitamin, they'll be less likely to develop infections and be healthier. Staying in the sun all day to boost your vitamin levels is counterproductive, but our vitamin supplements can provide a safer way to get a healthy dose of vitamin D.
Zinc is a material that's central to a child's development. If your children have too little zinc in their bodies, it can result in stunted growth and an inadequate immune system, where children can develop infections quickly.
Some people with zinc deficiency might struggle to reach and maintain a healthy weight and suffer from delayed wound healing.
Unfortunately, iron deficiency is a common problem, and it can have various effects on children. They include fatigue, an inability to concentrate and weakness, which can impact a child's education and social life.
However, it's important to remember that too much iron can also harm a child's health, so you should never give them an adult supplement as the dosage will be too high.
