Children require an abundance of vitamins and minerals for their growth and development, most of which can be found in a variety of foods including fruit, vegetables, grains, dairy, lean meats and more. Although an adequate diet can provide children with the vitamins and minerals they need, this can at times be easier said than done especially when your children are fussy eaters, have food intolerances or allergies, have vegetarian or vegan diets or chronic medical conditions. This is where vitamins for kids can help.

Important nutrients for children include Iron, Vitamin D, Iodine, Vitamin C, Calcium, Vitamin A, Vitamin B and Zinc among others. If your GP or health professional has indicated a need for supplemental nutrition or your children need a bit of extra help strengthening their immune system from a cold caught at school or day care, we have two supplements from one of our favourite brands, Herbs of Gold, which could help out!
