Best Vitamins for Kids – Do they need supplements?
Everything that has a strong base, survives better against the ups and downs of the environment. Similarly, every parent wants their children to be strong in both ways; physically and mentally, which can be gained through a balanced and nutrient dense diet.
When is the extra nutrition required?
Once children enter into the toddler age, the nutrient requirements of their body also enter into an advance level. Toddlers or school going children need extra nutrition for improving their attention span and to perform better in his/her practical life. The ideal toddler age starts from 3 or 4 years to onwards.
What nutrients are essential in growing age?
For better attention span, a child’s body needs iron in considerable amounts. As this nutrient is involved in the proper working and homeostasis of neurotransmitters. Moreover, a growing kid’s body is also in need of zinc and vitamin C to improve its immunity status. That’s why these nutrients must be provided either through diet or through food supplements. Besides these, calcium, vitamin A & D are also very important in growing years of a kid.
