Healtheries Caring for Kids: Nutrition

Growing bodies need nutrient for normal, healthy development. Making sure that our kids get the nutrients that they need can often be a challenge.

With the focus on childhood obesity, it’s easy to think of food in terms of its energy value alone. But when we feed our kids, we’re providing them with far more than just kilojoules. We’re also giving their growing bodies the nutrients they need for normal, healthy development.

Growing bodies need nutrient for normal, healthy development. Making sure that our kids get the nutrients that they need can often be a challenge.

Just like adults, children need a balanced diet with a range of fruit, veges, whole grains, lean proteins and healthy fats.  This ensures they get the macronutrients (carbohydrates, proteins and fats) they need.  It also helps them to get all the vitamins, minerals and other important nutrients their bodies demand. But what happens if your kids are picky eaters or can’t tolerate some nutrient-rich foods?  Supplements aren’t a substitute for a healthy diet, but they’re great for topping up any shortfalls. 

If you’d like the peace of mind of knowing your children are getting the nutrition they need, Healtheries has you covered…

First, get back to (balanced) basics...Children need a wide range of vitamins, minerals and other important nutrients in age-appropriate doses.  Most adult multivitamins are simply too strong for little bodies. Besides which, if supplements don’t appeal to younger taste buds, kids will often refuse to take them. 

Don’t forget the natural immune support! Children’s immune systems are still developing, and coughs and sniffles don’t only strike in winter.  Poor immunity can lead to missed school days – not to mention sick, tired, crabby kids. Keep their immunity high year-round naturally with extra Vitamin C and other immune-supporting nutrients and herbs. (Plus, Vitamin C plays an essential role in cell growth and development, which makes it especially important for growing children).
