Childrens' Health Guide

The first few years of a child’s life are crucial. Healthy habits begun in childhood may lead to a long and happy life. A rich and varied diet and plenty of exercise are obviously key to health but – as we all know – sometimes real life isn’t always that simple. Faddy eating affecting so many kids can leave gaps in the spectrum of nutrients that young bodies need to develop and grow up fit and strong.

The government recommends keeping children well stocked with Vitamins A, C and D (www.eatwell.gov.uk). These three essential nutrients help to form healthy bones and teeth and help maintain normal night vision. Multivitamins will almost always contain vitamins A, C and D, and supplements are available to specifically target these three essential Vitamins for children.

In addition, government advice suggests that kids should be eating two portions of fish per week (www.eatwell.gov.uk), one of them oily. A daunting thought perhaps, but it’s worth bearing in mind that the essential fatty acid, Omega-3 oil can be purchased to supplement any diet. However in addition it has to be remembered that Fish can also be an excellent source of protein and it contains essential vitamins and minerals, such as selenium and iodine. Many of these oils are also available in flavourless or even fruit-flavoured supplements that won’t cause a fight at the dinner table. Omega-3, as well as other health benefits, may support concentration and play a part in maintaining healthy brain function.

Multivitamins supplements sometimes also contain key minerals such as iron, which can help build blood cells, and calcium for strong bones and teeth. However we would always recommend to read the label as not all multivitamin contain the same formulations.
