Written by Josephine DalyIs your child’s nutrition becoming a confusing puzzle?
Dr. Christine Wood, M. D., a pediatrician and author of the book “How to Get Kids to Eat Great & Love It!” and website www.kidseatgreat.com, international speaker on the topic of childhood nutrition says on Multivitamins…
“Because kids can be erratic in their eating habits and because there are more toxins that a child must fight, quality supplementing is important. You should ensure your child is obtaining nutrients from three basic categories: Multivitamin, Calcium and Vitamin D, and Omega-3 essential fatty acids.
Kids today are overfed and undernourished and studies show they are often not receiving enough of the basic important nutrients in their diet. There is increasing concern about vitamin D deficiency with kids and many children are not getting enough calcium in their diets. Omega-3 essential fatty acids are of key importance and support brain development and heart health. Look for pharmaceutical –grade products with guaranteed potency and quality”.
USANA’s Usanimals is a balanced formula that supports healthy growth and development in children with an excellent range of essential vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants your child needs for healthy immune function and energy levels, bone support, growth and development.
Whether your child is intellectual, sporty or simply full of life, good nutrition is the foundation and building blocks for a healthy body and mind. So let’s take a look at what Usanimals has to offer…
