It can be difficult to get the right amount of vitamins in your child’s diet, especially if they’re a fussy eater.
That’s why the Department of Health recommends that all children from six months to five years old should have a daily vitamin supplement containing Vitamins A, C and D.
While a healthy, balanced diet may contain adequate vitamins A and C, it is very difficult to get the right amount of vitamin D through food alone. That is because most vitamin D is produced through exposure to direct sunlight.
It may not be possible to get enough vitamin D during the winter months, and you don’t want to risk your child getting sunburned during summer.
That’s why a vitamin supplement is the safest and most convenient way to ensure your child gets the vitamins they need.
Why are vitamins important?
Vitamins are vital to the normal growth and development of the body. That’s why it's particularly important that children get the vitamins they need.
Vitamin A helps support the immune system as it develops, which means it is very important for children. Vitamin A also helps keep the eyes and skin healthy.
Vitamin C also helps the immune system develop. It also helps the body absorb iron more efficiently. Iron helps keep blood healthy.
Vitamin D is important for bone development. It helps to regulate the amount of calcium in the body, keeping bones, teeth and muscles healthy.
As children are growing and developing, these vitamins are particularly important for them.
