The Benefits Of A Multivitamin For Kids

Feeling nervous that your kids aren't getting the nutrients they need? Maybe they're picky eaters, or maybe you're just busy running between activities and meals need a nutrient boost.

Multivitamins for kids offer several potential benefits when used as part of a balanced and healthy diet. Dr. Morris recommends a multivitamin for all of the kids she works with.

Here are some of benefits of multivitamins for kids:

  1. Nutritional insurance: Children can have dietary gaps, if they’re picky eaters or have limited food choices. A multivitamin can help fill these nutrient gaps and ensure they are receiving a wide range of essential vitamins and minerals necessary for proper growth and development.
  2. Optimal growth and development: Vitamins and minerals play crucial roles in various bodily functions, including the development of strong bones, healthy immune system, and proper cognitive function. 
  3. Energy and vitality: Adequate intake of vitamins and minerals supports energy production and overall vitality. 
  4. Immune system support: Vitamin C, vitamin D, and zinc, are essential for a healthy immune system. A multivitamin can help bolster the immune system, especially during times when children may be more susceptible to illnesses.
  5. Cognitive function and concentration: B vitamins, iron, and omega-3 fatty acids, are important for brain health and cognitive function. A multivitamin that includes these nutrients supports brain development and enhances focus and concentration in children.

Even if your child is eating a whole and balanced diet, it may not be enough. Due to conventional farming practices (think GMOs, pesticides, herbicides, higher crop yields, etc.), our food provides lower nutritional value than the food our grandparents were eating. With that said, multivitamins should be used as a supplement to a nutritious diet, not a replacement, and the specific needs of each child should be considered under the guidance of your doctor.

What multi-vitamin does Dr. Morris give to her kids?

Kids Complete, of course! When I need something sweet, sometimes I take a tablet or two, too! Shh, don't tell the kids. My kids take 1-2 tablets in the morning and another 1-2 tablets before bed.
