Essential Vitamins For Children

Growing children do not get enough nutrients like vitamin A, C and D, especially those who tend to eat less. It is difficult to get these vitamins through food alone. That is why medical experts recommend that all children above 6 months should be given daily dietary supplements that contain vitamin A, C and D. Babies who are on infant formula should not be given any supplement, as the formula already contains certain nutrients.

Your medical advisor is the right person to provide advice on safe and effective vitamin drops, so talk to him/her about the supplement that is most appropriate for your baby. Excessive use of certain vitamins is not advisable, as it can prove fatal to your baby’s health. Check the recommended dosage of vitamins and be careful. Do not give more than stated dose of supplement to your child. For instance, do not give vitamin drops and cod liver oil, as the latter already contains vitamin A & D.

  • Vitamin A – This nutrient strengthens your child’s immune system, improves vision and maintains healthy skin
  • Vitamin C – It helps absorb iron and enhances immune system and overall health
  • Vitamin D – A very important vitamin for overall growth and development, especially the teeth and bones

Dairy products, carrots, sweet potatoes, mangoes and dark green leafy vegetables are a few good sources of vitamin A. Tomatoes, oranges, kiwi fruit, berries and broccoli are good sources of vitamin C. One of the natural sources of vitamin D is sunlight. However, do not let children get more sun directly. Protect or cover up their skin from sunrays.

Vitabiotics Wellbaby Multi-Vitamin Drops contain all the essential vitamins that your baby needs. Apart from vitamin supplement, it is imperative for your child to eat healthily so that he/she can meet the daily requirements. Make sure you seek medical help before giving any supplement to your child.
