Supporting kids growth, development and immunity

The rapid growth and active lifestyle of most Kiwi kids demands ongoing and effective nutrition for energy, strength and general wellbeing.

But our busy lifestyles often mean we don’t get the time we need each day to provide our children with the healthy meals their growth and development demands.

Support their developing immunity

Our kids spend lots of time together at kindy or in the classroom. In the winter especially, a confined space can mean lots of germs are more easily spread, and your little ones need a strong immune system to keep those bugs at bay!

Along with providing a great diet, teaching kids to wash their hands properly and cover their coughs and sneezes, there are certain nutrients that kids need to support a healthy and resilient immune system.

Vitamin C and the mineral zinc are essential nutrients our bodies need to support healthy immunity and probiotics are necessary for good gut health and are essential for a robust immune response. If your child does come down with ills and chills, then try the healing power of honey and Black Elderberry.

Boost their energy supply

If you have ever sat watching kids you will know that they don’t tend to walk- they skip, jump, run and hop and all of this requires a steady supply of energy.

Energise your kids by providing them with a wholesome diet. Ditch the white bread, bars, chips and biscuits – these only provide short spurts of energy. Opt instead for powerhouse meals full of whole grains, nuts and seeds, yoghurt, fruit and veges.

If lunch boxes are coming home from school untouched and the kids seem a bit sluggish then get them into a good kid’s multi to cover those nutritional bases.

Growing strong

Children reach their peak bone mass between the ages of 18-20 so it’s crucial that they get all the building blocks they need for well-structured and resilient bones early in life. Calcium, an important mineral for bones and teeth is also vital for healthy muscle function. Other essential bone building nutrients, such as Vitamin D, are required for the body to absorb calcium and help to make a strong bone matrix. Vitamin D also supports a healthy immune response and brain function.

    I agree totally kids do need more vitamins and minerals which they dont get from their limites fussy eating… what has surprised me is that my kids love these gummies even though one we bought has a fish oil ingredient and not pleasant for me but for them they are sweets we actually offer them… since we have been giving them i do believe it has made a difference to them and does boost immunity.

    I didn’t realise the radiance produced so many different types of gummies. I first tried these with my kids when younger and they loved them. It is also important to eat healthy as well as the article suggests if they are tired they may need a good multi vitamin. I know my children have been quite sick lately and then I started thinking they need a supplement. The vitamin c, zinc and probiotic gummies sound ideal for year round immunity. I will have to try these again for the kids and see if they like them.

    I think it’s really important that kids take some sort of supplement, we give our daughter daily vitamin C and lately we were given an organic rosehip elixir she has been taking, which is a high vitamin c dose. She has been sick fairly often since she was young with croup and I’m hoping she will grow out of it as her body grows. We feed her healthy food and organic where possible as I think this makes a difference too. Kids have busy lives too as much as adults do need some extra 🙂

    These sound like a great vitamin having read all the benefits of these it truly makes it sound like an essential to buy. As they say its hard juggling everything and then ontop of that trying to make sure the kids are keeping healthy and eating healthy which is never easy with fussy children. Definitely will have to try these for my children especially because they help with immunity growth and energy which are vital for children of school age.
