The Wellkid vitamin range for children provides great all-round, carefully balanced formulas for your kids aged 4-12 years. If you're looking for a comprehensive formula with more than vitamins A, C and D, or the ideal Omega-3 or calcium supplement for kids, the Vitabiotics' range of children's vitamins has it covered.
Wellkid Multi-vitamin Smart Chewable has been produced with children's specific needs in mind to provide a comprehensive range of 21 nutrients to help safeguard your child's nutritional intake. It comes in an all-natural excellent tasting strawberry milk flavour or mixed fruit flavour.
Wellkid Smart Chewable includes vitamins A, C and D, as recommended by the UK Department of Health which advises that all children up to the age of 5 years should be given a supplement that contains these vitamins.
It is also recommended that everyone over the age of 5 years should consider taking a daily Vitamin D supplement.
Support for rapid development
Vitamin D is needed for normal growth and development of bone in children and also contributes to their normal immune system function. The vitamin D is included in the preferred form D3 (Cholecalciferol) which is naturally produced by the skin when exposed to direct sunlight. Bones get stronger when used and any kind of physical exercise is great for your kids such as walking, running, hiking, dancing, tennis, basketball, gymnastics, and soccer. Children who tend to play outside will also have higher vitamin D levels.
For mothers particularly concerned about the normal bone health of their children we recommend Wellkid Calcium Liquid, which can be taken alongside Wellkid Smart Chewable Tablets.
Wellkid Smart Chewable also includes iodine which contributes to normal growth in children and iron which contributes to normalÂ cognitive development in children.

The challenges of healthy eating
Growth is especially rapid during the first 12 years of a child's life. Continuous development of bones, muscles, blood and the brain mean that children have a high nutrient requirement relative to their body size. Meeting these requirements can sometimes be a challenge and it is very common for children to be fussy eaters. You may find your child refusing to eat certain foods, or dislikes certain textures or tastes, or that they are reluctant to try new foods. The good news is that children usually grow out of fussy eating and in the meantime there are several small, easy actions that you can take to help mealtimes run more smoothly.
Government national dietary surveys have indicated that children's diets can be low in certain nutrients including vitamin A & D, and also iron, which contributes to normal cognitive development of children. This is especially true for vegetarians as iron from non-meat sources is not as easily absorbed by the body. Wellkid Smart Chewable is suitable for vegetarians and so is an ideal way of helping to ensure your child receives enough iron.
Many children are also not eating the recommended 5 portions of fruit and vegetables a day and so may not be getting all of the vital nutrients that their bodies need for long term health and development. Some foods may have a lower than expected nutritional content and be low in certain micronutrients as a result of several factors including modern farming practices, the lengthy storage of 'fresh' food before it is sold in some shops and over cooking which can cause certain nutrients to breakdown. It is important to promote a healthy diet and lifestyle in children and encourage positive eating and exercise habits for later in life. Food supplements are of course not a substitute for a healthy balanced diet.
