Just know that you are not failing your child if this is the case. Keeping children healthy is a challenge for everyone. Especially for those of you who have children with allergies or can be picky eaters. Luckily there are options available to you. Vitamins through BabyVites.
When it comes to getting your child the proper amount of nutrition they need in their life BabyVites is one of the best choices available. Not only do we offer vitamins for babies, but we also offer vitamins for children aged 4-12 as well. Our goal is to help children get the nutrition they are lacking in life. We do this through BabyVites.
BabyVites is an oil-based vitamin that is meant for those children who just aren’t getting enough vitamins in their life. Nutrition is incredibly important in the growth cycle of your child and vitamins are one of the best ways to help them grow up healthy and happy.
Benefits of Vitamins for children
Vitamins are one of the best ways for children to get the nutrition they’re missing out on every day, but you may be wondering if vitamins are really all that necessary for children compared to them getting daily healthy meals.
While you can contribute to your child’s growth by giving them full and healthy meals you may still be missing out on essential vitamins that they need. These vitamins ensure that your child is getting Vitamin D, Vitamin A, Vitamin E, Vitamin C, Zinc, MCT, and DHA (omega-3-fatty-acid) that they need.
Unsure how this is helping your child? Let us explain.
Words like “fatty” and “acid” have a negative connotation these days because of how we view our health, but OMEGA-3 fatty acid is an important component in your child’s growth and health. DHA plays a major role in not only have long term benefit but short term gain.
Brain Health: DHA serves as a key building block for the brain’s cell walls and cell connections.
Vision Support: The retina, found in the back of the eyeball is a layer of cells that are sensitive to light. Those cells, the rods and cones, trigger nerve impulses that pass via the optic nerve to the brain, where a visual image is formed. DHA is greatly involved in the creation of retinal cells. *Furthermore, many studies have demonstrated a strong correlation between higher infant DHA levels and improved visual acuity in the first 2 years of life.
Heart health: Both DHA and EPA have anti-inflammatory properties and have been shown to protect the heart. In the long run, these omegas help with reducing blood pressure, reducing bad cholesterol, and reducing the chances of a heart attack.
Skin Health: Supplementing with omegas has been shown to reduce allergic skin inflammation.
Supports Focus: Omegas have been shown to help improve inattention and hyperactivity. In mild cases of ADHD taking omegas has been helpful and allowed for reduced doses of stimulant medication.
Neurological Support: Children with autism have been found to have low concentrations of Omega 3 Polyunsaturated fatty acids in their brain. Based on current evidence, omega 3 supplementation cannot be recommended as an alternative to support behavioral therapies for autism spectrum disease (ASD) children, but could be used to complement other therapies.
MCT is a dietary fat that is usually found in coconut oil and acts as a form of fat absorption in both infants and children. While fat is not a bad thing, as long as your child doesn’t get too much of it, having the proper vitamins in you can help make sure that your child’s fat levels stay healthy and normal for a child.
Vitamins, A & E
Vitamins A and E are great for when children are unable to get the proper amounts in their daily meals. Typically found in fruits, veggies, and other delicious healthy foods these vitamins help children with vision, bone growth, and can even improve their immune systems.
Without these vitamins, kids could grow up to be sickly with compromised immune systems or have poor vision sooner in life than expected. With proper Vitamin A and E your child should have stronger bones, teeth, better eyes, and be less sickly as a whole.
Vitamin D is one of those vitamins that we just don’t realize we need more of. Vitamin D is usually gotten from going outside, absorbing the suns rays, and enjoying nature. Of course, not everyone can get outside. Especially when children are in school all day. Through BabyVites, you can ensure your child is getting the proper amount of Vitamin D they need.
Vitamin D could technically not be considered a vitamin, but rather a hormone our body creates when it has been exposed to the sun. Without this vitamin, your child could suffer from bone deformities or a poor immune system.
There isn’t a single vitamin we need more of in our body than Vitamin C. The human body can’t create Vitamin C on its own so, as a result, our children must get it entirely from the food and drinks they consume.
Vitamin C plays a huge role in the growth and repair of body tissue. It also helps with body functions such as the absorption of iron and our immune system. While Vitamin C deficiencies are rare in the United States it can lead to scurvy. If your child isn’t able to get much fruit in their diet then BabyVites is a great source of Vitamin C for them.
Zinc is another important component of our body that we can’t make on our own. To get zinc children must get it from the food they eat or vitamin supplements such as BabyVites. Zinc is another component that contributes towards healthy bones and skin, but can also help your child maintain healthy hair as well.
While Zinc can be consumed from food like whole grains or milk, there are sometimes other elements that will block the amount of zinc you absorb. Supplements like BabyVites can help ensure your child is getting all the zinc they need.
So why BabyVites? What pushes us above any other vitamin choices. What makes us special? Well not only do we offer BabyVites to multiple age groups, which should be proof enough that we care about the growth of your child from birth to adolescence, but we offer something that no one else can. A vegetarian and fish-free oil.
Finding vitamin oils can be difficult for families with children who have seafood or shellfish allergies because so many of the options out there are fish oil-based. At BabyVites, we create our oil from algae oil. The same algae that the krill fish feed on are getting many of these vitamins from.
Through this we have created a vegetarian vitamin that is not only great for keeping your child healthy but allows parents of children with allergies to give their child vitamins without fear of harming them.
Please note that these vitamins are VEGETARIAN and not VEGAN. There is whey protein in BabyVitamins and while not everyone who is lactose intolerant reacts negatively to whey protein we do want to be as transparent as possible.
One of the best benefits of BabyVites is how easy it is to insert into your child’s meals. A negative effect of many oil vitamins is they taste fishy and gross. Hard to sneak that into the meals of a picky eater. This problem does not exist with BabyVites.
Drop some oil into a smoothie, or maybe put some in a meal you are making for them. BabyVites can be inserted into meals without fear of having picky kids spitting it back out. This way you can make sure they’re still getting the vitamins they need.
