High-output vitamins for high-energy kids.
Let's face the facts. You probably would not be reading this unless you are having some issues with your child's eating habits. The truth is that kids usually don't eat the way we would like them to eat, and a picky eater is especially hard pressed to get all the vitamins, minerals and other important nutrients he or she needs. Processed foods and junk foods do not contain much nutritional value and are mostly unhealthy fats, refined or artificial sugar, and flour’s that are stripped of their nutrients, leaving ‘empty calories’. Nutrition is the cornerstone of good health.
Beginning with breastfeeding and then starting solids, we have a lifetime of eating choices ahead of us. Choosing the freshest whole foods available, provides infants, toddlers and young children with what they need for proper growth, development and optimal health.
Did you know?
- From birth to age 3, brain development is particularly sensitive to a baby’s nutrition, and kids develop 75% of their brain capacity during this crucial time.
- After age 2, diets should be moderately low in fat to avoid the development of heart disease, obesity, and other health problems down the road.
- By age 5, kids will have completed 90% of their brain development.
- Between ages 11 and 16, a major spurt in growth often occurs, with significant weight gain and muscle growth.

Starting early with the best dietary supplements is an easy way to guarantee they get the nutrition their growing bodies need. Remember that taking dietary supplements isn't a cure-all for an unhealthy diet, so be sure to continue offering healthy food choices to your kids. Even picky eaters will eat some healthy foods. We know. We have one.
