In our busy practice, we see plenty of children, especially Dr. Heather. We are often asked by parents if their child needs to take vitamins.
The short answer is, “Yes.” The food supply has diminished quality and quantity of vitamins and minerals. Endless exposure to toxins in our environment means that the child needs the most amount of support possible.
The longer explanation starts off with education and questions.
These questions give us answers and serves to educate parents on why supplements supplement a healthy diet.
In our opinion, kids need these four vitamin supplements on a daily basis to stay happy and healthy in a 21st century world.
Make it fun!
Some parents only use a special cup or mug for the kid’s vitamins. Maybe a Disney or Sesame Street cup.
Explain to your children the importance of staying healthy. Let them know that these vitamins will make them grow, make them smarter, and make them stronger.
Take YOUR supplements when they do. It’s a family thing. Be consistent in this ritual.
Give them a little reward for taking their vitamins. Maybe it’s a few apple slices, a new book or a small toy. This really helps in the beginning to get them on the path.
Let us know your tips to getting kids to take their vitamins so we can share this information with other parents.
