The 3 Supplements Your Kids Need this Back-to-School Season
Getting ready for the new school year is the time to get into healthy habits, ensuring that kids have a strong start to the season. We’ve outlined a few supplements that can make a difference in your child’s health and academic success. Adding them to your daily routine is as easy as ABC!
Even if you send kids to school with fun containers, encouraging notes, and colourful foods, how can you make sure they get the nutrients they need? A multivitamin!
Children’s multivitamins fill potential nutritional gaps and support optimal health. Kids with food allergies, intolerances or dietary restrictions may be at an increased risk of vitamin and mineral shortages, so they may especially benefit from taking a multivitamin.
Pediatri Vite is a great multi for kids, with more than ten vitamins and minerals, a convenient liquid formula, and a delicious cherry flavour!
Another option is the Children’s Chewable Vitamins, which combine more than fifteen vitamins and minerals, rutin, and rose hips to support normal growth and development. Kids will love the yummy papaya and orange-flavoured chewables, and parents will love that their kids are getting their vitamins!
Cough & Cold Relief
Sharing pencils, erasers and paper is a great way for kids to develop social skills. But when it comes to germs, sharing is not always caring!
To help prepare for the back-to-school season, it’s important to develop a routine of healthy habits. Think proper hand washing, coughing and sneezing into your elbow, and not sharing school supplies, toys, and snacks. But even when we think we’re teaching germs a lesson; our kids always seem to bring home a lot more than homework. So how can you help them when they catch a cold?
We love Kids English Ivy to provide soothing relief of cough and cold symptoms! With herbs like English ivy, marshmallow, and European elder, it’s a comprehensive formula! Plus, it’s available in a delicious, kid-friendly, natural raspberry-flavoured syrup. With each great-tasting teaspoon, it offers the nutrients kids need this cold and flu season to get them back on track for success!
Probiotics are friendly bacteria that work to keep your gut healthy. Research has shown that certain probiotics, in combination with other nutrients, can contribute to a properly functioning immune system. Your gut and immune system may be more closely related than you think. As nearly 80% of your immune cells are found in your gut, it’s easy to see how good health begins here!
Several studies have even found an association between probiotic and nutrient supplementation and a reduced incidence of upper respiratory tract infection (URTI) symptoms.
We have a comprehensive line of probiotics specifically formulated for children. Our HMF Fit For School Probiotic includes a combination of research-driven probiotic strains and vitamin C that helps reduce incidence of URTI symptoms in children.
Our HMF Child and HMF Child + Multi Probiotics were also developed specifically for kids. HMF Child supports gastrointestinal health with a combination of six research-driven probiotic strains, while HMF Child + Multi offers a combination of four research-driven probiotic strains plus all 13 vitamins to further support good health. This means it has all eight B vitamins, along with vitamins A, C, D, E and K! Not only does it support gastrointestinal health, but it also promotes healthy growth and development; hair, skin and nails; strong bones; eyesight and night vision; immune function; and energy production.
All three of our probiotic formulas offer two different types of bacteria to support the health of your child’s large and small intestines. And they’re all available in great-tasting, natural black currant-flavoured chewable tablets. With a kid-approved taste and a research-based formula, these products are the perfect addition to any breakfast before school!
Getting ready for school can be a stressful endeavour. But with the right supplies, you can help your kids start back strong. Because when children are healthy, they’re on the right path to success!
