Ultivit™ Kids (60)
What can be more important that you child’s health?
Does he/she receive adequate vitamins and minerals every day?
Everyone knows that vitamins and minerals are essential for child’s proper growth and development. The researches show that nowadays lack of vitamins in children’s diet is not a seasonal phenomenon; they suffer from vitamin and mineral deficiencies all the year round.
One of the reasons – unhealthy changes in our diets. Children also often prefer “tasty” to “good for you”.
Some children are quite fussy to take green leafy vegetables and fruits thus compromising their intake of micronutrients from dietary sources.
The full genetic potential of the child for physical growth and mental development may be compromised due to subclinical deficiencies of micronutrients which are commonly referred to as "hidden hunger".
Micronutrients are required for the integrity and optimal functioning of the immune system. Children with subclinical deficiency of micronutrients are more vulnerable to develop frequent and more severe common day-to-day infections thus triggering a vicious cycle of undernutrition and recurrent infections.
A number of micronutrients are required for optimal physical growth and neuromotor development.
The first 3 years of life are most crucial and vulnerable to the hazards of undernutrition. All efforts should be made so that preschool children are given a balanced and nutritious home-based diet. However, it has been shown that it is not possible to meet 100% requirements of recommended dietary allowances (RDA’s) of micronutrients from dietary sources alone and most preschool children need administration of nutritional supplements to optimize their genetic potential for physical growth and mental development.
