Getting a yearly flu shot, teaching good hand washing techniques and ‘cough etiquette’ is important but unfortunately won’t help avoid other health troubles or deficiencies.

Some children at risk may need a supplement.

Extra vitamins and minerals can help boost their immunity.

Nevertheless, strive for a well-rounded diet to ensure your child meets the dairy recommended vitamin and mineral intakes.

 

HOW TO KEEP YOUR CHILDREN HEALTHY DURING WINTER

 

Basically, discuss supplements with your child’s health care provider before giving them to your child.

Children who have a well-balanced diet usually do not need a vitamin or mineral supplement.

Those who follow vegetarian or vegan diets may need vitamin B12. Those who have poor appetite, drink a lot of sweet beverages, take certain medications or have chronic medical conditions that interfere with intake may need a supplement.

A probiotic supplement will help protect the digestive tracts and shield from invading viruses.

Vitamin D and zinc make wonders on the immune system.

Elderberry and astragalus herbs prevent recurrent respiratory tract infections.

Honey and bees products can make great energetic and physiological investments in immunity.

Remember they should not be given to children under 1 year of age, until their digestive system is mature.

 

In the alphabet soup of vitamins and minerals, a few stand out as critical for growing kids.

Vitamin A promotes normal growth and development; tissue and bone repair; healthy skin, eyes and immune responses.

Vitamin Bs aid metabolism, energy production, healthy circulatory and nervous systems, bone and tooth formation and help the body absorb calcium which helps build strong bones. Iron is essential to healthy red blood cells and especially for girls once they begin to menstruate.

Large doses of vitamins aren’t a good idea for children. They may cause nausea, headaches and diarrhea.

 

If you feel your child may need a supplement, consult your doctor.

Last but not least, stick to an early bedtime. Kids have to go to bed early to have any chance of fighting off viruses.

Some parents feel that applying Thieves oil on their children’s bodies or diffusing it in their room in an essential oil humidifier helps fight off colds.

 

DOES MY CHILD NEED A SUPPLEMENT?

 

For some children, supplementation may be important, particularly if your family’s dietary practices limit the food groups available to him.

Besides, childhood is a critical time for growth and brain development so particular vitamins and supplements may be recommended.

Using them to treat anxiety may be part of the puzzle.

Lavender, lemon balm and chamomile makes excellent herbal teas with calming properties. Passionflower is commonly used for sleep issues. Omega 3 fatty acids have tremendous mental health benefits. Magnesium, flax and sesame may reduce anxiety and are easy to include in your child’s diet.

There are many supplements that aren’t vitamins or minerals that parents can give their kids, for instance fibers or probiotics in case they suffer constipation and stomach pains.

 

Selecting which vitamin product might be the best fit for your family’s needs depends mainly on their age and how easily they take a medication.

Gummies have great flavours, easy to take and the lolly aspect might make it easier sell to a fussy child.

Tablets are easy to take once they are older.

Liquids are easy to administer to all age groups and you can disguise it by putting it into water or juice.

While there are circumstances when supplements may be needed, getting vitamins and minerals through food and drink should be the goal for growing children.

If you feel your child may need a supplement, consult your health provider.
