Why Vitamins Are Important for Your Kids
Vitamins! As parents, you’re told time and time again that they’re essential to the health and development of your children – but is it really true?
Turns out, it is.
As childhood obesity continues to rise – 17 percent of all children and adolescents in the United States classify as ‘obese’ – it’s evident that many of our children aren’t receiving proper nutrition on a day to day basis, causing their future health to be negatively impacted. Indeed, studies show that nutritional deficiencies in childhood have a direct impact on that child’s future issues with heart disease, diabetes, osteoporosis, cancer and obesity.
So what are your children missing out on? More often than not, it’s these:
- Vitamin D – It’s essential for the support of growing bones, teeth and muscles in children. And the alternative, if it’s in short supply? Children with Vitamin D deficiencies often experience stunted growth and muscular irregularities, as well as possible dental issues down the line.
- Vitamin A – Children reap the benefits of healthy skin and immune system support, as well as the healthy development of their eye site and cellular development through the proper intake of Vitamin A.
- B Vitamins – Especially crucial for children, the B Vitamin complex aids in cellular division and growth in children, as well as proper protein absorption for muscle growth, and nervous system function, too.
