Supplements Help Keep Kids Healthy
This holiday season, give your child the gift of healthy supplements!
In addition to a diet of whole foods, a daily multivitamin/mineral supports your child’s growth and development.
It’s “insurance to prevent nutrient deficiencies,” says Elson M. Haas, MD. It supports learning and mood too.
Research suggests that kids who take a multi accomplish school tasks more quickly and concentrate longer than kids taking a placebo.
Zinc, for example, may support cognition. One study found that students given 20 milligrams daily scored higher on tests of visual memory, word recognition, and sustained attention than children who didn’t get a supplement.
