Today’s children lead very active lives and growing up demands a lot from their bodies and their minds! Vitamins are crucial to supporting both their mental and physical development.
Growth is especially rapid during the first 12 years of a child's life. Continuous development means that children have a high nutrient requirement compared to their body size. Meeting those nutritional requirements can be a challenge, especially if you have fussy eaters!
While children usually grow out of fussy eating, in the meantime, vitamins are crucial to supporting both their mental and physical development.
