Every parent wants the best for their child’s health, and eating a healthy, well-balanced diet is so important for growth and development. But let’s be honest…how many of our kids actually do that every day, if ever?

Getting your child to regularly clean their plate of nutrient-rich foods can be a challenge. And if you have a picky eater on your hands, it’s downright impossible!

Regardless of your child’s eating habits, a multivitamin is a tried and true way to make sure they’re getting enough of the essential vitamins and minerals they need every day. Not convinced? Here are five reasons kids can benefit from taking a multivitamin from Sundown® Naturals Kids on a daily basis:

  1. Gaps be gone! A multivitamin supplement is just that – a way to “supplement” your child’s diet and fill any potential nutritional gaps. A nutritional gap is a shortage of any one vitamin or mineral, and can affect optimal health. All types of eaters, from the pickiest of the picky to the bottomless pits may have some nutritional gaps, and can benefit from the daily nutrition provided by a multivitamin.*
  2. Strong bones & bright smiles. Multivitamins like ours that contain calcium and vitamin D provide kids with the primary mineral (calcium) needed for strong bones and pearly whites, and an essential vitamin (D) to help their growing bodies absorb the calcium.* Getting enough of this vitamin-mineral combination is especially essential during early childhood and adolescence, when most of a person’s bone mass is formed.
  3. Healthy, happy kids. Vitamins like A, C, D and E are staples in our children’s multis, and each of them is so important for supporting immune health all year long.* Multivitamins can contribute to antioxidant health, and help keep your child’s immune system healthy and fortified.* As a parent, what more could you ask for?
  4. Fuel for play. Kids need energy from the right sources to fuel their active days – and not the temporary “energy” that comes from tons of sugar (and the inevitable crash that follows). Our kids multivitamins are rich in B vitamins can help them convert food into energy,* and have 33% less sugar than the leading brand.** Just like adults, growing children need to replenish their supply of B vitamins daily, so they can support energy metabolism and enjoy their busy, fun-filled days to the fullest.*
  5. Establishes healthy habits early. The regular replenishment of vitamins and minerals is essential to health and vitality, and this is especially true in the growing, changing-every-day bodies of children.* Kids who grow up taking their vitamins every day are much more likely to continue this healthy habit into adulthood.
