Are Multivitamins Necessary For Punta Gorda Kids?
Hello Punta Gorda! Welcome to today’s Punta Gorda children’s nutrition post. I am Lynette Henk, and I promote children’s health in Punta Gorda and the 33983 zip code area.
Today’s post discusses children’s vitamins
. Many Punta Gorda parents give their kids a chewable or liquid multivitamin. We all know that it is essential for Punta Gorda kids to get sufficient amounts of vitamins and minerals and we often give them a pill to fill in nutritional gaps, just in case. Are multivitamins necessary for Punta Gorda kids?
I have found that Punta Gorda pediatricians have varying opinions about this issue. Some Sarasota children’s doctors recommend parents give their children vitamins in pill form or at least don’t discourage it.
More importantly, Punta Gorda pediatricians urge parents to feed their children a variety of nutritious foods, presumably because vitamins and minerals in foods are better absorbed.
The Mayo Clinic website offers the following advice for Punta Gorda parents who give their children a multivitamin:1
Make sure the multivitamin is designed for your child’s age group.
Choose one that provides 100 percent of the daily value (DV) for all vitamins and minerals.
Store multivitamins out of your child’s reach and make it clear that they are not candy.
Don’t use multivitamins as a replacement for proper nutrition.1
I sell a great-tasting healthy snack packed with vitamins, minerals, fiber, and other good stuff for kids. To order, contact me today.
