Nutrition for myself and my family is very important to me. Like many families we like to indulge in sweets and baked goods but we balance that out with a variety of fruits, vegetables and lean proteins. My boys love almost all foods and regularly ask for broccoli as a snack (I sure hope it continues!).
I also know that nutrition and immunity have been essential to kids’ overall health and wellness. As a busy mom, it’s so important to provide your kids with balanced snacks and meals, and keeping up their immune function can be a challenge (especially when they are at daycare/school).
A new survey commissioned by Bayer Healthcare Consumer Care shows that –
- 67 per cent of Canadian moms with kids 10 and under say healthy meals for their kids are often compromised because of busy and hectic schedules;
- 55 per cent of moms agreed their kids are getting enough vitamin A, while only 41 per cent said their kids are getting enough zinc. Both of these help to maintain healthy immune function;
- Almost two thirds of moms agreed that they have added other ingredients to vegetables to make them taste better.
As a kid I fondly remember taking my Flintstones Vitamins. My mom had to put them on a high shelf so I couldn’t reach them otherwise I would have probably ate the whole box! I love the taste, the shapes the way they reminded me of the cartoon (which I loved). For my boys, they aren’t familiar with the cartoon, but they love anything with a gummy consistency. Whether it be fruit gummies or vitamins they gobble them up!

it is important for children to take vitamins to supplement what might be lacking in their meals. kids can be picky eaters.
Sometimes they might not eat enough of a particular vitamin, so a little supplement can boost that intake for the day.

Nancy T says
Kids can be picky and don’t always eat everything you give them or what they should in a week. Vitamins help to give them some of the vitamins and minerals they should be getting.

Vitamins help in all parts of their growth!
to get their nutrition
tammy ta says
because they don’t eat healthy enough to get all of the vitamins through their food.
I think vitamins are important for kids and adults alike because although we try to get all the right foods with all the right nutrients there’s always something missing and vitamins can help that.
Katharine W says
They are important because kids don’t know to eat healthy and if they do, they might over eat one item (i.e. a bag of carrots) and thus imbalance in nutrients.
Jennifer L. says
I feel they’re important for my son because he doesn’t eat a lot of veggies.
Christy Martin says
Yes I think it is important for everyone to take vitmins. No ones weekly menu is perfect!
Because children don’t always eat a healthy diet, so they need a bit of vitamin and mineral supplementation.
