DescriptionHow to useIngredientsPro duct detailsPrecaution sMany children do not consume the daily recommended amount of fruit and vegetables according to a 2008 review of eating behaviour in children. This leads to an insufficient daily intake of micronutrients and fibre, both essential for normal and healthy development. Fussy eaters are especially prone to consume fewer amounts of foods rich in vitamins C and E, folate and fibre, most likely due to their lower consumption of fruit and vegetables - this may put them at risk of essential nutrient deficiency. Vitamins from the B group play a crucial role in the metabolic processes of all cells by helping with the metabolism of carbohydrates, proteins and fats to produce energy. The body requires many of the B vitamins to release energy from food. The human body cannot manufacture its own vitamin C, making it an essential and crucial nutrient to keep in balance. Vitamin C assists in the absorption of iron in particular, and has many other functions in the body. Vitamin D helps build and maintain healthy bones. Iodine is required for the normal functioning of the thyroid gland - iodine deficiency can affect up to 76% of Australian children, with lowered iodine levels possibly impairing cognitive development and IQ. Zinc helps support healthy immune function is involved in many aspects of the immune system. Like vitamin D zinc is necessary to support children's bone health. Zinc may also play an important role in children's cognitive function, as well as helping support their concentration and mental performance. Features and benefits: No artificial sweeteners.
