BENEFITS: For a child’s body to develop normally, essential nutrients need to be consumed each and every day. Children need vitamins & minerals for their normal growth and for the nourishment of their organs and bones. That can be quite a task, especially since many young children are picky about the foods they eat. A good way to be sure your children get the nutrients required to produce a healthy body and brain is to give them a daily multivitamin & mineral. Children are not simply little adults. When choosing a multivitamin, it is important to select one that is designed specifically for children. This will give your child the right amount of nutrients for their age and size. Studies have repeatedly shown that children who receive a daily multivitamin & mineral are healthier than those who don’t. These children don’t catch colds, flu or other infections as easily or as often. They also show children performing significantly better in reading speed, learning capacity, arithmetic examinations and attention scores. These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration. This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease.
