Health Tips & Info : What Types of Kids Need to Take Vitamins?

Almost all kids but especially these kids: 

• Kids who don’t get healthy, nutritious meals on a regular basis 

• Kids who eat a lot of processed foods like macaroni and cheese 

• Kids who are very picky about what they will and won’t eat 

• Kids who have medical conditions that restrict the foods they can eat, like digestive problems 

• Kids who are on medications 

• Very active kids 

• Kids who play competitive sports. 

• Vegetarian kids – Kids do not get enough vitamins and nutrients from a vegetarian diet. It’s very important to supplement your child’s diet if you feed your child as a vegetarian 

• Kids who drink sodas regularly – carbonated sodas and beverages will leech the vitamins and minerals right out of children’s’ bodies, which is one more reason you shouldn’t give kids soda.
