That's why Chewable Multivitamin for Kids is just the ticket for the extra nutritional insurance your kids need to stay healthy.
Why do I need all these vitamins and minerals?
Many people today don't consume the nutrients they need. Even if you eat whole organic foods, up to 50% of their nutritional value may be lost through the cooking and preparation process. Plus, soil nutrients are not what they were 50 or 100 years ago, so it is difficult to get all your nutrients from the food you eat. A good multivitamin can help you get some of these nutrients that are missing from your diet.
Why is there no iron in this supplement?
Clearly, most children require iron and can be deficient. However, iron can be toxic to children if taken in large amounts. Tragically, this happens every day as children's multivitamins taste so good. It's common for kids to consume an entire bottle at once, thinking they are candy.
Every day, children are rushed to the ER with iron overdose from this scenario and many of them die.
When it comes to iron for your children, there are three options according to Dr. Mercola:
- Good -- Find out if the supplement has iron. If it does, make sure the bottle has a child-proof cap and keep it away from your children.
- Better -- Make sure the supplement does NOT have iron in the form of ferrous sulfate. It should be in the form of carbonyl iron. There has never been a reported fatality from this type of iron. It is very safe.
- Best -- Provide your children with a multivitamin without any iron in it at all. Make sure your children obtain regular iron sources from their food.
Children, 4 years and up, as a dietary supplement take two (2) chewable tablets daily.
KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN.
