Nourishing Your Kids: Do You Really Need Multivitamins?

family health family nutrition health lifestyle May 31, 2024

As parents, we're often concerned about our children's nutrient intake. Despite my commitment to a nutrient-dense, low-inflammation diet that keeps me vibrant, my kids don’t always follow my lead. It's natural to worry about whether they are getting the essential vitamins and minerals they need to grow and thrive.

Many commercial multivitamins fall short, lacking effective doses of key nutrients like Vitamin D, Iron, and Zinc. After much frustration with store-bought options, I decided to create my own multivitamin formula that’s not only highly absorbable and potent but also tasty enough for my kids to enjoy willingly.

My Ultimate Kids' Multivitamin Recipe

Here’s the concoction that has been a game-changer for us:

  • Spectrum Needs Multivitamin Powder
  • Akesi Probiotic Cordial
  • Maltofer Iron Drops
  • Detoxadine Iodine Drops

I understand that minerals can compete for absorption, so ideally, Zinc and Iron should be taken separately. However, the practical side of parenting means I sometimes relax these rules because:

  1. They Drink It! Ensuring they actually consume the vitamins is a win.
  2. Hidden Nutrition I sneak liver into meatballs for an extra nutrient boost.
  3. Daily Staples They eat eggs daily, which are nutrient powerhouses.

The taste of Akesi probiotic cordial is a hit with my kids. It’s also been a lifesaver for disguising medicines when they’re sick.

Key Points to Remember

  • Whole Foods First: Always prioritize nutrient-dense whole foods. This remains crucial even if you're supplementing with vitamins.
  • Don’t Give Up on Their Taste Profiles: Keep offering a variety of healthy foods. Kids' tastes can change, and persistence often pays off.
  • Trust and Patience: Sometimes, the biggest dietary wins happen when you least expect them.
