As a parent, you naturally want nothing more than for your child to grow up healthy. Most parents place a great deal of importance on providing their children with healthy nutrition and adequate physical activity. However, children and teenagers can sometimes be picky eaters, which can lead parents to worry about whether their child is getting all the necessary nutrients. A dietary supplement for children may be a solution in such cases. Nowadays, there are many types of supplements tailored to your child's age and their corresponding nutritional needs. For instance, children's multivitamins often contain lower dosages of certain nutrients, but there are also specific vitamins available, such as vitamin K and D, as it's particularly important for young children to get enough of these vitamins. Ergomax offers various supplements designed to meet the needs of children, from multivitamins to probiotics, individual vitamins, and krill oil. You can find it all at Ergomax!

What nutrients does my young child need?
For growing children, vitamins, minerals, and omega-3 fatty acids are especially important. Children who have difficulty eating healthy foods, including vegetables, fruits, and fish, may risk not getting the recommended daily amount of nutrients. Extra vitamin D is recommended for babies and toddlers since bone and tooth development occurs at a rapid pace during this stage compared to later life stages. For some children, a multivitamin can be a good supplement, especially when you're not sure if your child is consuming enough healthy food daily. There are also probiotics designed specifically for children. Essential omega-3 fatty acids DHA and EPA are important for the normal visual development of infants up to 12 months, and iron is crucial for the normal cognitive development of children. These substances are naturally found in fatty fish but can also be supplemented through products like fish oil, algae oil, or cod liver oil.
What nutrients does my teenager need?
Similar to the early stages of life, a teenager's body is working overtime, but this time in the form of growth spurts and cognitive and hormonal development. Various nutrients are crucial during this phase. Iron supports red blood cell production and may be significant for girls who are starting to menstruate. B-vitamins and vitamin C help reduce fatigue and support energy levels. Vitamins A, B2, B3, B8, C, and zinc assist with skin health, and iron, iodine, and zinc are beneficial for concentration and memory. Vitamin D, calcium, and magnesium are important for bone and muscle health.
How can I identify a good supplement for my child?
Choosing a supplement for your child can be challenging due to the overwhelming options available. Since it's about your child's health, you want to ensure you choose a quality product. What should you consider? First and foremost, focus not so much on the brand but on the ingredients and their quantities. Each supplement has a unique composition, and it's essential that the product contains the nutrients recommended for your child based on guidelines. Additionally, consider the quality of the nutrients used. Are they natural, bioactive, or synthetic forms of vitamins? Furthermore, you'd want as few additives as possible, including sweeteners, colorants, and fillers. Never give your child a supplement or (multi)vitamin intended for adults unless it's specifically indicated as suitable for children. Adult supplement dosages are not tailored to a child's body.
