It’s a well-known fact that we all need vitamins to function properly. They allow our body to perform its regular functions, but we can’t produce them on our own, so we need a little help getting them. The standard way of getting your vitamins is through food, but we often can’t satisfy the need for vitamins with our diet.
The best way to get exactly those vitamins that you’re missing is by taking food supplements. You can choose from singular vitamins or multivitamin form, depending on what you’re missing. Vitamin supplements in pill or liquid form aren’t suitable for everyone, especially for those that need them the most – children! Luckily, there’s a great alternative to vitamin supplements that is especially suitable for your kids: vitamin gummies.
Are vitamin gummies healthy for children?
Vitamin gummies, unlike gummy candy, don’t have to be bad for the teeth. It all depends on the ingredients. A lot of gummies are made with gelatine and added refined sugar – those kinds can cause cavities and destroy plaque. Luckily, not all have the same recipe.
There are vegan alternatives that use pectin instead of gelatine, and add no refined sugars, artificial flavors, or colors, so those vitamin gummies won’t do your child’s teeth any harm. As well as being sugar-free, they’re also gluten-free and suited for people with allergies.
What should I keep in mind when getting vitamin gummies?
Since the look, taste, and flavor of gummy vitamins are so appealing to children, they might not realize that they’re more medicine than candy. This is why it is the parent’s responsibility to ensure that they are taking the proper amount and not to allow them to eat vitamin gummies as candy.
Also, keep in mind that there are different options depending on which vitamins your child needs. Some multivitamins contain up to eight different vitamins, while others combine a vitamin with an element in its absence, such as iron and vitamin C gummy. Some options are even made with a particular task in mind, such as bone, muscle and teeth health or a combination of hair and nail health for women.
If you combine gummy vitamins with a balanced diet, you can rest assured that your kid is getting all the necessary nutrients while also avoiding tears over swallowing pills or drinking terrible syrups. Who knows, maybe you’ll grow to love the gummies too!
What makes children love vitamin gummies?
Vitamin gummies have a jelly-like substance, similar to gummy candy. Thanks to this, children won’t view it as medicine, but rather as a treat, especially if they’re already used to the gummy texture. A lot of kids, especially younger ones, can’t swallow pills and won’t drink anything that doesn’t taste good. That’s the main reason why vitamin gummies are the best option for making sure your children get a good vitamin intake.
Like candy, vitamin gummies come in many different flavors. This allows a range of choices that suit every child’s preferences. Because of their tastiness, children will be glad to take vitamin gummies and might even view them as a treat.
