Back-to-school season is here, and there’s no better time to start a supplement routine for your kids. From chewable gummies to liquid and powder forms, our supplement recommendations are natural, safe, and a great way to introduce your kids to healthy habits. Here are our top 4 essential daily supplements for kids to achieve optimal wellness and growth:
1. Vitamin D
Did you know that it takes 20 minutes of unprotected sun exposure to the majority of the body at least 3 days a week (every month of the year) to generate adequate vitamin D? Kids aren’t generally getting that much sun exposure throughout the year, so it’s important to supplement for optimal health, especially when outdoor summer fun is over. Vitamin D is key for healthy bones and teeth, as well as assisting in calcium absorption and helping the immune system function. Vitamin D3 gummies come in all-natural fruit flavors like mango, peach, and strawberry. Liquid D3 Kids is very convenient, with one drop containing 400 IU for easy absorption into the bloodstream.
To support gut and immune health, we recommend probiotic daily supplements for children. These live bacteria maintain a healthy gut biome and ensure proper digestion. A chewable tablet option, PRO-Kids ENT contains targeted oral probiotic strains promoting dental health and is designed for ear, nose, and throat support. Pure-Biotic Children's Chewable is another great choice for gastrointestinal, immune, and oral support. The naturally flavored tablets provide potent strains for maximum benefits.
Make sure your kids are getting cognitive support during peak developmental age with an Omega-3 supplement. Omegas are crucial for brain and nervous system development, in addition to immune function. We only recommend Omegas made from the best sources of purified fish oil and high concentrations for maximum benefits. Children’s DHA gummies come in flavors your kids will love, without sugar, artificial colorings, and preservatives. Another form of Omega-3s is Children’s DHA liquid, which only requires a half-teaspoon serving.
One of the best daily supplements you can incorporate into your child’s wellness routine is a multivitamin. The Kids Complete Multivitamin contains essential vitamins and minerals, like the B vitamins and Vitamins C and D, as well as zinc and Omega-3s. Plus, this supplement is free from allergens and no high-fructose corn syrup. Super Kids Multi Chews is also formulated for growing kids and includes a large list of key nutrients like Vitamins A, B, C, D, E, and K, iron, potassium, and magnesium. Its unique formulation is gentle and gut-friendly for improved stability and tolerance.
