Vitamins and minerals are very important for your child to feel as well as possible. As long as the child eats a varied diet with good food, it is usually enough to cover the need. But it is not always so easy to be sure what vitamins the children are getting from diet alone, especially if the food you cook is often replaced with something else.

D drops for small children

The Swedish Food Agency recommends giving D-drops to children under 2 years of age. Some children can stop taking them after 2 years, while other children need to continue. How often you eat oily fish or spend time outdoors also plays a role.

When is extra vitamin D and Omega-3 appropriate for children?

Some nutrients are more difficult to get the right amount of than others. You should eat quite a lot of omega-3 in order for it to be sufficient. Salmon contains 7 times as much omega-3 as, for example, yogurt. In some cases, extra vitamin D and Omega-3 may be good for your child, for example if:

  • The child is under 5 years old and has a darker complexion
  • If the child eats fatty fish less often than 2-3 times a week
  • Get less sunlight than 15 minutes 2-3 times a week during the summer

Through nutritional supplements such as A+ Kids Multi Gummies, your (or your) child gets vitamins in a simple and fun way. Above all, they get the nutrients needed for a well-functioning immune system.

Children who eat a vegetarian or vegan diet

If your child eats dairy products, eggs and cheese but not fish, then vitamin D and Omega-3 can be a good supplement. However, if the child is eating an all-vegan diet, it is always good to consult with the BVC to ensure that the child is getting the nutrients it needs, especially as it grows and develops. Supplementation of iron, vitamin D and B12, among other things, is usually needed.

Having children is wonderful, but sometimes you can run out of ideas in the kitchen. Cooking for a child can be more difficult than you think. Yesterday's favorite food can be a thing of the past and it is not always so easy to keep up with the changes. A good tip is to prepare food in a form that the child likes, but replace the ingredients with healthier alternatives.
