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.
