Zita West My Baba – Children’s Multivitamin and Probiotic Berry Flavour Powder
A clever combination of important vitamins, minerals and friendly microflora specifically formulated for children aged 12 months to 12 years. Take once a day, mixed with water, milk or juice or sprinkled onto yogurt or cereal.
With busy schedules, fussy eaters and processed foods, children often do not meet all of their recommended daily value of nutrients. In fact, figures from the latest National Diet and Nutrition Survey shows that on average from food sources alone, toddlers are only achieving one quarter of recommended levels of vitamin D. This has a significant role in the regulation of the immune system and can reduce the risk of certain bacterial and viral infections.
However, any supplement is only as good as a child’s willingness to take it and parents know that children can be finicky about the taste no matter how nutritious. This is why the multibiotic formula comes in a delicious powder form and contains a mix of vitamins, minerals and probiotics, with a natural strawberry flavour.
New research highlights the benefit of giving kids a bit of a nutritional boost. With busy schedules, fussy eaters and processed foods, children often don’t meet all of their recommended daily value of nutrients. In fact, figures from the latest National Diet and Nutrition Survey show that on average, from food sources alone, toddlers are only achieving one quarter of recommended levels of Vitamin D, which has a significant role in the regulation of the immune system.
