The Role of Kids' Health Supplements in Patient Care
Children can be notoriously picky eaters, making it hard for them to hit their daily goals for vitamins, minerals and essential nutrients. And, for children diagnosed with failure-to-thrive or medical conditions that may affect appetite or eating, such as celiac disease, cystic fibrosis or food allergies, taking a dietary supplement can help with filling nutrient gaps that they may not get from their diet alone.1
Afterall, kids have distinct and changing nutritional needs from birth through adolescence. Dietary supplements designed for children may offer helpful solutions to help close key nutrient gaps left by the diet. Not only do these supplements deliver essential vitamins and minerals that kids need to fuel their growing bodies, like calcium and vitamin D for strong teeth and bones, but they also help support a child’s developing immune system.*
Nestlé Health Science is on the front lines of nutritional research, developing kids’ health supplement solutions that meet children’s needs in tastes and formats they enjoy. Options include:
- delicious gummies and jellybeans with essential nutrients
- liquids in tasty flavors like strawberry and elderberry
- dissolvable to add to drinks or foods
- small or chewable tablets for quick and easy nutrition
Backed by research and designed to meet children’s nutritional needs and taste preferences, Nestlé Health Science’s supplements for kids give healthcare professionals options they can recommend with confidence.
