Children’s Multivitamins

“I recommend parents talk with your child's doctor if they are concerned about whether their child is getting the recommended level of vitamins and minerals. A multivitamin might be helpful for your child if he or she has certain chronic diseases, food allergies, has failure to thrive, or is just a very picky eater,” began Diana Sourek, CNC, MS, Certified Gluten Practitioner, and manager, New Vitality Health Foods, Inc.

Sourek recommends choosing a multivitamin that is designed for your child's age group and provides at least the minimum 100 percent of the Daily Value of vitamins and minerals. In addition, keep multivitamins out of your child's reach and make it clear that they aren't candy.

New Vitality Health Foods, Inc. carries a variety of children’s multivitamins. They offer specially formulated children’s chewable, gummies, and easy-to-swallow coated multivitamins.    


One of the major building blocks of the brain, the omega-3 fatty acid docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) is critical for optimal brain health and function at all ages of life. Researchers are now finding that DHA provides brain-boosting benefits in infants and aging adults. DHA supplements can play a vital role in the treatment of certain health problems in children such as allergies, asthma, and attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder. Sourek explained, “An optimal intake of DHA is especially essential for pregnant and nursing mothers to ensure adequate brain development in their children. DHA helps promote nervous system development and optimal memory function.”

Some studies suggest that many toddlers and children don’t get the amount of DHA that many experts recommend. New Vitality Health Foods, Inc. offers several children’s formulated DHA parents can choose from. DHA supplements are often available in flavored “gummy” form to make the supplements palatable for children.

Immune Boosters

Vitamin D3: Sometimes called the “sunshine vitamin,” vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin in a family of compounds that includes vitamins D1, D2, and D3. It can affect as many as 2,000 genes in the body. Souek remarked, “The immune system defends the body from foreign, invading organisms, promoting protective immunity while maintaining tolerance to self. The implications of vitamin D deficiency on the immune system have become clearer in recent years and in the context of vitamin D deficiency, there appears to be an increased susceptibility to infection and a diathesis, in a genetically susceptible host to autoimmunity.” New Vitality Health Foods, Inc. offers a D3 Children’s Chewable from Natures Plus amongst others.

Colostrum: Available as a dietary supplement, colostrum is rich in antibacterial compounds and proteins known to stimulate the immune system. Proponents claim that colostrum offers a number of health benefits, including treatment of colitis, diarrhea, and infections. Colostrum can improve immunity, as well as enhance athletic performance.
