Everyday Essentials for Children
By BioCare 6 months ago 6354 Views

We now know the true importance of daily nutrition to support overall health and wellbeing for us adults, and this goes for the little ones too! Just as we need to ensure our bodies are taking in all of the essential nutrients to thrive, this is the same for our children, and laying down good nutritional foundations in childhood can have lifelong benefits.

Our extensive range of advanced, effective nutritional supplements for children covers the key areas that underpin child development from neonatal nutrition, promoting healthy immunity, bone health and cognition.

We pride ourselves on the quality of our children’s range, formulated by our Clinical Nutrition team in conjunction with leading practitioners to provide the highest standard of products, suitable for all ages, from babies to teenagers. Free from artificial colours and flavours, in liquid or powder forms for convenience and flexible dosing options.

Introducing our new recyclable packaging
At BioCare, we care about health – of our customers, ourselves and our environment. We are committed to improving our sustainability efforts, and have been working behind the scenes for some time now on initiatives such as changing our plastic packaging, using more recyclable materials and less packaging overall in deliveries. We are now delighted to tell you that the first of our new recyclable glass packaging is in, with a new brand look too! We are, of course, in the process of moving the entire range into the new packaging, but with over 200 products, they’ll gradually come into stock. We’re really excited about this new journey, and hope you are too.
