Introduction to Children’s Nutrition

Healthy children are likely to grow into healthy adults, so laying down good nutritional foundations in childhood can have lifelong benefits. Our extensive range of high quality nutritional supplements covers the key areas that underpin child development from neonatal nutrition, promoting healthy immunity, general nutritional support and specific formulations to support complex needs.

Formulated by our Clinical Nutrition team in conjunction with leading practitioners specifically for children, the range is free from artificial colours, sweeteners and flavours and come in either liquids or powders making them convenient and easy to take.

For a straight, easy, simple live bacteria product for children, then take a look at Children’s Strawberry or Banana BioAcidophilus powder. They both contain the clinically reached LAB4 strains of bacteria with a guaranteed 2 billion potency until end of shelf life. The natural fruit flavoured powders are delicious and easy to use – try sprinkling on to breakfast in the morning, or adding to a smoothie any time of day. What’s more, they’re dairy free and suitable from 6 months of age.

For a multivitamin that will see children through from 6 months to 14 years of age, Children’s Complete Complex is formulated especially to provide the full spectrum of nutrients needed as they grow and develop, including vitamin D, calcium, iron and zinc. It is presented in a tasty freeze dried banana base and can be mixed into milk/yogurt or sprinkled onto food.

The benefits of vitamin D are well documented now, including for children. Children’s BioMulsion® D provides 300iu (7.5mcg) of vitamin D3 in a delicious, natural lemon flavoured liquid. The liquid has been emulsified, making it optimally absorbed and is really easy to take – just three drops directly in to the mouth (it tastes so good, children will love to take it!), or mixed in to drinks.

Children’s Elderberry Complex is a delicious liquid containing elderberry concentrate with zinc and vitamin C and is great not only for those back to school times, but all year round! It is highly concentrated and lasts for 30 days at the recommended dose, making it great value for money too! Suitable from 3 years of age.

For more specialist support Children’s Mindlinx®Multinutrient powder is a unique, carefully crafted multivitamin formula with a high concentration of B vitamins, magnesium and zinc, in a tasty, easy to take, natural apricot flavoured powder. Suitable from 3 years of age, it is ideal to take alongside Children’s Mindlinx® Powder - a high potency live bacteria supplement with added glutamine, containing 16 billion of the clinically researched LAB4 strains of bacteria. It is dairy-free and suitable from 2 years of age.

Children's Range

And for babies...

The Department of Health recommends that all children aged 6 months to 5 years of age are given vitamin supplements containing vitamins A, C and D every day. Baby A, C, D Plus Drops contains these key nutrients at the levels suitable for babies from one month. The easy to take liquid can be mixed with milk, water or dropped directly in to the mouth.

Also for babies we have Baby Infantis Powder which contains Bifidobacteria, a live bacteria (found in breast milk) and is suitable for children of all ages but most appropriate to infants prior to weaning. It contains four billion live bacteria per daily dose and can easily be mixed into a paste with sterile water or added to soft food for consumption. It’s also dairy-free.
