    Health Notes

    Are Your Children Getting the Vitamins They Need?

    Are Your Children Getting the Vitamins They Need?
    Are Your Children Getting the Vitamins They Need?: Main Image
    Younger children may be getting enough nutrients from diet alone
    Before you serve up the gummy vitamins, chew on this: some children may not be getting the nutrients they need most from their multivitamins, some may be getting too much of certain nutrients, and others may not need a multivitamin at all.

    Do they really need a children's vitamin?

    Eating a healthy diet goes a long way towards preventing nutritional deficiencies, but how much do we really know about which nutrients kids are getting enough of in their everyday diets and which ones we need to supplement?

    That's the question that researchers from institutions including Tufts University and the National Institutes of Health attempted to answer in a study published in the Journal of Pediatrics.

    The study looked at the diets and supplement use of 7,250 children between 2 and 18 years old to see if taking supplements helped fill in nutritional gaps, or if it led to excess intake of certain nutrients in kids who already had good diets.

    Following are the percentages of children who took dietary supplements:

    • 23% of 2- to 8-year-olds
    • 23% of 9- to 13-year-olds
    • 26% of 14- to 18-year-olds

    Here's what the study showed:

    • Where diet worked: Most of the younger children got plenty of phosphorus, copper, selenium, folate, and vitamins B6 and B12 from diet alone.
    • Where supplements helped: Dietary supplements helped fill in nutritional gaps (especially of magnesium, phosphorus, and vitamins A, C, and E) among older children. The prevalence of inadequate intake of all of the nutrients examined (except iron and phosphorus) was significantly lower among children who took supplements. There was a significantly higher prevalence of inadequate calcium and vitamins A, C, D, and E intake across all age groups among children who didn't take supplements. Most of the children between 2- and 8-years-old who didn't take supplements didn't meet the recommended intake for calcium and vitamins D and E.
    • Where supplements didn't help: Even among children who did take supplements, more than one third didn't get enough calcium or vitamin D. Children who took supplements were more likely to have intakes above the tolerable upper intake level (UL) of iron, zinc, folic acid, and vitamins A and C. Younger children were also more likely to have intakes above the UL for copper and selenium.

    Still wondering what to do?

    The take-home message from this study is that younger children may be getting enough of most nutrients from diet alone, but may benefit from boosting intake of certain nutrients, like calcium and vitamins D and E. Older children might benefit from taking a multivitamin-mineral supplement, and making sure that they get enough calcium and vitamin D. "These findings may have implications for reformulating dietary supplements for children," the authors commented.

          Kids are tough to get to eat, much less all the food groups. This one pill is a solution for most. Our kids love the chewables, and get the vitums they need.

              Comments about Hero Nutritionals™ Yummi Bears®:

              At age 6 my daughter started having bowel problems,constant stomach pain, calls from the school nurse. A friend rec. these vitamins. They worked great for her 9 yr old who had the same problems. They worked almost immed. She no longer has gas pain (from stool staying in there) and feels generally good. They taste so good. The supply went quicker than my husband thought until I spilled the beans that I slip one or two at a time occasionally! The are gummy,melt in your mouth! I keep it in my mouth as long as it will stay. She never forgets to take it. Its the highlight of her morning. Little pricey compared to supermarkets but well welll worth the price
