Health Insurance For Your Growing Child
For many parents, the need for their children to take supplementation is obvious. Fast food, a mainstay for so many children, simply does not provide the nutrition that young people need. While supplements cannot replace a good diet, Pedia Balance, formulated for children, lowers the health risks associated with a poor diet.
Many children's multi-vitamin/mineral formulas contain only a few essential nutrients, high levels of refined sugar and have poor bioavailability. Pedia Balance is a comprehensive formula with 24 bioavailable nutrients in a chewable wafer using a small amount of Sucanat® (natural sugar cane juice) to create a unique and pleasing flavor. Pedia Balance is designed to be able to handle the needs of your child as they progress from early childhood to adolescence.]
Most Multivitamins Leave Your Child Deficient
A recent study1 that analyzed more than 7,000 kids found a significant deficiency in calcium and vitamin D in most children between two and eight years of age in the study. Unfortunately, the study group remained lacking in calcium and vitamin D despite current multivitamin use.This study provides important insight for parents because over 75% of the multivitamins on the market are missing calcium, vitamin D or both. Pedia Balance contains both of these nutrients in an ample dose to support the needs of your child.
The same study evaluated children as they reach adolescence and found children between ages nine and eighteen are more likely to have insufficient intake of nutrients like magnesium, copper, vitamin A, vitamin C and vitamin E. All these key vitamins and minerals are found in the Pedia Balance in the correct ratios to maximize the health of your child.
