Kids seem to grow faster in the summer. So now, as you’re taking them out for back-to-school shopping, you may notice that last year’s clothes and shoes may not just be out of style—they may no longer fit.
Growing bones need a variety of vitamins and minerals, of which calcium is among the most important. Sufficient calcium intake is important at any age, but it’s particularly crucial during childhood, when kids rely on good nutrition for rapid physical growth and development. An adequate supply of calcium in the body maintains strong bones and teeth, but most diets simply don’t provide enough. Plus, day-to-day stress and pollution can deplete calcium levels, further increasing the risk of a deficiency.
The good news is that a high quality supplement can make a big difference in your child’s health, by providing them with the essential nutrients needed to improve bone density. Sisu U-CubesTM Calcium & D3 gummies can help in the development and maintenance of bones and teeth. In addition to calcium, U-CubesTM are a great source of vitamin D, which is essential to calcium absorption and helps support bone growth. These great-tasting gummies are specially made for children and contain all-natural flavours and colours.
To further support your child’s health, you should also consider adding a vitamin C supplement. Vitamin C is essential for collagen formation (the building block of many tissues); it’s also involved in the development of bones, teeth and cartilage. SISU Kids’ Ester-C Chewables are a great source of this valuable nutrient. These chewables contain Ester-C, a unique form of vitamin C that’s easier on the stomach than regular ascorbic acid, making it ideal for kids. Or, as an alternative to chewable vitamins, try SISU Ester-C Kid Stiks, a convenient powder that mixes into water to form a nourishing, non-effervescent drink.
As your child heads back to school, make sure you’re providing them with the nutrients their growing bodies need. A well-nourished body will go a long way toward helping a child reach their full potential.
