What makes USANIMALS better for your child’s health?

In an article written by Dr. Brian Dixon, Executive Director Health and Science Education, "Of Candies and syrups: There's a lot more to your child's vitamins" tackled more of how vitamins take-in by our kids during day time.  How this helps our child development in early childhood to teenagers.

According to the write-up, "Vitamins shouldn't be seen as a candy or a treat; your child's vitamins should be given with a meal. Do not make them a reward or a chore. Very few people truly understand how difficult it is to make a children's chewable vitamin that is complete, palatable, low in sugar, and without any artificial sweeteners or flavors. There are many companies that provide products with some of these characteristics, but very, very few have the whole package."

He also added that, "Growing children require higher amounts of magnesium, calcium and other minerals. Trace minerals like selenium, manganese, copper, chromium and molybdenum is needed as well but unfortunately is not found in most leading children's vitamins in the Philippines."

Children need a diet sufficient in macro and micronutrients. Macronutrients refer to carbohydrates, fats and protein needed by the body to provide the vital energy and body building elements for survival and development. 

Meanwhile, micronutrients are essential vitamins and minerals children needed in small amounts to support their physical and mental development. A child’s diet must also be sufficient to provide for the accumulation of stores of nutrients in preparation for the accelerated growth spurts of the teen years.

The lack of micronutrients such as iodine, vitamin A or iron in their daily diet may result in brain underdevelopment and poor performance in school, as well as the inability to cope with stress.
