Vitamins: More Essential to Kids Than Ever During the Rainy Season

Moms and dads! Know more about these products that could help boost your children's immune system!

Press Release:

As the blistering tropical heat changes abruptly to the rainy season, we need to be mindful of illness. Especially true with kids, the rainy season is also accompanied by a drastic shift in daily routines – from vacation mode, kids go back to school.

During the summer break, kids tend to be more sedentary, sleeping late, and waking up late as well. They also eat most, if not all, of their meals in the presence of a supervising adult. However, when school starts, the change is drastic. As they are not used to school schedules, during the first few school weeks, kids will tend to sleep later than they should, and have to be dragged out of bed to spend sleepy days in school. The shift from hot, supervised home cooked meals to unsupervised meals at school that are either cold meals from home or unappetizing cafeteria or concessionaire bought food, means that a lot of kids will be skipping lunch or substituting healthy food for junk food.

In those first few weeks of school, most kids become undernourished, sleep deprived and, to top it off, they can and often do play in the rain. This combination can and does often lead to tired, sleepy kids with somewhat vulnerable immune systems, a great combination for contracting viral or even bacterial infections.

One of the most effective ways to safeguard kids’ health as they troop back to school is to make sure they get the right amounts of vitamins and minerals. The water soluble vitamins (Vitamin B Complex, Vitamin C) are of particular importance as these are the ones that are most quickly consumed by active people and active kids. Vitamin B Complex is essential to proper brain function, and in bridging nutrition gaps, while Vitamin C is an unbeatable immune system booster.

“The challenge for parents is actually getting their kids to eat vegetables and fruits that are rich in Vitamins. Even getting kids to take vitamin supplements can be challenging especially those who are more finicky” said Joy Marie Bacay, Nutrilite Brand Manager.

Nutrilite Kiddie Pack which includes Kids Chewable Multivitamins and Minerals, Active 8 Beverage Crystals, Kids Chewable Concentrated Fruits & Vegetables and Acerola C, makes it easier for parents to ensure that their kids are properly nourished, especially during the abrupt changes brought about by the rainy and back-to-school seasons,” Bacay said.

The supplements are scientifically formulated with the right amounts of vitamins and minerals and other nutrients kids often miss out on due to lifestyle or eating preferences.

Nutrilite Kids Chewable Vitamins and Minerals are tablets that come in fun, soccer ball design. This supplement provides 11 vitamins, beta carotene, and 4 minerals. It also contains phytonutrients from Nutrilite Acerola concentrate and tropical fruit concentrates, for additional nutritional benefits. Acerola cherries are known to be one of the world’s richest sources of Vitamin C and this found in Acerola C.

Nutrilite Kids Chewable Concentrated Fruits and Vegetables are chewable tablets made sweet and tangy – a formula that kids like. One tablet delivers naturally sourced phytonutrients equivalent to five servings of fruits and vegetables. It is also packed with xylitol so it does not promote tooth decay.

Nutrilite Active 8 Beverages Crystals is a mix to replace softdrinks. Each glass provides seven B vitamins plus natural vitamin C.

With Nutrilite products, kids actually look forward to taking their vitamins.
