A friend of mine recently asked me what vitamins I give to my children because she noticed that my daughter is looking “healthier” these days. My little girl has indeed gained more weight (and height, too) and that’s primarily because both of my children have not been getting sick for a long time already. In fact, their last visit to their Pediatrician prior to their recent annual well child check-up before school started was almost a year ago. And in their well child check-up, I was glad that the results for both children were good - that their weight is within average (not over or under weight) and their height is in the upper percentile. My daughter is quite a picky eater; therefore, she needs nutritional support for health and overall well-being. My children are no longer taking any synthetic vitamins and supplements but instead I give them multi-vitamins and mineral supplement from whole food concentrates.
Nature’s Plus Source of Life Animal Parade is an award-winning children’s supplement from whole food concentrates that is gluten-free, vegetarian and hypo-allergenic. Although Animal Parade also comes in chewable tablet form, my daughter likes the luscious Tropical Berry flavor of the Animal Parade Liquid. Animal Parade Liquid provides a complete spectrum of essential vitamins, including 100% of the Daily Value (DV) for most vitamins, including Vitamins C and B. It also provides a broad range of healthful essential minerals, including calcium, zinc, iodine, copper and manganese. And what I like most about it is that it comes from whole food concentrates, which include pineapple, apple, lemon bioflavonoids, rose hips, mango fruit, West Indian cherry, papaya fruit, whole brown rice, broccoli, carrot, and spinach. So at least I know my child is getting a comprehensive nutritional support that I am looking for that is natural and free from artificial coloring and sweeteners. And since Animal Parade is hypoallergenic, it is also free from common allergens like yeast, wheat, corn, soy and milk.
And you might ask where I get my supply of this imported multi-vitamin and mineral supplement? No less from my favorite health store, Healthy Options, which not only carries many natural-sourced vitamin and mineral supplement brands for children and adults but also carries a variety of health products from personal care, health supplements, natural medicines, healthy foods and drinks, and health-related books/reference materials. You might want to drop by in any of their branches near you and see for yourself a wide variety of choices for your health and well-being that are natural, organic and additives-free.
