What dietary shortfalls does this product address?
Vitamin D is a large nutrient shortfall for kids of all ages. About 80% of American children ages 2–8 and 85% ages 9–13 don’t get enough of this critical growth and development nutrient for bones and teeth. Up to 50% of kids in the US also don’t get enough calcium.
Where do we normally get this product from?
You need a combo of sunshine, dairy, and dark leafy greens to get these nutrients in every day (and possibly a supplement to fill in the gaps). Sunlight provides the main source of our vitamin D requirements (without sunscreen). A few foods naturally contain vitamin D as well, such as certain fatty fish, fish liver oils, and egg yolks. Calcium is found in dairy products like yogurt, milk, cheddar cheese, as well as green leafy vegetables and soybeans. Vitamin K can be found primarily in dark leafy greens such as kale, spinach, or broccoli. Vitamin K is found in smaller amounts in liver, fish, meat and eggs
Who might need to take this product?
Kids who spend a lot of time indoors, don’t get much sun exposure, or live in a cloudier climate. Plus, kids who’d rather not eat their leafy greens or can’t consume a lot of dairy.
