Unlike most animals on planet Earth, humans don’t make their own vitamin C. We have to get our vitamin C from foods like cantaloupe, oranges, or broccoli. If your little ones are picky eaters and don’t eat very many fruits or vegetables, they might not be getting enough vitamin C. In fact, when they eat cookies, ice cream, cake, or pie their bodies might not be absorbing enough of this important nutrient. That’s because sugar blocks the absorption of vitamin C. For an energetic and active child, or one that prefers sweets over fruits and vegetables, supplementing with vitamin C ensures that your child will get enough of this vitamin and all of its health benefits.*
An easy way to increase your child’s vitamin C intake is through chewable vitamin c. It’s ideal for children who don’t like to swallow pills, and it comes in a delicious natural cherry flavor, so even the pickiest of eaters will enjoy it.
