Vitamins and minerals can be just as essential as uniform and pens when it comes to preparing for the new school year. Make sure they're prepared for the term time.
Vitamins Your Child Needs for Going to School
Vitamin D not only supports bone growth but also the maintenance of a healthy immune system, however it is estimated that 1 in 6 children suffer from low levels, with deficiency being linked to coughs, colds and tiredness.
Government guidelines now recommend that everyone in the UK takes a vitamin D supplement, especially mums-to-be and infants and young children under five. This is because you’ll struggle to get your recommended daily allowance from sunshine or diet alone.
Concentration and focus is fundamental for children as they go back to school. Extended periods of listening, learning and completing classwork means it is vital your child can stay engaged and on task.
Contributing to normal healthy red blood cells, vitamin B12 not only combats tiredness and fatigue, it also supports normal psychological functions aiding memory and concentration levels.
Our Boost B12 Oral Spray is suitable from 3 years and above.
A poor night's sleep can mean cause irritability, hyperactivity and an inability to concentrate, all leading to poor performance in the classroom.
As a natural muscle relaxant magnesium can help relax the body in preparation for sleep. Our Magnesium Sleep Lotion Junior is combined with chamomile and lavender to help slow sensory activity, creating a soothing and calming effect to aid a deeper sleep cycle.
