A new school year means a new routine! Here we will help you set your family up for new healthy habits to ensure that your kids have the best start to the new school season. We’ve laid out some vitamins and supplements to support your child’s immune system and overall health, as well as some essential products you can slip right in your child’s backpack before they head out for the day.
First things first, a multivitamin! Children’s multivitamins help to support optimal health, as some kids may not be getting all of their vitamins and nutrients. Those children with dietary restrictions (or those who are just picky eaters) would benefit from a daily multivitamin to ensure that they are filling any potential nutritional gaps.
