I have two really healthy girls. I contribute this to several things. Number one, God has blessed my family with health at this time. Two, I breast fed them both for a year each. I have nothing but encouraging words to say about nursing. It’s a sacrifice but the peace of mind is worth it. I was lucky my body cooperated. Number three, they get their fair share of sugar and junk but I only give them water to drink and I cram them full of organic veggies! Number four, I avoid antibiotics like the plague. If we get something that might need an antibiotic, a clove of garlic crushed in a spoonful of honey has always avoided a doctor’s visit. Number five, I have them on supplements.
My girls take Vitamin D in their water every morning and fish oil, probiotic and a multivitamin each morning after breakfast. The probiotic and multivitamin are by Garden of Life (I take their multivitamin for women). The vitamin D is by D Drops and the fish oil is by Nordic Naturals. You can find all of them on Amazon!
My Suggested Supplements for Kids:
- Raw Multivitamin (find them HERE)
- Fish Oils (omega 3’s) (find them HERE)
- Vitamin D (find them HERE)
- Probiotics (find them HERE)
I chose these 4 supplements because I believe they promote a strong immune system. Vitamin D is one of the top vitamins that fight against the flu and illness. The probiotic keeps their digestive system on the right track. By the way, my probiotic of choice also comes in powder form which is great for babies. Find it HERE. The multivitamin is raw and fills in the holes I might miss with their diet. The Omega 3’s are great for brain function and overall development.
Our children’s health is in our hands. I want to raise the girls in a healthy environment where they know what is healthy and what is not and exercise is not an option it’s just something they do. This being said I constantly wrestle with myself on making good decisions with exercise and food. I’m definitely a work in progress, but it’s truly about striving to make healthy decisions each and every day then finding balance.
Research is key to the health of ourselves and our children-the pharmaceutical business is out to make money. I often refer to www.drmercola.com. He is a doctor but believes our bodies can be healed by a healthy lifestyle, not drugs. Check him out-I’ve run to his site many a time!!
