#Blogmas Day 4 – Vitabiotics Wellkid Omega-3 & Vitamin D Review
Taking vitamins from an early age is super important. It is also important to know which vitamins are best for your children.
Over the last 10 years, the awareness of the importance of Omega-3 has grown, and ensuring your child receives enough Omega-3 is a valuable step towards giving him or her the best start in life. Results from the National Diet and Nutrition Survey (NDNS) suggest that the consumption of oily fish, which is the main source of beneficial Omega-3 fatty acids, remains low. Children are eating well below the minimum recommendation of two portions of fish per week, including one portion of oily fish.
Omega-3 can be found in high concentrations in oily fish, such as mackerel, sardines, trout and (fresh) tuna. However, as parents know, many children do not like the taste of oily fish so it can be difficult to ensure your child is getting all the Omega-3 they need and the minimum one portion per week.
Elizabeth takes one tablet each every morning. This is the very first thing she does after waking up, she never forgets to take her vitamins. Omega 3 tastes and smells like oranges and Vitamin D one tastes and smells like strawberries. The only problem is that, I can not give it to Eva as she is not even 2 year old yet so they always argue over it. Elizabeth also feels like a big girl as she knows that Eva can not have it so I think this is why she never forgets to take them 🙂
I have seen significant changes in the last few weeks she has been taking vitamins. The first think and I thank god every minute for it is her appetite. She is a super fussy eater and it would take us hours to convince her to eat something, but you should see her now, she has at least 3 proper meals a day!

Support for growth and development of bone, plus immune system
Vitamin D is needed for normal growth and development of bone in children and is included in the preferred form vitamin D3 (as vegan Cholecalciferol) which is naturally produced by the skin when exposed to direct sunlight. Bones get stronger when used and any kind of physical exercise is great for your kids, such as walking, running, dancing, tennis, gymnastics, and football. Children who tend to play outside will also have higher vitamin D levels. Vitamin D also contributes to the normal immune system function in children.
Great tasting vegetarian and vegan vitamin D
Kids can be very particular about their likes and dislikes so it is important to give them a supplement that tastes great and that they are happy to take. Wellkid Peppa Pig Vitamin D are premium quality soft jellies that provide the recommended daily amount in a delicious natural strawberry flavour that kids love. These soft jellies are suitable for vegetarians, and vegans too. These jellies are super soft and easy to chew as well.
