Do popular and widely advertised health drinks and supplements provide children the vitamins and minerals they need? Nutrition products make tall claims but a closer look at their labels will tell you that the RDA (recommended dietary allowance) of most products aren’t sufficient for your child’s needs. The nutrition claims also depend on your using a large quantity of the product, as prescribed on the label. If you were to use that amount, your box of health drink powder will run out in a week. Trusting these products to take care of your child’s vitamin needs can be dangerous. There is far greater benefit in getting vitamins from natural sources. Here’s a food chart to help you add vital vitamins to your children’s meals.
