Your kids are constantly growing.Make sure your kids' brains get what they need to keep them on their “A-game” and grow into their best, healthiest selves with Flora’s children’s line. Ensuring children hit all the nutritional marks can be challenging—understatement of the year!—mainly because the typical modern diet is composed of refined foods stripped of their nutrients. If it’s not hard enough to make sure your kids are getting the vitamins, minerals, and healthy fats they need to develop healthy bones, brains, and vital organs, add your busy schedules and an argumentative eater. It’s this perfect storm that leaves many children lacking vital nutrients during one of their most critical times of development. Thankfully, there’s a delicious way for parents to provide their youngsters with the nutrition they need, naturally. Flora’s line of children’s health products include:
- Efalex(CA) - a brain-boosting omega oil blend
- Kid's Multi Essentials - an easy-to-absorb liquid multivitamin
- Children's Probiotics - healthy bacteria help to support your kids' gut health - no matter what they eat, (or don't)!
First Things First
Essential fatty acids are crucial to the development of children’s brains and cognitive abilities. Are your kids getting enough? According to pediatric dietitian, Laura Gibofsky, “Omega oils are part of the process of building new cells and the key to developing the central nervous and cardiovascular systems.” Not only that, but studies have also shown that omegas can increase your child’s cognitive function and brain development, aid in behavioral issues due to their role in neurotransmitter functions, and even help with your child’s memory development. By simply adding organic vegetarian flax omegas or DHA-rich, flax-based omega oils (US/CA) to your child’s diet, you’re giving them the tools they need to get ahead in life and grow up to be their best and strongest selves. Simply drizzle a spoonful of omega oil into your kid’s smoothie or take a dose following a meal for best absorption. They’ll thank you later!
