Do you need to support your child’s diet with a supplement.
If your child’s diet is balanced in general and your child is not a fussy eater then a multi vitamin is not a necessity on the other hand If your child is selective about the kind of foods he or she will eat then a supplement is a helpful way to ensure that all the right nutrients are being taken in. For example if your child refuses to have milk or dairy products then a calcium and vitamin D supplement may help to build strong bones.
The first line of health and wellness for your toddlers should always be real food and being mindful of processed snacks and energy drinks they have, because these foods deplete the body of nutrients. A variety of food is important and including fish, lean protein, fresh vegetables and fruits and healthy slow release carbohydrates should be the focus.
Try not to look for perfection in every meal otherwise it creates a battleground for unwanted attention. I would say that once you have looked at what your child is eating on a weekly basis then you can decide if they need a supplement to support their energy, growth, brain health and wellbeing.
If you choose to support with a supplement then a high grade vegan brand @gandgvits is a good choice. Don’t feel that by using a supplement you have failed on the contrary, topping up your child’s diet with extra nutrients is sometimes a necessary part of their diet especially for busy active little people.

Watch till the end. This video has a success story of ‘mind over matter’
After many many attempts today and before today, Arjun was able to hang on the bar by his own bodyweight for a few seconds. Some parents may call me cruel for what I did, but I understand he importance of mindset, arjun was not crying because of anything else but fear he would have been able to hold there for a longer period if I did not catch him. After today my little man has crossed the barrier of fear and now success on this little exercise is just waiting for him :)
Dinner with the boys. At my favorite restaurant. Saffron said “dad it’s so dirty here”. I told him “huwag maarte sam”. When the food came he was all smiles. He enjoyed the liempo, which happens to be my favorite as well. My nephew Tristan is an addict of the dreaded chicken achuete oil! Hahaha. #startthemyoung#startthemearly#bawalmaarte#noairconnoproblem

It felt like spring yesterday here in England. The sun carried the warmth of spring and the air was filled with the smell if soil and spring flowers. It makes me eager to get out and plant my vegetable garden. I have big goals for it this year.
Growing your own food is rewarding and fulfilling. Vegetables from your garden just taste better. And for obvious reasons. They are fresh, picked at perfect ripeness, grown with love and free from nasty chemicals. Plus, you and your kids get to be outside, enjoy the weather and learn about where your food comes from. Growing your own garden is an art that needs never be forgotten but less and less of us are doing it. You don't need much room to grow your own food. Just a small planter box filmed with lettuce or a few small pots of herbs. -
Just give it a go and you will be surprised how amazingly flavourful and satisfying your home grown food is.
