99.5% sugar free formulation to help support kid’s healthy growth & development.
Blackmores Superkids Growing Bones Chewables are a 99.5% sugar free formulation containing a daily boost of lactose-free calcium and a naturally derived form of vitamin D3 to help support kid’s healthy growth and development.
Bones are living tissues that are constantly growing, repairing and rebuilding. From the time we’re born, until the age of 25 our bodies build more bone than we lose. This helps us grow and develop strong skeletons that will support us throughout our lives.
Childhood and young adulthood are the key bone building years. As children grow, their bone mass increases until it reaches ‘peak bone mass’ in their late teens to early twenties, which is the greatest amount of bone a person can attain.
To support kids’ bone health, ensure they eat a well-balanced diet which includes plenty of calcium rich foods including dairy products (such as milk, cheese and yoghurt) and other sources of calcium (such as leafy green vegetables, tofu, nuts, legumes) and calcium-fortified foods (for example, soy milk).
Be sure kids get enough vitamin D. We obtain most of our vitamin D from the sun, so it’s important your child’s skin (hands, face, arms) is exposed to the sun for five to ten minutes every day in the warmer months and about 30 minutes in the cooler months.
It’s unlikely that adequate quantities of vitamin D will be obtained through diet alone – but food sources of vitamin D include eggs, liver, and fatty fish such as mackerel, herring and salmon.
Lastly, keep kids active. Physical activity is important for children – ensure that kids get at least 60 minutes of moderate activity every day.
Calcium phosphate hydrogen (calcium 175 mg)
Calcium is the most abundant mineral in the body and is primarily stored in the bones.
Calcium containing foods include dairy products, fortified soy products, broccoli, bok choy, fish with bones- such as salmon and sardines.
Manganese amino acid chelate (manganese 19.45 microgram)
Manganese is an essential trace mineral that is a co-factor in many of the body's enzymes, including superoxide dismutase. Manganese can be found in hazelnuts, blackberries, pineapple, lentils, beans and whole grains.
Zinc citrate dihydrate (zinc 400 μg)
Zinc is an essential trace element that plays a role in every living cell in the body. There are also around 300 enzymes that need zinc for healthy function.
Zinc containing foods include meat, eggs, seafood- especially oysters, whole grains and seeds.
Colecalciferol (vitamin D3 200 IU)
Cholecalciferol (vitamin D) is a fat-soluble nutrient that is manufactured in the skin through the action of sunlight. Vitamin D regulates calcium and phosphate metabolism which is important in the maintenance of bone health.
