What are good vitamins for my family

April 5, 2022

I’m asked all the time, ‘What are good vitamins to buy?’ ‘Should I keep offering these ones or are there better ones to buy?’ It’s a loaded question, because there are so many factors to consider. But I’ve done a quick round up here, and given some details as to why. Full disclosure these links are affiliate links so I may receive a small dividend should you purchase using my. link. I would recommend a detailed assessment to confirm what the perfect combination is for you or your kids, but you can also discuss with your physician.

Energetic Mom

You are the captain of the ship. You keep things going. In order to do that you need to take great care of yourself. You need to have the energy and the stamina to keep up with your kids, to parent the way you want to. There are a few important components here – the food you eat, the way you manage your stress, the way you move your body and how you hydrate. For many moms there can be some nutrition gaps between needs and daily intake. Here are some of my favorite supplements for moms. Check with your provider or set up a consult with me and we can confirm the right combination fo your needs.

Healthy Kids

Healthy kids is what we all want, right? How can we make sure that happens? What’s the right supplement for my kid? Well… it depends. It depends on what they will eat and how often. It also depends on what supplement they’re willing to take. In my experience eaters fall into one of two categories: the meat eaters and the fruit or veggie eaters. This is important when it comes to supplements because the nutrient gaps will be very different for each group. For the meat eaters (fruit and veggie dislike) group getting adequate vitamin C and A, magnesium and folate are important. For the fruit and veggie lovers (protein haters) group iron and zinc are really important.

Healthy Dads

Dads are a key component of many families (*though I know not all great families have dads). Men’s health and nutrition shares similar key nutrients like vitamin D, zinc, magnesium and iron. Making sure the men in our lives are well-nourished and healthy is an important consideration. This combination is designed to support the unique needs of men.

I often get questions regarding the proper vitamins for families, so I hope this round up is helpful. I always recommend discussing supplements with your dietitian and physician to ensure it’s the right combination for your needs.
