The Kids Good Stuff Difference

 

Kids Good Stuff at a glance…

Why supplement?

The early years are a time of rapid growth and development, and kids need to be supported with great nutrition. Many people, kids included, do not consume an optimal diet, and only around ¼ of kids between the ages of 4 and 8 eat the recommended amounts of vegetables and fruits.

What is it?

Comprehensive nutritional support for kids that provides eace of mind for parents!

Kids Good Stuff is a multi-nutrient blend of superfood greens, berries, vegetables, herbs and added vitamins and minerals. KGS provides on average over 100% of the RDI for kids aged between 4 and 8.

Who is it for?

Children 4-8+

How do you use  it?

2 scoops (15g) daily in water, milk or substitute of your choice in addition to meals.

There has been a lot of controversy about optimal nutrition for kids. It stands to reason that people have very defined views on nutrition for kids because we all want to ensure that they are getting the nutrients they need to grow and develop into the best they can be and yet research from the latest New Zealand Ministry of Health ‘National Children’s Nutrition Survey’ suggests that only 40% of children eat the recommended amounts of both fruit and vegetables per day.1 This data also suggested that although many children are getting adequate amounts of the essential vitamins and minerals, this worsens as they age, and fewer and fewer children get all of the essential nutrients they require as they grow older. By the time they reach adulthood many Kiwis are not getting the recommended amounts of many of vitamins and minerals from their diets2 that they need to thrive. Not having sufficient amounts of the essential nutrients is a cofactor in the expression of poor health.

The shift towards eating more sugar, refined carbohydrates and processed (trans) fats and more processed food that has occurred over the past four decades has also been detrimental to health and has increased rates of obesity, diabetes and other metabolic disorders. One of the most important solutions for this challenge is to encourage the receptive minds of our young people to become reconnected to REAL food again and to support them with intelligent nutritional supplement.
