Whether you are pregnant, a new mother or a busy mum on the go, you need to make sure that your body is getting all the nutrients it needs. And as mums, you need to also ensure your kids are getting the right nutrients. While diet is the best way of doing so, sometimes we may need the additional help from vitamin supplements.
Throughout different stages of your life, you require many different kinds of vitamin and minerals to support your body’s changing needs. Also as your child grows, you need to make sure that he is getting the right nutrients to support his proper growth and development.
Eating healthy foods in pregnancy will help the baby to grow and will also keep you well. However, sometimes diet alone may not be enough. Mums may need extra help to get the essential nutrients to support their and their children’s growth.
You need to know what are the right vitamin supplements for you and your child. Blackmores understands the nutrient needs of women and children.
