Moms share how they add vitamins to their kids’ diet
Tips include mixing it with their favorite drink and establishing a routine

Protecting their children from diseases is a top priority for moms, especially in the world that we live in today.

Kids need proper nutrition to ensure their healthy development and strong immunity to fight against diseases. However, there are crucial nutrients that the body cannot produce on its own, such as Vitamin C and Zinc.

Getting their daily dose of Vitamin C or ascorbic acid is important because it acts as an antioxidant that fights off the body’s free radicals. These are atoms that can damage cells and protein. Exposure to cigarette smoke, the sun’s ultraviolet rays, and air pollution are considered environmental sources of free radicals.

Zinc likewise reinforces the immune system. Deficiency in this nutrient has been linked to decreased cell growth and a lower resistance to infections.

While your child can get Vitamin C and Zinc from food, they are likely not enough for their daily requirements. That’s when supplements come in handy.

Not all vitamins are the same

It pays to read the label when looking for vitamins to give your kids.

Ascorbic Acid + Zinc (Ceelin Plus®) was developed to help children get the full dose of Vitamin C and Zinc that they need along with proper diet and exercise. ZincPlus Technology, which is used in formulating Ascorbic Acid + Zinc (Ceelin Plus®), guarantees the stable combination of Vitamin C and Zinc in every dose — giving your little ones added protection from illnesses by boosting their immunity combined with proper diet and exercise.

Cherish Feliminiano-Berces, a digital content creator and mom of 2, says Ascorbic Acid + Zinc (Ceelin Plus®) is the vitamin brand she trusts for her 8-year-old daughter and one-year-old son, as it complements their active lifestyle.

“My family and I always love doing different activities. To be able to do them, we have to make sure that we are physically and mentally healthy,” she said.

Overcoming the challenge of giving vitamins to little ones

Giving kids vitamins, however, is not exactly a walk in the park.

“At first, just like most parents, making my kids take vitamins wasn’t easy,” said mommy blogger Denise Rayala. She has 2 daughters, aged 12 and 3, and is expecting. “They would spit it out and make a mess just to prove their dislike.”

The secret, according to Rayala, is building a routine. She shares that her 3-year-old daughter just started taking vitamins. “‘Vitamins Time’ is always done after her first meal of the day, so it kind of stuck [with] her that she even reminds us of it when we forget,” she said.

Rayala adds, it also helped when she made her daughter watch a video that discussed the importance of taking vitamins.

Flavor kids will like

Aside from providing added protection for kids, Ascorbic Acid + Zinc (Ceelin Plus®) is easy to give to children because it comes in various age-appropriate forms to suit each stage of development. There’s Ascorbic Acid + Zinc (Ceelin Plus®) Drops for babies up to a year old, Ascorbic Acid + Zinc (Ceelin Plus®) Syrup for kids aged 2 to 6, and Ascorbic Acid + Zinc (Ceelin Plus®) Chewables for children ages 7 and up.

Ascorbic Acid + Zinc (Ceelin Plus®) comes in Apple flavor. Lifestyle blogger Andrea Taylor says this makes giving vitamins to her kids easier because they “love” apple flavor. She has sons aged 3 and 5, and is expecting another child.

She said, “They look forward to taking them and would not give me a hard time every single night. I think this has been the easiest I’ve had them take their vitamins through their early development years.”

With its immunity boosting contents, Ascorbic Acid + Zinc (Ceelin Plus®) aids moms in protecting their children’s health along with proper diet and exercise.

Ascorbic Acid + Zinc (Ceelin Plus®) is available in leading pharmacies nationwide. — Rappler.com
