Life Science Nutritionals Releases a New Infographic Aimed at Helping Parents Teach Kids About Vitamins
Date:10/1/2013

Burlington, Ontario (PRWEB) October 01, 2013

How many times have parents said, “Eat your vegetables so you grow big and strong!” to motivate their kids to gobble up greens and crunch down carrots? Thanks to Life Science Nutritionals (LSN), now parents have another tool to help teach their kids about eating healthy!

Life Science Nutritionals, the makers of IronKids gummy vitamins for kids, has released a new infographic aimed at helping kids understand what vitamins do. The Vitamins + You infographic and accompanying coloring sheet highlights just a few of the important health functions that are supported by vitamins.

“We believe teaching kids the importance of proper nutrition when they are young will lead them to making healthier choices when they grow up and Mom or Dad are not the ones making the meals,” says LSN Social Media Manager, Deb Lowther, herself a mother of three young girls. “Kids need to understand the how and the why we ask them to eat healthy foods and take vitamins otherwise it becomes just another thing we tell them to do.”

The Vitamins + You infographic highlights just a few of the essential vitamins and minerals growing kids need for maintaining healthy eyes, helping growing teeth and bones, promoting strong muscles and developing a smart brain in easy-to-understand terms.

The fun-filled infographic also includes a “Did You Know…?” nutritional science fact sheet for parents to share with their kids. The fact sheet is packed full of interesting body facts, like “Did you know that neurons can send information to your brain at speeds of over 240km an hour?” and “Did you know your teeth and bones are actually alive?”

“We hear over and over from parents how getting kids to eat their vegetables or try baked salmon is a huge challenge,” says Lowther who makes eating healthy a priority for her family. “If we can encourage them to take small bites and taste new flavours while at the same time explaining what parts of their body the Omegas in that salmon are good for, they may be more willing to try it.”

For her daughters, she finds that they just don’t eat a lot at one sitting, so while they may eat broccoli and carrots, the serving is very small. That’s why Lowther includes vegetables in everything she makes and bakes! She shares her favorite kid-friendly recipes for healthy snacks, school lunch ideas, berry smoothies and even spinach brownies on the IronKids blog where the Vitamins + You infographic is published.

The IronKids blog is intended to be a healthy living resource for parents. Every week, IronKids posts practical how-to’s on everything from the science behind Omega 3 for brain development to tips on how to get the kids off the couch and outside being active.

“Staying healthy isn’t just about taking a vitamin once-a-day,” says Lowther. “It’s about eating a well-balanced diet that includes taking the proper supplements for those occasions when there’s a gap in our nutrition.”
