For children to thrive and develop, it’s important that they have a robust nutritional foundation. Many food choices are highly processed and can act as a barrier to ensuring your child obtains the right nutrients in the right amount. Ensuring our children eat a nutrient-dense diet can be a greater challenge if they have allergies, gut issues, are picky eaters.
The Public Health England’s National Diet and Nutrition Survey reported a significant proportion of children and adolescents with inadequate levels of key micronutrients including vitamins and minerals.
The UK has the second-highest rate of obesity in Europe. For all family members, especially growing children, it’s vital to ensure everyone eats a balanced healthy diet and engage in regular physical activity.

Bigvits understand the extra nutritional needs of the whole family including key vitamins (B vitamins, C and D) and minerals (magnesium, zinc, iron, calcium).
