Are mealtimes a struggle in your house? If you have a picky eater, here’s how multivitamins could help fill the nutrition gap in your child’s diet

If your kiddos are picky eaters, they may be missing out on nutrition from one or more important food groups. Supplementing your child’s diet with good all-round multivitamins like those from Zoo-Vite could give you the reassurance you need that their nutritional needs are being met, while you work on getting them onto a healthier balanced diet. Read on for all the info and don’t miss the 20% discount on regular supplements offer at the end!

Supplementing your child’s diet with Zoo-Vite vitamins

Zoo-Vite is a brand by HST Medical, the trusted Singapore company for health and supplements. The Zoo-Vite range of children’s dietary supplements is made from 100% natural ingredients (no artificial preservatives, sweeteners or colours, thank you very much). The vitamins come in great tasting fruity flavoured jelly sticks and gummies as well as in liquid form for even the fussiest eaters. Zoo-Vite supplements are free from animal gelatin, yeast, (wheat) gluten, peanuts, tree nuts and starch. Individually packaged sachets make these multivitamins super convenient and hygienic, not to mention handy for travelling and holidays!

If your child is a picky eater, there are lots of tips out there that can help get them back onto a balanced diet of whole foods — like continually reintroducing foods (their taste buds may change!) and making sure mealtimes aren’t hurried or stressful. While you are doing your best to encourage healthier appetites, Zoo-Vite has a number of different vitamins that can help fill the nutritional gap depending on your child’s eating habits and nutritional needs.
