The latest research into chronic disease has shown us that supporting a child’s nutritional needs early on in life can significantly reduce the risk of chronic diseases including diabetes, cancer and cardiovascular disease later in life. However feeding our diet the nutrient rich food they need is not always plain sailing. Selective eating habits, time constraints, travelling, school, and cooking methods can pose ‘nutritional hurdles’ for little eaters.
Spending long periods of time indoors or seasonal changes during the colder or wetter months can challenge the immune system.Research has shown that a deficiency in zinc in children under 5 years of age is widespread. Supporting their nutritional gap can be a positive addition to their growth and development. Our Food-Grown Zinc has been shown to be 75 % better absorbed and retained by the body than synthetic forms like zinc sulphate or gluconate. Studies have shown our Food Grown Vitamin C to be up to 1210% better absorbed and retained by the body than other commonly used forms of ascorbic acid. Vitamin B2 has been included in this formula to support the cellular transportation of zinc.
All the products in our Bespoke Child range have been formulated by Wild Nutrition’s Co-founder, Nutritional Therapist and health author Henrietta Norton BSc, Dip NT. As well as working with children of all ages in her clinic over the last 13 years, Henrietta has conducted extensive research into childhood development and nutrition. As a mother of 3 young children herself, Henrietta also understands the trials and tribulations that feeding your children a nourishing diet can bring.
