Get the right nutrients with Usanimals

Are you confident that your child is getting all the nutrients he or she needs for daily nutrition and overall health? How do you encourage your child to like or even enjoy taking vitamins?

For me, I’m not really confident that my son’s are getting the right vitamins they need. As a mom, I barely cook home cooked meals for my kids. I’m always on the go and getting home late ended on takeout foods like pizza and burgers.

I know that my kids are big enough in taking vitamins and some people are surprised when they know that I let my sons take vitamins. As you know, I have 14-year-old and 12 years old sons. They are both home-schooled and giving them the right food is really a challenge. They have their own eating habits that I could not control since I’m always away.Our Family with my husband and kids

Vitamin C is always my first choice but I learned that too much vitamin C is really useless because our body only recognizes the right amount we need and the rest is being urinated. Meaning the money I spent on Vitamin C ended in our toilet bowl. So I need a complete vitamin supplement, not just a vitamin C.

When USANA, introduced Usanimals, I’m bit skeptical not on its effectiveness but on the price. But thinking of it it’s not pricey really. The first point it contains 23 essentials vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants in just one chewable tablet versus a two or three kinds of vitamins I can get in the market. Second, it’s chewable with a berry flavor and zero sugar that could harm my kid’s health.  I’m just thankful that my 12-year-old loves chewing this vitamin.I’m so happy to know Usanimals by USANA. For parents like me, we can support our children’s growth in a fun, convenient and healthful way.  It is free of artificial flavors and sweeteners. Each chewable tablet is easy to eat and stamped with animal shapes and has a natural wild berry flavor, making it a yummy and fun treat! It is best-suited children ages 2 to 12.

According to Gen Blasurca, Corporate Pharmacist at USANA  “Good growth encompasses all aspects in the development of children – from physical, physiological, intellectual, emotional and psychological. We are proud to say that Usanimals by USANA can support the nutritional demands of growing children by providing the relevant and the most comprehensive nutrients that result in improved overall health development.”Gen Blasurca, Corporate Pharmacist at USANA

Meanwhile, micro-nutrients are essential vitamins and minerals children needed in small amounts to support their physical and mental development.  Our child’s diet must also be sufficient to provide for the accumulation of stores of nutrients in preparation for the accelerated growth spurts of the teen years. The lack of micro-nutrients such as iodine, vitamin A or iron in their daily diet may result in brain underdevelopment and poor performance in school, as well as the inability to cope with stress.
