How it works
A diet full of fresh fruit and veggies is vital for every child’s healthy growth and development. Support your child’s nutritional intake of key vitamins and minerals with Fusion Kids’ Nutrient Ninja, a delicious-tasting multivitamin specially formulated for growing kids.
Kids’ Nutrient Ninja contains 25 nutritionals, including vitamins, minerals, bioflavonoids, betacarotene and lutein. Read on to learn more about key ingredients in this comprehensive formula.
Iodine supports kids’ growth and development
Along with several other nutrients in Kids’ Nutrient Ninja, the trace mineral iodine plays an important role in supporting children’s normal, healthy growth and development, so may be a particularly important consideration in your child’s diet.
Seafood and seaweed are good sources of this vital mineral.
It’s also found in other foods (like meat and vegetables), but its levels from these sources vary, especially as the soil in some parts of Australia is iodine-deficient*.
Most commercially produced bread in Australia is fortified with iodine to help reduce the risk of inadequate consumption, and in small quantities, iodised sea salt is another dietary source that can provide iodine in your child’s diet*.
Selenium maintains children’s growth and development too
Like iodine, selenium is essential for maintaining children’s healthy growth and development, and is found in fish, seafood and meat. It’s also present in Brazil nuts, garlic and brewers’ yeast.
Selenium works closely in the body with iodine and vitamin E, among other nutrients.
Iron supports kids’ cognitive development
Cognition is the term used to describe various aspects of mental function, including the ability to learn, understand and use logic. Childhood is a time when all of these skills accumulate at a rapid pace.
Iron helps maintain children’s healthy cognitive development. It’s found in a range of foods in the diet, but is better absorbed in the haem form that’s found in animal-based foods like meat and eggs (as opposed to non-haem iron as is found in spinach and other leafy green vegetables).
Choline also supports children’s brain and nervous system development, where it works by aiding in the production of neurotransmitters (brain chemicals).
Vitamins for healthy bones and teeth
Vitamins A, D3 and K2 support healthy bone building in 2 to 12 year olds, and also support the development of healthy teeth.
For example, vitamin K2 supports the incorporation of minerals like calcium into the teeth (mineralisation), which contributes to their strength and hardness.
B-vitamins and energy production
Active, growing kids need lots of energy to get them through their busy days. The B-group vitamins B1, B2, B3, B6 and B12 support children’s cellular energy production, and also their healthy growth and development.
Zinc supports a healthy appetite
Taking a zinc supplement supports a healthy appetite in children whose dietary zinc intake is inadequate.
Ziziphus: traditionally used to calm kids’ nervous tension
In traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), ziziphus (also known as jujube or red date) is traditionally used to calm the mind, soothe the spirit and relieve children’s nervous tension.
It’s also traditionally taken in TCM to support general health and wellbeing and by nourishing the blood and Qi (life force energy), and to strengthen the spleen and thus relieve loss of appetite.
