Keeping children safe throughout the Corona time is critical. This is due to the fact that children under the age of 12 have not yet been immunised. As a result, parents provide calcium and vitamin supplements to their children in order to enhance their immunity. In such a case, it is critical to understand whether such supplements are harmful to children rather than beneficial. Which kids require this sort of supplement? Should a doctor's advise be followed before offering it?

What does supplement mean?

Calcium, iron, vitamin A, B and D tablets, which the doctor may have advised to take at some point in time when ill. Such pills are called supplements.

Do children over the age of 5 need supplements?

According to Bhakti Samant, Chief Dietician, Kokilaben Hospital, children need vitamins and calcium when their body develops. If children are eating properly, then they get calcium and vitamins from food, but if for some reason some things are not being given to children, then children above 5 years of age should be given supplements. Most kids don't like healthy food instead they like to eat junk food or fast food. Because of this, they are not able to get a balanced diet and parents get upset and start giving them such supplements.

Can I give it to children without a doctor's advice?

Dr. Samant says that even though supplements help in the development of the body, they should be given to children only under the supervision of a doctor.

Vegetarian children may also need supplements

According to Dr. Bhakti Samant, many children eat vegetarian food. As a vegetarian diet lacks B-12, omega-3, zinc, iron, vitamin D-3 and other nutrients. Also, many children do not like to drink milk. Therefore, under the supervision of a doctor, we can give supplements to vegetarian children.
