Why are vitamins important for healthy development?
Vitamins and minerals are essential for healthy development and growth, especially for babies who are born prematurely. The required levels of vitamins are usually obtained through eating a healthy diet. Similarly breast milk and formula powders contain some vitamins but not enough to support the development of premature babies. It is so important to ensure that your child receives all the vitamins they require in order to support healthy growth and development.

Traditional supplements tend to contain just one vitamin or mineral, whereas multivitamins contain a blended formula of different vitamins and minerals, which are ideal for those who miss out on many vitamins from their diet. In some circumstances, it isn’t possible for children and babies to receive all of the vitamins they need from their diet alone, so multivitamins can help to include any vitamins and minerals that are missing in the diet.
