Yum, right?I am not one of those parents who bans junk food but like all things moderation is key. The occasional treat is not a big deal but I am always wondering if they're meeting the nutritional requirements they need to grow healthy and strong? So, if I am going to give them a nutritional supplement I want to know that it has science to back it up. I grew up taking Shaklee and my mom used Shaklee products so I know it works! Shaklee is the #1 nutritional company in the United States and many of their children vitamins are also Gluten Free!
I was recently reading over a handbook by a Dr.Jamie McManus, M.D. for Shaklee and was surprised by some of the following facts:
- National Nutrition Survey says 25-30% of infants and toddlers age 9-24 months did not eat fruits and vegetables on a given day.
- French fries were the most common vegetable consumed by 15-24 month
- 46% of 7-8 month olds consumed some type of dessert, sweets or sweetened beverage!!
Shaklee vitamins and probiotics because I know that when they don't eat the best or are having a "picky" day their body is still getting the nutrients it needs. Shaklee also has incredible non-toxic cleaning products that Amey and I both swear by!
