Your child may not always eat all his fruits and vegetables as he should. Giving your child natural children supplements is a good way to make sure he gets all of the necessary nutrition needed during the growing years. Natural growth supplements for children can help promote mental and physical development through a combination of essential vitamins and minerals.

Super Mini-Multi

Wellness Resources Super Mini-Multi is a children's multiple vitamin supplement designed to provide daily nutrients needed for growth. One bottle comes with 120 capsules that, according to WellnessResources.com, contain co-enzyme forms of B-vitamins. Based on the website, the capsules also contain natural carotenes, organic iron and bioflavonoides, and have no artificial colors, flavors or additives. Capsules are small in size to make it easy for children to swallow. Wellness Resources' recommended dosages are 1/2 to 1 capsule per day for infants, 1 capsule one to three times daily for children under 4, and 1 to 2 capsules one to three times a day for children 4 and over. The capsules can be crushed and mixed with food or drinks but should not be heated.

Pediakid 12/17

Pediakid 12/17 contains 2 packs of 15 chewable lemon-tart flavored tablets. The product is marketed as a natural supplement to strengthen body defense systems and to promote physical and mental growth through adolescence. According to Pediakid.com, 12/17 consists of two lactic acid strains, as well as 12 vitamins, four minerals and probiotics that supply the daily nutrients, and encourages body and brain functions. The probiotics in 12/17 are designed to resist stomach acidity. Upon reaching the intestines, the tablets dissolve where, according to the Pediakid website, the nutrients are most effective. Pediakid recommends 1 to 2 tablets per day, including one in the morning taken without food. Children under 3 years should not take 12/17.
