Nutrition experts are often asked questions such as: Do children need vitamin and mineral supplementation? What are the effects of vitamin and mineral supplements on children? So let's explore whether children should take these supplements?
Nutrient needs for kids are dependent on age, gender, size, growth and activity level. According to health experts, young children between the ages of 2 and 8 require 1,000–1,400 calories a day. Those 9-13 years old need 1,400-2,600 calories per day, depending on certain factors such as activity level and growth status, etc.
In addition to eating enough calories, the child's diet should also meet the following Dietary Reference Intake (DRI).
Although the above mentioned nutrients are the most commonly discussed ones, they are not the only nutrients children need. Children need certain amount of each vitamin and mineral for normal growth and health, but the amounts vary with age. Older children and teenagers need different amounts of nutrients to achieve optimal health.

Consuming fruits and vegetables is an important way for the body to obtain multiple vitamins, minerals and other nutrients. Children’s intake of fruit and vegetable is affected by factors such as chewing ability and eating habits. According to a survey, the average daily intake of fruits and vegetables for children aged 3-5 years is only an average of 38 grams per day. Childhood is the fastest growth and development period in a person's life, and the demand for various nutrients is certainly greater, especially vitamins, which play an important role in the growth and development of children. A survey in the United States showed that moderate vitamin and mineral supplements increased the nonverbal intelligence of some school-age children by 2 to 3 points. 【1】
