B1 (Thiamin)
B2 (Riboflavin)
B3 (Niacin)
B5 (Pantothenic acid)
B6
B7 (Biotin)
B9 (Folic acid)
B12

Why do children need it for growth and development?

B1 (Thiamin): Helps the body break down nutrients we get from food and use them for energy. B1 also helps us grow new healthy cells.
B2 (Riboflavin): Like B1, B2 helps break down nutrients and use as energy in the body, as well as helps our blood cells transport the oxygen we breathe in.
B3 (Niacin): Nearly every part of our body needs B3 to function properly - we use it to repair DNA and boost brain function.
B5 (Pantothenic acid): B5 helps our body break down as well as build fats and fatty acids. This directly contributes to the health of our brain, skin, liver, nervous system, eyes, and more!
B6: B6 is essential for brain development and functionality. It also helps keep our nervous system and immune system healthy.
B7 (Biotin): Similar to B1 and B2, B7 also helps break down the carbohydrates, protein, and fats we consume and turn them into usable energy.
B9 (Folic acid): This vitamin is essential for producing healthy red blood cells which we need to transport oxygen.

Vitamin D

What is Vitamin D?

Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin required for proper bone development and maintenance and has roles in the immune system, reduces inflammation, and can affect mental health. It is not present in many foods because the best source for vitamin D is the sun. Our skin is able to get vitamin D3 from the sun and our bodies convert it into the active form, vitamin D4.

Why do children need it for growth?

Vitamin D promotes calcium absorption to enable proper bone mineralization, as well as helps to maintain calcium and phosphorus blood levels to prevent bone loss. With adequate calcium intake but insufficient vitamin D, bone health may suffer and growth delays can occur.

Food Sources

Vitamin D is most abundantly available to the human body from the sun, but there are some food sources. Ensuring intakes of dietary vitamin D is extra important if the climate where you live requires more time inside or if your skin is darker, it will be less efficient at taking in vitamin D from the sun.
