Supplements for your picky-eater

Updated: Sep 17, 2021

It's no secret that young children, especially toddlers, can be picky about food. The taste, texture, smell, even colour can all be too much for them. As a parent, you might feel frustrated and anxious that your child isn't consuming the nutrients they need for healthy growth and development. It's okay to feel this way; however, don't beat yourself up; selective eating is often typical for young ones. They've just gone through a period of rapid growth, and many things, including their senses, are adapting, which can significantly impact their food choices.

The good news is that while you can't control them living on toast or dry pasta for weeks, you can up the vitamins and minerals they consume by introducing a supplement to their diet. We recommend our Kidgarde range, which includes orange-flavoured syrup and gummies.

The Kidgarde range ingredients include:


Echinacea is a popular herbal ingredient used to treat various conditions, including colds and upper respiratory infections. This purpler cone-like flower also strengthens the immune system enabling it to fight off infections stronger and faster.

Green tea

Green tea helps your children fight cold and flu faster. It is rich in antioxidants and antiviral properties, which fight against infections like the flu. Some research also suggests that green tea can help reduce the risk of cavities in children's teeth and bad breath.

Elderberry extract

Elderberry is rich in Vitamin C, making it a powerful immune-boosting ingredient. Elderberry is known for its healing and immune-boosting qualities and used for those purposes for thousands of years.

Remember, healthy growth and development depends on much more than the food your child eats. Other ways to improve your child's health is proper sleep, hand-washing, exercise, and healthy whole food and non-sugary snacks.
