Short-term and long-term benefits of the right nutrition
Here’s a motherhood tip that will always come in handy. When it comes to making sure that your child is getting the right balance of nourishment he or she needs, consistency is key. Just like your time at the gym, the more consistent you are, the more results you will see. The right servings of PediaSure with every balanced meal, starts to show results in just 4 weeks. Specifically, as a significant increase in the levels of essential nutrients needed by kids during their growing years between 1 and 10.
Mothers who add a glass of their kid’s favourite flavour of PediaSure to some of the meals in the day have seen incredible improvements.
Here are some of these nutrients and the increase in their levels after just 4 weeks of consumption along with their regular dietary requirements.
Niacin, commonly known as Vitamin B3, is important for improving brain function. Levels of this nutrient have been seen going up from 92.1% to 100% in the first 4 weeks.
Riboflavin or Vitamin B2 is crucial for overall good health as it helps break down carbohydrates and fats. In 4 weeks, it has risen from 80.9% to 100%.
Thiamine or Vitamin B1 is known to play a key role in glucose metabolism to release energy, improve nerve, muscle and heart function. The levels of this vitamin have risen from 76.4% to 100%.
Vitamin C, which is commonly known to boost the immunity system and overall development, has risen from 97.4% to 52.8%.
Vitamin A is another key nutrient. It also helps with keeping the immunity system strong, aids in healthy growth and improves eyesight. The levels of this vitamin were seen rising from 61.8% to 91%.
Iron helps reduce fatigue and boosts a child’s immunity. With PediaSure, the levels were seen rising from 59.6% to 98.7% over the span of a month.
Calcium, the source of stronger bones and teeth saw an increase from 50.1% to 93.5%.
Proteins are known as the building blocks of bones, muscles, skin, and blood. From an average of 80.9%, the levels of Protein rose to 90.3%.
The levels of energy that the children were able to extract from all the essential nutrients also went up. From 38.2% to 60%.
The good news is that the improved appetite and a significant increase in physical activity that parents reported seeing in their kids after the first 4 weeks of adding PediaSure to their balanced diets, is just the beginning.
By the 8th week they saw an improvement in weight gain which was in proportion to the child’s height. Helping them not just be healthier but look it too.
By the 12th week, height followed. Parents saw their kids growing in height and no longer remain stunted and feeling underconfident.
As the 16th week came along, the kids began to show more interest in different kinds of food, and voluntarily chose to consume a much wider variety of meals. Naturally, this led to healthier growth and better immunity. Or in school terms, fewer sick days.
48 weeks into PediaSure being a part of several meals in the day, parents were thrilled to discover that their kids continued to show proportionate growth. There was nothing stopping them now from sustaining this development throughout their formative years.
