Your Children Should Be Taking Vitamins…..NOT Eating Sugar
We’re not going to sugar coat this for you. These are VITAMINS, not CANDY!
Why Do My Kids Need a Children’s Vitamin?
For any parent, the most important thing in the world is the health and well-being of their children. And while we have more knowledge now than ever before in history about how to keep our children healthy, statistics tell us that we’re falling behind. In fact, it’s become quite clear that our children are not as healthy now, on the whole, as they were in previous generations.
Consider some of these alarming statistics:
- Childhood obesity has tripled since the 1970’s. Currently 13.9 % of 2 – 5 year olds, and 18% of 6 – 11 year olds are clinically obese.
- 1 in 12 children suffer from Asthma.
- Ambulatory care visits for digestive disorders rose 30% from 1994 to 2004, and are continuing to climb.
- Mental health and digestive health are intimately connected. There is substantial scientific evidence showing that digestive disorders can trigger mental health issues including depression, anxiety, stress, confusion, and even autism.
- Speaking of autism, today 1 in 68 children suffer from some level of autism, an increase from 1994, when that number was 1 in 150. While part of this increase is due to improved reporting, it is also evident that there are changes in the population at large.
While many factors contribute to the decline in children’s health, ALL of the factors can be traced to two simple concepts:
- and/or Deficiency
Starting in the 1960’s, we can easily chart the statistics of chemicals, toxins, and heavy metals unloaded into our air, our water, our food, and our homes. All of these toxins take a toll on our health, depleting our natural stores of key nutrients.
Common sources of “environmental toxins” include:
- Polluted Air
- Polluted Water
- Pesticides and Herbicides
In addition to the toxicity we all experience just by going through our lives, we, as well as our children, are suffering from nutritional deficiencies due to these factors:
- Depleted Soil
- Reduced Sun Exposure
- Fussy Eating
But Can’t My Children Get All the Nutrition They Need From a Healthy, Balanced Diet?
Short answer…..it’s almost impossible.
In addition to the problems with our food (the depleted soil, environmental toxins, etc.), there is another factor making it difficult for our children to get all the nutrients they need from a clean, balanced diet. And that problem is…..JUNK FOOD.
Try as we might, it’s not always easy to make sure that our children are eating properly. Virtually all processed foods contain some form of sugar, as well as chemicals, additives, preservatives, unhealthy processed fats, refined grains, and other junk that not only fails to nourish, but can actually cause serious harm, contributing to a variety of diseases, including diabetes and cancer.
Even if your children are eating a clean, healthy, balanced diet, how much of those foods would they need to eat to get what their growing bodies need?
Let’s start with Thiamine, also known as Vitamin B1. Thiamine is essential for supporting your child’s nervous system, heart, and muscles. Failing to get enough Thiamine can even result in hampering your child’s ability to learn.
One of the best sources of Thiamine is Brussels Sprouts.
But to get enough Thiamine in one day, your child would need to eat….. SIX CUPS OF BRUSSELS SPROUTS!
What about some of the other key vitamins?
- Vitamin B6 – key to brain development, and responsible for over 100 enzymatic reactions in the body = 10 Cups of Spinach
- Folate – necessary for producing DNA, and for cells to divide, which is crucial for growing bodies = 0.5lbs of Beef Liver
- Calcium – which our children need for growth of healthy bones and teeth = 7 Cups of Yogurt
That’s right, in order to get enough B1, B6, Folate, and Calcium (just to name a few), your child would need to eat:
- 6 Cups of Brussels Sprouts
- 10 Cups of Spinach
- 1/2 Pound of Beef Liver
- 7 Cups of Yogurt
Each and every day. I don’t know about you, but I don’t know ANY kids that would be ok eating all of that….not to mention EVERYTHING ELSE they need to keep growing!
So What’s The Answer?
The short answer, is to supplement a healthy, well-balanced diet with a daily multivitamin.
There are lots of vitamin supplements on the market designed specifically to meet the nutritional needs of children. In fact, you probably know (and maybe have even taken) the #1 supplement in the world…..The World Famous Flinstones Vitamins.
But you know what ELSE is in ALL of those children’s vitamin formulas??
And lots of it!
If your child takes Flintstones Gummies, over the course of a year, they’ll be getting nearly FOUR CUPS of sugar, from their vitamins ALONE.
But that’s not all. Here is just a PARTIAL list of the unnecessary and even toxic ingredients you’ll find in Flintstones Complete:
- Dextrose Monohydrate (another form of sugar)
- Maltodextrin (another form of sugar)
- Sorbitol (artificial sweetener)
- Sucralose (artificial sweetener)
- Microcrystalline Cellulose
- Natural and Artificial Flavoring
- Pregelatinized starch
- Magnesium Stearate
- Soy Lecithin
- FD&C Blue #2
- FD&C Red #40
- FD&C Yellow #6
- Silicon Dioxide
Here at Pure Vitamin Club, you know what we say to all of that??
YABBA DABBA DON’T!!

It’s one thing to discuss what’s NOT in a vitamin supplement. It’s another thing to discuss what IS in it. Ultimately, that’s what you’re really looking for in a product for your children. At Pure Vitamin Club, we believe in using the very best ingredients possible. That’s never more important than when a product is for your CHILDREN!
