Unfortunately, the food we currently have in stores is almost unlike anything from years ago. It is definitely less valuable in terms of valuable substances, especially if it comes from not the best suppliers. For this reason, many parents decide to give their children a set of vitamins and minerals, especially in the winter season. In some situations, a doctor decides about supplementation.
One of the products recommended for children is Centrum Junior, dietary supplement in the form of lozenges, for children from 4 years of age.The manufacturer recommends taking one pill daily. The Junior Center is free of dyes, does not contain gluten. They have pills lemon-raspberry flavor. The package contains 30 tablets or 60 tablets (depending on the chosen option). The cost for a smaller pack varies greatly depending on the pharmacy - it is equal to about PLN 18.
What do Centrum Junior tablets contain?
sweetener (xylitol), magnesium oxide, dicalcium phosphate, L-ascorbic acid (vitamin C), acidity regulator (E330), aroma, emulsifiers (E470b, E570), iron (II) fumarate, bulking agent (E460), palm oil , modified food starch, anti-caking agent (E551), DL-alpha-tocopheryl acetate (vitamin E), nicotinic acid amide, maltodextrin, zinc oxide, potassium chloride, calcium D-pantothenate, sweetener (E 591), starch, gelatin manganese sulfate, sucrose, thiamine mononitrate (vitamin B1), pyridoxine hydrochloride (vitamin B6), riboflavin (vitamin B2), retinyl acetate (vitamin A), pteroylmonoglutamic acid (folic acid), hydrogenated oil soybean, D-biotin, sodium selenate, antioxidant (E321), phylloquinone (vitamin K), cholecalciferol (vitamin D), cyanocobalamin (vitamin B12)

Pickup of children
Centrum Junior pills are sweet, children have no problem taking them, they suck in the mouth like candy. They are quite big, so you have to keep them in your mouth for a long time. They contain virtually all valuable vitamins and minerals, but not in an amount meeting 100% of the demand.
For example, vitamin D provides 60% of your daily requirement, and iron 32% - in theory, that's good, because the rest can be provided with food, and in the case of vitamin D, expose the skin to UV rays, but you have to remember that sometimes the composition may not be enough .
They are definitely not pills (because there are no such), which would release parents from the obligation to prepare varied, well-composed dishes. Also the manufacturer informs that the most important is the daily diet. And a plus for that.
