When it comes to feeding our kids with the goal to keep them happy and healthy, there can be challenges.
All you toddler mom’s who have picky eaters, I can relate because I sure do! Ellie is the definition of picky! If you know your toddler isn’t eating optimally, you look for options to fill the gaps. Here’s a great way to make sure they get those essential nutrients every day! I was introduced to Incredivites.

Incredivites – the best kids vitamin in the world
While it’s optimal to strive for your child eating a healthy diet of fruits,vegetables, and healthy food from all the food groups, the reality is that we can fall short on busy days or with picky eaters. Filling in kids’ nutritional gaps with high-quality, food-based supplements makes sense.
Oh my picky eater! (Ellie takes after her daddy here.) She won’t try much at all and I worried big time about her getting the nutrients her body needed each day! It was always a fight and not fun for either of us 🙁
Her doctor gave us the go ahead at around one and a half years old to start her on Shaklee Incredivites chewable vitamins. She’s been taking 2 a day ever since! The only problem? She wouldn’t chew them! So we crush them up into her yogurt each morning & she takes them no problem. A win win for both of us. -Jessica

More About Lactoferrin
Lactoferrin is a unique part of the Incredivites formulation. It helps strengthen your child’s immune system and Shaklee’s Incredivites is the first children’s multi to contain this important immune-enhancing ingredient. Would you like to understand its role a little better?
Lactoferrin is an iron-containing protein found in breast milk that is very important in developing and strengthening your infant’s immune system. One reason is that iron is an absolutely essential nutrient for your child’s immune system, and lactoferrin is an easily absorbed form of iron. What’s really interesting is that there is a special transport system in the intestine for lactoferrin, which means the iron is better able to be absorbed.
A second way lactoferrin is good for your child’s immune system is that it increases the number of nutrient-absorbing cells in the intestine, so it helps the other nutrients that keep your little one healthy get absorbed better as well. The third point to understand about lactoferrin is that it suppresses the growth of bad bacteria in your child’s intestine. That is important because 80% of your immune system originates in the intestine.
Think about it this way: when the immune cells in the intestine have to spend their time fighting off bad bacteria, it interferes with them fighting off bacteria and viruses elsewhere in the body.
The reality of the world we live in is artificial colors, artificial flavors, processed foods, sugary drinks, fast food and preserved snack foods, and antibiotics. These are all challenges to the immune system and overall health. Having an immune builder like Lactoferrin available to help is pretty incredible!

More Healthy Tips for Toddlers
Being physically active is important for all of us: kids of all ages as well as adults. Making sure your toddler gets enough active play time, both indoors and outdoors is so beneficial to their health.
Good sleep is another thing to make a priority across all ages. Being short on sleep definitely impacts immune function and makes your toddler more susceptible to germs. Those night time snuggle and story sessions are not only good for your child to wind down (overstimulated kids have more difficulty falling asleep which can affect how they wake up in the morning) but they are good, calming sessions for you as well.
