3 Recommended Supplements for Children to Avoid Getting Sick Easily

Dream - Child nutrition is very important to fulfill in order for children to grow and develop optimally. Sahabat Dream can fulfill it by providing various sources of healthy food.

Apart from that, children can also consume additional supplements to fulfill their nutritional needs. Especially if Sahabat Dream has a history of vitamin deficiency or specific mineral deficiency. Children do not have to consume all types of supplements. Just a few of them that are truly needed. Parents can have their children's vitamin or nutrient levels tested in a laboratory and consult a doctor about their supplement needs. Regardless of that, find out the recommended supplements to be given to children according to Pediatric Specialist, Mesty Ariotedjo, as follows.

<b>1. Vitamin D</b>

1. Vitamin D

If a child rarely engages in outdoor activities and is not exposed to sunlight and often wears covered clothing, try consuming vitamin D supplements to meet their nutritional needs. Vitamin D itself is needed to maintain bone health and immune system.

"IDAI recommends the provision of vitamin D supplementation since birth, including for breastfed babies because it turns out that 1 out of 2 children in Indonesia are deficient in vitamin D. Studies have shown that vitamin D deficiency is associated with recurrent coughs and colds as well as urinary tract infections (UTIs)."
"ungkap Mesty." translates to "revealed Mesty."

Friend Dream can provide 400 IU of vitamin D per day for children under 1 year old. Meanwhile, children over 1 year old to adults, as well as pregnant or breastfeeding mothers, are recommended to consume 600 IU of vitamin D per day.

2. Iron

2. Iron

Iron supplements are also important to consume since the child is 4 months old, especially for babies who are exclusively breastfed. This is because the iron levels in breast milk will gradually decrease, so you need to fulfill it by consuming supplements.

Consuming iron supplements alone has a significant impact on brain development. According to Mesty, iron deficiency is associated with the risk of speech delay, ADHD, and delayed fine motor development. The iron levels given to children can be adjusted according to their age and weight. If necessary, consult a pediatrician to ensure the appropriate dosage.

3. Vitamin A

Give vitamin A supplements to children every 6 months starting at the age of 6 months. Deficiency of vitamin A is associated with measles, diarrhea, and upper respiratory tract infections (URTI). Vitamin A supplements can be given once at the age of 6-11 months with a dose of 100,000 IU. Meanwhile, children aged 12-59 months can be given vitamin A supplements with a dose of 200,000 IU every 6 months in February and August.
