The Department of Health & NHS vitamin recommendations for babies & children

Memoraid kids vitamin D3 and vitamin C drops provide the Department of Health recommended vitamins; vitamin D3 and vitamin C. Both vitamin D3 and vitamin C are important for supporting your child’s IMMUNE system.

Growing children, especially those who do not eat a varied diet, sometimes don't get enough vitamins D and C (source NHS.co.uk). On this basis, the Department of Health advises for babies and children to take supplements to support their diet and ensure they get the right daily amount of vitamins.

The Department of Health recommends that all children aged 6 months to 5 years are given vitamin supplements containing vitamins A, C and D every day. Source NHS.co.uk

The Department of Health also recommends that:

  • Babies from birth to 1 year of age who are being breastfed should be given a daily supplement containing 8.5 to 10 micrograms (µg) of vitamin D to make sure they get enough. This is whether or not you're taking a supplement containing vitamin D yourself.
  • Babies fed infant formula shouldn't be given a vitamin D supplement if they're having more than 500ml (about a pint) of infant formula a day, because infant formula is fortified with vitamin D and other nutrients.
  • Children aged 1 to 4 years old should be given a daily supplement containing 10µg of vitamin D.
