Chewable Calcium to Promote Strong Teeth and Bones in Children
Carlson for Kids Chewable Calcium is a tasty vanilla tablet providing 250 mg of calcium, which is necessary for strong bones and teeth.
Children need calcium for healthy bone growth, as well as strong teeth and muscles.
A calcium deficiency may affect your child's present bone growth and contribute to weak bones later in life.
If your child has a poor appetite, is very fussy about food, has a food allergy, or is on a restricted diet, such as a vegan diet, a calcium supplement like Carlson for Kids Chewable Calcium may help.
It is important to appreciate how much calcium your child requires each day.
According to the Office of Dietary Supplements, the daily recommended intake of calcium for children is as follows:
- 0-6 months, 200 mg
- 7-12 months, 260 mg
- 1-3 years, 700 mg
- 4-8 years, 1,000 mg
- 9-13 years, 1,300 mg
- 14-18 years, 1,300 mg
It is also important to be aware that your child's body may not be able to absorb more than 500 mg of calcium at one time.
