Blackmores Superkids® Immune Chewables contain a daily boost of 5 essential nutrients including vitamin A, C, D, E & zinc.

Why use

There are some key nutrients to help support kids’ immune health.Zinc is a factor in the maintenance of general well-being and helps to support normal immune function. 

Vitamin C is known for its role in immune function. Ascorbic acid is required for normal functioning of the immune system.
 
Vitamin C is widely found in fruits and vegetables. Good sources include blackcurrants, guava, citrus and kiwi fruit and vegetables such as broccoli, capsicum and sprouts. However, research undertaken in 2014-15 found that only one in twenty (5.1%) of Australian children were meeting the minimum number of serves of fruit and vegetables each day*. 

Vitamin D contributes to normal function of the immune system. Vitamin D is found in a limited range of foods. A more active form of the vitamin is produced from skin exposure to sunlight. Regular sun exposure can provide all the vitamin D a growing child requires however, the safe exposure time for children is unknown.

Vitamin E is required for normal immune system function and Beta carotene (pro vitamin A) directly and indirectly supports immune function.

The Blackmores difference

Kids naturally enjoy a sweet taste but we all know that sugar isn’t good for a growing kid’s teeth or body.

Blackmores Superkids® Immune Chewables are sweetened with xylitol and sorbitol - naturally derived sweeteners from natural carbohydrate sources and also stevia – from the leaves of the stevia plant.  
 
Blackmores Superkids® Immune Chewables have no added artificial flavours and colours. We use natural orange flavour to deliver a delicious tasting immune chewable supplement.

Just wondering if you have any old stock available of the previous immunity vitamins? I don't buy gummy vitamins as they are not good for their teeth but the chewable ones were amazing so would love to get some more before they run out!
