Keeping kids healthy can be a worry, especially when they’re reluctant to eat their greens and it’s a struggle to prise them away from their screens.


It’s important to encourage kids to exercise and to eat a healthy, balanced diet, but we know that can be easier said than done.


Vitamin and microbiome supplements can give you a little extra reassurance that you’re looking after your kids’ health; with Garden of Life, you can be sure that every wholefood ingredient is traceable back to the seed or soil it grew from, giving you peace of mind that your kids are getting the good stuff.


Always check with your GP before you try any new supplements with your child, take care to never exceed the recommended dose and keep products out of reach of children at all times.


Here are our top five supplements for children to help keep your little ones healthy:

1. Organic Kids Multivitamin Powder


Using supplements with your kids from a young age can help to promote good nutrition and support their bodies to develop and grow healthily.


Our Organic Kids Multivitamin Powder is designed to be used with toddlers aged 1+ who are already eating foods.



Containing 15 essential vitamins and minerals derived from whole food sources, this multivitamin powder is designed to be mixed into juice or food. Use one scoop a day with your child and ensure the powder is mixed in thoroughly before serving.


Organics Kids Multivitamin Powder includes essential vitamins for toddlers and kids, including vitamins A, B6, C, D, E, folate, magnesium and more. Vitamin D can play a key role in supporting normal growth and bone development in children.

2. Kids Probiotic Gummies


Gummy tablets are a fun, easy way for kids to get their vitamins, and our Kids Probiotic Gummies are a great option for children aged 4+.



These cherry-flavoured, sugar-free, vegetarian gummy supplements contain 3 billion CFU to provide kids aged 4+ with a diverse mix of live bacteria to help support their digestive health. Gut health plays an important role in regulating immune health too, with 70-80% of a person’s immune system housed in their gut.

3. Kids Elderberry Syrup


It’s not always easy to get kids to take chewable tablets, but syrup can be much easier for them to swallow, especially when it’s deliciously flavoured.


Our Garden of Life Kids Elderberry Syrup is designed to help support children’s immune health, alongside a balanced diet and wider healthy lifestyle.



This elderberry-flavoured syrup also contains vitamin C from wholefoods and aronia berries, which are also known as chokeberries and are naturally rich in antioxidants.


Our Kids Elderberry Syrup is designed for children aged 4+, with the recommended dosage 4ml (approx.1 tsp a day), to be taken under adult supervision.

4. Brain Health Organic Attention/Focus Kids Chewables


Children go through huge changes every few weeks while they’re growing, and Dr Formulated Brain Health Organic Attention/Focus Kids Chewables are designed to support their ever-changing needs while they continue to grow and develop.



These chewable microbiome supplements are designed for children aged 4+ and contain 10 billion CFU of live bacteria, including Lactobillus rhamnosus GG, which is one the most studied live bacteria strains. Vitamin C, vitamin D3 and organic wild blueberries are also key ingredients.

5. Microbiome Organics Kids Chewables


Flavoured chewable supplements can be a more appealing way for kids to take their vitamins, and our Microbiome Organic Kids Chewables are available in tasty Berry Cherry and Strawberry Banana flavours.



These children’s microbiome supplements are gluten-free, dairy-free and soy-free and contain wholefood vitamin C, which can contribute to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue, alongside contributing to the normal function of the immune system.


Microbiome Organic Kids Chewables also contain 14 different live bacteria strains to help promote immune system and digestive health in children.
