Developing proper eating habits in
kids is key to healthy growth.
According to the latest "Dietary Guidelines for Americans" from the U.S. Department of Agriculture, American children are missing out on five essential nutrients critical to growth and good health: calcium, fiber, magnesium, vitamin E, and potassium.
Why is calcium important to good health?
Calcium plays a key role in bone health, but perhaps more than that, calcium intake may be important in the regulation of both blood pressure and weight.
In addition to foods that are rich in calcium, such as milk, yogurt, cheese, kale and broccoli, one serving of BOOST® Kid Essentials Nutritionally Complete Drink provides kids with 30% of the daily value of calcium.
Plus, BOOST Kid Essentials Nutritionally Complete Drink chocolate flavor was preferred by kids in a head-to-head taste test with PediaSure®.1
