I also feel that supplement use by chldren is inappropriate. Only if it has been determined by a physician or dietician that the child needs assistance in overcoming a deficiency would I consider such a choice. I do know that future dietary choices are extremely influenced by those choices made for children in their homes while growing up. It is very important for parents to provide sound dietary guidance during a child’s developmental years. Parents that are uncertain about how to provide this guidance should consult a registered dietician.
