The Importance of Calcium for Growing Kids

Calcium and vitamin D are two equally important nutrients that cannot be skipped at any cost. Intake of

milk with healthy sports drinks for kids makes a complete package and kids receive complete nutrition.

We are all aware of the fact that calcium is an essential need for our bones. Especially, when we talk

about growing children, the value of a calcium rich diet cannot be neglected. Growing bodies must be fed

with adequate amounts of calcium for good development and better strength. Lack of calcium in children's

diet can become one of the reasons for various health problems in future. Constantly growing bones in

young children and pre-teens makes calcium a mandate.

Calcium is a prime building block for strong, healthy bones. But, most of the kids ageing from 9 to 18 don't

get the recommended amounts of calcium per day. That is not surprising when most kids drink more soda

and caffeinated drinks compared to milk, which is one of the best sources of calcium. From infancy to

adolescence, this is one nutrient that kids simply cannot afford to miss.

Before we discuss in detail, the long lasting effects of calcium and how it helps us stay fit throughout our

lives, let’s discuss the effects of a low calcium diet.

At least 45% of a human body's total body mass is formed during adolescence. Therefore, children with

low calcium intake during their early years may be laying a poor foundation on which their strong bones

would be built in adulthood. This is because of the way our body regulates calcium. If there is little or no

calcium available to absorb in the digestive tract, the body will start using calcium from our bones,

eventually leaving the bones fragile and brittle at one point of time, leading to a disease known as

osteoporosis in future. Although this is a disease more prevalent in females, it is not an alien for males as

well. Fizzy drinks also add to the loss of bone health adding to the problems.

Helping Kids Build Strong Bones for a Better Future.

Now that we are aware of the problem, let’s focus on the solution. Healthy meals for kids are one

important aspect and the first step to solving this problem. What does a healthy meal comprise of is the

next question? Apart from all the food including green vegetables, cereals etc, there is one more thing

which if not consumed at least twice a day, will still hamper your bone health. This magic food is called

milk. Highly rich in calcium, milk forms the basis of healthy bones in children. But, there is one more thing

that people are generally unaware of. For proper absorption of calcium, there is a need of increased

vitamin D intake. Vitamin D is important for the absorption of calcium in the body.

Drinking only milk, cannot suffice the calcium needs completely. Energy drinks for kids play a major role.

Adding a spoonful of the best health drink for kids twice a day to the glass of milk, makes it more

wholesome. It not only adds the required vitamin D intake but also provides the body with extra calcium.

Another added advantage comes with taste. Availability of different flavours makes kids drink milk without

any fuss, which in itself is a huge relief.

So, with this in mind, grab your pack of health drinks and make sure you give your children two glasses of
