Very Active Children
If your young child is especially active, it is important that he’s well-nourished. An active youngster may feel tired and sluggish if he isn’t getting the right combination of nutrients for his sustained energy requirements. The

following tips will insure that your active child is getting the right nutrients in the right amounts:
  • Your youngster should start each day with a healthy breakfast. After several overnight hours without food, he’ll need to refuel to replenish his energy stores.
  • Make sure your child is getting plenty of calcium each day to aid in bone formation. Without adequate calcium in her diet, your active youngster’s body will pull it from bone deposits to use for nerve and muscle cell functioning. This can have a negative effect on bone density later in your child’s life.
  • Provide morning and afternoon snacks. Active kids should eat often to keep up energy levels. Snacks are just as important as main meals in insuring adequate nutrient intake. A 3-oz. serving of Pediagro is a perfect morning or afternoon snack.
  • Insure that your child’s lunch and dinner meals provide protein for growth and carbohydrates for energy.
  • Your active youngster should stay well-hydrated. Children aren’t able to regulate their body temperatures as well as adults. Keep plenty of water and sports drinks on hand, and be sure your child is well-hydrated before, during and after physical activity. Pediagro can also be used as a micro re-hydration resource.
