What are Wellkid Vitamin D Soft Jellies?

Wellkid Vitamin D Soft Jellies are a Vitamin D supplement for kids. Flavoured with a natural strawberry flavour and are suitable for vegans.

These tasty chewy jellies come shaped as popular TV characters including Peppa Pig (400 IU) for ages 3 to 7, and Captain America’s shield (500 IU) for ages 7 to 11.

Vitamin D is vital for the development of bones and for contributing to the normal function of the immune system, and is crucial for developing strong bones..

A lack of Vitamin D can result in rickets in children, as well as a lack of bone density in adults which may cause falls and even bone fractures.

Vitamin D is also thought to prevent some diseases such as the flu, multiple sclerosis, heart disease and depression.

Most vitamin D is acquired from the sun or fortified foods

There are a few foods which contain vitamin D, such as:

  • Fish (salmon, mackerel, sardines)
  • Red meet (beef, lamb)
  • Liver
  • Egg yolks

Some foods may be fortified with vitamin D, such as spreads, cereals and plant-based milk substitutes, such as soya milk.

During colder months (October – March), we may need to take a Vitamin D supplement as we are probably not getting enough Vitamin D from sunlight. In this circumstance, a Vitamin D supplement can give the body the necessary amount of Vitamin D it needs to keep healthy.

Some studies suggest that there are some people, such as people with dark skin, who may not be getting enough Vitamin D during the summer and should therefore think about taking a Vitamin D supplement all year round.

It’s also recommended that children aged 1 to 4 should have a Vitamin D supplement all year round. Babies that drink formula will not need additional supplements as formula is already fortified.


How do I take Wellkid Vitamin D Soft Jellies?

One Wellkid Vitamin D Soft Jelly should be taken each day. Do not eat more than one a day.

They are not intended to be taken whole like a regular tablet. The jellies are soft, chewable and flavoured with a natural strawberry flavour.
