Give your children the best
THE Nutrition Survey of Malaysian Children (SEANUTS Malaysia) was carried out to comprehensively assess the nutritional status of Malaysian children. It unveiled some unexpected results – almost half of the children are vitamin D-deficient.
The reasons for vitamin D deficiency could be low dietary intake of vitamin D and calcium as well as lack of sun exposure among urban children.
Vitamin D3 or cholecalciferol is formed in the body when the skin synthesises sunlight on its surface. Staying indoors most of the time could lead to deficiency in this sunshine vitamin and a possible negative impact on bone growth.
Children should have a balance of dietary energy intake and regular physical activities. To maximise height growth, achieving healthy muscles and bone structure is necessary through adequate intakes of protein, calcium and vitamin D3.
Histidine, leucine and lysine are three specific essential amino acids required to produce growth hormones in the body. A combination of calcium, protein, vitamin D3 and magnesium would produce higher bone density and structure for optimal growth.
These are the health claims allowed on food products by the Health Ministry:
Protein is essential for growth and development
Calcium aids in the development of strong bones and teeth
Magnesium promotes calcium absorption and retention
Vitamin D helps the body utilise calcium and phosphorus
