In each trimester of pregnancy the supply of vitamins and minerals is highly important. Foetal development is underway and this lays the foundation for the child's future health.
To support newborn babies, long chain polyunsaturated fatty acids (LC-PUFAs) and vitamin D play an important role. They contribute to healthy sensory and bone development.
Calcium, phosphorus, and vitamin D are important for teeth and bone development at this stage, and therefore should be included in infant nutrition.
Iodine, selenium, and vitamin B12 have several advantageous effects for children aged 6-9 months, especially for the brain and the immune system.
Special attention should be paid to vitamins A, C, and D at this developmental stage in an infant's life. They particularly affect eye and bone development.
Toddler development is influenced by numerous natural compounds. Vitamin C, zinc, fluoride, and the vitamin-B complex have been identified as especially important from a scientific point of view.
