Vitamin A: an important nutrient for promoting vision and immune system health.


B Vitamins: a group of vitamins that aid metabolism, energy production and healthy circulatory and nervous systems.


Vitamin C: a superstar vitamin known for maintaining healthy bones, teeth and skin; keeps blood vessels strong and speeds up the wound healing process.


Calcium: a mineral that works hard to keep growing bones healthy and strong.


Vitamin D: a highly regarded vitamin that helps to absorb calcium; improves dental and bone health.  


Vitamin E: an essential vitamin that protects cells and tissues from damage; helps promote the formation of red blood cells.


Fiber: a nutrient that supports a healthy digestive system. Along with adequate fluid intake, fiber helps move food efficiently through the body.


Iron: a vital nutrient that fights fatigue and helps build and maintain healthy blood. Without enough iron, children and teens will lack the energy needed for high-impact activities such as back-to-school sports.
