Who can use it
Q. Do all growing children need nutritional supplementation?
A. No. Children and teens who get a healthy, balanced diet would not need extra nutrition. However, research suggests that with the busy lifestyles, small appetites, dietary restrictions and easy access to highly processed foods, many children could benefit from a purpose-designed nutritional supplement such as Zeapure.
Q. How do I know if my child needs nutrition supplements?
A. You know your child best. If aspects of your child’s development, energy levels or eating habits worry you, your child may benefit from consuming Zeapure to top up their nutritional intake. We recommend that if you have concerns about your child’s nutrition, consult your doctor or qualified dietician or nutritionist.
Q. Why can’t I just give my child products made for adults?
A. Zeapure is the only nutritional top-up made specifically to meet the typical nutritional shortfalls children and teens experience. A product formulated for adults may provide more of some nutrients and not enough of others your child needs.
Q. Can adults also drink Zeapure?
A. Yes, but Zeapure is specifically formulated to meet the needs of the 4-13 and 14-18 age groups respectively. Therefore, adults may find that it’s not 100% ideal for their needs.
Q. Can my kid have Zeapure if they’re under 4 years old?
A. We adhere to the Supplement Foods standards, so don’t recommend this. The products are formulated for children over the age of four years.
Q. Does Zeapure contain all the nutrients my kids need?
A. No. Zeapure is not a meal replacement. Zeapure has been formulated as a nutritional top-up to offset the nutrient shortfalls children and teens may experience.
