During the summer holidays, we tend to relax the rhythm. Bedtimes are very often delayed, and naps are gladly shortened to enjoy leisure activities. This is quite possible, but it is important to ensure that despite this time difference, your child has real full nights of sleep. This is the key to their overall health! Between nine and 12 hours of sleep are needed for a restful night, depending on age and needs.
Certain plant-based active ingredients are known to promote falling asleep and prevent nocturnal awakenings, such as Lemon Balm. Syrups with gentle and soothing formulas containing Lavender, Chamomile, Marjoram and Hawthorn are ideal for helping children regain quality sleep and maintain alertness during the day.
During summer, balanced meals, rich in essential nutrients, remain vital to stay in shape.
We tend to relax the pressure on food during the holidays. It’s perfectly healthy to allow more regular treats during the holidays, but make sure your child has all the nutrients he or she needs to thrive.
Perfectly suited to young children, syrups combining plant extracts, vitamins, and minerals are wholly recommended to optimise the intake of micronutrients essential for proper body functioning and overall balance. For example, Vitamins Pro-A, E, C, D, B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B8, B9, B12, Copper, Molybdenum, Selenium and Iodine each contribute to energy metabolism, mental function, and the immune system.
Another alternative for children is vitamin gummies. Playful and practical, they are perfectly suited starting at three years old. Choose gummies combining Vitamins and Minerals such as Vitamins A, C, E, K, B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B8, B9, B12, Selenium and Zinc. They will support the proper functioning of the immune system and help reduce fatigue. Always try to select ones without gelatine, preservatives, gluten, lactose, or artificial flavours or colourings.
After overcoming spring fatigue, the “long-awaited” holiday period is the subject of a delicate balance between rest and activities. So, we recharge our batteries a little more, and we relax!
