Appropriate Vitamins for 6 years old
 
Hello everyone, what vitamins would you recommend to my six year old boy. I want my child to be jolly in school as well as here in our house. I lately observed that he is always dizzy and it seems very tired when ever he got's home from school. I always ask him if her teacher gives a lot of activities in school but he says, It's not that many. As a parent, I want him to be active all the time.

No, he doesn't have any medications.

Well I would consult your doctor but generally as long as the child eats healthy and well a multivitamin will do.
Are you trying to treat adhd or something>

I just gave mine a gummy multi vitamin for kids, and DRINK WATER. You would be amazed how many kids are walking around dehydrated.

Vitamins can't help with ADHD, but taking the listed children's doses of the kind of children's vitamins sold in ordinary stores won't harm him.

Never give your child any vitamin besides a plain drugstore multivitamin unless a conventional doctor has told you that you have to. Vitamins in inappropriate doses can be harmful, and it isn't OK to give them just in case - except for that standard multi.

Lots of water or unsweetened herbal tea like peppermint. Any multivitamin that is specifically for children. Omega 3 might also help. Apart from supplements (check if your multivitamin contains omega 3 so you don't give more than the recommended dose). Also oily fish and flax seeds are good sources of omega 3.

Apart from that even children can't be active all the time. Maybe school is just too tiring and he needs a bit of rest. How does he sleep at night?

If you think.he's abnormally tired go to your gp. Else allow him to rest and relax for a while after school

Just read your post again. If he's feeling dizzy then definitely take him to the gp to rule out any medical causes.
