Garden of Life introduces Vitamin Code Kids
WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. Garden of Life has developed a chewable whole food multivitamin for kids that provides them with essential nutrients and minerals.
Vitamin Code Kids are cherry-berry chewables that contain 22 organically grown fruits and veggies to provide immune support, digestive health, support for growing bones, mental and physical energy, and eye health, Garden of Life said.
"Unfortunately, most kids’ multivitamins fall short of the nutritional standards parents set for their children. However, with this whole food multivitamin, I feel that all of the nutritional bases for kids are covered," said Jordan Rubin, Garden of Life’s founder and CEO. "With Vitamin Code Kids, there’s a 100% whole food multivitamin that parents can offer their kids with confidence because it will nourish the body and deliver nutrients as nature intended."
