Are Your Kids’ Diets Lacking in Nutrients?
Every day, many parents around the world work hard to provide their children with healthy diets, full of vitamins and minerals. But have you ever analyzed your children’s daily intake to see what they might be lacking? While the Institute of Medicine has provided the RDA (recommended daily allowance), studies have shown that the RDA should only be seen as a minimum and not as the end-all-be-all goal for healthy adults and children.
One mom, who diligently provides organic meals to her children, sent us an eye-opening report on the nutrients her children take in through their foods because she was surprised at how little vitamins A, B, C, D and E they were getting as well as iron, magnesium, potassium, zinc, and copper from what she thought was a pretty healthy, average diet.
The blue chart (below) shows what the children ate on an average day, based on a breakfast of eggs, strawberries and buttered toast with milk, a lunch of sandwiches and nectarines, and a chicken dinner with avocado and rice with crackers for snack and another cup of milk with dinner.
The food listed in the blue chart (above) equates to the following intake of vitamins for the day (below).
As you can see, the children had a pretty well-rounded diet, not a lot of processed foods or sugars, and while they got a good amount of minerals, they still ended up deficient in Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin D, Vitamin E, Thiamin, Riboflavin, Niacin, Vitamin B6, and Vitamin B12 which agrees with the research provided in the video below by Hardy Nutritionals® founder and nutrition expert, David Hardy.
Another mom recently sent us the nutrition info for her family’s average daily intake, and while it is mainly raw and loaded with fruits and veggies, it still lacks in important vitamins and minerals:
This balanced, healthy diet is still lacking in Vitamin D, Thiamin, Niacin, Vitamin B6, Vitamin B12, Pantothenic Acid, Iron, Copper and Zinc–and that is just according to the MINIMUM daily recommended intake.
Science has shown that a lack of vitamins and minerals can severely affect overall health, including mood and mental health. In the video above, David Hardy, founder of Hardy Nutritionals® shares how important the proper levels of nutrient intake can be for preventing disease:
Hardy Nutritionals® offers two highly bioavailable (absorbable) daily supplements for adults and children which can help fill in the blanks. Daily Self Defense, just $1.30 per day, provides all the lacking nutrients and more at levels science has repeatedly and recently shown as beneficial for mood stability, sleep quality, and overall well-being.

Hardy Nutritionals® also offers a more potent, clinical supplement called Daily Essential Nutrients, which is backed by nearly 30 medical journal publications because of the effectiveness of the balance and level of ingredients against many health concerns.

If you are like many parents who are struggling to provide all the required nutrients to your children each day, despite a healthy diet, Hardy Nutritionals® supplements could be worth looking into. Before trying these supplements, you may want to read these reviews by doctors and customers who use them on a daily basis.
Recently, micronutrients were studied for ADHD and the results were astounding. Watch as Dr. Heather Gordon and Dr. Julia Rucklidge share study results and patients share their experiences:
This Modern Living with Kathy Ireland® episode featured micronutrients for mental health and includes interviews with psychiatrists in the U.S. who prescribe Daily Essential Nutrients to patients:
