Young Children

Health and Illness

When kids are ill or feeling unwell, the last thing they feel like doing is eating a proper meal. Staying well hydrated is very important when your child is unwell. Health conditions or illnesses that cause vomiting and/or diarrhoea will cause dehydration due to the body losing fluids, so it is important to replace these fluids.

Here are some tips to help keep your kids stay well hydrated

For optimal recovery from illness, the body requires good nutrition for healing. A nutritional supplement may be recommended by your healthcare professional during times when your child’s appetite is low, to help rebuild strength and restore a healthy body.

Sustagen® Kid Essentials® is a nutritionally complete powdered supplement which is made up as a drink with water or milk, or can be added to food.
It contains protein, 27 essential vitamins and minerals, pre and probiotics, and comes in a great tasting vanilla flavour. For flavour variety, add your favourite fruits or toppings!
