Boost your child’s immunity for the new school year with NutriPure Kids range of gummy vitamins

The new school year usually brings about a mix of emotions for parents and children. Excitement, anxiety, apprehension, and relief are just some of the feelings that come into play this time of the year. And while it’s normal for a new school year to be met with a little bit of anxiety, the experiences of the past two years have resulted in heightened anxiety among a lot of families. 

The pandemic has put the schooling system, teachers, and families under immense pressure, with fewer school days each year, virtual learning, and more work to cover in a shorter amount of time. Children haven’t been able to spend time with their friends, their sports and recreation clubs were cancelled and they have had to spend more time cooped up at home than ever before. That’s a lot for any adult to deal with, so imagine how big of an effect it has on a child! 

With the new school year in full swing, it’s important to ensure that children are getting all the nutrients they need to function optimally while navigating the demands of the school year. Good nutrition, exercise, and naturally sourced supplements can help support focus, brain function, attention span, energy levels, and mental wellbeing.

There’s an important factor to consider now that the kids are back in the classroom, and that is their immunity. Due to their young immune systems and their proximity to one another, children are prone to picking up colds and flu. With the added threat of Covid-19, it’s important to ensure that their immune systems are geared up to fight off whatever viruses they may be exposed to. Some of the most important nutrients they will need, include:

Vitamin C

Vitamin C is a nutritional multi-tasker, responsible for everything from the development of healthy bones and teeth, wound healing, collagen production, and supporting the nervous system. It’s also one of the most important nutrients for one’s overall health. It is a powerful antioxidant that can boost a child’s immunity and help the body fight off viruses. 

Vitamin D

Vitamin D is an important nutrient for bone and muscle health, as it helps the body absorb calcium and phosphate, which are both essential for strong bones. Recent studies have also shown that this vitamin plays a major role in building and maintaining a child’s immune system and protecting them against colds and flu.

Vitamin B12

Vitamin B12 is essential for maintaining the health of blood cells and nerves and also promotes healthy growth. It also supports the normal functioning of the immune system.


Probiotics promote healthy gut bacteria, which aids absorption of nutrients and support the body’s digestive functions. They also help fight off “bad bacteria” in the stomach, which can lead to diarrhoea and other gastrointestinal problems. 

Supplements are not a substitute for a balanced diet, and should only be used to top up any nutrient shortfalls in people’s diets.

Help boost your child’s immunity with a good quality supplement that is free from preservatives and artificial additives. NutriPure’s range of gummies makes it easy and fun for kids to get their vitamins and minerals:
