Processed, man-made carbs offer little in terms of nutrition and are broken down, digested and used very fast by our bodies. Eating these carbs will give a temporary burst of energy, but soon after we feel tired or hungry again.

Why must my child take supplements if the programme is “healthy and balanced”?

Poor soil conditions as well as processing, transport and storage of food often lead to less nutrient-dense products; therefore we are making sure that there no nutrient deficiencies and that normal growth and development can progress. Furthermore, supplements give you a bit of flexibility – then you not need to worry about fuzzy eaters and if all the micronutrients are taken in or not!
