Do you have an active child or a picky eater? Are you concerned whether your little one is getting the nutrition that they need?
So many of us have experienced that kiddo who only wants to eat plain pasta with cheese for dinner every night and, in turn, wondered how we can ensure they’re still getting the important nutrients that contribute to their mental and physical health, growth and immunity.
Is your child getting enough protein?
A well-balanced diet is fundamental in helping children grow and develop at the appropriate rate through each stage of life. Children need a positive energy balance and the correct range of nutrients to support their immune system and promote overall wellbeing. Establishing healthy eating habits early in life will help children to eat well and reduce their risk of chronic disease when they become adults.
Nutreat Pro40 can provide a quick and easy way to help fill the gaps you might be worried about in your child’s every day diet. For children following a specialised diet including vegetarian or vegan diets, for fussy eaters who just flat out refuse to eat meat, or parents looking for peace of mind that their children are getting all the vitamins and nutrients they need to grow up healthy and strong, having a Pro40 smoothie or shake can help them to meet their protein requirements.
Nutreat Pro40 is also temperature stable so can be added to either hot or cold foods and drinks and won’t change the taste!
Protein for healthy growth and development
Protein is an essential macronutrient vital for brain development, organ function, muscle growth and repair and maintaining a healthy immune system. Obtaining adequate protein is particularly important throughout infancy, childhood and adolescence due to the demands of growth and development.
Both the quality and quantity of protein are important to meet the needs of children during childhood and adolescence. Animal-rich protein sources include eggs, dairy products (milk, cheese, yoghurt), poultry, fish, and beef which can ensure that a child gets nutrients including iron, zinc, vitamin B12, calcium, and omega-3 fatty acids. Protein-rich plant foods including tofu, lentils, legumes, nuts, seeds, nut butters, quinoa and brown rice, can contribute to total protein intake and can increase children’s dietary fibre intake.

Protein supplementation for families
Did you know many protein powders on the market are unsuitable for children as they contain sweeteners, fillers, additives and stimulants?
Nutreat Pro40 is a natural, easily digestible protein-based nutrition supplement free from unnecessary fillers, gluten, caffeine, additives and extras and provides all of the essential amino acids that the body needs for optimum health.
Some protein powders provide 80 grams of protein per serving. This is considerably more than a growing child needs in one day, let alone in one serving! One serve of Nutreat Pro40 (40 grams) provides 16 grams of complete protein (the equivalent of 3 medium sized eggs) and 20 essential vitamins and minerals to assist with meeting nutrition requirements.
Fill the gaps in your child’s diet
If you have an active child, picky eater or are concerned whether your child is getting the nutrition that they need, Nutreat Pro40 can provide a quick and easy way to help fill those gaps and can be added to a wide range of hot and cold food and drinks with a neutral flavour that won’t change the taste. Simple!
