Hello Meilinda, Thank you for the question.
Good nutrition is needed by everyone including children to help maintain a healthy body and help the child's growth and development. In order for children to get good nutrition, you are advised to provide a variety of foods that contain various nutrients including carbohydrates, proteins, fats, and vitamins and minerals (can be obtained from vegetables, fruits, and nuts). If you can maintain a complete and balanced diet of food for your child, vitamin supplements are not needed. Before giving any vitamin supplements, you should consult with a pediatrician first. The doctor will ask about the child's eating patterns so far, the child's activities, growth and development of the child, and the child's health history to determine whether nutritional needs are fulfilled. The doctor will also do a physical examination on your child to assess whether your child has certain health problems. If the doctor considers that from the child's diet, nutritional adequacy is maintained and the child does not experience certain health problems, then usually the provision of vitamin supplements for children is not needed. unless your doctor suspects that your child is deficient in certain vitamins or nutrients.
In addition, to take care of your child's health, the following tips can help:
make sure the child is getting enough rest at night
provide enough drink intake for children
let the child stay active in sports. You can also invite children to exercise together for example walking in the morning together
avoid children from people who are sick
make it a habit for children to always keep their hands clean
always maintain the cleanliness of the home and bedroom of children, including changing sheets, pillowcases and bolsters, and blankets regularly
