Child Supplements Market Research

by Global Market Research Analyst

Minerals and vitamins are essential for growth and development in children. The majority of children who consume a balanced diet don't need vitamin or mineral supplements. In some cases, however, children are at risk for deficiencies and may require additional vitamins. Vegetarians and vegans may need to supplement with vitamin B12 since dietary sources of this vitamin are limited to animal-based foods. There is a higher risk for nutritional deficiencies among children with celiac disease.

 In addition, children who have a poor appetite, drink a lot of sugar-sweetened beverages, take certain medications, or have chronic medical conditions that interfere with intake may need supplements. According to the market database, since 2010, the market for children's supplements has grown significantly, along with the dietary supplements market. There is a growing interest of consumers in using supplements to enhance their daily diet. For children, parents tend to focus on general health, immunity, closing nutritional gaps, and boosting cognitive development.

Recently, Fermentalg has obtained permission to use its omega-3-rich Schizochytrium oil in infant formula, food supplements, and follow-on formula. The oil has been declared safe for use in food supplements at a maximum Docosahexaenoic Acid (DHA) level of one gram per day (g/day) in the Official Journal of the European Union. Despite the lack of conclusive findings regarding the levels of oil used in infants and follow-on formula, the European Commission (EC) approved using oil from strain FCC-3204 under-evaluated conditions of use.

As with Fermentalg, DSM has received permission to use Schizochytrium oil for supplements, infant and sports nutrition products. Its involvement with algae-derived omega-3 oil began in 2013 when it launched its own algae-derived DHA product range, Life's DHA. The companies offer oil strains suitable for dietary supplements, infant formula, medical foods, and weight-loss products.
