Buddy Bear: A Big Help from a Little Friend

Buddy BearLet’s be honest, very few six year olds take fiber, enzymes and fatty acids into consideration when weighing their snack options. And when it comes to taking care of constipation and nutrient absorption, well, forget about it. Those are pretty low on the importance list for your normal child. In fact, I doubt they’re even on there. But, all of those things are important. The American Heart Association recommends children between ages 1 and 3 get 19 grams of fiber a day, and that’s just fiber.

So, how do you make sure that even with all of the macaroni and cheese, hot dogs and pizza your child’s body continues to run smoothly? You could stick to the old methods: sneaking antioxidant-rich fruits and fiber-filled vegetables onto the dinner plate, convincing your little guy that the fiber cookie does not actually taste like cardboard (it just looks like it) and hiding any other necessary health aids in a cunningly disguised spoonful of ice cream. Or, you could take an easier route. ReNew Life has recently released Buddy Bear , a line of all-natural, chewable digestive supplements designed for children ages 2 to 12. There are five in all (Buddy Bear DHA, Buddy Bear Gentle Lax, Buddy Bear Digest, Buddy Bear Fiber and Buddy Bear Probiotic), each taking care of a specific digestive problem. The Probiotic helps keep the immune system strong while the DHA builds the brain’s and nervous system’s health. But the best part? These little bear-shaped tablets are flavored. That’s right, flavored. While your child is helping to ease his constipation, he’ll be chewing on Chocolate Cream. The cardboard taste that accompanies the fiber cookie has just been replaced by Very Cherry. So go ahead, help your little guy enjoy taking care of life’s little problems, but, as always, consult a doctor first.
