As a mother of the four beautiful kids in the pic to your left, I am a little ashamed to admit that I have not always been very conscientious when it came to making healthy food choices for my kids. There was a time when we consumed a lot of processed foods, as well as foods high in sugar and fat…and they were not the ones doing the grocery shopping! Well, we have wised up over the last couple of years, and as a family, are very engaged in making deliberately healthy food and nutrition choices most of the time. Don’t get me wrong, we have an occasional ‘bad day’ where we have found ourselves giving in to temptation, and indulging in something that has no health benefits whatsoever. But overall, we are definitely headed in the right direction.
Many of you know that in addition to making healthier choices in our diet, my family uses the Vemma Liquid Nutritional Supplement as well to help fill in the gaps left by deficient foods and less than exemplary processing and packaging. We understand that even with the choices we make to eat better and provide our family with healthier food options, supplementation is a must. With this in mind, I wanted to share some information with you about Vemma Next, the supplement for kids ages 2-12. I truly believe that what we do know and what we don’t can help or hurt us. This is something that, if you have children in this age group, will definitely help you!
Things You Didn’t Know!
Today, children’s nutritional health is being impacted more than ever. Many children have poor eating habits, often eating junk foods and skipping meals; the result is a severely depleted nutritional intake. Vemma NEXT can give parents peace of mind with an enhanced full spectrum of vitamins, antioxidants and over 65 plant-sourced minerals. Below is just a few of the reasons Vemma NEXT was created:
▪ A recent study showed that 20% of four-year olds are obese. 1
▪ The Kaiser Family Foundation found that more than a third of children and teen ads featured candy and snacks. 2
▪ A considerable number of children drastically under-consume vitamin C, fruits and vegetables. 3
▪ According to a recent article, 40% of infants and toddlers had vitamin D levels below those optimal for bone health. 4
▪ By the age of three, a child’s brain is twice as active as an adult’s. 5

I have seen the overall health of our children improve with the introduction of the Vemma product line into our daily lives. My 3-year-old niece, JoElle has been drinking Vemma since she was 15 months old, and recently tested at a 2nd grade level in multiple areas of cognitive development. Here’s a video of her beneath the picture 😀 (You have to watch! She is ADORABLE!!)
My own daughter is able to focus and retain information a lot better when she takes her Next, as opposed to when she forgets. And the kid has not been sick a single day since she began taking this on a daily basis. This past winter we were able to clean EVERY over the counter medicine that we had out of our cabinets and put them in a box in the basement! We simply didn’t need them and have not needed to go dig them out. 😀
With Vemma NEXT, the goal is to intervene and improve the alarming child nutrition statistics above, while aiding in brain development during these crucial years, as well as improving the overall health and well-being of our children. We hope you become as excited as we are to help shape the future of the NEXT Generation. You can view the Vemma NEXT product comparison by clicking the link below!
