Better nutrition for stronger immunity or Laban ng Katawan and development can lead to better performance. A Batang may Laban has less sick days and more time for study and play. They are less likely to repeat a grade level and 4-5x likely to stay in school, further increasing their confidence to continue their overall development.(1,2) These will open more opportunities for them later on. Also, studies show that close to 80% of healthy children continue to be healthy adults in the future.
Good nutrition can prevent and shorten the course of common childhood diseases such as pneumonia and diarrhea.(2,4) But important nutrients might not be present or enough in the food they eat every day. This is why we need to supplement their diet with Bonakid Pre-School® 3+, which has the Triple Boost Formula that enhances immunity, promotes growth and provides energy to help support the nutritional needs of a Batang may Laban, aged 3 years old and above. Bonakid Pre-School® 3+ contains high levels of vitamins A, D, E and C, delivered within two servings of milk (together with a varied, balanced diet and healthy lifestyle). Bonakid Pre-School® 3+ is also a source of Zinc, Selenium, Carotenes and Lutein.
These vitamins and minerals enhance overall immune function.(5) Lutein and Carotenes act as antioxidants, helping eliminate toxins that can accumulate in the body during its fight against diseases, allowing faster recovery from illness, para tuloy ang activities, tuloy ang laban.(5,6,7) Other nutrients included in the Triple Boost Formula promote growth and give the energy they need to help them perform better, and achieve the goals they have set. All these, make the Triple Boost Formula an essential part of a child’s overall development, boosting their chances of success in life.
