My short answer: The one your child tolerates well and you can afford.
My favorite brands and websites:
Others international parents utilize frequently and recommend:
iherb and their own country designation.
How do I get my child to take these supplements?
The most important thing in my opinion is to explain to our children why they need these supplements.
If you can explain to your child in a age-appropriate way that these supplements are part of helping their bodies heal, you have created a willingness to participate. If you demonstrate taking supplements, you're leading by example.
If your child can't swallow pills yet, giving them liquid forms of supplements or supplements mixed into foods they like (fruit puree, home made energy balls, yogurt), is an option.
How am I going to give the night time doses?
Do dry runs where you practice just giving a sip of water or a magnesium dose and they go back to sleep. You are getting them ussed to accept this new routine. The most important part, as with teaching pill swallowing or giving supplements during the day or any other skill we teach to another person, is to stay calm.
Do we need to follow a specific diet?
No, only if the diet brings clear benefits. Diet's greek root word means "lifestyle" and is aboupt more than eating food or losing weight.
Having said that, a whole foods based diet, as organic as possible, is conducive to healing in my opinion. A well done elimination diet can help lower inflammation in the body.
