Dietary supplement use in children

This article was originally published in The Tan Sheet

Executive Summary

Children ages two to nine who routinely take supplements have higher caloric, protein, total fat, carbohydrate, fiber and macronutrient intakes than those who do not consume any supplements at all, according to data gathered from Continuing Survey for Food Intakes by Individuals (CSFII) in 1994-1996 and 1998. Approximately 40.5% of two- and three-year-olds use supplements daily, Sedigheh Yamini, USDA, et al., determine, as do 38% and 25% of four- to six-year-olds and seven- to nine-year-olds, respectively. Abstract suggests further research is needed to examine "multiple factors related to dietary quality and vitamin supplement use in children"
