AdVital Range

Why is AdVital not suitable for children under 3 years of age unless under medical supervision?2020-06-01T15:16:19+10:00

The nutritional profile of products in the AdVital range were primarily designed to meet the nutritional requirements of adults (which under the FSANZ Food Standards Code refers collectively to everyone over the age of 3 years). There is nothing about the products in the AdVital that makes them unsuitable for children 1-3 years old, however the FSANZ Food Standards Code requires a Dietitian to formally assess the child’s nutritional requirements against the energy, protein, and vitamin/mineral content of the AdVital products and then make dietary recommendations accordingly.
