Yes, whole foods and balanced diets offer the best source of vitamins and minerals. But with busy schedules, picky children, and constant parenting fatigue….it’s hard to eat enough healthy foods, or the right variety of healthy foods -especially if we just end up eating all the food our kids are wasting!!
A daily dietary supplement might be the right choice to help make up for deficiencies, but also know that you can’t skip all your nutrients and hope to only get them in a pill.
And for weight loss supplements: There are plenty of great products and systems & support out there, but be cautious and remember there are no magic pills!! Weight loss is simple: burn more calories than you consume. If you want to shed pounds you’ll need to eat a healthy diet and exercise.
There are some great systems, companies, products, etc. that can help with giving you the additional support you might need.

I still like the food pyramids (and there are several out there) but they are a basic and simple illustration to remind us where to make food choices.
