Iodine is essential as it is employed for the synthesis of thyroid hormones that regulate oxygen use, cellular metabolism and metabolic rate. Iodine and thyroid hormones are also important for children’s skeletal, muscular and nervous systems and for babies’ eyesight, brain and hearing development. Omega-3 long chain fatty acids such as DHA supports regular brain, nerve and eyesight function and development in babies. Folic acid is used in the synthesis of genetic material and cellular division. Foetal cells undergo constant cell division, which requires increased levels of folate during pregnancy and the early days following conception. Calcium and magnesium are vital components for bone health as well as muscle and nerve function. Vitamin D3 supports calcium absorption and is vital for maintaining bone health. Low vitamin D levels are a common occurrence in pregnant women. Iron is a component of haemoglobin and essential for the formation of red blood cells. Early foetal brain development requires sufficient iron levels, which increases the iron requirements during pregnancy. Zinc and B-group vitamins are important for the healthy growth and development of babies.
