Which Products Can be Used by Children?
Usanimals are generally recommended for children between the ages of 2 and 12 as follows:
• Children 2 – 4 years: one chewable per day
• Children 4 – 12 years: two chewables per day
Body Rox is generally recommended for adolescents between the ages of 12 and 18.
BiOmega Jr. is generally recommended for children between the ages of 4 and 12 to take one packet every other day. BiOmega is generally not recommended for children under the age of 18. In part, this is because the BiOmega gelcaps are quite large, making them difficult for many children to swallow.
Active Calcium Chewables is generally recommended as follows:
• Children 1 – 6 years: Not recommended
• Children 7 – 10 years: one half to one Active Calcium tablet per day
• Children 11 – 12 years: one or two Active Calcium tablets per day
None of the other USANA supplements are formulated or intended for use in children. We are aware that under certain circumstances other supplements may be useful for children, but the recommendation for use should always come from a physician or other healthcare provider.
School-aged children (typically 5+ years old) can occasionally use the USANA Foods as a snack in addition to their regular meals. The USANA Foods should not, however, be used as meal replacements for children.
For pre-teens, serving sizes of the USANA foods may need to be adjusted according to the size and activity of the child.
The Sense products were formulated specifically for adult skin. These products contain specialized active ingredients designed to improve skin texture, reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, increase skin elasticity, moisturize dry skin, and protect the skin’s surface from water loss. Certain ingredients in the Sense line may be irritating to young skin and are not appropriate for infants or children. It is better – and recommended – that parents use skin care products specifically formulated for use in infants and children.
