A relatively high percentage of young children in developing countries face micronutrient deficiencies. Research suggests that Vitamin A and D are amongst the most common nutrient deficiencies prevalent in children(1), which often results in poor immunity, growth, and development. Scott\u2019s, the No.1 Brand in Peninsular Malaysia for the Child Health Supplement and Vitamin C (Child) Category recently announced the launch of the Scott\u2019s Gummies with Multivitamin (rich in Vitamins A, B6, C, D & E, and Zinc) that is specially designed to play a role in the growth and development of children of ages five and above. The newly launched Scott\u2019s Gummies with Multivitamin in Apple and Tropical flavours with Vitamins A, B6, C, D, E, and Zinc, specially designed for children of the ages five and above. The Scott\u2019s Gummies with Multivitamin contains the goodness of these essential nutrients for children. At the same time, the gummies come in delicious Apple and Tropical flavours \u2013 catering to their preferred taste. The gummies are shaped like lions, monkeys, and crocodiles \u2013 making it all the more attractive. Scott\u2019s tapped into the multivitamin category as it currently covers only 29% in the Child Healthcare Supplement range, with Vitamin C taking up 41% and fish-based supplements covering 30%. The Generasi Z & Z Power in action during the activity segment for the Scott\u2019s Gummies with Multivitamin Virtual Launch. The existing Scott\u2019s product portfolio focuses on DHA for brain development and Vitamin C for immunity. Thus, the company recognised the unmet need for multivitamins that promote growth and development. \u201cMany children avoid eating certain foods like fish that are rich in Vitamins A, B6, and D, and legumes that are rich in Zinc2. The Scott\u2019s Gummies with Multivitamin has been developed by nutrition experts and dieticians to provide children with essential micronutrients. We still emphasise that a good, balanced diet is imperative to ensure our little ones get sufficient nutrients for their healthy growth,\u201d said Bryan Wong, General Manager, GlaxoSmithKline Consumer Healthcare (GSK Consumer Healthcare).
