Can children eat Purition?
Yes, Purition can absolutely be enjoyed by all ages and it can be a great addition to your child's healthy and balanced diet!
Purition is real food - it is not a supplement or a meal replacement - and it it is only made using real, whole food ingredients and nothing artificial or synthetic at all.
It is a base recipe of approximately 70% seeds and nuts: almonds, golden linseed, sunflower kernels, coconut, chia seeds, sesame seeds & pumpkin seeds, plus some additional protein and natural ingredients to flavour gently - such as freeze dried strawberries or whole ground vanilla pods.
Due to these carefully chosen ingredients, Purition is a great natural source of healthy unsaturated fats, protein, fibre and and an array vitamins and minerals:
It is a source vitamins B1, B2, B3, B5, B9, E and calcium, copper, iron, magnesium, manganese, phosphorous, potassium, selenium & zinc.

One thing to consider is that a 40g serving of Purition is an excellent source of fibre - it contains approximately 7g, depending on the flavour.
So, if your child is 5-11 years old, we suggest that they have a half serving (20g) as their daily fibre requirements are much lower (20g) than children over the age of 11 (25g) or adults (30g). For children over the age of 11, we recommend that they start with a half serving (20g) for the first week or so, until they get accustomed to the fibre and then they can enjoy the full (40g) serving thereafter.
