B Facts..

  • B vitamins help the body to utilize the energy in carbohydrates, fat and protein.
  • B vitamins provide nutrition which helps release energy to help babies develop and grow.
  • B vitamins also maintain the nervous and digestive systems and are essential for growth, development and the repair of tissue – including skin and eyes!

From baby, through toddler, primary school and even for multi-tasking mums, the B group of vitamins function to release energy in the body, but three are critical for ensuring vitality!

Thiamine (B1)

Thiamine is needed for the metabolism of carbohydrates and into glucose for energy production.

Riboflavin (B2)

Riboflavin is important in the breakdown of carbohydrates, fats and proteins.

Niacin (B3)

Niacin is needed in the maintenance of healthy skin, nerves and gastrointestinal tract.

Vegemite is one of the richest know sources of Vitamin B.

Happy Little Vegemites!

  • B1, B2 and Niacin are needed in our diets everyday as our bodies can’t generate all we need. So it’s advisable for your baby to consume them daily.
  • Vegemite is one of the richest know sources of Vitamin B.
  • The perfect time to introduce Vegemite is when your baby is enjoying a variety of solids.
  • Try adding a little Vegemite to mashed vegetables or pureed meat dishes. As baby grows spread it on rusks, sandwiches and toast fingers.

Note: One serving of Vegemite (5g) has about the same amount of salt as a slice of bread. So you need not worry about the salt content of Vegemite provided you consider your baby’s entire daily intak
