Details

Good nutrition plays a critical role in everyone’s health and is especially important for children because they are constantly growing, from birth to the end of adolescence. However most children are picky eaters and, thus, tend to fall short on many essential nutrients at a time when they are more important than ever. Pound for pound, a 5-year-old child needs more thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, vitamins A and C, and vitamins B6 and B12 than a 25-year-old man. The Usanimals supplement, USANA’s Essentials™ for kids, is an advanced formulation of nutrients necessary not only for a healthy childhood but also for laying the foundation of good health for a lifetime.

Today's Childhood Nutrition
Many studies show that children do not receive the nutrition they need from their diets. Less than 25 percent of young people eat the recommended five servings or more of fruits and vegetables each day, and nearly one-quarter of all vegetables consumed by children and adolescents are french fries. Adequate amounts of key nutrients such as zinc, vitamin B6, magnesium, and calcium are missing from the diets of more than 50 percent of children from 2 to 10 years old. Vitamins C and D are also often deficient. A quality nutritional supplement, such as Usanimals, can help ensure that none of these essential nutrients are missing from a child’s diet.

Nutrition for Growth
Optimal nourishment in the first years of life is especially important to ensure children not only survive, but that they thrive. If nutrients are missing that are needed for general survival, the body will not have anything to direct toward growth. Growth involves much more than just the development of children’s bodies. It is an intricate balance of varying growth rates, physiological changes, and shifting hormone status. While growth in childhood is slower than in infancy or adolescence, it is the time in which physical and mental developments that will impact their entire lives are occurring.

• Bones and teeth are forming, meaning calcium, magnesium, and vitamin D are needed.*
• The health of all organs is established. Brain health is one of the most important, as it affects a child’s ability to learn new skills and behaviors, including socialization, communication, and analytical thinking. Brain health also can affect moods and emotions. Many B-vitamins, such as folate, B6, and B12, are important to healthy brain function.*
• Eye health depends on adequate amounts of antioxidant vitamins A, C, and E.*
• The health of our immune system is critical throughout life. Vitamins, minerals, as well as the unique antioxidant phytonutrient complex in Usanimals provide important defense against oxidative stress and support for healthy immune function.*

Adequate nutrition is also important for kids’ energy levels. Childhood energy output is high, with play periods that include plenty of running, jumping, and testing of new physical skills. Lack of proper nutrition can lead to lethargy and decreased curiosity or social interactions. Usanimals provides a wide range of vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients in amounts designed especially for active, growing children.

Q: What’s the difference between MySmart™Shakes and Nutrimeal™?
A: MySmartShakes are the cleaner, simpler products a growing segment of the population are clamoring for. They don’t have any sugar and are packed with six grams of fat—mainly from coconut oil—to provide the beneficial balance of macronutrients to combat today’s carbohydrate-heavy diets. MySmartShakes also give you the ability to personalize your shake. You’ll have a variety of flavors and proteins to choose from, instead of being stuck with only a few options.

Q: What do the numbers on my shake bags mean?
A: Each part of the MySmartFoods line is numbered to guide you through the process. So making your perfectly personalized MySmartShake is as easy as 1, 2, 3.

1. Choose your protein base—plant, soy, or whey
2. Choose your USANA MySmart™ Flavor Optimizer—dark chocolate, cappuccino, peach mango, banana, orange cream, or stick with the mild vanilla flavor of the base
3. Add in a booster, like USANA MySmart™Shake Protein Plus

Q: Will USANA be adding more flavors in the future?
A: Yes. Over the next few years, we plan to roll out more flavors. Keep checking on The Hub for more exciting MySmartFoods products.

Q: How will these new products affect the RESET™ Kit?
A: We’re changing the RESET Kit to MySmart™Start, and it will feature the MySmartFoods line. This means you’ll experience more personalization with a program that will help you start living a healthier lifestyle.

Q: Are MySmartFoods low glycemic?
A: We can’t talk about MySmartFoods and the glycemic index, but they do have a low-glycemic impact on your body. Here’s why:

There simply isn’t enough sugar to determine a glycemic-index score experimentally. In other words, they are naturally low glycemic in the same way that nuts or fish are. They contain too few carbohydrates to be tested, and their influence on blood glucose would be insignificant. So, while we can’t measure the glycemic index, of course they will help support your low-glycemic diet.

Q What went into the development of these new products?
A: We recognized a desire among consumers for simple, pure products. They want ingredients they can pronounce and easily understand. That means cleaner labels and ingredients that are closer to nature. One thing I was taught was to simply look at the length of an ingredient deck—almost always, shorter is better.

This was also an opportunity to add in more beneficial fats—mainly from coconut oil—to provide a better balance of macronutrients: carbohydrates, protein, and fats. For a long time, the story was that fats were bad. When you dig into the scientific literature, that’s just not the case.

Q: So what’s going on with the saturated fat in the products? A: Fats are a vital nutrient, especially for our cells. And the type of fats found in coconut oil—which is what we use in these products—has quite a few health benefits. It’s been shown to support healthy metabolism, and contribute to satiety. There’s also evidence coconut oil supports healthy triglyceride levels and maintains good cholesterol levels already in the normal range.*

Q: How will the shakes and bars benefit my overall diet?
A: That’s a great question. We are very good at talking about “essential” micronutrients—the vitamins and minerals that are essential to sustain life. However, we often forget there are “essential” macronutrients as well. MySmartFoods offer both essential and beneficial macronutrients designed to help bring our overall diet back into balance.

Around the world, we are consuming more calories coming mostly from refined sugars, and more specifically, from snacking. The primary goal of these new products is to help restore balance in our diet, and combine them with the USANA® Essentials™ to provide the essential macro- and micro-nutrition our bodies need to thrive.

Q: Will the products make me feel full longer?
A: Besides fat, it is well known and scientifically documented that increased amounts of fiber and protein will also help increase the overall sense of satiety and boost your metabolism. Just two of the many health benefits these macronutrients provide.
