Kids are picky about the food they eat, they are always on the lookout for something fun & tasty – sadly, this often means junk food, candy, and sugar laden snacks. While there are plenty of food-based supplements on the market, most of them are presented in tasty but unhealthy formats – such as gummy bear vitamins that are loaded with sugar, boost, bournvita, or horlicks drinks which contain less than adequate dosages of vitamins & minerals, and orange & lemon drinks like tang which have upwards of 60% of sugar but are marketed as ‘healthy’ as they add minuscule dosages of vitamin C.
At Unived, our ambition is to develop healthy food based alternatives for kids, that are tasty yet free of added sugar, or excess sodium, and that contain respectable amounts of natural vitamins, minerals, and proteins, so that your child actually experiences the benefits claims and enjoys consuming the product as well.

Calcium, just like protein, plays a vital role in the growth phase of any child. Calcium is used by the body to build strong bones, while also supporting muscle and nerve function, and the release of hormones and enzymes. Each serving of our peanut butter kids spread provides 125mg of algae-based calcium. To ensure proper calcium absorption, we’ve also added 100 I.U. of vegan vitamin D3.
Building a strong physical foundation is fundamental for any child. Protein provides the building blocks to give a child’s body structure. The amino acids that make up protein are required for building muscle tissue, and are necessary in the production of enzymes and hormones, building skin & bone tissues, and transporting nutrients.
Calcium and vitamin D3 play a supporting role is promoting healthy muscle growth and function in children. Calcium helps regulate muscle contraction. Vitamin D3 regulates neuromuscular function and impacts protein synthesis, which also promoting lean muscle.
Calicum is required for building strong bones. Children with insufficient calcium in their diet can lead to weak bones, higher risk of fractures and developing bone related disorders like osteoporosis and rickets. For the body to absorb calcium it requires vitamin D3. As vitamin D3 is a fat-soluble vitamin, our body requires fat for its maximum absorption. Monounsaturated fats allow bones to absorb calcium efficiently, which lead to denser bones and decreases the risk of bone related diseases. Consuming adequate amounts protein is also beneficial for bone health, as protein increases intestinal calcium absorption. It is better recommended that plant-based protein sources are better than animal sources proteins, as studies have shown that protein from animal products might stimulate bone breakdown and encourage calcium loss from the body.
For your kid’s brain to function properly it requires protein. Protein makes part of neurotransmitters. These neurotransmitters help control functions mood, appetite, and sleep, and protein keeps the working properly. Brain tissue and brain cells are also made of protein, which allows a child’s brain to grow and develop properly. As protein helps produce brain cells, lack of protein may result in behavioral problems, poor memory and cognitive deficiencies in kids.
Consuming healthy fats is also essential in the growth and function of a child’s brain. Saturated fats make up at least 50% of the cell membranes. Cell membranes give the brain the required stiffness and integrity. Monounsaturated fats increase production of acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter that plays an important role in learning and memory. These fats also improve mood. Polyunsaturated fats are essential for the brain to function properly. As these fats are not produced by the body, they need to be obtained through our diet.
Protein is fundamental in maintaining a healthy immune system. There are proteins that circulate in our blood and make up key components of a strong immune system. Protein are part of antibodies which are responsible for fighting infections. Vitamin D3 also plays an important role in keeping a strong immunity system. Vitamin D turns on key peptides in our immune system that rigger a strong anti-microbial response, allowing the body to quickly fight off invaders before becoming full blown infection.
This makes it easier for mothers to ensure that kids get their daily required amount of protein to ensure proper muscle development and cell growth.
Spread two tablespoons on whole-wheat bread or fruit, or add it to your kid’s favourite smoothie.
