Helping your family stay healthy


Is your child constantly getting sick at school? It’s all runny noses, colds and upset tummies. Every day is a “germ day” and your child is continuously exposed to a host of bacteria, viruses, fungi and parasites.

This causes your little one’s immune system to work hard – and an apple a day may not be enough, especially if they’re picky eaters.

A strong immune system means your child has powerful natural defences against diseases and is less vulnerable and susceptible to colds, flu or other infections.1

Créche Guard safeguards them while they live, learn and play.

Your handy immune booster

It’s hard enough juggling work, chores, mealtimes and sick kiddies – and trying the latest “sneaky ways to incorporate veggies in your meals” can be a full-time job. The problem is that poor eating habits lead to an inadequate intake of vitamins and minerals. This may compromise your child’s immune system, making them more susceptible to infectious diseases.

Vitamins and minerals are important for healthy growth and development in children.2 This is one of the reasons paediatricians may recommend a supplement that contains vitamins and minerals in instances where your child’s diet may not be sufficient.3

Créche Guard Immune is here to give you a helping hand and provide a combination of vitamins and minerals essential to support your child’s immunity.  It’s available in a tasty syrup or chewy gummy version.

The range also includes probiotics to support a healthy gut, exciting new fluid-replenishing lollies and Omega-3 chews to help brain development. Créche Guard has your family covered!

Créche Guard – protect your child while safeguarding your whole family.

Available at leading pharmacies and retailers countrywide.


IMPORTANT: Discuss supplements with your child’s healthcare provider before giving them to your little one. Taking large amounts of vitamins that exceed the recommended daily amount can be toxic and lead to symptoms such as nausea, headaches or diarrhoea.2
