What does our 'No-GMOs' statement mean?
No GMOs means we have tested our finished product for the presence of GMOs to ensure it contains no Genetically Modified Organisms. Our dairy-derived ingredients (whey protein concentrate and nonfat dry milk) are derived from conventionally-produced dairy from suppliers where it is common practice for dairy cows to be fed animal feeds that may contain GMO grains such as corn and soy.

Ingredients

Whey Protein

What is it?

When you push liquid milk through a filter what is left is whey. When this whey is dried, it forms whey protein concentrate. This high-protein concentrate also contains some carbohydrates (in lactose form) and fat. Whey-based protein is a complete protein, which means that it contains all of the amino acids.

Maltodextrin

What is it?

A starch-based complex carbohydrate usually made from corn, rice, potato, or wheat. It serves as a thickener to make Healthy Height shakes have a better mouthfeel and texture. Maltodextrin is recognized by the FDA as Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS).

Nonfat Dry Milk

What is it?

Nonfat dry milk is derived from liquid milk by removing the water content. It contributes some of the protein content to Healthy Height.

High Oleic Sunflower Oil

What is it?

High Oleic Sunflower oil is derived from sunflower oil, like its name indicates. It is a healthy source of fat because it is very high in mono and polyunsaturated fat. These types of fats have been shown to have positive effects on the cardiovascular system and are especially important for brain development in children.

Organic Cane Sugar

What is it?

Cane sugar is made from whole sugar cane (white granulated sugar can be made from sugar beets or sugar cane). It’s sugar is of the sucrose form and has been added to Healthy Height to make it more palatable. It is important to note that only minimal amounts of sugar have been added to Healthy Height (only 3g of added sugar per serving).

Organic Cocoa Powder (in chocolate formula)

What is it?

Cocoa powder is made from cacao beans and make our chocolate Healthy Height formula chocolatey and delicious.

Inulin

What is it?

Inulin is a commonly used polysaccharide (carbohydrate) used to add insoluble fiber to foods. This type of fiber has been shown to improve gut health because of its role as a prebiotic. Inulin is Generally Recognized as Safe by the FDA. Additionally, in a 2005 study, it was found that daily consumption of prebiotic short- and long-chain inulin-type fructans increased calcium absorption and had positive effect on bone mineralization in prepubertal adolescents

Modified Food Starch

What is it?

Modified Food Starch is added to foods to help powders dissolve better and prevents lumping. This has been added to Healthy Height to improve the shake texture when added to milk. While this has been created through modification of starch (and is sometimes a product of genetic modification), ours is non GMO and the FDA recognizes it as a GRAS ingredient.

L-Arginine

What is it?

Arginine is an essential amino acid, a building block of protein. Certain amino acids like Arginine have been shown to play a role in regulatory agents in growth. They regulate by affecting calcium absorption and influencing healthy gut bacteria. Children experiencing delays in growth or poor growth rates have been shown to have low levels of Arginine.

Micronutrient Ingredients

Calcium

One serving of Healthy Height contains 220 mg of calcium or 15% of the RDA, making Healthy Height a GOOD source of calcium!

What is Calcium?

While calcium is used for many functions throughout the body, it is most vital to bone health. Calcium is stored in the bones and utilized to keep bones sturdy and strong.

Why do children need it for growth?

For children to grow, calcium is utilized at the growth plate to elongate and strengthen bones. Without adequate calcium available in the body, growth will slow and growth can be stunted.

Daily Recommendations

  • 1-3 years old: 700 mg/day'
  • 4-8 years old: 1000 mg/day
  • 9-13 years old: 1300 mg/day

Food Sources

Dairy sources are the best source of calcium because it is better absorbed than plant-based sources of calcium. However, for those who cannot have dairy, there are some good plant-based sources of calcium.

Dairy

  • MILK
  • YOGURT
  • CHEESE

Plant

  • BROCCOLI

Zinc

One serving of Healthy Height contains 2 mg of zinc or 20% of the DRI, making Healthy Height an Excellent source of Zinc!

What is Zinc?

Zinc is an essential mineral utilized in the activity of enzymes, immunity health, and supports growth in childhood.

Why do children need it for growth?

Zinc plays an important role in the release of hormones related to growth, such as Human Growth Hormone and Insulin Growth Factor-1. Zinc also helps to better absorb and utilize calcium in the body, which is essential to bone health and subsequently growth.

Daily Recommendations

  • 1-3 years old: 3 mg
  • 4-8 years old: 5 mg
  • 9-13 years old: 8 mg

Food Sources

Oysters contain more zinc than any other food, however picky children are likely not going to choose to eat oysters often. Animal-derived foods, nuts, and some legumes are good options for zinc intake.

Iron

One serving of Healthy Height contains 1 mg of iron, or 6% of the DRI.

What is Iron?

Iron is an essential mineral that helps to support cell health so oxygen is adequately carried throughout the body, supports metabolic functions, and aids in growth.

Why do children need it for growth?

Iron deficiency can lead to impaired growth. The impaired growth is related to the impaired immunity, appetite, and thyroid hormone metabolism caused by insufficient iron intakes.

Daily Recommendations

  • 1-3 years old: 7 mg
  • 4-8 years old: 10 mg
  • 9-13 years old: 8 mg

Vitamin A

We have added vitamin A to Healthy Height because of its importance in promoting healthy growth.

What is Vitamin A?

Vitamin A is a fat-soluble vitamin that supports vision and immune health. Through it’s immune functions, it assists in supporting adequate growth in children.

Why do children need it for growth?

Iron deficiency can lead to impaired growth. The impaired growth is related to the impaired immunity, appetite, and thyroid hormone metabolism caused by insufficient iron intakes.

Daily Recommendations

  • 1-3 years old: 300 mcg
  • 4-8 years old: 400 mcg
  • 9-13 years old: 600 mcg

Food Sources

Vitamin A comes in two different forms, retinoids and carotenoids. Retinoids are found in animal-based food and carotenoids are pigments found in plants and are converted by the body into vitamin A. The most common carotenoid is beta-carotene, which is commonly known as the pigment that makes carrots orange.

Vitamin C

One serving of Healthy Height contains 10 mg of vitamin C or 10% of the RDA, making Healthy Height a GOOD source of vitamin C!

What is Vitamin C?

Vitamin C is an essential water soluble vitamin that works as an antioxidant in the body, supports tissue regeneration and the immune system, and helps to better absorb iron.

Why do children need it for growth?

Vitamin C has been included in Healthy Height’s formula to help better absorb the iron content. Additionally, like vitamin A’s role in growth, vitamin C keeps the immune system strong and prevents infections associated with poor growth.

Daily Recommendations

  • 1-3 years old: 15 mg
  • 4-8 years old: 25 mg
  • 9-13 years old: 45 mg

Food Sources

Fruits and vegetables are the best source for vitamin C. High heat destroys vitamin C, so its best when fruits and vegetable are raw, or minimally cooked.

  • PEPPERS
  • CANTALOUPE
  • TOMATO
  • KIWIFRUIT

  • BRUSSEL SPROUTS
  • CABBAGE
  • CAULIFLOWER
  • POTATO
  • SPINACH

Vitamin D

One serving of Healthy Height contains 1 mcg of vitamin D or 6% of the DRI!

What is Vitamin D?

Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin required for proper bone development and maintenance and has roles in the immune system, reduces inflammation, and can affect mental health. It is not present in many foods because the best source for vitamin D is the sun. Our skin is able to get vitamin D3 from the sun and our bodies convert it into the active form, vitamin D4.

Why do children need it for growth?

Vitamin D promotes calcium absorption to enable proper bone mineralization, as well as helps to maintain calcium and phosphorus blood levels to prevent bone loss. With adequate calcium intake but insufficient vitamin D, bone health may suffer and growth delays can occur.

Daily Recommendations

  • 1-13 years 15 mcg
  • (600 IU/day)

Food Sources

Vitamin D is most abundantly available to the human body from the sun, but there are some food sources. Ensuring intakes of dietary vitamin D is extra important if the climate where you live requires more time inside or if your skin is darker, it will be less efficient at taking in vitamin D from the sun.
