bluegrass healthykids 300HOPKINS COUNTY, KY (4/16/13) - Bluegrass
 Pharmacy
 will
 offer
 a
 free
 30‐day
 supply
 of
 children’s
 vitamins
 to
 the
 children
 of
 Hopkins
 County
 and
 the
 surrounding
 area
 each
 month.
 The
 new 
Healthy
 Kids
Free
 Vitamin
 Program, 
starting 
in 
April, 
will 
help 
fill 
in nutritional 
gaps
 and 
will 
save local 
families 
hundreds
 of
 dollars
 per
 year.


Bluegrass
 Pharmacy
 wants 
to 
make
 it 
a 
little
 easier
 for
 local
 children
 to
 get 
the 
nutrition
 they
 need.
 With
 the
 new
 Healthy
 Kids
 Free
 Vitamin
 Program,
 children
 ages
 2‐
 12
 will
 receive
 a
 30‐day
 supply
 each
 month
 of
 FDA‐approved
 Nature’s
 Blend
 Children’s
 Chewable
 vitamins,
 formulated
 to
 address
 the
 specific
 nutritional
 deficits
 that
 face
 today’s
children.


Parents
 and
 guardians
 must
 register
 their
 child
 for
 the
 program
 at
 Bluegrass
 Pharmacy,
 located
 at
 1128
 North
 Main
 Street,
 and
 come
 back
 every
 30
 days
 to
 pick
 up
 his
 or
 her
 supply
 of
 free
 vitamins.
 Kids
 that
 have
 picked
 up
 their
 vitamins
 every
 30
 days
 for
 six
 months
 will 
be entered 
to
win 
a 
free
 pizza 
party
 at 
Fun
4
Kidz 
for 
16 
friends.


Bluegrass
 Pharmacy
 owner
 Gary
 Russell
 stated,
 “We
 are
 offering
 this
 free
 children’s
 vitamin
program 
in
 an
 effort
 to
 minimize
 vitamin
 deficiencies 
that 
may 
occur 
in 
children
 due 
to a 
lack 
of 
balance 
in 
their 
diet. 
Ideally, 
they 
would
 get 
five 
fruits 
and
 vegetables 
a
 day
 but
 this
 may
 not
 occur
 for
 various
 reasons,
 especially
 in
 children
 who
 are
 picky
 eaters.”


Studies
 have
 revealed
 that
 heart
 disease,
 diabetes,
 osteoporosis,
 cancer
 and
 obesity
 in
 adults
are
 often
 a 
direct
 result 
of 
nutritional
 deficiencies 
in 
childhood.



Russell
 says
 that
 his
 pharmacy
 team
 is
 passionate
 about
 getting
 quality
 vitamins
 in
 the
 hands
 of
 Madisonville 
parents.


“Vitamins
 are
 essential
 for
 your
 child's
 cellular,
 physical
 and
 mental
 development
 stages,
 and
 can
 prevent
 future
 health
 problems,”
 he
 says.
 “That’s
 why
 we
 wanted
 to
 start
 the
 Healthy
 Kids
 Free
 Vitamin
 Program:
 now
 local
 parents
 can
 make
 a
 big
 difference 
in 
their 
child’s 
health, for 
free,
 every
 month.”
