HOPKINS 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.
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.”
