Feelgood JuniorSlim is a complex herbal remedy that helps address the emotional as well as the physiological causes of overeating and weight gain in children.
How can JuniorSlim help?
Children of today’s world face significant challenges in maintaining healthy body mass. Processed foods and a sedentary lifestyle in front of a TV or computer monitor have resulted in an increase in overweight and obese children. Children who are overweight also have self-esteem, social and emotional problems and can struggle to keep up with their peers. Excess weight in childhood also predisposes children to obesity in adulthood and many conditions previously associated with obese adults (e.g. diabetes) are now becoming more and more common in children. (see below for more information on childhood obesity and weight-loss).
Like all Feelgood Health products, JuniorSlim is developed with care by our practising Clinical Psychologist, is 100% natural and manufactured according to the highest pharmaceutical standards. Individual ingredients are well-researched and have been specially chosen for their high safety profile in children’s remedies.
JuniorSlim contains the following all-natural herbal ingredients in therapeutic dosage:
Foeniculum vulgare (Fennel), Mentha piperita, Taraxacum officinale (Dandelion), Astragalus membranaceous (Huang Qi), Glycorrhiza glabra (Licorice), Stachys officinalis (Wood betony), Melissa officinalis, Ethanol (natural preservative)
How has JuniorSlim helped others?
‘My son Chad is only 6 and had already started to become overweight. He was always on the chubby side but starting school and being exposed to a lot of junk food like chips and candy (which he loves) started to take their toll. He became the butt of teasing and bullying because of his size and I could see this was affecting his self-esteem. I didn’t want him to be a fat child who would grow to become a fat and unhealthy adult so decided to take action. JuniorSlim was the best choice I could have made. We began to monitor his diet a bit more closely and provided more healthy options for school lunches. Within weeks he was more energetic and seemed happier and he has steadily lost his “pudgy” look over the last few months. I have recommended Junior Slim to some other moms who are concerned about their kids putting on weight and everyone has been very impressed.’ – Janet F.
‘Unfortunately my 11 year old twin girls have picked up on their parents’ bad lifestyle habits and their lack of exercise and poor diet began to take its toll on their health and young figures. With both my husband and I working full-time, fast-food for dinner was almost a daily occurrence in our home. Our daughters (like us) became overweight and unhappy. At the age where all their friends were becoming aware of clothes and boys my two girls became withdrawn and I knew it was because of their weight. We bought JuniorSlim and also began to eat more healthily at home. The changes have been astounding – both girls have shed their puppy-fat and are looking absolutely lovely. This has given them confidence and set my mind at rest about their health in the future. JuniorSlim is an excellent product!’ – Cheryl and Steve
‘I just want to tell you that JuniorSlim worked very well to help me lose weight. I am so happy because now I can also do gymnastics like my friends and I don’t get tired like I did before.’ – Candice (9)
How do I use JuniorSlim?
JuniorSlim comes in convenient concentrated tincture (drop) form and is diluted in water or juice.
JuniorSlim is ideally suited to children between the age of 3 and 12. Use one drop per age year of the child in approximately 1/4 glass of water or juice. Repeat two to three times daily before meals. It is recommended that JuniorSlim be combined with regular exercise and a healthy diet for best results.
Not recommended for children under one-year-old. Do not deprive your child of healthy food. Consult a dietitian or nutritionist for advice if your child is significantly overweight. (For more information, please see below.)
- Sign your child up for regular physical activity – a dance class, karate or swimming group for example. Make sure that your child gets at least an hour of physical activity every day
- During weekends, go for walks or schedule family time outdoors.
- Cut down on refined and processed foods and substitute lean meat, chicken or fish, eggs & salads. Do this for the whole family to encourage family health & to avoid making your child feel ‘deprived’.
- Discourage long hours on the computer or in front of the TV. There is so much sitting time at school that you do not want to add to it at home!
- Send a healthy lunch box to school. Avoid bread and unhealthy snacks and include hard-boiled eggs, salads & fruits. Do not include high sugar drinks or energy drinks.
- Remember that your child is growing. By simply adopting a healthy diet and regular exercise, natural growth patterns will help to shed the ‘puppy fat’ without harsh dieting – and you will be encouraging healthy food habits in adulthood too!
