Carlson Receives Back-to-School Essentials Award from Taste for Life

Carlson was recently honored with a Taste for Life Back-to-School Essentials Award in the Growth and Development category for Kid’s Chewable Iron. Lack of iron is one of the most common nutritional deficiencies in children, which is why the American Academy of Pediatrics recommends all infants’ iron levels are tested starting between 9 and 12 months of age. Carlson Kid’s Chewable Iron promotes blood health, energy production, and optimal wellness.* A single natural strawberry-flavored chewable tablet provides 15 mg of iron.

Iron is an essential mineral and an important component of hemoglobin, a substance in red blood cells that carries oxygen from our lungs to the rest of our body. Hemoglobin uses about two-thirds of our body’s total iron. If we’re lacking iron, our body can’t produce enough red blood cells, which can affect our oxygen level and make us feel tired. Kid’s Chewable Iron is a convenient and delicious way to make sure our children get the iron they need daily.

About Carlson

Carlson began in Chicago in 1965 as one woman’s mission to improve the health of her family by creating nutritional supplements with high-quality ingredients. Susan Carlson’s father suffered from heart issues but found relief after taking vitamin E. Inspired by this discovery and her background as a pharmacist, Susan created one of the first full lines of vitamin E worldwide, and the product line continued growing to meet the health needs of local families. Carlson began popping up on store shelves around Chicago, and the wave continued across the nation. 

In the early 1980s, Carlson helped launch the omega-3 market in North America, importing our first wild caught, sustainably sourced fish oils from Norway. Today, the commitment to helping families live a healthier lifestyle continues, as the next generation of the Carlson family leads the company. Carlson now offers more than 200 vitamins, minerals, omega-3s, kids' products, and other high-quality nutritional supplements. At Carlson, our family cares about the health of your family.
