Address the weight without hindering growth
Age related chubbiness is sometimes carried over from a child’s toddler years. This is normal, and can be as a result of genetics (mom or dad may also be inclined to have a fuller figure), or it could be as a result of bad eating habits as a teeny tot. These days, children spend more time in front of the TV and less time outdoors, which means that they have less exercise. As a result, some children and preteens may find that they are rounder and more padded than their peers. Some overweight children may be teased at school, or find it difficult to take part in sport and other activities.
Although the most common concern is healthy body fat range; children's weight range varies and as important as it is to maintain weight, it is also important that a young, growing body is supported nutritionally. The prepubescent body also needs balance to gain the systemic strength needed for the transition into puberty and the teenage years.
While a child’s waistline may or may not become an issue, being healthy and developing normally for their age is priority. Staying healthy and ensuring that the body is supported in carrying out its normal duties in various parts of the body, such as the digestive system and stomach, will mean the best chance of promoting child weight management.
The natural way
Naturopaths prefer to take a holistic look at the individual and encompass a variety of factors to include diet, lifestyle, personality type, surroundings and emotional elements – thereby supporting the health of the individual as a whole.
Natural remedies have been used to support the metabolism, helping to promote a balanced weight and body type.
There are now many published clinical studies demonstrating the ability of a range of herbs to support the normal functioning of the stomach, liver and digestive system, and maintain children's weight management and a healthy metabolism in children.
What are the ingredients?
JuniorSlim is a 100% herbal formula and contains the following ingredients: Dandelion, Lemon balm, Licorice, Astragalus, Peppermint, Sweet fennel, Wood betony.
- Fennel (Foeniculum vulgare) has been used since ancient times to ‘take the edge off’ appetite. It also supports the liver, kidneys and spleen. The health of these body organs is essential for the breakdown of dietary fat and the elimination of waste products from the body.
- Peppermint (Mentha piperita) has been used for many hundreds of years to maintain healthy digestion. It supports the flow of natural digestive juices and bile, which assist the body to effectively digest and process food (Taylor BA, Luscombe DK, Duthie HL. "Inhibitory effect of peppermint on gastrointestinal smooth muscle." Gut. 1983; 24: A992).
- Dandelion (Taraxacum officinalis), an unusually nutritious ingredient, has vitamins A, C, D, and B complex, as well as iron, magnesium, zinc, potassium, manganese, copper, choline, calcium, boron, and silicon. The bitter principles of dandelion support digestion. Dandelion also supports the flow of bile, and helps to maintain liver health. In recent studies, Taraxacum officinalis was shown to have an effect on laboratory animals with respect to body weight (Racz-Kotilla E, Racz G, Solomon A. "The action of Taraxacum officinale extracts on the body weight and diuresis of laboratory animals." Planta Med 1974; 26(3):212-217).
- Milk-vetch (Astragalus membranaceous) has been used for many centuries as support for the endocrine system.
- Licorice (Glycorrhiza glabra) has many uses, including support for the digestive system. A recent human study found that a preparation of licorice may reduce body fat (Bernardi M, D'Intino PE, Trevisani F, et al. Effects of prolonged ingestion of graded doses of licorice by healthy volunteers. Life Sci. 1994; 55(11):863-872).
- Wood betony (Stachys officinalis) is very useful for the child who may turn to food for comfort. Wood betony can help to support digestive health and metabolism in growing bodies.
- Lemon balm (Melissa officinalis) is well-known for its soothing and calming properties.

How has JuniorSlim helped others?
“My son Chad...became the object 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 I 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 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 JuniorSlim to some other moms who are concerned about their kids putting on weight and everyone has been very impressed.”
“Unfortunately my twin girls have picked up on their parents’ bad lifestyle habits, and their lack of exercise and poor diet began to take a toll on their health and young figures. 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 baby 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!”
