Hi and thank you for asking us

Through the question and statement you gave on the above section, i completely understand your concern over this matter. For your information, yes the supplement is safe for children but the dosage will depend on certain factors of the children such as their weight thus I encourage you to take them to see a doctor to know the correct dose for them.
