  • What do you mean good for low energy? Do you want a good way to keep it low or get it up?

  • Usually vitamin c, iron pills and lots of fruits and veggies help if you want to get your energy up.

  • I also believe the more active you are the more energy you gain.

  • Rest, fluids, de-stressing. Making sure you have a balanced diet. For young women this usually includes an iron supplement. Getting a medical checkup to rule out anemia or gland problem. Making sure you aren't coming down with a virus or other illness, including allergy problems.

  • Make sure that you get planty of rest. Also if you are dehydrated this can cause you to feel tired so make sure you are drinking enough water.

    Eat lots of fresh fruits - try banana smoothie in the morning - 5 bananas blended with some water. Fruit gives you quick easily digested energy.

    Cut out fatty foods as fat is very hard on your body and will drain your energys. Cut out meat ,dairy and grains.

    A high carbohydrate diet is what we are biological made to eat so opt for a high carb diet...high in fruits and vegetables.

    I could go on.

  • Exercising regularly can help, too.

  • There are some things, like supplements, that would be inappropriate to give a young child that would be okay for an older child, so your best bet would be to speak to your child's doctor. Things that would be safe for a child of most any age would be a healthy diet rich in fresh fruits & veggies and low in fried or heavily processed foods (like fast food, lunchmeats or french fries) and regular exercise. Also getting adequate sleep and not letting your child spend too much time with electronics (tv, video games, etc.). Believe it or not, social problems can interfere with energy levels, too, because not having friends or a social life can lead to depression, which in turn leads to fatigue, etc.
