This year, I am making a big effort to ensure all of us are taking our vitamins. I am a self-professed germophobe and while I know the majority of our vitamins and minerals should come from the food we eat, I’m also a realist and know that this just isn’t going to happen. So, I think the best way to ensure we have our bases covered is to take vitamins. A simple chewable multi-vitamin is a great start but if you want to ensure you’re getting all the necessary minerals as well, IronKids Vitamin Supplements are a great idea.
We were sent all the IronKids Gummies products to try with the kids. Yes, that’s a lot of vitamins and supplements! So, to keep track of how many vitamins each child gets (based on their age), I use a Sharpie marker to write the details, in order of oldest to youngest, on the lids. It’s a system that works for me, so I thought I’d share!
We received IronKids Multi Vitamins, Vitamin D, Fibre, Calcium and Omega 3’s Gummies and the kids have – quite naturally – been thrilled. I’m not a fan of those gummy “snacks” so the kids don’t regularly get gummies.
They definitely see their daily vitamins as a “treat” which is ok as long as they understand that, even though they taste yummy, they are vitamins and not candy. Still, I think it’s great to have a positive association with taking your vitamins so I’m a happy mom. It helps that they taste great and the kids like them. Now, they actually remind ME that they need their daily vitamins which is perfect!
We will continue to purchase IronKids Gummies once our review supply is gone, and now that the kids are into the routine and reminding me we’re on the road to ensuring we’re all living healthier (when they remind me to get their vitamins, I take mine too…more about adult vitamins in another post next week)!
IronKids is providing one of my Canadian readers with an IronKids prize package to help get you into the routine of daily vitamins and supplements with the kids. To enter to win, just use the Rafflecopter form below!
