Vitamins again!

Blinking winter! every year winter comes and smallest child gets ill.
Now I know you cant get a cold from being cold, but why does she always catch a cold when it is cold?
And of course at rising 6 she is at THAT age, she wont eat many veggies and is very limited on her meat intake (anything that is hard to eat such as chops, chicken, bacon etc is rejected) I refuse to cook alternative meals for her, and so she often goes without (mean huh?)

So when I came across these multivitimins for kids I was impressed as they ticked a lot of boxes for me;

  • nut and gluten free (middle daughter has a nut allergy, the jury is still out on what the smallest child seems to react to!)
  • no artificial colourings or flavourings
  • handy one dose packs of fruit flavoured chewy objects! - the kids think they get sweets everyday mouhahahaha
  • contains vitamins A, C, D, E & B12
  • the company behind vitfits have teamed up with kidsaid and donate 10p from every monthly supply pack to them. Every little helps!
But I guess the question is do the kids like them and have they had a significant impact on their health?

The kids love them, they taste nice and the little packs are cute (although these things don't always sit easy with my reducing packaging theory, I let it slip if the kids take their vitamins!).

have they had a significant effect on their health? well that's a harder one to gauge. I think it would be fairer to say that they certainly haven't had a negative impact, but as the kids took vits anyway I haven't seen an improvement, but certainly not a higher incidence of colds and bugs etc. So yes I guess they do their thing!

I am looking forward to getting their new product when it is released, which is an Omega 3 product, as this is also something I give the girls - mainly because of the reputed benefit to children who are on the Autistic Spectrum.

Its also nice that the company have provided a bit of fun for the kids on the website with their fitvits health club.
