Now that school is in full swing, I’ve picked up some last minute items that my kids needed for a successful start to their school year. While at Target, I picked up Nature Made® KIDS FIRST® Multivitamin Gummies and Fiber Gummies since over the summer my kids had gotten away from taking their daily vitamins. With the begging of the school year, it was time to get back to their daily routine of getting dressed on their own, a quick breakfast, vitamins and brushing teeth before heading off to school.
Typically when the school year starts, it’s also the beginning of cold and flu season. If I can, I like to give my kids an extra barrier when it comes to germs, so I hit up our local Target to pick up a few essentials for the classroom like hand sanitizer, Kleenex, and wipes. A lot of these items were on the class supply list and available at Target, so a one stop shop like made life so much easier. Then, the kids reminded me we were out of vitamins.
My kids are such picky eaters when it comes to a balanced meal, I have to improvise. Since vitamins are now made in an easy-to-chew gummies, the kids actually enjoy getting some of the essential daily nutritional support from Nature Made® KIDS FIRST® Multivitamin Gummies and Fiber Gummies. In our household, I prefer giving them daily gummies because there’s no argument when it comes to taste. With awesome all-natural fruity flavors, I actually have to limit my kids to their recommended daily dose because they’d eat a hole handful if I’d let them. With orange, cherry and mixed berry flavors, they are filling in key nutrient gaps and supporting their overall health – WIN WIN for mom! Then I’ll take on the vegetable battle one carrot and broccoli spear at a time.
I like the Nature Made® KIDS FIRST® Multivitamin Gummies because:
- They contain 12 essential nutrients for my youngsters nutritional support, including vitamins A, C, D and E, B vitamins, and minerals like iodine and zinc that they’re not getting from certain fruits and veggies that they refuse to eat.
- The kids love their all natural fruit flavors.
- The colors of the gummies come from natural sources, meaning they do not contain synthetic dyes.
- They are made without preservatives or yeast.
- They’re even gluten free!
I also decided to grab Nature Made® KIDS FIRST® Fiber Vitamins. We made the choice to add the fiber supplement into our kids daily routine because the addition of fiber gummies along with the daily cereals they are already eating, supports healthy digestion†. Since they are finicky eaters, I thought I’d jump on any opportunity to supplement their diet.
The Nature Made® KIDS FIRST® Fiber Gummies are great because:
• They are a good source of fiber.
• The kids love their all natural fruit flavors.
• The colors of the gummies also come from natural
sources, meaning they do not contain synthetic dyes.
• They are not made of preservatives or yeast
• And they are gluten free
Now the kids have the nightly routine established of taking a shower, grabbing their vitamins, a glass of water and brushing their teeth. However, we’re still working on bed time. Since it’s still officially summer, they think bed time is after 9:00pm. AND, they are still in the cuddle stage and LOVE to jump into bed with mom and dad, so they won’t enter their rooms unless we are following behind. I guess we’ll indulge jumping into bed with them for a little while longer – I keep hearing that eventually they’re not going to want to have us around, right? Can’t they just stay little forever?
