AlternaVites-A New Way To Get Your Kids to Take Their Vitamins

Do you take your vitamins every day? I will readily admit that I sometimes forget and then I feel so guilty. I really hate swallowing those huge pills each day. Some of those things are really big!

And the kids? 1 out of 2 not fussing isn’t that bad, right? Matthew will take his no problem. Gracie, ugh, she has to throw a fit, saying that it tastes nasty. Sadly, I give in more times than I should (just to avoid a fight) and she won’t take them.

Well, I finally found a vitamin for us all!

AlternaVites – easy to open small packages…that contain a powdered vitamin! No pills to swallow or chew.  No nasty taste at all. In fact, the are very tasty!

We reviewed the alternaVites KIDS in both the Strawberry Bubble Gum and Raspberry Cotton Candy flavors. The kids really liked how easy it was to take their vitamins and said they liked the taste of it. My biggest problem now is convincing Matthew it is not candy and he can’t have another!

alternaVites KIDS contain 17 vitamins and minerals and are specially formulated for children ages 4 and up. One package a day and your child has the vitamin supplement they need. It contains no sugar, no aspartame and high fructose corn syrup, no artificial sweeteners, colors, flavors or preservatives. It also is great for kids with allergies – as it contains no eggs, milk, peanut, tree nuts, wheat, soy, fish or shellfish. As with any vitamin you should check with your doctor first. They also have an adult version of alternaVites, which comes in a Mixed Berry flavor. It has 23 vitamins and minerals that adults need.

Another thing that is so neat is that you can take the vitamin in a few different ways. Of course, one of the easiest ways is just sprinkling it on your tongue, which is what my kids did. But you can also mix it into yogurts, puddings or smoothies, sprinkle it on top of fruit, or lick it off a spoon. The possibilities are endless!

If you are looking for a vitamin for your child, I would definitely check this out! It’s easy to take and quite tasty.

    I can’t envision asking kids to ingest a package of powdered anything will be an easy sell unless they’ve been introduced to a powdered candy previously. What tactic did you take with you kids?

    You suggested mixing the vitamin powder into drinks/foods. My children should be working for a forensics team. They can detect even the slightest deviation from the norm. :) That begin said, how much blending have you found satisfactory to mask the fast of the vitamin powder?

    I try to get them in fun shapes and flavors and then we take them at the same time each day so that it is routine.

    I have a 12 year old and she doesn’t take vitamins much any more. I try to remind her especially during the cold and flu season that it is very important.

    The kids want to take vitamins because I do. We take them together and talk about how strong and healthy we are…..the little ones them show me their “big” muscles and I make a big deal out of it and compliment them on how much they are growing. They love it (and so do I).

    They always see me take mine so they see it as just part of the day – never had a real problem with it.

    Personally, I think gummies vitamins associate medicine/vitamins too closely with candy, and that makes me uncomfortable. So, I’m definitely intrigued by the idea of a power that you can carefully mix into food or drinks without too much notice or complaining. Hopefully, if used with fruits smoothies or yogurts you could talk about the importance of those naturally occurring vitamins at the same time!

    Very interesting. I would also like to see if powder vitamins stick around to kids. I have to hide the gummy vitamins from my toddler otherwise she cries and wants more because she thinks it’s candy.
