Back to school time can be a stressful time for moms and kids alike. There are lots of new things to adjust to as kids try to get back into the routine of going to class each day. So what can we do as moms to help kids relax so they can focus on learning?
Our family decided to work on becoming more healthy. Along with changing our eating habits we will be adding vitamins to our diet. We have had problems with vitamins in the past because my kids can’t always swallow pills.
I know there are chewable alternatives, but frankly, my boys don’t think they taste all that great and the gummy vitamins we’ve used seemed to contain a high amount of sugar. alternaVites Kids® has an answer to these issues and their answer is much easier to swallow than typical vitamins!
Produced by Rich Vitamins, alternaVites Kids® is an easy to ingest crystal powder that contains 17 vitamins and minerals that are important for kids overall health and well being. Did you know that without enough B12, a child’s body may not produce enough blood cells for the brain, which may leave kids feeling tired and weak?
Also, a lack of Vitamin A can lead to blurred vision. No one wants their child to struggle in school because they are fatigued and struggling to see the board. alternaVites Kids® is loaded with these vitamins and other nutrients children need to stay healthy and strong and focused in class.
Here are some of the other great features of alternaVites Kids®:
- Comes in 2 awesome flavors – strawberry bubblegum & raspberry cotton candy
- Melts in your mouth
- One packet per day
- Has 0 grams of sugar
- Free of aspartame and high fructose corn syrup
- Contains no artificial sweeteners, colors, flavors or preservatives
- Has no animal products or by-products
- Does not contain egg, milk, peanut, tree nuts, wheat, soy, fish or shellfish*
- Certified kosher pareve
One of the best features about alternaVites Kids® is it’s versatility, because it can be taken a number of ways. The powder can be slowly sprinkled on the tongue, where it will dissolve instantly or it can be mixed into pudding, yogurt, smoothies or even sprinkled on fruit. How easy is that? No more fights with the kids about taking their vitamins! Just mix it into something yummy and BOOM! It’s like a vitamin powered pixie stick!
And just in case you were wondering, they make an adult version of alternaVites too, which is great for people like me and the rest of the 40% of Americans who have difficulty swallowing pills. So as long as I remember to take them, I have no more excuses for leaving vitamins out of my daily routine! I think that the easy to carry packets will help a lot with my forgetfulness, because I can keep a few packets in my purse to take even when I’m away from home. Very convenient!
