I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for L’il Critters. I received a product sample and promotional item as a thank you for participating.
As a parent I am ALWAYS trying to do what is best for my 3 precious girls! I try to strike up a good balance between work and play, encouraging them to earn items they want vs. giving them these gifts to see the smiles on their faces. I also try really hard to provide them with a good balanced diet. We have found veggies, fruits, and other healthy foods that they enjoy and will happily eat. Even with a good diet we end up short on many of our daily suggested values for vitamins. For the last 4 years we have been supplementing with a hard, but chew-able vitamin. Unfortunately, we can’t seem to get into a routine to remember to take them every day. That was the case until we recently found out about L’il Critters Gummy Vites! They are soft, chewy, and a complete children’s multi-vitamin that are shaped like gummy bears!
The minute my girls saw these gummy bear vitamins, they asked what they were and if they could have one. I looked over the label and found that I could give them up to 2 L’il Critters Gummy Vites per day. So we cracked the safety seal and started to open up the first bottle.
Once we got the cap off the awesome smell of gummy bears floated through the air. Now everyone was really excited! Choosing which one they wanted was tricky as there were so many good flavors to choose from: cherry, strawberry, tropical punch, orange, lemon, and white grape! My girls loved the variety of options to choose from and I LOVED that the flavors and colors were naturally sourced! That means there are no dyes or RED30 or YELLOW10….just natural colors from fruits and veggies! Awesome, right? I gave them one gummy vite to start out with.
After the first one was gone, all three of my girls asked for another one. Since the directions suggest up to 2, I figured why not give them more vitamins and minerals…I was REALLY liking their excitement for these L’il Critters Gummy Vites! I was grateful that L’il Critters had made this bottle with a child proof cap! Once you have two of these tasty vitamins it is hard to not want more….thanks to the child proof lid, I know that no one will be sneaking any when I am not looking!
We usually get a little lazy about taking our vitamins, but not anymore. My kids absolutely LOVE these gummy vitamins! We haven’t missed a day since we have had them-and we have been BUSY each day. I asked them why they like these so much more than the old vitamins we used to take. They said,
“The other chew-able vitamins that we used to take made my mouth taste dry. I used to need a drink of milk with it each time. These vitamins are chewy and gummy and don’t make me thirsty” – Age 6
“Ummm….because they are gummy bears-you silly Mommy-why would you ask me that?!” Age 5 (my 5 year old is always cracking a joke about her silly Mommy!)
“I like these gummy bears, more please!” -Age 2
When I give them each 2 at a time, before they eat them, my two older girls like to play with them. Today they were all “sunbathing” on aluminum foil under the kitchen lights! It made me laugh and I though here is a vitamin that can keep their body and their imagination strong!
It has been several days and my girls are still very excited about these gummy vitamins. Yesterday when we were headed to play with their cousins at Grandmas, they insisted that we pack the vitamins to share! Once we got to Grandma’s, my girls told the others to come try a gummy bear vitamin because they were “SO GOOD!”
My kids approve of the taste, texture, and shape of the vitamin, but it is what you can’t see that impresses ME the most! In these tiny, tasty vitamins you will find:
- Vitamin A for eye support
- Vitamin B6 and B12 for cell support
- Vitamin C-an antioxidant
- Vitamin D3 for bone support
- Vitamin E-also an antioxidant
- Ch (Choline)-which is great for overall development
- PLUS MORE!
Overall these L’il Critters Gummy Vites are awesome and my entire family loves them! I even tried one and found them to be enjoyable! Supplementing with vitamins is an easy and tasty way to ensure my children are getting the vitamins and minerals that their body needs! You can purchase L’il Critters Gummy Vites at many grocery and drug stores like Walmart, Costco, Target, CVS, and many others. You can find out more info at the Gummy Vites Website or check them out on Facebook.
I want to know, do you supplement your child’s diet with vitamins? If so, why?
