I am not a fan of taking pills but I know the importance of Prenatal and other vitamins. For me the problem is that I have to take more than one. I don’t eat much dairy so on top of my prenatal I have to take calcium pills. And due to some genetic risk factors, I also have to take much more folic acid than is contained in prenatal vitamins. When I was pregnant with Monkey Girl I also had to take iron supplements and I have a feeling that may happen with this one as well. That is A LOT of pills to swallow!
So you know when I had the chance to try out Vitafusion Prenatal and Calcium Gummy Vitamins I was super excited. Seriously, it’s like eating candy. Chewy, sweet, and full of vitamins. What’s not to love?
The Prenatal vitamins are easy on the stomach (which is a chief complaint of many prenatal vitamins) and provide expectant mothers a multi-vitamin formula with an excellent source of folic acid and DHA. Made with natural colors and flavors, they’re a great-tasting alternative to large, hard-to-swallow tablets.
The Calcium gummies are swirled with creamy berry and citrus flavors and are an excellent source of calcium and vitamin D. Each serving supports bone health with 500 mg of calcium and only natural colors and award winning fruit flavors.
I was also sent an assortment of their L’il Critters line for Monkey Girl to review. She is the vitamin patrol in our house. Every morning and evening she reminds all of us that it is time to take our vitamins. It is nice that we all have similar vitamins (my husband takes the Sour MultiVites) so she feels like she is a big girl! They make so many different varieties of the kids vitamins to fit every kid’s unique needs. L’il Critters Gummy Vitamins are just what they sound like…little gummy vitamins that look like gummy bears!
They have everything from Fruit and Veggie gummies, to Immune C. Also, if you are attempting to incorporate more Omega-3′s into your little one’s diet, the Omega-3 Gummy Fish would work great.
Vitafusion by Northwest Natural Products also make L’il Critters vitamins for kids and a whole line of Vitafusion vitamins for adults as well. Find other products and store locations at nnpvitamins.com.
