The Vitamin Decision

Some time ago I decided that it would be a good idea to add a multi-vitamin to our children's diet. With the amount of foods we are avoiding, and the natural tendency of kids to be picky eaters, it made sense to have an insurance policy of sorts. A little something extra to help fill in the nutritional gaps of the day.

Being a demanding mama, I was looking for very specific things from the vitamin that would be in our house. First, it had to be free of our allergens. Of course. Second, it should not contain artificial sweeteners. That eliminated an amazing number of choices. (Is sugar really so evil?) And last, it had to taste good. If it's not good, the kids aren't going to eat it. And the last thing I want is to add a battle to our daily routine.

After searching through quite a few options, I found a vitamin that meets up to my demands. And then some. YummiBears by Hero Nutritionals. Allergen free, tasty, no artificial sweeteners.

Recently, YummiBears sent me a sample of their new organic multivitamin. A good thing in it's original form, now made better? The kids and I took it for a (taste) test drive.

Wow. It's really good! Still allergen free, still yummy, and now organic. It is softer to chew than the original gummi multi-vitamin, and I think the fruit flavor is more intense. The kids love love love them. This is a very good thing.

So, if you're searching for the perfect vitamin for your family, check them out. Could be they meet your standards too.
