The Multivitamin Your Kids Will Be Asking For
Taking daily vitamins can be a tough habit to start as a grown up, so why not do your kids the favor of starting them young?
Children are incredibly active (especially during this time of year) both physically and mentally. Their growing minds and bodies require lots of essential nutrients, which can be obtained by the perfect diet. There’s just one question to ask yourself:
“Is my kid a picky eater?”
Even if you answered “no” to that question, consider some of the foods children need to be eating in large amounts to be consuming their essential nutrients:
If you’ve never said “Kids, I’ve made your favorite things: sardines, mackerel, and herring with milk, peas, asparagus, and eggs. Eat up!” then there is a good chance of a nutritional gap in their diet.
How The Alphabet Can Help
You may not be able to hide all the foods on that list in your child’s dinner without them noticing. And let’s be honest: you’re busy, you’re probably battling homework and chores, you probably don’t have the time and energy to get them a perfectly balanced meal that they’re willing to eat every day of the week. Adding a multivitamin to their sometimes picky or rushed diet is important for their brains and bodies before they head to school or for fun with their friends. Make sure their multivitamin contains the alphabet of vitamins:
Vitamin A: For vision, bone growth, skin, and to help protect digestive systems from infection.
Vitamin B6: For at least 112 different enzymes in the body, which are used to perform and speed up chemical reactions for many functions including neurotransmitter production for brain cell communication and the metabolism of carbohydrates, amino acids, and fatty acids.
Vitamin B12: Helps support adrenal function and maintain a healthy nervous system by affecting the development of nerve cells and helping in the production of DNA, RNA, and neurotransmitters.
Vitamin C: A powerful antioxidant that combats free radicals and helps the body to form, repair and maintain connective tissue such as bones, blood vessels, and skin.
Vitamin D: Helps by maintaining proper bone structure, booting immune system, and supporting the heart and blood vessels.
Vitamin E: An antioxidant protector for cell membranes, where most of the cell activities occur.
Vitamin K: Helps to thicken blood and to cement calcium into bone.
They’re Tasty Too!

Our Graphic Designer Elle’s daughter even tried to convince her that she never got her morning penguin so she could get an extra at night. And Jen said, “Great product! I noticed a difference in my son right away. He has more self-control (not perfect) but you can see a difference. He is not so up and down in his mood and he loves them!”
