I have been telling my son lately that he is going to turn into either a chicken nugget or a hot dog…you know, you are what you eat… He’s not really a picky eater because he will try lots of new foods (his daddy is a chef!!) but he just likes what he likes!!
Just a little TMI (you’re all moms so it’s okay) but my boy has issues with constipation – and we’re still potty training – so he tends to drink more apple juice and less milk than I would prefer.
There is no way he is getting all of his vitamins!! A while back we start buying gummy vitamins and we’ve tried several. Sometimes he likes them, sometimes not so much…
Deborah from IronKids offered to send me a few of their gummies for review so I could tell you all about them. We chose to try out the IronKids Multivitamins and the Calcium vitamins and my boy LOVES them!! I’m not just saying that…I mean, he LOVES them!! (even more than his character ones!!) It’s so nice to not have to fight him to take the good stuff and not worry about him being healthy and active!!
The Multivitamins are about half the size of a quarter and very soft. They are red and orange (and apparently pretty darn yummy!!). He takes one per day, but always asks for more!!
The Calcium vitamins are closer to half the size of a nickel and they are shaped like red k on the IronKids’ logo. They are pink and yellow and a little more chewy, but still very soft. He takes two of these per day and we always have to decide if it’s one of each color or two of the same.
IronKids was started by a Husband and Wife team, Deborah and Stuart Lowther. Stuart started Life Science Nutritionals in 2005, striving to give families a healthy alternative and focusing primarily on children’s health. IronKids Gummy Vitamins began selling in the stores in 2007, but really took off when Deborah and the children joined in during 2010 (the woman behind the man…I love it!!).
IronKids has sent 10 cases of Multivitamins to children to Peru and Haiti through Short Term International Medical Missions Abroad.
They donate financially to PacePerformance to purchase bikes for kids through The Childrens’ Aid Society at Christmas time
They donate huge prize packs of vitamins and family passes to local attractions to be used as Silent Auction items to raise funds for Halton Women’s Shelter through RocktheWave, for York Central Hospital Foundation & Zack’s Dream room thru events hosted by Zack’s friends.
IronKids contributes to events supporting Moms, educating Moms, raising money for Cancer research and encouraging family activities and many local kids hockey teams and sporting events.
This summer IronKids Gummy Vitamins will be in the race kits for over 2,500 children across Canada participating in organized 1km or 5km fun runs and TRiKiDS triathlons!
