There is always bound to be a phase as your little one grows up when he tends to be picky and fussy when eating. This can come around the time he is two and disappear within a few weeks or it can go on for longer phases. Fussy eaters are trying at the best of times. We mums try to get as creative as possible and look up recipes or ask from friends about tried & tested recipes. We end up making fancy elaborate dishes and there may be times when all your little one has are some fries or be on a yogurt only diet.
If you have a little fussy eater on your hands, take a look at our post on How To Deal With Fussy Eaters (it includes many never-fail tips that will help you greatly.) While you are dealing with this, remember, it’s common – almost all we mums have experience with fussy eaters from time to time.
In the meanwhile, worrying about balanced nutrition can be nerve racking. I as a mum know that if you have a fussy eater, you’ll constantly be worrying if your little one has got enough vitamins. You absolutely must obtain a good multivitamin that will help cover your little one while he goes through this phase.
In one of my earlier posts, I mentioned that Gummie Vitamins are now (thankfully!!) available in Sri Lanka. As I mentioned earlier, for those of you who are not familiar with what gummie vitamins are, here’s what they are. Gummie Multivitamins are small chewable pastilles which are flavoured, in kid friendly flavours such as orange, raspberry and lemon. The gummies look, feel and taste fairly like the locally available jujube candy that little ones enjoy having. Gummies are an easy and fun way for your child to take his multivitamins. I say easy because, if have a little one who doesn’t enjoy taking his syrupy multivitamin or hates chewing those chalky and rather tasteless vitamin tablets, these gummies are something your little one will absolutely love having. There’s no water required, no swallowing, it’s almost like having a candy!
Nature’s Way Kids Smart Vita Gummies Multivitamin for Fussy Eaters
It’s absolutely reassuring that there is a multivitamin that is meant especially for our fussy eaters. One that will provide them a well rounded set of nutrients while they are missing their carrots, beetroots, greens and other vegetables that are very much needed for a balanced diet and healthy growth.
Kids Smart Vita Gummies Multivitamin for Fussy Eaters contains 11 essential vitamins and minerals. In addition to this it enhances the daily levels of zinc intake which supports immunity & boosts appetite – which is absolutely great!
What makes Kids Smart Vita Gummies Multivitamin for Fussy Eaters unique and different to a normal multivitamin is that in addition to the minerals and vitamins it contains, it contains 5 vegetable extracts in powder forms. I was pleasantly surprised (no, actually I was excited!!) to hear that these yummy gummies have Spinach, Tomato, Carrot, Beetroot & Artichoke Powders in them and helps fill nutritional gaps.
If you are wondering why these veggies – Spinach, Tomato, Carrot, Beetroot & Artichoke Powders are particularly important, here’s why.
- Tomatoes have a whole host of benefits. They are good for the heart, helps maintain strong bones. They are good for the hair, skin and for your eyes.
- Carrots too are important and for kids, it helps prevent constipation, boosts immunity, helps improve eyesight, prevents night blindness, cures diarrhoea, promotes oral hygiene and help eliminate intestinal worms!
- Beetroots are one of those super foods that have nutrients in both the leaves and the roots. It’s rich in calcium, iron, Vitamins A and C. Beetroots are a very good source of fibre, magnesium and potassium and an excellent source of folic acid.
- Spinach, we know is very good for you. Apart from the fact that Popeye the Sailors man said so, spinach has a high level of iron, which is needed to take oxygen to muscles and is also high in dietary fibre.
- Now artichokes are not a normal part of a Sri Lankan diet, but artichokes keep your blood healthy and help you grow well. It is also high in polyphenols, which are disease-fighting compounds. They’re also a treasure trove of anti-inflammatory antioxidants.
You can see why these powders in these gummies are simply added goodness. Kids Smart Vita Gummies Multivitamin for Fussy Eaters comes in raspberry flavour so it masks all these goodness very cheekily!
Nature’s Way Kids Smart Vita Gummies Vitamin C +Zinc
We all know that taking Vitamin C can help decrease the severity of a cold and are often used to having a dose of Vitamin C when we feel a cold coming on. Nature’s Way Kids Smart Vita Gummies Vitamin C +Zinc are soft gummies which are citrus flavoured and each pastille contains Vitamin C + Zinc.
Zinc is essential for providing a boost to a flagging immune system. In addition, zinc is required for the body to make DNA and for cell division. The combination of Vitamin C & Zinc can also help maintain healthy skin in children, this includes speedy healing from wounds.
