Do you have a picky eater in your house?  At first, I thought I was the only mom struggling to get their toddler to eat more than just mac and cheese, hot dogs, tomatoes and chicken noodle soup.  But, after meeting up with local moms over the summer for playdates, I was pleasantly surprised to hear about how they struggle during each meal time to get one, if not all their children to eat.  Frustrated, they turned to fast food or just letting their children eat the few foods they asked for.  They would rather have their picky eaters eating alongside the rest of the family, than try to run a restaurant kitchen cooking up a variety of foods in hopes their child(ren) would eat.  Many moms said they dreaded mealtime, as they knew it would be a losing battle from the start.  But, they didn't know what else to do.  Pediatricians told them, and myself, to leave food and snacks out within our child's reach, so that they could graze throughout the day.  This would allow them to eat when they wanted to.  At first, it sounded like a good idea, but I found my youngest would hover around the plate and eat the food I had left out for Savannah.  As a result, our youngest daughter, Arabella, now weighs the same as Savannah, even though there is a 15 month difference -- all because of her grazing/snacking.  So, we stopped this.

Then, the pediatrician's next idea was to give those nutritional drinks throughout the day to Savannah.  They come in a variety of flavors, so she was bound to like one, right?  Wrong.  We tried all the flavors, and she would just turn to me and say "No try."  Money wasted, and a mom growing more frustrated, I turned to the doctor one last time to see what advice she might have.  The only other suggestion she could offer was to include vitamin into my daughter's diet, so that she would get all the vitamins and minerals she needed daily, if not in the food, by means of the vitamins.  Before I could go shopping for children's vitamins, I was chosen for A Mom Central Consulting campaign, working with L'il Critters Gummy Vites, and was sent two bottles (original and sour flavors) to try with the kids.  Not suitable for children under age 2 (mainly because of choking hazards), I ended up giving these gummy dietary supplements to my daughter, Savannah, as well as to my niece and nephew, who are now staying with us.

L'il Critters Gummy Vites come in natural cherry, strawberry, tropical punch, lemon orange and white grape flavors.  While, L'i" Critters Gummy Vites Sour come in crazy cherry, outrageous apple and zingberry flavors."

So, how did they like them? At first, the older children thought I was trying to give them medicine, when they weren't sick.  Then, I told them that these were great tasting gummy vitamins. Who would turn away a gummy treat?  They sure didn't! :-)  Once they were all done chewing these flavored gummy vites, I asked them what they thought.  Savannah's first reaction was that she wanted another. The recommended daily serving of L'il Critters Gummy vites is 2 per child.  After telling them this, I gave them another to enjoy.  In unison the children all said, "Yum!" as they finished their second Gummy Vite.

I was excited to see how the children liked these Gummy Vites, and how easy it was for them to chew and swallow.  And, water wasn't necessary afterwards, which makes these great for busy moms.  You can easily give them to your child on in the AM as they head out to the bus, or even in the car when you are dropping them off at school.  And, with fun flavors like tropical punch, strawberry, as well as the sour Gummy Vites, children will want to take their vitamins each day, without hassle.  :-)  

It has been over a week since I began adding a daily vitamin in the form of the L'il Critters Gummy Vites into my children's diets.  As a mom, who was also a health educator prior to becoming a stay at home mom, I love knowing that they are getting the vitamins and minerals into their diets, especially our picky eater, Savannah.  While we are still working on getting her to eat a more balanced diet, I can breath a little easier, knowing that by adding a daily vitamin into her daily regime, that her vitamin and mineral needs are being met.  Hopefully, she will grow out of being a picky eater...just like I did! :-)  But, in the meantime, I am happy to have L'il Critters Gummy Vites to give her, and can't stop raving about them with friends and other moms who talk about their picky eaters, and are looking for ways to provide the necessary vitamins and minerals into their diets.

And, if you are an adult, like me, who has trouble swallowing pills, or hates those oversized chewable vitamins, you can also take these tasty gummies, to get your daily recommended vitamin and mineral intake.  I have been trying both the original and sour flavors with the kids, and have to say that I prefer the sour ones.  Nothing like a little mouth puckering to get your day started. :-)
