Before J was born, we were determined that we wouldn’t have a picky eater for a child (ahh, naivete). While C would pick veggies over desserts, J avoids them unless forced. As a result, it’s even more important that we stay on top of giving him essential vitamins he needs.
Enter Emergen-C Kidz. We’ve tried several options before, but this one really intrigued me because the boys LOVE juice and think of it as a treat when they get it. I was curious if they’d like the taste, because if so this would be an awesome way to get them vitamins, especially during cold and flu season.
I decided to mix up a glass of each flavor and have J be my taste-tester:
Now, mind you – J is the picky one, so I figured he was the best test subject. If he likes it, parents, this should give you a good inkling that your kids will too! Let’s see what he thought:
I was so excited that he liked it (all opinions are honestly and solely his own, with no prompting from me). After I stopped recording he finished the orange and the fruit punch entirely! C got to take a taste too and the orange was his favorite.
Emergen-C has a great project going on right now, providing us with the opportunity to supply vitamins to kids who need them most. For every box of Emergen-C Kidz sold, they will donate 25 cents to Vitamin Angels, to provide essential nutrients to one child for one year, helping reduce childhood mortality worldwide.
Another way you can help is by taking the Emergen-C Pledge:
I pledge today to commit to creating a fun and healthy lifestyle for me and my family, which includes: eating more nutritious foods, taking vitamins daily, and getting regular exercise – all while having fun and spending more time together! With this pledge, I will also commit to teaching my children the importance of helping others through actions big and small.
For every pledge, they will donate an additional 25 cents to Vitamin Angels, which means your commitment to your family’s health and wellness can help save a life too! Visit their Facebook page to take the pledge now – it only takes a few seconds to make a difference.
I wrote this review while participating in a campaign by Mom Central Consulting on behalf of Emergen-C and received samples to facilitate my review and a promotional item to thank me for taking the time to participate.
