I’m really lucky that my boys will both eat pretty much anything you put in front of them. I try to make sure they have a good mixture of fruit and veg everyday and they will happily snack on healthy foods. We have recently started to incorporate more healthy food items into our everyday meals and snacks which they have been having too. Some days though, especially days like these, making sure they eat enough good stuff is not top of my priorities and I then worry about what they could be lacking in. I used to always give them a children’s chewy multivitamin and had for some reason fallen out of the habit. Holland and Barrett asked me to review some of the children’s health and kids multivitamins that they stock and I had forgotten how popular they were with the boys.
I don’t need to remind them as every morning they will both ask if they can have one, they see it as a treat. Over the last couple of weeks they have tried all the different brands and flavours sent to us and like choosing a different one each day. Finlay likes the strawberry ones the best, while Kyle likes the orange, although both of them will happily have either. Each brands vitamin is like a little chewy jelly sweet. The live bacteria chocballs unsurprisingly also went down well. Live bacteria is not something I have given the boys before but I am aware of the benefits of having it.

Giving the boys kids multivitamins is definitely a habit I will keep up now as I like knowing they are helping them to get all the vitamins and minerals they need. I also think the boys will be pretty upset when we run out if I don’t replace them. Healthy and happy boys is a win, win for me.
