Ever since I was diagnosed with a severe Vitamin D deficiency two years ago, I have been extra vigilant about my children taking their vitamins. While a healthy diet is important, a multivitamin offers protection in getting any vitamins or minerals that are missed. And a vitamin with added Vitamin D and Calcium is essential to children and adults. That's why Bassetts Vitamins are encouraging families to take their vitamins so they can stay healthy and get outside this autumn and winter. They want us to have fun and enjoy #nodulldays.
The Department of Health recommends that everyone should be taking a supplement that has 10 micrograms of Vitamin D (during autumn and winter). The best way to get Vitamind D is through lovely sunshine. But did you know that in the UK, we are unable to make Vitamind D from the sun from October to March? And since Calcium and Vitamind D are important for healthy teeth and bones, you need a supplement.
But children won't just take any old vitamin. It needs to be a tasty chewable that doesn't have a chalky or overly sweet taste. I recently bought a box of vitamins from a well known company, but my son disliked the flavour and refused to have any after the first one. Vitamins are no good when your children refuse them. That's where Bassetts comes in. They have a multivitamin with Vitamin D and Calcium that comes in a yummy peach and apricot flavour (aimed at children 3-6 years old). There is no added sugar and it is made with natural flavours and colours. And Dubz loves the taste. He says they're making him strong like Superman.
So this autumn and winter, I have stocked up on Bassetts vitamins. They're yummy, plus I don't have to worry about my children's bone growth and development. Healthy kids means that we'll be outside enjoying fun family time and there will be no dull days. And even when we're at home, we'll still be having a super time.
