Multivitamins For Children

From the moment they are born we aim to do the best for our children, and from that first moment nutrition is top of most parents lists. Once you’ve moved on from milk, solid food becomes a massive part of their lives. It seems like Little Man is ALWAYS eating, but as his Mum I want to make sure what he’s eating is good for him. Yes he gets treats, he’s rather partial to Lindt Chocolate Bears – he has extravagant taste – and cake, and he has discovered the magic of McDonalds Happy Meals, but I like to make sure the bulk of his meals and snacks are nutritious. Unfortunately children don’t always eat what they are given, and getting those vital nutrients into them becomes a battle.

The Department of Health recommends that children aged between 6 months and 5 years take supplemental vitamins A, C and D. Multivitamins are not an alternative to a healthy diet, but they can certainly help to ensure your child is getting the right nutrients. Seven Seas has a range of multivitamins specifically designed for children. Their Haliborange range starts with a liquid multivitamin for babies and toddlers which is orange flavoured and sugar free. It helps maintain healthy immune defences, mental performance, skin, energy release, blood formation, bones and teeth. From age 3 they have two flavours of Fruit Softies, which to children look and taste delicious whilst providing them with the essentials they need for growth and development.

We are pretty lucky with Little Man. He loves eating pasta, prefers brown toast to white, and would live on fruit if we let him. I’m confident that his good foods far outnumber his bad, but I think Seven Seas Haliborange range is something which I’ll consider. Like all parents I want my Little Man to grow up healthy, and the right vitamins and nutrients will ensure he does.

You can find the full Seven Seas Haliborange range on their website. You can also find them on Facebook.

Beat The Flu This Winter!

Well the weather has certainly taken a dramatic downward turn hasn’t it? Its been chilly for a while but its now decidedly wetter and more miserable out there today. I don’t think a day has gone by in recent weeks when someone or other on Twitter has commented that they or their other halves have been struck down with a cold, and its not really surprising with the weather like it is. Here are a few suggestions to help prevent, or help beat, any colds or flu that might strike your family this winter.

Prevention is better than cure, so eating healthily is a great way to boost your immune system and battle the bugs before they attack. Vitamin supplements are also a great way to give your body that extra fight so think about taking Vitamin C & Zinc. This supplement, with a balanced diet, helps boost your immune system but can also help reduce tiredness and fatigue – something I’m sure we’d all benefit from! You can also take Vitamin E which protects your bodies cells, and is especially beneficial to older people. If you’re particularly concerned about catching Flu this winter – maybe due to age or other medical issues – you may wish to consider a flu jab, which you can now get at your local Asda for just £7.

If you are unfortunate enough to get a cold or flu this winter there are some great affordable medicines out there which you can take. Most branded cold and flu relief is pretty pricey, especially if you need to take it for more than a few days. Cold & Flu Relief Capsules from Asda come in packs of 16 and cost just 65p – less than a quarter of the price of a leading branded packet containing the same number and the same ingredients. There is also a range of hot fruit drinks and decongestants available too.


So next time you are in your local Asda or perhaps doing your online food shop take a look at these great value items which could just save you a winter of coughing and sneezing!
