AlternaVites Kids Vitamins

Do you or your kids have a hard time taking your vitamins every day because you can't stand to chew or swallow them? If you answered yes, then AlternaVites will save you! ;)


     AlternaVites is a new, modern way to vitamins, made for adults and kids; {I will be reviewing the kids version.} AlternaVites Kids comes in two different flavors: Strawberry Bubble Gum and Raspberry Cotton Candy. Sounds delicious right? You sprinkle small amounts on the tongue and let it dissolve, to apply more, until the packet is empty. The method reminds me of the good ol' pixie sticks, but a healthier version of course ;)  Which makes it fun for kids! And only one packet a day.


Here are some facts on AlternVites for Kids:
  • The powder melts in your mouth within seconds
  • Has 0grams of sugar 
  • Made with no artificial colors, flavors, sweeteners or preservatives
  • Does not contain several allergy causing foods, like eggs, milk, peanut, tree nuts, wheat, soy or fish. 
  • There are no animal products or by-products
  • Free of aspartame and high fructose corn syrup
  • And is certified kosher pareve
  • Aimed for kids ages 4 and up

I also LOVE that you can mix AlternaVites into basically anything! From smoothies, to yogurt,  to sprinkling on top of fruits..the ideas are endless! These are a great way to get your kids the vitamins they need, if they're the picky kind that refuses to chomp up their chewables....you can hide the vitamin powder in something delicious and they'd never know! 




When I received my AlternaVites to try out, I was really intrigued by the idea. I tried them the next day! I was given the Strawberry Bubble Gum flavor to try, and you can taste a slight amount of the bubble gum, but nothing overpowering. I did however, find the vitamin powder, by itself, to be really chalky tasting :( That's something I was wishing wouldn't have happened. I had my husband try them as well, and he thought the same thing, that the powder was chalky. Then we had our 4 year old son try it out...he didn't like it as well :-/ But thankfully he has no problem taking his Flintstones Chewable Vitamins otherwise I'd be disguising this powder in his foods!! ;)

   Aside from the chalkiness, I find that AlternaVites are a great way to give kids their vitamins, in place of the chewables (or swallowables if that's the case), if they tend to think of them as candy. Or if you have a child who just really doesn't like vitamins period. I know of adults who tend to vomit by taking vitamins, so in their case, AlternaVites would be a wonderful option also! 
They can really come in handy.
