As you know, at A Frog in My Soup, we take healthy living very seriously, and we jump at any opportunity to share information with you that can help your family be healthier!  When Alternavites contacted us about reviewing their new quick-melting multivitamin for kids, I was thrilled!  I find that most kids vitamins today are filled with artificial flavors, colors, and often sugar!  Yuck!  I am trying to give my kids the essential vitamins and minerals to help them grow, not give them more junk.

When I heard that not only did Alternavites eliminate the artificial flavors and coloring, they kept the flavor, I was so excited to try them.  Plus, the managed to eliminate the worst part of vitamins – the swallowing a pill part!  Not only that, but the vitamins come in fun single serve pouches of powder that quickly disolves on your tongue.  I had to laugh when I saw the picture above because since we started using Alternavites my kids make that exact same face when I tell them it’s time for their vitamins!  My daughter has been caught trying to take extra vitamins and I’m pretty sure she thinks that it is candy…

Alternavites Kids come in two really yummy flavors; Strawberry Bubble Gum and Rasberry Cotton Candy.  I am partial to the Cotton Candy flavor, but my kids seriously love both.    Alternavites also makes an adult version in Delcious Mixed Berry that truly is delicious!  (A little warning though – I poured almost the whole pouch in my mouth at once.  I then coughed.  Big mistake – powder everywhere and two hysterical kids!  It was actually kind of funny, but if you happen to have a cold or cough, go slow! :) )
