Like Giving Candy to a Baby

smarty pants vitamins!

If you’re not pushed over the bad-mommy edge by one glaring headline (“Study Shows Kids Need Extra Vitamin D!”), another will come and take you down (“Omega-3 Fatty Acids Are Essential to Brain Development!”).

Pull yourself up with the help of SmartyPants, an all-in-one vitamin that takes the busywork out of raising healthy kids.

Each gummy supplement is fortified with Omega-3s from ecofriendly fish sources (no need to worry about mercury) and 100 percent of the recommended amount of vitamin D3 (take that, sunblock). And instead of high-fructose corn syrup, they have the real stuff — just five grams of organic cane sugar per serving.

Plus, for every bottle you buy, the company gives a matching nutrient grant to a child in need through the nonprofit Vitamin Angels.

Making way for a new headline: “Mom Helps the World While Raising Healthy Kids!”

Available online at wearesmartypants.com, $22.
