You’d like to think having kids has made you more honest. But it’s only increased your appreciation of the little white lie.
Especially if said lie comes packed with nutrients.
Open wide for AlternaVites Kids vitamins. The sweet, candylike powder pours right into your kiddo’s mouth and instantly melts away — think Pixy Stix without any sugar or preservatives. The formulation includes seventeen vitamins and minerals specifically chosen for growing bodies ages 4 and up.
There’s no doubt littles are attracted to the magic of strawberry bubble gum and raspberry cotton candy crystals dissolving on their tongues, but what we like most is that you can mix packets into smoothies and yogurt or sprinkle them on cereal and fruit for an extra health boost.
For parents who worry about allergies, AlternaVites are free of eggs, milk, peanuts, tree nuts, wheat, soy, fish, and shellfish.
And that’s the whole truth.
Available online at alternavites.com, $16.
