There are a few questions I get really frequently, over and over again. One of them is:
“Do your kids take vitamins?”
And it’s promptly followed by “Which brand?!”
So the answer is yes, my kids do take supplements and have since they were toddlers. The brands have varied over the years, but I’ve always looked for whole-foods based vitamins with the least
amount of anything added.
For years the vitamins I gave them were a chewable or gummy-style vitamin because toddlers
are fickle and it was the easiest to get them to take. Those vitamins, however, often have an
added sweetener of some kind to make them more palatable, and in my mind that’s less than
Now that Meghan is 9 and Luke is 5, I knew they were old enough to switch away
from the chewable and gummy-style vitamins. Now they take MegaFood Kids Daily Multi.
It comes in a powder form and has no added sugar, sweeteners, flavorings, or preservatives.
It’s made with a variety of real foods, including turmeric!
Because it’s made with real, whole foods, it delivers so much more than just vitamins. Your kids
are getting all the phytonutrients from the antioxidant-rich plants that go into the Kids Daily Multi.
The moment I got my hands on MegaFood Kids Daily Multi, I was ecstatic. It’s got everything a
mom could hope for to provide authentic nourishment for her kids and nothing she wouldn’t
want added in.
The powder can be added to your kids’ favorite smoothie, shake, or juice. We are not a juice
family, so I’ve had to get creative in finding ways that they can enjoy the powder without adding
a bunch of sugar.
The good news is that after some experimentation we’ve landed on ways that they do enjoy
their daily multi powder!
Notice I said “ways.” Of course, Meghan and Luke have their own separate preferences. I’m
going to give you the recipes for how they each like to take their vitamins each day.I’ll start with my 5-year- old, Luke. Instead of adding the powder to juice, I make a “whole juice”
by blending whole fruit and water and add the powder to that. Luke likes to call this his “vitamin
juice.” You can use a variety of fruits here, but we’ve found that pineapple works best because
it’s sweet enough to soften the flavor of the powder. He also likes when I add in strawberry with

Meghan likes the Vitamin Juice okay, but prefers her powder mixed in with a smoothie. Make it
a chocolate smoothie and she’s golden. I don’t add any sweeteners to this, but do add some
whole, pitted dates for sweetness. They add extra nutrition and fiber, too, so it’s a good thing!
We call this one Chocolate Vitamin Smoothie.Here’s Meghan chilling after school and being silly enjoying her Chocolate Vitamin Smoothie.
I’m really happy we made this switch to MegaFood Kids Daily Multi. It delivers incredible
nutrition and is 100% worth the effort it’s taken to find ways they enjoy it. My kids’ health is
everything and I’m so glad to have this product to help support my goal of keeping them healthy!
