I’ll be honest and tell you that I haven’t been the best at taking vitamins myself or giving them to my kids. The reason I don’t take them myself is because I deal with the annoying issue of nausea every time I take them. I have yet to find vitamins that work for me (besides kids vitamins – my doctor put me on Flinstones with each pregnancy, really), but I know I need to. I also know I need to be giving my kids vitamins – something I’ve been inconsistent with.
On a daily basis, my kids don’t get the vitamins their body needs and with a teenager, tween and elementary aged child – they are all so active! They need something to help them out a bit. Not only do they need vitamins, but also exercise, good sleep habits and just all around better nutrition.
That’s why I took the Emergen-C Kidz Pledge. What is the pledge you ask? You can read about it, as well as take the Pledge on the Emergen-C Facebook page here. And of course, while you are there, Like them on Facebook. (Keep reading to win some Emergen-C Kidz for your family!)
By taking the pledge, you are committing to creating a fun and healthy lifestyle for both yourself and your family. A healthy family has to start with the parents. Our kids are looking to us as examples, whether they would admit it or not. Here’s more of the Emergen-C Kidz Pledge:
I pledge today to commit to creating a fun and healthy lifestyle for me and my family, which includes: eating more nutritious foods, taking vitamins daily, and getting regular exercise – all while having fun and spending more time together! With this pledge, I will also commit to teaching my children the importance of helping others through actions big and small.
What are some things you can to honor this pledge?
- Give your kids Emergen-C every day
- Get outside and ride bikes, or scooters or just walk
- Laugh! Play a game, be silly and just learn to laugh with your kids
- Get your kids in the kitchen helping to prepare healthier meals
Do you have any tips to add for a healthier lifestyle with your family?
We’ve had Emergen-C for a little over a week and I can tell you it’s tasty and something your kids will actually drink. It dissolves well in water and taste great. They have several flavors which include Fruit Punch, Grape and Orange. All delicious.
