Summer is such an odd time nutritionally. On the one hand, there is an abundance of fresh fruits and vegetables packed with nourishment. On the other hand, burgers, hot dogs, ice cream and Popsicles are common indulgences. At the end of the day, making sure that my boys get all their vitamins and minerals isn’t always a sure thing. That’s why I like giving them a multivitamin to make sure that they have all their essential nutrients.
Recently, I got the chance to review the fabulous vitamins from Nordic Naturals. This company makes high-quality vitamin supplements for both adults and children and I was delighted when I got to test out two of the company’s most popular products for myself.
I received the Nordic Berries Multivitamin Treats and the Children’s DHA to review. The first thing I noticed when I pulled out the bottles was that the Nordic Berries were flavoured with cloudberries. I was introduced to these unique tangy berries with a slightly smoky aftertaste the Christmas before last when my family spent the holidays with my husband’s parents and siblings. In Quebec and most of Ontario, the berries are called bakeapples and are an incredibly tasty and treasured delicacy.
The Nordic Berries vitamins were just as delicious as cloudberries themselves and the entire family fell in love with them at once. The vitamins have 100% of the daily value of many essential nutrients including Zinc, Vitamin A and Vitamin C. They are also pectin-based, as opposed to most gelatin-based vitamins, so they are suitable for vegetarians, and they are also allergen-free!
I tried my best to save these little berries for Zackary and Benjamin, but I often found my husband sneaking one out of the bottle when he was taking his vitamins and I have to admit that I was guilty of helping myself to one every now and again too. They really are that good!
The Children’s DHA is one of a variety of omega-3 supplements that Nordic Naturals offers and I loved the fact that the vitamins came in a chewable soft gel. I tried one when the bottle first arrived and I loved the tasty strawberry flavour. When I bit into the vitamin, I got a bit of a surprise when I learned the centre of the vitamin was filled with purified arctic cod liver oil. The oil was tasteless so that the flavour of the strawberry soft gel wasn’t affected in any way, but it did catch me off guard to suddenly have oil in my mouth!
Zackary didn’t mind at all though, and neither did Benjamin, even though he has shown a dislike of oily textures before. I was so glad to see that both of my sons enjoyed the Children’s DHA!
Nordic Naturals also carries a large range of Omega oil products for adults, children and even pets! From DHA formulas to balanced combinations of Omega-3, Omega-6 and Omega-9 oils to Omega oils combined with Vitamin D for increased effectiveness, there are delicious Nordic Naturals products for every member of the family! All Nordic Naturals products feature the Omega oils in their natural triglyceride form to ensure maximum absorption by the body and the company’s patented purification process ensures that all of the oil used in the vitamins is completely pure and fresh.
I really enjoyed both of the children’s vitamin products I received from Nordic Naturals and I can’t wait to try some of the other products the company offers. The children’s Omega-3 Gummies look especially fun! Zackary and Benjamin both love their “sugar berries” and “fish balls” and there is no question that I’ll be buying the products in the future. Just having the chance to enjoy the tart-sweet taste of cloudberries again is enough to ensure that I’ll be getting another bottle of Nordic Berries! To make sure that your kids are getting the nutrition that they need every day, check out Nordic Naturals children’s vitamins for yourself. They’re tasty, healthy and, best of all, your kids will love them!
