That's my Kate...stylish, brave, kind, and super picky. Sometimes her picky eating really bothers me. I want her to be strong and healthy, but aside from artichokes and zucchini, she is not a vegetable eater...at all. She hates the texture and taste of broccoli, doesn't care for carrots and will not even look at asparagus. I have tried everything, and honestly, she has tried them too...she just doesn't like them. In the past, I've tried some of the supplement shakes for kids, but let's be honest, they are just gross and grainy!
I have a vitamin D deficiency, so making sure that Kate gets the vitamins and calcium she needs is really important to me. I don't want her to suffer the same pain and discomfort that I did for years. Well, folks, I have finally found something that works for both of us and we are ready for building strong bones together!
Kate and I both decided to try Viactiv Soft Chews! First, let me tell you...they are actually yummy! No weird vitaminy aftertaste, and they come in milk chocolate and caramel flavors...Kate loves the chocolate, and I am partial to the caramel!
Can I tell you how hard it is to get her to take vitamins normally? It's torture I tell ya! Well, she popped this little baby right in her mouth!
She loved it, and actually asked if she could have another...really? Another vitamin? Unheard of around here, peeps!
Okay...let's get to the mom talk, the real deal. Why is it so important for her to start taking these at her age? Because 80% of teenage girls have calcium deficient diets, and the teenage years are a crucial time for bone health, since 95% of her bone building occurs by the time she is twenty. I don't know about you, but that makes me really want to be sure she is getting everything she needs for healthy bone growth, now!
