Spring is here and we are all excited to wear shorts and t-shirts. I am instantly reminded that my oldest son seriously looks like a piece of wet spaghetti, he is that lanky and lean. Since his early arrival into the world I have NEVER been able to fatten him up. Making sure he eats enough and has hit all the food groups within his day is like a mission for me. My younger son, meh-total second child syndrome, he’s a picky eater but he’ll survive. Well, maybe I’m not quite that bad but Smashie is a healthy height and weight so I don’t feel like I need to fret as much with him. Obviously, I care about the daily nutritional requirements of both my little dudes and there are some days where I am certain we have not met them, not even close.
For our family taking a complete multi-vitamin is part of our daily routine. It helps to give me some peace of mind that we are meeting the daily vitamin and mineral needs of our boys. Needs that on a bad day the six cartons of yogourt and embarrassing amounts of fishie crackers are definitely not providing. It can feel like I am making a parenting step forward in an otherwise crazy day. So to kick off spring I was asked to try out honibe Honey Gummies Kids Complete. Saying yes was easy-we needed a little nudge back to a healthier lifestyle again after the long winter.
The Honey Gummies taste yummy and are a nice texture. I know that is a weird thing to lead with but if those two aspects were missing it wouldn’t matter about the rest. It would be end game at our house. Luckily, the Honey Gummies were a hit in that respect so I looked into what sets honibe apart from the rest of the pack. Honibe uses pure Canadian honey and have followed Health Canada’s standards for vitamins and minerals. What they haven’t done is add gluten, dairy, artificial colors, flavors or preservatives. And I also found out why the vitamins seem to clump together more than other vitamins-they are coated in beeswax instead of sugar or chemicals to keep them from sticking together. Who knew that other companies used stuff like that to keep them loose in the bottle? Yesterday I found it an inconvenience to have to try and get them out of the bottle–today I totally appreciated why I had to use a butter knife to unstick them from each other.
Lastly, my nerdy side LOVED learning so much about bees and they have a fun Kids Activities page on their site that my boys enjoyed. It was kind of neat to see them wanting to learn more about bees and honey, especially Smashie who has been a little weary of bees when he is outside. He has been talking about how important bees are since he watched a little video about them. I even saw him watching some bees and talking to them when they were on some flowers in the backyard.
