Getting to get my 12 year old to take his vitamins can be a major pain in the butt. He doesn't like the taste of chewable vitamins, and he has a hard time swallowing pills. We've even tried a lot of vitamin beverages in the past, but most of them have an odd, chalky taste. So while I have always insisted on my son taking his vitamins, it's not something that he has ever really enjoyed doing.
That's why I was so excited to learn about Children's Oxylent. You see, Children's Oxylent is unique because it puts the fun back into taking vitamins. Children's Oxylent is free of gluten, dairy, caffeine, and artificial colors and flavors. In addition to that, this drink is sugar-free, and is sweetened with a little Stevia. It's also a good source of iron, which is something that many kids' supplements are lacking.
This product comes in convenient little pouches that can be mixed into 4-6oz of water. Each box contains 30 pouches, which is a whole month's supply! What happens next is the fun part....When you prepare Children's Oxylent, it becomes a fizzy, bubbly, sparkling fruit punch! Yep, the kiddos will think they're drinking soda, and you will know that they're actually getting real nutrition! Whether you let them in on that little secret is completely up to you. (Wink, wink!)
My son loves Children's Oxylent, and asks for it every day. He thinks of it as a treat, so it takes the pain out of trying to convince him to take his vitamins. He loves the berry flavor and the fizz, and I love the great vitamins he's gaining. I even tasted this myself, and it's actually very good. There's no weird after-taste, and no chalkiness. You know how many vitamins have a metallic taste to them? Well, this doesn't. At all. it just tastes like a fruity, berry punch. So obviously, it's a win-win situation!
Take a look at some Children's Oxylent prepared and ready to drink:
Overall, we're loving Children's Oxylent. My son has never been eager to take his vitamins until now, so I no longer have to beg, plead and fight for him to do so. The folks at Oxylent have made it fun and tasty, and I happen to think they're absolute geniuses! (Hey, fighting with a preteen is no fun!) I would definitely recommend this product to any families with children. The kids will love the bubbly, berry drink, so getting their daily dose of vitamins will no longer be a chore.

This would be great for my upcoming surgery. I can only have liquids before and after surgery for almost a month. It would ensure that I get my necessary vitamins.

I can get them to eat the gummies ones, but that's it. I used to put a powder vitamin in their milk.

I just wanted to leave a quick comment to say that your blog was nice. I found it on Google search after going through a lot of other information that was not really relevant. I thought I would find this much earlier considering how good the information is.
