Syd is 6 now, and she’s still a fussy eater. She’s always had food issues – probably brought on by the dairy and soya intolerances she had as a baby and toddler. Thankfully, she has grown out of those now, and can have everything in moderation these days. I am still painfully aware that she doesn’t get enough of certain vitamins and minerals though, so she’s always had a daily supplement.
We were recently sent some of the new Bassetts Vitamins Omega-3 + Multivitamins Orange Flavour Pastilles to try, and Syd was keen to give them a whirl…
I was happy to read that they are made with natural flavours and colours, and there’s no added sugar. Each pastille contains Vitamin B6, which helps to support normal psychological function. It also contains Vitamin B5, which contributes to mental performance to support a smart way to start the day.
The RRP of Bassetts Vitamins Omega-3 + Multivitamins Orange Flavour Pastilles is £5.50 for a pack of 30 pastilles – this works out at just over 18p a day.
Bassetts Vitamins say: Omega-3 + Multivitamins Orange Flavour pastilles are the ideal companion for supporting even the fussiest of little eaters*, so it’s no surprise that parents love them…because kids do!
They help to support and celebrate those fun moments families share in their daily lives… never a dull moment? Let’s keep it that way!” – I love this message! I for one am keen to make sure my kids get all the help possible to stay happy and healthy!
So… what did Syd think?
I asked her what she thought of them and she said…. “They taste like really juicy, yummy jelly babies, but with more juice.”
I asked Syd to draw a picture of what they taste like, and she said “They taste like super juicy jelly babies, mum… Can you draw it for me”? So I did…
(Obviously, graphic design was never my strong suit!)
So… Will I buy them again? Yes! Will I still try to get Syd to eat tomatoes and fish? Yes. Will I be as annoyed when she pushes them away and refuses point blank to try them? Probably. Will I worry less about it? Yes.
*Just a reminder that food supplements should not be used as a substitute for a healthy and balanced diet!
