Covering the bases with Bassetts

While both of my boys enjoy a well balanced diet, packed with fruit and veg and are fairly open minded to trying new things, we are a very busy and active family and always on the go and while I always cook from scratch when we are rushed we sometimes opt for the safer meals such as pesto pasta or baked potatoes that are quick to whip up and I know they will enjoy. On more organised weeks or when we are not travelling I like to explore with new dishes, some have great success and other times not so much as my eldest can be fussy at times and while my youngest isn't he tends to follow suit with whatever his big brother is doing.

Like most parents I take an interest in my children's nutritional intake and want to know I have all bases covered and there are times when we have hardly been at home between school, after-school activities and weekend breaks away. The trouble with kids is finding a multivitamin that tastes nice and isn't a chore to get them to take and can easily slot into a quick morning routine. We were recently sent some Bassetts Vitamins Omega-3 Multivitamins Orange Flavour Pastilles so I was keen to see what the boys would think as we have tried a few different kinds over the past few years and some didn't go down very well. On first impressions the boys liked the look of them as they are soft and chewy and suitable for children 3-6 year olds, they are also orange flavour which is good because they really enjoy citrus fruits of all kind and what I am really happy about is they don't have any added sugar and are made with natural flavours and colours.

My eldest now asks without prompting for his multivitamin each morning which is great because when we are rushing I can be a bit forgetful. They have both been taking one each morning without any issues and I think because they are not overly sweet they don't ask for anymore but still see it as a delicious extra at breakfast time and have remarked at how Juicy they are and even did a little drawing of orange juice in the sunshine as their interpretation of what they taste like. It also has to be said that it gives me a little bit of peace of mind knowing they contain

Vitamin B6 to support normal psychological function and Vitamin B5 which contributes to normal mental performance. It's just so easy to add to the daily routine and these are a very gentle way of making sure they are not running low

*Just a reminder that food supplements should not be used as a substitute for a healthy and balanced diet!

  1. I'm a big fan of supplements for kids ( and grown ups ) and Bassetts are my favourite!!

  2. These sound like some great supplements for kids. I think it is always a good idea to make sure you know your little ones are getting the best.

  3. I used to give Jake some of the Bassetts vitamins when he was younger. A great idea to ensure kids get the vitamins and minerals they need

  4. It's good that you have a set routine for vitamins, I think that is the hardest part, remembering to take them daily!

  5. I used to love taking vitamins like these ones as a child and it won't be long before my eldest daughter is old enough for them. It's so much more convenient and easier to remember!

  6. We are huge fans of Bassetts simply because the kids love the taste of them and its easy to get them into them ha

  7. These look like a convenient way to make sure the kids are getting all their essential vitamins :)

  8. We were sent a big supply when we worked with Bassetts during the summer and the kids have really got into the routine of having one each morning.

  9. I heard about Bassetts before and it looks like a great product. I am looking forward to use it next time!
