Vemma NEXT - Nutrition for the Next Generation

When Kim, an independent contractor, contacted me asking if I wanted to try a month supply of her liquid  vitamin for children (she referenced this post of mine in her pitch), I said why not?

From the website:  "Unfortunately many children have poor eating habits, often eating junk foods, and even skipping meals. The result is a shortfall of balanced nutrition that growing bodies depend on for development.  Vemma NEXT can give you peace of mind knowing your child is getting an enhanced full spectrum of vitamins, antioxidants and over 65 plant-sourced minerals."

So I attempted to have my guinea pigs three boyz try it out:

1.  Eldest (8 years old):  Took one look at it and said No Way.  He's my child who NEVER wants to try anything new...unless it's his own idea.  (0 for 1)

2.  Middle (5 years old):  Wanting to do something his older brother wouldn't, Middle gamely stepped up to try the liquid vitamin.  He drank it, but made it clear that he wasn't crazy about it.  After that, I couldn't get him to drink it again.  (Damn, 0 for 2)

3.  Baby (4 years old):

He likes it; he really likes it!  Baby is my adventurous eater of the bunch.  He will try any.thing.  He gave it a thumbs up, Mom!  And proceeded to be the only one to drink his morning vitamin.  (Final tally:  1 for 3)

(But in all honesty?  The regular old chewable SpongeBob/Spiderman/Flintstones vitamins work for me.  When I'm in a hurry in the mornings, trying to get everyone fed and dressed, I don't want to have to pour and measure a vitamin shot for 3 children.)

Vemma NEXT has partnered with the Children's Miracle Network, so for every month's supply you buy, Vemma will donate a month's supply on your behalf to a child in need.

Vemma NEXT can be purchased here at the Vemma store.
