I usually buy whatever multi-vitamins that are on offer for our children during the winter months to help boost their systems. Our children are 5 & 6, are in school and spend a lot of their free time playing outside, so they are really testing their immune systems every day.
I had previously bought Haliborange multivitamins Calcium & Iron (orange flavour) but the packet is still on top of the press only half used as they complain they dont taste nice and are like chalk. I have to bribe them to take them and I often find the remanants in the bin ! I certainly hope they have created a calcium & iron version which are also more child friendly and tastier than the chalk version on top of my press.
However there was no complaints with them taking the Orange Softies every day which have Omega 3 and multi-vitamins A, D, E, C and B6, B12 & B5. I understand these should boost mental performance , vision and the immune system. The children love the taste of these soft orange pastilles and have no problem taking them every day. I think it helps in the winter months to boost their systems with multivitamins to be sure they are getting everything they need to be strong and healthy. I think its a good habit to get them into taking multivitamins on a regular basis.
The product is well designed and the use of bright colours is appealing to children. The cartoon of the orange character is also suited to children. The container is also child locked which is a must for young ones.
I would definitely recommend these to friends and family and I will certainly be buying more of them and will try other products in the range.
This brings me to my 1st worry about any kids vitamins incl these. They taste' yummy '(obviously I had to confirm this in the interest of the trial lol). & are packaged in bright colours which, of course, makes them very appealing to young children.
The vitamins are perfect for kids as they contain Omega 3 which I try to supplement for my two as much as possible for brain development. However it's usually a battle as many Omega supplements have a' fishy' taste but these taste great & don't leave an after-taste at all. Also 2 of these contain the recommended daily amount of Vitamins D, which is highly recommended by Drs as our diet & weather conditions make this vitamin hard to get in sufficient quantities. I always try to remember to give the kids a vitamin D drop every day but it's easy to forget unlike these vits that the kids never forget to ask for!
All in all these are a good all rounder which kids are happy to take & eager to remind you about, due to their pleasant taste.
My Daughter is very fussy when it comes to taking anything vitamins wise for us but getting her to take these Softies twice a day was a doddle!! It’s like a sweet in the morning and last thing at night and since she has begun taking them she is yet to forget a single dose.
She is not a massive fruit and vegetable eater so by her taking these Multivitamins daily I do not have to worry about her not getting her fully daily vitamin requirements. I love the fact that these have flaxseed oils included, something I tried & failed for her to take for me before so along with the added Vitamin A, C & B5 I know her immune system is built up and ready to fight off any colds or flu's that may come her way this Winter.
I have noticed she is sleeping along better at night and her concentration & energy levels have improved substantially. The only problem I had was the child safe cap which I found tough to open for the first time but after that it was good to go.
I am very happy with this product as is my Daughter and I would highly recommend them to any parents of young children. I know my daughter shall be taking them for the coming months to keep her healthy.
Smallest girl was in charge of the daily doling out of the squishy 'jelly medicine' as it has come to be known chez nous, unfortunately for her the cap proved a bit of a challenge and she needed assistance to open it - reassuring for parents out there it's easier than some bottles to open so full marks there Haliborange bottlers!
The strawberry flavour was a definite hit - strawberries are the berry of choice in this house - alone or smothered in aforementioned spread. We had tried something orangey before but they weren't too keen.
I had heard of and had bought this range before this trial - it is my go to brand I always feel confident using Haliborange it is definitely a brand I trust and would definitely recommend it.
As a parent I am always trying to find easy non battle starting ways of getting goodness into the girls and this is definitely an easy route, especially now with them back in school in the presence of all sorts of colds and bugs.
Thank you Haliborange & Mummypages for including us in this trial.
My little boy who is 5 is very fussy about vitamins. I have tried so many multivitamins on the market and everyone of them he didnt like the taste. I was at my wits end because I wanted to get extra vitamins into his diet because he always gets colds in the winter, and started primary school this year.
I was so surprised when i gave him one of the Haliborange and he said he loved them and asked for another.
I had to try one for myself and they are so tasty.
My son has been taking these every morning for the last week and loves them.
The packaging is eye catching and is appealing to children with the characters on the front. Im glad that it has a child safety lid as it is a must espically with younger kids.
I'm recommending this product to all my friends and family and the mums at the school gate.
I will definitely be buying these in the future and my little boy gives them a thumbs up.
I have heard of Omega 3, but to be honest, there’s so much noise out there about what’s good and important, I tend to lose track. I often have the family on a multivitamin, especially at this time of year to try to ward off colds and flus. I do think it’s important to take multivitamins, no matter how good our diet is, you just don't get everything you need, so taking a multivitamin is something I believe in for the whole family.
I think the Haliborange multivitamin is fantastic, and it’s perfectly suited to kids given the design and flavour – being health conscious for a kid should be fun, and Haliborange have made it so.
I would recommend the Haliborange range to others, I will buy the Mr Men Little Miss one again, the kids are demanding it lol.
Thank you for letting us test them out.
Their ages are 12, 11, 9,8 and 3. I wasn’t aware of this range of vitamins before the trial. We tried the Haliborange softies Omega 3 multivitamins orange flavour.
I have to say the children were very excited to try them and they weren’t disappointed. The packaging was very appealing to them and they loved the flavour and texture of them. They reminded me every day and considered them a treat! I will absolutely buying these again and would absolutely recommend them for families.
