Treehouse Vitamin Gummies {Review & Giveaway}

vitamins

When I was a kid my brother and I fought over who got first pick of our Flintstone vitamins. We were fighting, of course, over which colour we got each morning. Taking that vitamin was not a challenge for us since they so very closely resembled candy and that was definitely in our wheelhouse. I am comfortable in saying I wouldn’t give my child that kind of vitamin these days given the type of ingredients generally found in children’s supplements (sugar, artificial flavours and colours and gelatin to name just a few). However, having vegetarian children while living in the great white north does make me want to provide them with some supplementation, especially B12 and vitamin D.

I was given a variety of Treehouse Vitamin Gummies to try out and I have to say they are a big hit around here for both my son and for me.

The Treehouse line is made by Canadian company Webber Naturals, which some people may already be familiar with. The gummies that we tried are free of:

• high fructose corn syrup (used in most other gummies)

• aspartame

• artificial colours, flavours, or preservatives

• hydrogenated oils

• genetically modified ingredients (GMOs)

• gelatin

• dairy

• gluten

I also spoke to Naturopathic Doctor Joyce Johnson who pointed out that while the gummie variety of vitamin may contain a bit of sugar (in this case evaporated cane juice), they appeal to most children, and this comes in handy if a child is resistant to taking supplements. She also pointed out that while the multi-vitamin option is a great overall supplement, in the germy cold and flu months it is advisable to take extra vitamin C and D3. I had assumed that a multi would cover the bases so this was particularly informative for me.

My son loved these vitamins. And I mean loved them. He is used to taking a hard chewable and I don’t know if I will ever be able to go back to that form of vitamin again. I will definitely be stocking up on these once our supply runs out and will be giving them to the baby once I am sure she will chew it a bit before swallowing.

    I take them myself and my children take a multivitamin. Although in the summer I think they get enough fresh fruits and vegetables to get what they need in their diet. It’s winter that I’m not so sure about.
