My kids love having something fun to drink, and I’m sure your kids do too. Usually my kids get milk, water, or juice (and way too much of it really). If they are with grandma, she will give them soda even though I ask her not to (which really irritates me I must add). I also try to give my kids a vitamin, but I usually forget (vitamins for myself or for the kids are not something I am good at remembering). So when I was presented with the idea of trying out Oxylent for the kids I was really excited.
“Children’s Oxylent is an effervescent daily multivitamin/mineral drink that nurtures, strengthens, and protects growing minds and bodies, specially formulated for ages 4 years and over” (Vitalah News Release, March 2012).
As soon as we got the box in the mail and I told the kids it was something for them, they were both really excited to try it out. Unfortunately it was a really busy day and we were running late, so we had to put our taste test on hold for another day. The next day my daughter did not forget she had this cool new drink to try out. She begged me for a glass of it, and of course I obliged since we needed to try it out anyway. I mixed it up and gave it to her and she drank the whole thing down in no time! She even told me that she really liked it (since my husband had been saying to her how she wouldn’t like it, it was too fizzy for her – he loves to tease her!). She just had to prove him wrong, lol. Well being the curious cat that I am, I had to try it as well. I made myself a glass and surprisingly I really enjoyed the taste as well. Both of my kids seem to like the taste, and I like that it is a vitamin drink in disguise! I cannot say whether or not it has any health benefits for them, but according to the packaging it is loaded with beneficial nutrients and vitamins.
