Todays spotlight is on Naturvits and their fantastic range of chewable supplements to get those vitamins you need, for adults and for your children too!
Getting your daily dose of everything you need can be hard, it can be more challenging to get with children too. Recently I have had to take a good look at my health and have completely changed my diet. I have also been taking vitamin supplements to make sure I am getting all the vitamins and nutrients my body needs.I have also taken to given my children vitamin supplements too. For the past month we have been trying 2 products from the Nutravits range and I wanted to share out thoughts with you, not just from an adult point of view but also a childs.

Mark and myself have been trying out the NaturVits Omega-3 With Vitamin D3 for adults. Now for those of you out there who don’t have issues swallowing the ‘horse tranqualiser’ size vitamins you often get in packets, trying a chewable vitamin may not appeal. However, I struggle at times to swallow tablets and to find a vitamin that not only tastes good but also gives me a good dose of omega-3 and is chewable is fantastic!
Mark wasn’t overly keen on the taste of the NaturVits Omega-3 With Vitamin D3 but he has far more of a sweet tooth than I do. They are like ‘jelly sweets’ and have a slightly ‘wet’ feel to them. Taste wise, they are like a citrus flavour, more on the side of a natural fruit flavour than a sweet and I found them more than palatable. In fact, I quite liked them. Mark felt they tasted a little more lemon like but found them very easy to take still.
Chewing one takes literally seconds and you only take one a day. Personally I think these are a great way of getting your daily amount of Omega-3 and being in a foil pack, means you can leave them in your bag in case you forget to take one in the morning and take them on the go (Even without a drink as they are chewable!). I was never keen on chewable vitamins as they often tasted chalky, but chewing on a jelly like sweet is actually pleasant. I’ve been really impressed with these and have already repurchased them.
My children are various ages and there was VERY mixed views on whether they liked the taste of the NaturVits Omega-3 + Vit D3 Kids. They all agreed they were easy to take and eat, being chewable it was easier to explain to eat it like you would a sweet, rather than a tablet which you need to swallow. Here are their thoughts (In their own words);
C (13 year old daughter) – “They tasted like oranges and lemons mixed together. I didn’t mind the feel of them as they were a lot like a sweet but they did taste a bit sharp. I would chew them quickly and then swallow. Once I had swallowed it the taste was gone.”
A (11 year old daughter) – “I really liked them. They tasted nice and reminded me of Haribo’s but with a wet feeling to them.”
B (10 year old daughter) – “I liked the taste of them but didn’t like how they felt slimy. Once it was in my mouth I didn’t mind, I just didn’t like the feel of them on my fingers. They taste nice like oranges.”
C (7 year old son) – “I loved them! They taste good and are like sweets!“
So, as you can see they all had varied feelings on them but not one of them minded taking the vitamins. Having tried one myself (What kind of reviewer would I be if I didn’t), I felt they tasted almost identical to the adult version both in texture and flavour. I do feel they are a great way of getting your kids to have their regular dose of Omega-3 and D3, especially if you have picky eaters!
Over all, I really liked the products from Nutravits and would like to see their range expand. I am a huge fan of chewable vitamins, they certainly make my life easier and are great for children too.
Lots of Love,
