I thought now was a good time to share some of the supplements we have been giving the girls lately. I usually try and get them most of the vitamins and minerals they need through their diet, but sometimes we fall short. Rosie has become more of a picky eater lately too, basically living off beige foods. Also, with the COVID-19 going around our health has never been so important. When allKiDz reached out to us to try out their Anti-cold Liquid – Organic Elderberry Extract ElderCraft® and their Probiotic Gummies, I didn't hesitate. If you've been following along on my Instagram stories, you'll know I have been looking for good supplements for the girls and was unable to come across a line that I loved. allKiDz checked off all of the boxes I was looking for and carry so many great products. You can find a full list here.
SOME OF THE REASONS I LOVE allKiDz:
no hidden chemicals
no common allergens
no added sugars
made in Canada
formulated by pediatric professionals
all formulas approved by Health Canada with rigorous quality assurance
I was most excited to get the Anti-cold Liquid – Organic Elderberry Extract ElderCraft® for the girls because of COVID-19 going around right now. I have never wanted their immune systems to be stronger! It helps relieve cold/flu symptoms: fever, cough, sore throat and congestion. Now that Everly is in preschool I am realizing just how often kids pass around germs and get sick. If this can prevent that even a few times I will be so happy. Below are some of the benefits:
Immune benefit against upper respiratory tract infections; naturally helps to shorten the duration and severity of colds
Austrian (let's call it European Elderberry) elderberry loaded with large amounts of immune-boosting anti-viral natural flavonoids (anthocyanin), minerals (Zinc) and vitamins (especially Vitamin C)
Solvent-free, holistic membrane filtration process to preserve and enrich the naturally occurring active components in elderberry
Delicious elderberry flavour that kids love
No artificial flavours, colours or sweeteners. No dairy, peanuts, shellfish, soy, tree nuts, wheat or yeast
No aspartame, parabens or sodium benzoate. Non-GMO. Gluten FREE!
I also love that they have a Probiotic Gummy for kids! We are learning more and more that so much is linked to our gut health. I take a probiotic, and I love that I can start giving Everly one already as well. Anything I can do now to set my kids up for a healthy future is so important to me. Here are a few benefits of the probiotic:
Formulated with Bacillus coagulans, a potent probiotic with protective layers that increase its viability
500 million live, active cells to support kids’ daily digestive health
Promotes a favourable gut flora
Delicious yogurt flavour that kids love
No refrigeration required
No artificial flavours, colours or sweeteners. No eggs, fish, lactose, mustard, peanuts, sesame, shellfish, soy, tree nuts, wheat, yeast or preservatives. Gluten FREE!
The number one reason I love this company though, is that they give back to such worthy organizations! A portion of their proceeds goes toward the Défi sportif, supporting the children with special needs for a brighter future. They also partner with Challenge Ministries Swaziland, a non-profit organization that helps promoting and protecting the physical and mental health of children in Swaziland. AllKiDz® has purchased handmade stuffed animals from Challenge Ministries Swaziland to help children and families in need. We believe that every child deserves a strong start and a brighter future!
