Emergen-C Kidz Vitamins Review and Giveaway

As a parent I do all I can to keep my daughter as healthy as possible. I believe that vitamin supplements can help with this. Emergen-C Kidz vitamins contain vitamin C, antioxidants, B vitamins, and electrolytes. They are made with kids in mind with flavors they love – Fruit Punch, Orange, and Grape.

My daughter is not able to take a long list of prescription medicines including many antibiotics because of a cardiac condition. She has a sleep disorder and needs to stay hydrated to prevent other medical problems. Antioxidants can help prevent sickness, electrolytes can help with hydration and the combination of ingredients can increase energy (These statement have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration).

When I buy vitamin supplements I look at all of the ingredients and the safety of the product. I found the Emergenc-E uses natural ingredients instead of food dyes and is free of gluten from wheat, oats, rye, and barley. From the Emergen-C site:

We test 100% of our incoming raw materials to confirm that what we received is what we ordered. We use very sophisticated laboratory equipment that takes a near infra red fingerprint of all incoming raw materials, and it compares that fingerprint to our approved raw materials library. If it does not match, the ingredient is rejected.

Another thing I like is that Emergen-C contributes 25 cents for each box sold to Vitamin Angels, who provide essential nutrients for one child for a year. You can help out by taking the Emergen-C Kidz Pledge on Facebook because another 25 cents will be donated for each pledge. You can also learn more about their vitamin supplements on their page.

Review– Emergen-C Kidz is a fizzy drink mix packet. For ages 2 & 3,  mix half a packet daily with 2-4 oz of water and for ages 4 & up, mix one packet daily with 4-6 oz of water. The more water you add, the less flavor. Play around with it a bit to see how much water to add for your child’s taste preference. My daughter doesn’t like drinks that are too sweet, so we went with the 6 oz. of water. I understand the need for individual packets, but I can’t help but worry about the waste this makes. And I wish the boxes were made from recycled material.

  1. Mine get it.. Big guy has problems with chewing different textures and the odor of some foods he cannot handle. This leads to not eating a lot of healthy choices of foods that the other kiddo’s can and will eat.. the girls are in sports, they eat healthy, with their growing bodies and the extra energy they burn with sports.. I don’t think it will hurt them with a little backup of vitamins.

    Most of the time I’d rather eat a nutritious diet that provides all the necessary vitamins. However, during the cold and flu season, I like to up our vitamin C intake.

  10. We do supplement with vitamins because although I try to make sure my kids are getting everything they need there are times where they may not eat everything offered to them so at least I know they are getting what they need some other way!

  18. I have my daughter take a vitamin because as she is a vegetarian I want to make sure she gets all that she needs.

    I don’t see anything wrong with giving your children vitamin supplements. There are times where my girls don’t get all the vitamins that they should, but I can easily make up for that with vitamin supplements.
