As a registered dietitian, I make it a real point to feed myself and and my family whole foods and real ingredients in attempt to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Of course, we do have fruity cereal hanging out in our pantry, but for the most part – we stick to the ‘good stuff’.
When I became pregnant with Parker and Jolie 3 years ago (still can’t wrap my head around the fact that its been that long..) I, of course, started taking prenatal supplements – as I would recommend to all my pregnant clients. Something you probably don’t know about me… I do not swallow pills well AT ALL. I will literally ‘suffer through’ a splitting headache, you know, the kind that you get behind your eyes, before I’ll pop a pill for relief. I have been that way my entire life- I hate swallowing pills. Antibiotics are killer for me. I spent the majority of my pregnancy with Parker and Jolie fighting off upper respiratory infections, and every time I went to the doctor it was 10 more days of those terrible yellow horse pills. Those supplements were enormous.. and tasted TERRIBLE. Both of them would sit in the back of my throat and there was nothing I could do to make it go down. It was my discovery of gummy vitamins that seemed to solve all my pill-swallowing problems. Not to mention, they taste good, too!
vitafusion™ is rooted in the belief that healthy habits should be enjoyable so that you’ll keep on doing them. This healthy habit for me is actually taking the supplements I’m required to maintain the nutritional status I need. Halfway through my first pregnancy, my OB suggested that I start taking a vitamin D supplement to assist in bone health.* It can occur as a natural declination as a female, too, not just to those of us who are pregnant. The search was on for a gummy vitamin to assist. No horse pills? No problem. vitafusion™ has got me covered.
The makers of vitafusion™
offer a pretty robust portfolio of vitamins, minerals and other dietary supplements to meet your health needs through every stage of life. The convenience of having these vitamins available to me wherever I need them was the best part. At that point in our lives, we were venturing out very far from the house with two wee babies.
vitafusion™ gummy vitamins are available at club, mass, drug and grocery stores nationwide including: Costco, Walmart, Target and Walgreens.
