Natural choices for kids

Natural choices for kids Thrive Health & Nutrition Magazine

Janey Lee Grace offers up some healthier alternatives when it comes to making choices for your kids. “With four kids it’s a good thing I am willing to be ‘imperfectly natural’ as kids don’t always want to choose the healthy option”

Get snacking
With four kids it’s a good thing I am willing to be ‘Imperfectly Natural’ Children don’t often want to choose the healthiest options so you need to be a bit more creative and offer natural options that are acceptable to them. Let’s start with snacking,  I’m loving the new snack bars from Zoot,  the Boost is packed with fruit and nuts bursting with flavour. Its low in calories,  gluten free and suitable for vegetarians. A great source of fiber.

Superfood Ice Slushy
My kids love ice lollies even in winter and this is a winner,  Each YUM Slushy from Live Wheatgrass,  contains 50ml of juiced pomegranate seeds, raspberries,  red grapes,  coconut water and fresh Live Wheatgrass Juice. 100% pure ingredients,  They eat them frozen,  take to school or drink defrosted as a juice.,

Vitamin D
Better You Vitamin D for kids. Most of us are sadly lacking in Vitamin D, especially at this time of year but its so important for, immunity. Try this LuxJunior daily vitamin D oral spray (is suitable for children 5+) it, provides 400IU of vitamin D. They like it as its got a great natural peppermint flavour.

Boost Brain Power
Most of us are aware of the ‘brain power’ of Omega 3 oils,  but it’s hard to get kids to take a supplement. Bring on the Virdiikid Omega-3 oil, supplement for kids from, Viridian. Its flavoured with organic vanilla and organic orange oils. It’s also, Vegan,  Kosher and Organic., Ingredients, include:, Organic golden flax seed oil, Organic Hemp seed oil,  Organic avocado oil, Organic, pumpkin seed oil,  Organic vanilla oil,  Organic orange skin oil,  Alpha linolenic acid (Omega 3), Linoleic acid (Omega6),  Gamma linolenic acid (Omega 6), Oleic acid (Omega 9),

Make, Bathtime Fun
Kids love bubble baths but most are chemical laden and very drying for the skin., The Organic Children Bath, & Shower Berry Smoothie, really smells delicious enough, to eat,  with fruity raspberry,  apple and vanilla.Kids love, the natural bubble derived, from coconut and corn, and best of all,  its, kind to the skin.
