*Post in association with Bassetts Vitamins
The summer holidays have drawn to a close and it’s been a summer full of fun and adventure. There’s been day trips, play dates in the park, time spent at home playing with trains, cars and planes, the paddling pool has been out and whilst it’s been so much fun, it’s also been really tricky making sure Olly eats properly throughout the day. I’ve never known him to be so hungry, all of the time! We’ve recently been sent Bassetts Vitamins Omega-3 + Multivitamins Orange Flavour Pastilles for Olly to try out as they contain necessary nutrients he needs to help support a growing five year old!
I was really keen for him to try these out as I’m well aware he’s a fussy little boy when it comes to mealtimes and I’m sure he’s missing out on some of the necessary nutrients. Bassetts Vitamins have launched their Omega-3 + Multivitamins Orange Flavour Pastilles which have a juicy orange flavour and they’re soft and chewy pastilles which help little ones eat them. It’s good to know that they’re made from natural flavours and colours, and there’s no added sugar.
Bassetts Vitamins Omega-3 + Multivitamins Orange Flavour Pastilles contain all the benefits of the usual Bassetts Vitamins’ much-loved multivitamins but have additional Omega-3 in them. They also contain Vitamin B6 to support normal psychological function and Vitamin B5 which contributes to mental performance. All of which are great for supporting little ones going back to nursery or school after the summer holidays.
Olly can love his favourite food one day and the next he’s preferring something else. A while back he couldn’t get enough of cucumber or blueberries and now if I offer him them at lunchtime, he’s scrunches up his nose and wants something else! If truth be told, it’s been a hard slog getting Olly to take multivitamins. He’s always reluctant to try new things and will sometimes give a new (to him) fruit a lick before deciding he doesn’t like it and won’t ever try it again. We’ve been compromising on lots of meals at mealtimes and thankfully he has a tasty Bassetts Vitamins Omega-3 + Multivitamins Orange Flavour Pastille that provides some of the necessary nutrients. *
I asked Olly to draw me a picture of what he thought the multivitamins tasted like and I think the idea got lost in translation somewhere. He collected all the orange things we had at home (most of which we have played with or collected this Summer) and presented me with this. I like to think it’s a reflection of how colourful our summer has been, it is Olly’s favourite colour after all!
The Bassetts Vitamins Omega-3 + Multivitamins Orange Flavour Pastilles are sold in packs of 30 pastilles and have a RRP of £5.50. Bassetts Vitamins know that life can be hectic and our little darlings can be anything but darling. Thankfully they give us parents a little helping hand knowing that their multivitamins are a brilliant way to help support our children in getting the essential vitamins they need when they’re not playing ball at mealtimes!
