Kids’ Vitamins That Rock

I’m not in any way related to Nostradamus, but I think I can boldly make a fearless forecast that my 6-year old daughter is going to grow up to be one of TIME magazine’s Top 100 Most Influential People in the World.  Even at her present age, she is starting to show signs of how she manages to affect her classmates and friends.  Her sphere of influence extends from dolls, to books, and now, even to vitamins.

Vitamins?  Since when did kids love taking their vitamins?  Just recently, I introduced her to Vitapops- the first pop rocks vitamins for kids- and she instantly fell in love with it.  She brought some to school the other day, and it turned out to be a big hit with her friends as well.

Vitapops are orange-flavored vitamins which come in pop rocks form- the ones which pop, fizzle and crack inside your mouth.  It’s the first of its kind here in the Philippines.

Although it tastes like candy, it has only 1/5 of the sugar content of your usual vitamins.  And because it’s vitamin C in Sodium Ascorbate form, it doesn’t make your kid and may be taken on an empty stomach.  So it’s safe for him to take his vitamins even before he’s had his breakfast.

As my daughter steps it up a notch on the popularity scale, I’m assured that she’s getting the vitamin C her body needs.  So, I guess it’s true: being healthy CAN be fun!

  7. This will be a hit for kids as they love to eat candies that pops in the mouth. I can’t remember the name of that candy here. But anyways, the maker of this vitamin really knows how to get the kids and incorporating fun things for healthy cause.

  17. Interesting. I wasn’t able to make it to the launch since I had prior commitments but this looks like something my kids would like.

  18. Kids would definitely have an easier time with popping vitamins. At least, they won’t be afraid of vita-pops and would even entice them to be healthier.

  19. i don’t let my little one eat sweets but this maybe an exception. :)

  20. That is great! I’m still single but I have 4 nephews/nieces and it’s not easy to give them meds! Their vitamins should be tasty too if not they will not take it. ;(

  21. Hehe. I love your fearless forecast, mommy! Meron palang ganitong vitamins. Maybe it’s time that I let my kids try some new vitamins. We’ve been very loyal to Ceelin and Cherifer since they were born eh.

  23. Wow! I’ve never heard of a pop rock vitamins so great job on the part of Vita Pops for thinking of such product! :) I remember enjoying my vitamin C syrup when I was still young, but I think I would’ve enjoyed it more if it were in a pop rock form.. ^^

  24. When it comes to kids, everything has to be fun or else they won’t take it. Sounds like this is one great vitamins for them. Haven’t heard of this before, I don’t think. Looks like she enjoys it. :)

    by the way, love the “about pepper” part in your blog, is that part of the theme or is it part of google authorship {did i get the right term?}? ;)

    • Thanks :). I’m not exactly sure about the “about pepper” thing, as it was the programmer who did that :). So, I guess she tweaked with the theme or something :)

  28. I used to love candy pops like this. But that was just plain candies, not vitamins. I guess this is really a great news that kids can now enjoy candies the healthy way.

  29. Yes, healthy can be fun with VitaPops! My son loves it, too!
