Redoxon Kids Vitamin C | Little Bursts of Sunshine!

Besides taking Vitamin C to treat colds, this essential nutrient also helps us to detoxify, promote healing in our cells, minimise bruising from falls and scrapes, protect us from pollution, support the body's immune system, and much more. That is, if we get enough of it to experience these health benefits.

We can't make Vitamin C in our own bodies and as much as we would like to, sadly our diets don't usually consist of enough raw fruits and vegetables to meet our daily requirements. And this is especially true for the kids, like Lil Pumpkin, who can be picky with food at times.
Redoxon, Singapore's best-selling Vitamin C brand, has just released its latest Redoxon Kids Vitamin C gummies. I love its effervescent Vitamin C tablet that makes a healthy, yummy fizzy drink, and I'm glad they now have these healthy, yummy gummies for Lil Pumpkin too!

I'm a working mum and I love cooking for my family with fresh food, but usually that happens only during the weekends. Dining out doesn't mean eating unhealthily, but it's a little harder to make sure that the food has maintained its optimum nutrition level. Most nutritious content will be destroyed with cutting, cooking, storing and other forms of processing that we can't control outside the home kitchen :/ A dietary supplement cannot substitute a balanced and healthy diet, but at least it helps in making sure the Lil Pumpkin get enough of what she needs to grow strong, and keeps us "immune" from worry!

Redoxon Kids Vitamin C gummies are sold in fun mini packs likes these {25 gummies for S$3.95}, or in bottles {100 gummies for S$14.50}. The mini packs are resealable and great for travel.

These lip-smacking orange-flavoured gummies are reaaaaally delicious. I know because I tried a few haha. They are like little bursts of golden-orange sunshine filled with Vitamin C goodness! Once Lil Pumpkin tasted them, she couldn't stop and wanted to reach for more but I had to stop her to keep within the recommended intake. As she’s only 4 years old, she eats just one daily after dinner.

Redoxon Kids Vitamin C gummies is currently available at Guardian, Watsons, Unity, supermarkets, and other leading retailers. Redoxon also has a whole range of Vitamin C products for the entire family, including effervescent tablets, chewable tablets and capsules for adults and kids.

P.S. The New Age Parents is running a  Facebook contest for the Redoxon Kids Vitamin C campaign. Hope on over to name the mascot and you stand a chance to win up to S$200 CapitalLand vouchers!

Just ONE a day? I'd be complaining. :)

I'm actually surfing iHerb for something like this. My JE takes sweets and I thought why not give her vitamins in sweeties form. There's one with a daily dosage of 4, maybe that'll be more satisfying than ONE!

Missus Tay: Oh these would be perfect! And so conveniently available too.

Often times I make more on the weekends to last through Monday. I've also been using the crock pot. It is so hard having time to do it all!

That product looks amazing! The character on the packaging is so fun! I love the photos you took to!

In the last 2 years they started selling Emergen-C Vitamin drinks for kids. Before they were just sold to adults. When the kids seem like they won't drink a whole lot I mix up one of those drinks. The boys love them.

I love the new products they are coming out that kids like to take. My youngest HATED her vitamins so much a few years ago, she would cry whenever she had to take them. Thankfully we found some gummies that she loves, much like those you mentioned.
