Essentials Awards: Kids' Wellness Within

Super-healthy, kid-friendly supplements

The March issue of Taste for Life magazine celebrated natural and organic products for babies, kids, and teens. Parents on staff nominated favorites, and editors selected award winners in four categories.

Barleans Chocolate Silk Greens are the easiest, most delicious way to fuel your family's vitality and energy. Contains the antioxidant power of more than 5 servings of fruits and veggies. Mix with water, milk, or favorite milk alternative. 

Renew Life Kids Probiotic is a great-tasting, safe and gentle way to help replenish the balance of “good” bacteria in the intestines to support a child’s immune system. Ultimate Flora Kids Probiotic contains 3 billion live cultures per tablet, 6 kid-friendly probiotic strains, is sugar-free, and naturally sweetened with tooth-friendly xylitol.

Hero Yummi Bears Vitamin includes the full spectrum of a daily vitamin plus minerals for children. Hero Yummi Bears are sugar-free, gluten, casein, and allergen free and made with all-natural fruit flavoris and colors. 

Vitalah Children’s OxylentKids love taking their vitamins when their daily supplement is Children's Oxylent! They love the taste of the natural flavors of Bubbly Berry Punch. It's a fun, tasty, nutritious drink, sweetened with stevia only! 

Natural Vitality Kids Calm Multi combines the beneficial effects of magnesium with a comprehensive premium multi to provide children with key nutrients missing from their diets.

Nordic Naturals Nordic Omega-3 Jellies make it easier than ever to give children the essential omega-3 nutrients they need. Just one serving of these chewable, tutti-frutti flavored treats provides 250 mg of omega 3s to support healthy brain, eye, and immune system function.* Kids love the taste and fun fish shape. 

American Health Chewable Acidophilus and Bifidum helps maintain your daily digestive health and optimal intestinal balance. Acidophilus helps to stimulate the beneficial bacteria in the digestive and intestinal tracts, encourages proper nutrient absorption, and promotes immune health.

How Do the Essentials Awards Work?

For these awards, parents on the Taste for Life staff proudly nominated a great number of their own families' essentials. Then the editors read labels, reviewed the accolades, and selected winners from among the worthy products in each category.
