Most of us have probably heard of Emergen-C, the vitamin drink mix. I have friends who swear by it winter year to help boost their immune system. Now, there is a version specifically for kids called Emergen-C Kidz.
It is recommended for children 4 – 13 twice daily. All you do is mix a packet in 4 – 6 ounces of water and drink it up!
We were able to try the three kids flavors of grape, orange and fruit punch. I honestly didn’t think my kids would like it. They are uber picky. I mean, seriously. Super duper picky about just about everything. So, I let them choose the flavor they wanted to try, mixed them all up and then we did our taste test at the same time. They LOVED it! True story!
Because Emergen-C Kidz is for ages 4 – 13, only my 3 older children tried it. Two of them tried the Fruit Punch flavor, one tried the Grape and I tried the orange along with them. That orange flavor is SOUR! It certainly made me pucker so I suggest adding a little extra water if you like a milder flavor. The kids really like the flavors. And that makes me happy because the girls have started a phase where they won’t eat anything I fix. They are SO picky right now. I hope they grow out of that phase like my son did but until they do, I’m happy to know there is a product they like, that is good for them, that I can give them up to twice daily to help keep them healthy. I will definitely continue to purchase Emergen-C Kids for them and regular Emergen-C for the grown-ups. (Hubby and myself)
