We’ve hit the ground running in 2020 and getting my family’s health into tip-top shape is at the top of my goals for this new year, new decade. I do my best to make healthy, well-balanced meals for my husband and three kids but honestly, it’s not always a success (and my middle child could really survive solely on white bread, ramen and cereal if he had the choice). The after-school hours are busy and sometimes I have to resort to quick meals or pizza (without a vegetable in sight).

For some reason, the habit of taking a daily vitamin isn’t something I’ve been able to incorporate into my family’s routine in the past. I’d go a few weeks with my kids taking a morning vitamin on a semi-regular basis and somehow that would peter out and the vitamin bottle would end up collecting dust in the back of our cabinet. That was until I introduced my kids to MyBite Vitamins. Found at Target (and other large retailers), these seemed like a great idea because they had all the vitamins I was looking for in one chocolatey bite.

To be honest, I tricked my kids the first time I gave them a MyBite Kidz vitamin. I wanted them to try it without any “this is healthy for me” bias so I gave them one after school and didn’t mention the vitamin part, just asked them what they thought. My middle child was dubious, as it wasn’t normal for me to offer them chocolate after school, but they were game to try.

My youngest son, Joe, immediately asked if he could have another and claimed that it tasted like a “fancy candy bar.” When I asked my 12-year-old daughter, Nora, if she’d be interested in having one of these every day, she said, “I’m definitely interested in chocolate whenever you want to give it to me.” Even Mr. Picky Eater Middle Child had no complaints, even when I came clean and told them that what I’d just given them was a MyBite Kidz vitamin.

As a mom, I like that my kids remind me to give them their MyBite Vitamins in the morning instead of it being another thing I have to remember. It has been super easy to incorporate the MyBite Kidz into our daily routine and I feel good knowing that even if our dinners are hectic and not always perfect, they are getting a good multivitamin with vitamin A, vitamin B12 and other nutrients they need as growing kids. And with MyBite Immune they get Zinc along with 100% daily value of vitamins D and C that they need to fight all those kid germs at school.

I’ve added the MyBite Hers into my regimen so that I can keep myself strong and healthy. It makes me feel good knowing that in spite of their great taste, MyBite Vitamins have limited sugar and calories and don’t contain any artificial colors, flavors or added preservatives. It’s one more step in the right direction for my family’s health in 2020.
