alternaVites Kids Multivitamin Review!

As a kid, I hated taking my vitamins.  They didn't taste very good and were usually chalky.  Recently I was sent a box of alteraVites Kids Quick-Melting Multivitamin and Mineral Crystals for review, and if I would have had these as a kid, I wouldn't have had a problem taking my vitamins.

alteraVites Kids:
  • Melts in your mouth
  • Strawberry Bubble Gum and Raspberry Cotton Candy Flavors
  • Just one packet per day
  • 0 grams of sugar
  • Free of aspartame and high fructose corn syrup
  • No animal products or by-products
  • No artificial sweeteners, colors, flavors, or preservatives
My kids and I tried the alternaVites Kids multivitamin together.  They reminded me of the pixie stick sugar candies (which I love!) except of course without the sweet sugary taste.  They had a subtle flavor, and I thought they tasted pretty good.  My oldest son wasn't really thrilled by the Raspberry Cotton Candy flavor alternaVites, but I wasn't too surprised.  He's incredibly picky.  I think he would have preferred the Strawberry Bubble Gum flavor.  My younger son liked the  Raspberry flavor.
The great thing about alteraVites is that they can be sprinkled into yogurts and puddings which my older son loves.  They can even be sprinkled on fruit! 

alteraVites Kids are a unique multivitamin, that I think most kids will enjoy.  We have a special coupon for you, so you can try them out.  Visit and received 20% off your order when you use the discount code moms20.

Staying Fit in Today's World

In today's world, it is becoming increasingly important to stay trim. The media bombards us with images and messages about what to eat, what not to eat and what to do to stay healthy. But the true 'secret' to living well? Eating healthily and doing exercise to get the weight off, and to keep it off.

Unfortunately, for a lot of us, it is never quite that easy. A weight loss program and support network, like Weight Watchers can help . They provide meal plans, calorie counts and information about the best way to go about living healthily. They can provide weekly weight updates and progress measurements that can help you to achieve your health goals, whatever they may be.

Another positive to groups such as this is the support they provide in helping you progress. Trained professionals are practiced in helping people lose weight and get healthy, and have a wide knowledge of weight loss tips and techniques. Similarly, to be in a network of other people with similar goals can both boost morale, self-esteem AND add a bit of competition to your weight loss program which could always give you greater motivation.

Exercise is important not just in losing weight but also in keeping weight down. Combined with a balanced diet and healthy lifestyle, the pounds will be off in no time. Whilst starting an exercise program can be a daunting undertaking, especially if you are not a seasoned gym-user, but do not fear - there are usually plenty of professionals around to help you, or you could book a session with a Personal Trainer.

Whilst the gym, particularly alone, requires a certain amount of motivation and effort, another way to get active is to join a sports club or team. All sorts of clubs exist - triathlons, swimming, running, soccer ( some great soccer coupons here ), athletics - and it is a matter of choosing the one that you like best. You could even go along with a friend. If you're having fun and getting fit, you probably won't even realize you're losing weight, but it's a great way to enjoy activity in a way you may not have before - and you might even make some friends!

So what does healthy eating actually entail? The main thing is to eat three square meals, and to try not to snack on unhealthy foods. Set meals and snacks at times that suit your day, and stick to a plan. Make sure that each meal contains protein, carbohydrates and vegetables, and that you choose low-fat and healthy-fat meals. For snacks, try fruit, nuts or yoghurt and try to drink as much water as you can throughout the day to stay hydrated. And what should you stay away from? A healthy lifestyle can include a bit of everything in moderation, but try to consume less coffee, regardless of how tempting the current tassimo discount codes are, fewer dairy products and less salty or fatty food. And it might seem obvious, but fast food is definitely off the menu.

So enjoy yourself, look after yourself and most importantly - stay calm. Everyone progresses at their own pace, and it is a matter of finding the activity, food and lifestyle that suits you. But with a wealth of sport and exercise available, plenty of guidance on food and dieting around, the weight should drop off easily and stay off. Before you know it and with the right balance, you'll be the weight you want and feel fantastic.

Zipadee-Zip Review and Giveaway

A few months ago, Caroline started rolling over while she slept. The problem was, she was still swaddled at night, so she would get trapped on her belly, and that scared the daylights out of me! But I couldn't put her to bed without being swaddled, because she would wake herself up. So my problem was coming up with something that would help her sleep, but still be safe for my princess.

After a little online research, I kept finding links to Zipadee-Zip - a one-piece, star-shaped sleeping bag that offers the cozy, snugness of a swaddle, but gives baby freedom to move. It promises an easy transition from swaddling, which is exactly what I was looking for. Zipadee-Zip was kind enough to send Caroline a Zipadee-Zip to try out. I was a little skeptical at first - could this really work? Caroline was used to a very tight, arms-at-her-side swaddle. I tried it out at naptime first and was actually shocked to discover that she actually slept soundly!

To this day (3ish months later) Caroline still sleeps in her Zipadee-Zip every single night. She is free to roll around, and actually sleeps on her belly most nights, and can crawl and even pull herself up when she wakes up in the morning. I guess our next battle is taking away the Zipadee-Zip, but I'm not too worried about that. I love the fun prints. The hands are a little more "worn" because Caroline constantly has them in her mouth. The zipper does bunch a little bit in one spot, and we have to kind of push that part down so it doesn't stick out in her face, but she could care less. I'm super satisfied with the results!

Zipadee-Zip has been awesome enough to offer one MLG reader their very own Zipadee-Zip! To be entered, just visit the website and tell me your favorite print!

Giveaway ends May 12 @ midnight. Giveaway is limited to US residents, 18+. I was not paid for this post. I was given product in exchange for my post, but all opinions are my own.
