Making "Super Foods" Part of Our Day with Olly

If you're anything like me, it can be hard to convince your children that veggies are not only tasty, but good for you. I talk a big game about "eating healthy will make you big and strong!" to varying results, usually followed by a quizzical look from the girls and, "another chicken nugget, please" (no, they don't always say please, but it's my story, people!) And don't even get me started on food preferences, which consistently boggle the mind. One day they love avocado, the next day it looks like green slime. Children are confounding little creatures, amIright?

Thankfully, a kids' multi-vitamin tends to relieve my mom guilt if they've built a house with their string beans instead of eaten them. We're big fans of OLLY, which is available online in addition to your local Target.

Their new "Super Foods" kids' vitamin is packed with 10 of the most "heroic" foods on the planet, and delivers the antioxidant equivalent of a whole serving of fruits and veggies. And because it tastes like a gummy, I can even pass it off as dessert. Yippee! I can feel the mom guilt disappearing...

In case you were wondering about those 10 "heroic" ingredients, they are:

Pomegranate: packed with active polyphenols, ellagic acid and tannins
Acai: antioxidant capacity amongst highest ever measured
Watercress: number 1 ranked powerhouse veggie by USDA
Papaya: rich in beta-carotine, lycopene and enzymes
Grape: concentrated polyphenols with 50x antioxidant power of vitamin C
Beet: a unique source of red-colored nutrients called betalains
Elderberry: purple-powered berries packed with anthocyanins
Tamarind: powered by tartaric acid, a phytonutrient with antioxidant activity
Blueberry: contains a wealth of nutrients that promote health
Wheatgrass: nature's finest source of cleansing chlorophyll

OLLY makes products for the whole family and geared towards a whole host of issues, which I love. And here's something fun: get 20% off your first vitamin subscription of OLLY products with code SUPER20 (valid until 3/30/16).

Here's to packing in a healthy punch to your child's day -- without the struggle!
