Review: USANA Usanimals vitamins

As I've mentioned before here on the blog, my son, Ethan, stopped eating when he was two years old. He's had a feeding tube for a little over a year now, but we're always still concerned about making sure he's getting all the nutrients and vitamins that he needs to grow and develop.  One of the ways we do that is with a daily multivitamin supplement. Recently we received a new one to try out- Usanimals from USANA. Here's a bit about these vitamins:
  • Two out of three kids prefer the great new natural wild berry flavor of Usanimals
  • Provides excellent nutritional support for growing children*
  • Supports healthy immune function with vitamins A, C, E, and zinc*
  • Includes vitamins B6, B12, folate, and choline for healthy brain function*
  • Includes calcium, magnesium, and vitamin D for strong bones and teeth*
  • Includes iron, thiamin, and B12 for energy*
  • Easy-to-eat chewables stamped with fun animal shapes

Ethan has been liking these vitamins. He likes the animal shapes on them and thinks they taste yummy too! In fact, before I wrote this post I double checked with him to make sure he likes these vitamins and he immediately asked if he could have one right now. That's a good sign! I like that they are free of artificial flavors and sweeteners and that they're easy for Ethan to chew. So these are a win for both of us!

Disclosure: I received these vitamins to review with my family.  I was not compensated in any way and all opinions posted here are mine and mine alone.
