Smartypants Gummy Vitamins Review and $15 EcoMom Gift Certificate Giveaway


When it comes to food, I have a very picky little girl in my house. I find myself celebrating when she actually wants something healthy, as opposed to the junk I find myself letting her have just so she will eat something. As you can imagine, I spend a lot of time worrying about her health and that she is getting all of the vitamins she needs. Just in time, a leader in eco-friendly baby products - EcoMom - offered to let us try out Smartypants Gummy Vitamins.

I have to admit, I was a little unsure about trying these as my picky eater does not even like fruit snacks, so the appeal of a gummy isn't really there. These were going to need more than being "candy" to get this little one to take them. Luckily, she was intrigued as soon as she saw the bottle, it is pretty cute. She gladly ate one and then another. I couldn't believe it. We rarely get to the recommended four vitamins daily and she will only take the orange ones (for no reason at all), but two orange ones a day is a good start. It just means I'll have to buy a new bottle a little sooner!

Smartypants are an all in one vitamin. They are a daily multi-vitamin but they also include Omega 3's and Choline. It can be really difficult to find Omega 3's that kids will take but these don't have a fishy taste at all, I tried them myself! Their Omega 3 DHA & EPA fish oil comes from eco-friendly sustainable small fish sources. No unsustainable tuna or contaminated fish is used. Now, that she is taking these, I feel a little less guilty about the fact that I don't cook fish.

Here is what I like about them: SmartyPants are made with only natural colors & flavors and no High Fructose Corn Syrup. They are also gluten- and casein-free. They never use any fake or artificial flavors, sweeteners, or dyes that are bad for your kids! When you read the ingredient label you will find words you are actually familiar with. They are made in California and purity tested. Plus, they are GMP certified. This means that you are receiving the purest ingredients in proper concentrations.

Lastly, every time you buy a bottle of SmartyPants, they make a 1-to-1 matching nutrient grant to a child most in need through their partnership with Vitamin Angels.

If you'd like to try Smartypants Gummy Vitamins, you can enter to win a $15 EcoMom gift certificate below. You can also order them at EcoMom using the 15% discount code, SBBL592, for Deal Friends readers. This code is good on your entire purchase of eco-friendly products, not just the vitamins.
