The summer is now a dim and distant memory. The darker days are drawing in and it’s definitely feeling chillier. The heating is on and it’s so tempting to just stay in and hibernate until the spring! I have always preferred summertime and the warmer months, and there’s no doubt that they are better for us as they get us out and about.
With autumn here and winter drawing in, we do find ourselves indoors that little bit more. We do try to get out at the weekends as it’s important to get as much daylight and exercise as we can, but after school we tend to be inside now rather than in the garden or at the park. This can cause a few health issues, but fortunately there’s an easy remedy.
With the shorter days, less daylight, and people like me wanting to stay inside, Department of Health experts are recommending that during autumn and winter everyone should consider taking a daily supplement containing 10 micrograms of Vitamin D to protect bone and muscle health. To help parents ensure their children meet this level, Bassetts Vitamins have launched their Bassetts Vitamins 3-6 Multivitamins + Vitamin D & Calcium; soft and chewy pastilles to help ensure that little ones are getting their all-important daily Vitamin D during the autumn and winter months. Vitamin D and Calcium are important for children’s development. They each help to support healthy muscle function, healthy teeth and healthy bones – in fact, Vitamin D and Calcium are both necessary for normal bone growth and development in children.
My kids have long been used to taking vitamins each day, and it tends to be Bassetts that I buy. These new ones are proving to be just as popular as Little Man tells me that they taste delicious! They are a unique offering with all the benefits of a standard multivitamin, but with added Vitamin D and Calcium in a Peach and Apricot flavour. They are made with natural flavours and colours, and no added sugar with an RRP of £5.50 for a pack of 30 pastilles. My son is now requesting vitamins several times a day as he loves the flavour! It is just a one a day pastille, don’t worry, I don’t give him more!
As he loves the taste of these so much, they’ll be the ones I buy from now on, and with those added health benefits, it is an easy choice. It’s helpful to have Bassetts Vitamins supporting those fun family moments in this way with their #nodulldays campaign, we can just ensure we keep them busy, active and happy. I don’t need to worry about his health so I can focus on filling the winter days with fun instead!
