SOLGAR® U-CUBES™ childrens multi-vitamin & mineral gummies giveaway

In a world of children’s nutrition, health messages can be confusing. From 5-a-day, to sugar taxes and even vitamin deficiencies, it can be hard to ensure children are receiving all the key nutrients they need, and none of the artificial additives that they don’t need.

Confusion is clear across the country; recent research of 10,000 UK adults from the Health Food Manufacturers’ Association found that 59% are not giving vitamin supplements to their children, with 64% believing their children get enough nutrients from their normal diet alone.

In contrast, England’s chief medical officer, Prof Dame Sally Davies, claims that all babies and young children should be given free vitamins on the NHS to combat rising cases of bone disease. In her annual report last year, Davies said that up to 25% of children in the UK are vitamin D deficient, leading to a rise in rickets cases.

Vitamin D, nicknamed the sunshine vitamin, is obtained mostly from sunlight on the skin, so can be difficult to access in the darker months. There are also very few food sources of the micronutrient, so whilst oily fish and eggs can help towards a daily dose, it might be slightly harder to persuade fussy eaters into stocking up on these nutrient rich foods.  Both vitamins A and B are also tricky to obtain from foods, with an average cup of whole milk only containing 5% of vitamin A, and an average serving of cereal only 15%.

To help combat confusion, and provide parents with daily peace of mind on their children’s nutrient levels, Solgar® has created U-Cubes™ Children’s Multi-Vitamin & Mineral Gummies.

U-Cubes™ provide:

  • 100 IU (5 μg) of Vitamin D3 needed for growth and bone development
  • Vitamin A for eye health
  • B Vitamins to support energy boosting metabolism
  • Vitamin C for immune function
  • Folic Acid for new cell growth
  • Plus, other essential nutrientsE52550_U-Cubes_Gummies_60 2

Coming in natural grape, cherry and orange flavours, U-Cubes™ give parents a great tasting way to ensure their children’s daily vitamin needs are boosted, without artificial colours, sweeteners or flavourings. The tasty fun gums are suitable from ages 3+, to ensure even the youngest bodies are getting all the important levels of vitamins and minerals, in safe levels designed by Solgar’s scientific experts.

My girls have been enjoying them all week they think they’re sweets and have never been so excited to take their vitamins – I think the fun packaging really helps as well, makes it interesting to look at. They only tricky part is telling them they can only have 1 per day. I also impressed at the size they come in each tub content 120 gummies so will last on average 4 months per child they RRP at £21.95 so it works out at a great price.

Solgar® has very kindly given me 3 tubs of U-Cubes  to give away to my readers so you can try them for yourself all you need to do is enter the rafflecopter giveaway below to be in with the chance.

UK ONLY, Competition will end midnight on the 10th July 2015 3 winners will then be selected at random and contacted via email.
