Thats cool - no its a cold and it won't go!

Eeeeurrrgggghhhhh its October - its chilly one day warm the next, the heating is on and then off etc... and the whole Tsamplakos clan have got colds!!!

Honey has had this horrible cold for a few weeks now and it just won't shift!!!

So i've decided we all need to be taking vitamins in this house (Nick included) I just can't deal with all the snot, calpol, thermometers, worrying!

So i've been doing a bit of research on the best vitamins for us as individuals!

For Honey (age 4) I am going to order

Floradix Kindervital from £9.05 for 250ml

Floradix Kindervital fruity is a delicious food supplement for children providing vital calcium and vitamin D which are needed for normal growth and bone development as well as the maintenance of normal teeth. Furthermore, the essential vitamins contained help with many important functions in the body, including the role of vitamins C, B6 and B12 in contributing to normal immune system.
As these nutrients are already dissolved, they are absorbed more quickly by the digestive system compared to tablets.
Floradix Kindervital fruity contains no alcohol, preservatives, colourings, artificial flavourings and is lactose free, gluten free and suitable for vegetarians.

The reviews look good - i didn't want to go down the chewy vitamin route i wanted something that was quickly absorbed!

For Rocco (age 2) I am going to order

Abidec Multivitamin Drops from £3.89

Abidec Multiviamin Drops have been specially formulated to help meet the nutritional requirements of your children. It is particularly beneficial in the prevention of vitamin deficiencies. Given daily with the easy to use syringe, Abidec Multivitamin Drops provide the correct balance of vitamins to help maintain your child’s healthy growth and help prevent vitamin deficiencies. Given daily, Abidec provides the correct balance of vitamins to maintain your child's healthy growth.

I bought these for Honey when she was small but I didn't give them to her as i was hell bent on getting her all the vitamins in her food.  She didn't go to nursery and we were quite lucky really! However now Rocco and Honey are at Nursery i need to get some extra vitamins double quick! 

For Nick (age 34) I am going to order 

Wellman Original from £8.55

Wellman® Original contains a comprehensive formulation of over 29 essential bio-elements. Wellman® has been specially developed for men who want to maintain optimum nutrition levels while training, who want to help support reproductive health, or help maintain general health and vitality in an otherwise hectic lifestyle. Wellman® represents a simple solution as the advanced one-a-day tablets, unlike general multivitamins have safe and effective nutrient levels formulated especially for men.

I've heard lots of good things about Wellman - so i think we will try these first and see if Nick starts to get more energy!

And for Me i'm going for this

Floradix Floravital from £16.09 500ml

Floravital contains iron (in the form of iron gluconate), vitamins B2, B6, B12 and C which contribute to the reduction of tiredness and to normal energy yielding metabolism. Iron also contributes to normal red blood cell and haemoglobin formation which is supported by vitamins B6 and B12. Furthermore, vitamin C increases iron absorption.

As these nutrients are already dissolved, they are absorbed more quickly by the digestive system compared to tablets. Extracts from selected herbs and several fruit juices give Floravital a pleasant taste.
Floravital contains no alcohol, preservatives, colourings or artificial flavourings and is free from lactose, gluten and yeast.
Floradix is particularly beneficial for expectant and lactating mothers      and people with an active lifestyle.

To be fair after researching i think i will put Nick on Floradix liquid iron too! I think i prefer it and i like the fact that its a liquid! 

So my top choices for the whole family are Floradix and Abidec (until Rocco is 3) then it will be Floradix all the way! 

I will do a monthly update from when these arrive and let you know how we are all feeling! 

If any of you have any favourites or think theres something better out there id love to know! 

Love J
