***We were given the opportunity to try out 3 different MegaFood Booster powders for free from Momsmeet (momsmeet.com) May Media Group LLC, who received them directly from the manufacturer. All opinions are 100% ours. ***
I know that there are a lot of kids besides mine that have a hard time swallowing pills or chewing up vitamins, so these Nutrient Booster Powders from MegaFood might be a good fit. You can be sneaky with them!
I've used MegaFood vitamins for myself before.
I love their "Fresh from Farm to Tablet" philosophy. I love that they are made from whole foods. MegaFood kids Nutrient Booster Powders are made from whole foods as well, with a one of a kind Slo-Foods(TM) process. Plus, the powders have NO added sugar, sweeteners, preservatives, flavorings or colors.

The booster powders can be snuck into different foods; think yogurt, apple sauce, smoothies, energy bites. We even snuck it into salsa. The powders are easy to digest and don't cause stomach upset.
There are 3 varieties that we were able to try:
- Kids Daily Multi -- which contains turmeric, carrots, fresh fruits, and 23 essential vitamins and minerals per serving.
- Kids Daily Immune powder -- which contains oranges from Uncle Matt's Organic, and elderberry and echinacea.
- Kids Daily B-Centered -- The B-Centered features Lundberg Family Farms organic brown rice and is formulated with a full spectrum of Food-State B Vitamins. The B Vitamin blend could possibly provide daily support for mental focus, cognitive function and a sense of calmness. **This statement has not been evaluated by the Food & Drug Administration.

Each jar of booster powder has it's own scoop so that you know exactly how much to use.
I love that they tell you about the farms that they use right on the label.
I actually had a hard time "hiding" the powders from my kids in drinks and food. We tried it in apple cider first by stirring it in with a spoon. It didn't mix in all the way and we were left with a little residue in the bottom of the glass.
Then, we tried to whisk it in with a power whisk to see if it dissolved a little better. There was definitely less residue that way.
My son finished all of his, but my daughter didn't end up finishing hers because she didn't like the taste. The vitamin powder still has a strong vitamin taste and smell so sometimes you can still smell it and taste it in the things that you mix it into. We tried it in cinnamon flavored apple sauce next. My daughter finished it that time, but she still didn't like it and wouldn't be likely to eat it that way again. We tried to make the smoothie recipe that was suggested, but that didn't go over very well. Nobody liked the taste of that.
We then made a smoothie with pineapple, orange and banana and that was one of the best ways she liked it. I believe she finished the smoothie, but still probably wasn't getting a full serving of the vitamins. At least she's probably getting more vitamins than she normally would.
We even tried it with chips and salsa. I thought maybe if we tried to "hide" it in something salty or savory, it might hide the taste better.
She said chips and salsa was the best way, UNTIL. . . . . . .
Finally, I tried to make the Peanut Power Bites recipe that was included in our kit.
We made those with the Kids Daily B-Centered and she loved those.
WE HAD A WINNER!!
The recipe makes 4 servings, so she would probably eat close to 1 serving on any given day. I need to try it with the Multi Vitamin powder instead of the Daily B-Centered to see if it would actually work for that powder as well. When we finally find something that works, we need to go with it!
Powering up for the final game of the Soccer Tournament!
My daughter likes dried cranberries, so I might actually try this recipe next!

I'm going to keep trying different foods to see which ones work the best.
Check out Reviews.com's post "The Best Multivitamin: Everything You Need, Nothing You Don't" to see which vitamins they picked as the best multivitamins. The team from reviews.com spent six weeks on a quest to find the most effective and balanced multivitamin to work with your body. They consulted physicians, dietitians, and an investigative journalist before testing over 300 varieties to determine which contained all the essential vitamins and minerals you need (and none of the ones you don’t).
How do you make sure your kids get their vitamins?
