With three small children sickness tends to hang around for quite some time, normally they are not that good at sharing but of course they don’t mind passing on the germs. Of course I want them to get better as soon as possible and I know vitamines play an important part in that process so how do you make sure their intake is up to scratch when they are refusing to eat anything that looks healthy?

When I attended the Bloggers Brunch back in July I was lucky enough to meet a very helpful Blackmores employee who told me her kids happily helped themselves to the Blackmores Kids Multi and Kids Fruity Fishies jars every morning. At the time I had my serious doubts, because from all I know tablets and capsules are everything but pleasant to swallow and as a child I couldn’t run away fast enough at the sight of them. Now two months later I have to agree with her statement, my kids have taken to their daily dose of vitamins with ease and actually ask for it themselves.

Their top pick is the Blackmores Kids Fruity Fishies ($16.45 per 30), a chewable fish oil capsule that supports healthy brain development and helps maintain normal eye function and learning in children. I alternate two Blackmores products for kids but they always try their luck and ask for the ‘orange fishies’ first, it is obvious they really like the natural raspberry-orange flavour. The sweet smell did make me run to check the packaging for added sugar but no artificial sweeteners have been added.

On the other days they get the Blackmores Kids Multi ($14.95 per 60) containing 18 essential nutrients to support healthy growth and development. The Kids Multi tablets are developed to supplement the gaps in important vitamins and minerals that may result from fussy eating, something many parents worry about especially if children are/have been unwell. The yummy strawberry vanilla flavour appeals to even the fussiest eater!

With the twins starting school next year the Kids Mineral Minds ($16.45 per 60) could be very helpful. This mineral formula supports healthy brain development, learning and concentration in children, if these tablets make my children concentrate on listening to me a bit better I will start them on the Kids Mineral Minds tablets today! Some of the contents are iodine which is necessary for IQ development and several minerals necessary for school performance.

Especially for one lucky Hip little one reader the Blackmores team has put together a fantastic kids prize pack valued at $83.85, which consists of the Blackmores Kids Fruity Fishies, Kids Mineral Minds and Kids Multi as well as the Feeding Fussy Kids book by Antonia Kidman & Julie Maree Wood. The book is filled with recipes, ideas, tips, tricks and strategies to boost the nutrition of your fussy child as well as help them overcome their pickiness.

To find out more about Blackmores and the Blackmores range for kids go to or visit a Blackmores retailer near you.

  72. I want to try Calcium to see how they taste because the current brand we use tastes absolutely disgusting, making us all retch when we try to swallow them down….and they’re meant to be chewable too!!! Like to try fish oil, heard lots of good things, but yet to pull ur fingers out and buy the product.

  73. Would like to try ‘every day stress formula’ because I’m a born worrier, worrying about everything and if there’s nothing to worry about I create things! Have tried ‘cold and flu day night’ and I can say they did not do a thing.

  97. I have been using the Blackmores Pregnancy and breastfeeding gold tablets since early last year and continue to have it now while I breastfeed. My doctor recommended it as it is the only pregnancy supplement that also includes assistance with thyroid problems. Because I stayed on it while breastfeeding, I didn’t need to give my reflux son, a supplementary feed with formula.
    The other Blackmores product that I would like to try is the Weightless tablets. I have gained so much weight this last pregnancy and I don’t know how I can loose that much without help. So lad this competition came along, I didn’t know about the Weightless tablets. Thanks.
