Written by guest blogger: Jill Anenberg Lawrence www.jillanenberg.comThere’s an unfamiliar silence in the house that hasn’t been felt for months. Oh my gosh, you haven’t yelled, “Clean up your stuff!” in the last 20 minutes. Right as you’re about to lose your mind, the kids are sent back to school to expand their minds. Let’s keep our freedom and ensure they avoid the school nurse and remain healthy so the rug rats won’t be returning home for sick days and interrupt Mom’s blog reading time. Yep, no pulling at your sleeves for snacks, or forcing you to threaten a time out. The only time out is a peaceful 5 minutes for Mama to kick up her heels and enjoy this back-to-school update. All right, so what’s on the list for back-to-school essentials? A kick-butt multivitamin to protect them from you-know-who's filthy boys. With the top grade in its class Kinder Love Children’s Multivitamin (US/CA) is our go-to formula. With a delicious flavor containing vitamins A, B, C, D, and E plus minerals and calcium, the kids will think they’re getting Halloween candy early. Think of this multi as extra credit filling their bodies with nutrients and digestive herbs. Flora’s Salus products never contain any GMOs, alcohol, dairy, preservatives, chemicals, artificial sweeteners, colorings, or flavorings. So again, nothing that will create illness in their bodies requiring an early pick up disturbing your favorite yoga class. Bacteria is fun in science class but not when it’s an overgrowth in our gut from poor food choices and antibiotics. Elected for class president…Udo's Choice Children’s Probiotic (US/CA)! Flora knows our kid’s stomach acids play as hard as they do. The strains in Udo’s blends are able to survive the stomach acids to reach the intestinal tract at full potency. One last suggestion to really lock in their health as well as your “child-free” time is Sambu Guard for Kids (US/CA). A spoonful of this bad boy will be your kids’ best invisible friend...and yours too! Elderberry and echinacea might sound like words on a vocab test, but combined with vitamin C, will be giving a big fat ‘F’ to germs this fall season. After-school activities strengthen their muscles, Sambu will strengthen their immune systems. Enjoy the quiet and their health!
