Vitamins for me and my kids

Health, Lifestyle, Mummy life

I was never really one to take vitamins. I remember taking folic acid during both of my pregnancies but that is it really. Recently I decided that it was time for me and my children to take some.

Whilst on a shopping trip in Bromley a few months ago, I popped into Holland & Barrett and bought some Biotin for myself and some Healthy Kids Multi Vitamins for Leshay (age 9) and Jaray (age 7).


What is it for?

Supports the maintenance for normal skin, hair and mucous membranes.

Directions of use

I usually take 3 a day, you are allowed to take 1-4 a day, preferably with a meal.


I have been taking these for 3 months now and haven’t seen that much change in my hair or skin however my nails are now really long and super strong so I am really pleased with the result. I did pop back to get some more however the sales assistant recommended a slightly different vitamin because I told him that I am trying to grow my hair longer and he recommended these that I will try next:

Vitamins for the hair

What is it for?

For maintenance of normal hair and hair colour

Directions of use

It says to take 3 a day, preferably with a meal.


I haven’t started to take these yet as still I have 1 tub of Biotin left but once I have taken these for a few months I will report back to you and let you know how I get on!

Healthy kids Multi vitamins

What is it for?

Provides support to growing kids health and bones. Contains vitamin A, B, C, D and E

Directions of use

They are for children age 3 years and over, they can have only one gummy per day. My children normally take theirs every morning after their breakfast.


They have been taking these for 3 months now and if I’m honest I haven’t seen that much change however as they are growing kids, I feel happy that they enjoy taking these and are gaining all of the extra benefits that these vitamins provide! They are little bear shaped gummy ‘sweets’ and my children love them, they also had some in orange flavour with added Omega 3 but I stayed with the multi vitamin ones simply because they were on offer ☺️ but I will go back and get some of them next time!

Do you take vitamins? What do you take and what do you recommend? I’d love to hear your suggestions!

Thanks for reading,

Layonie xx
