Disclosure: SmartyPants Vitamins generously sent me vitamins for my son to use and for me to review. All opinions are my own. Keep reading for a giveaway!

It’s that time of year again. When all the parents both do a jig of joy while simultaneously dropping tears into their morning coffee.


There are so many unknowns with Back to School:

Will we like the teacher?
Will the teacher like us?
Will we deal with bullying?
Will my kid be the bully?
The list goes on.

The one thing completely *known* to all of us parents who have been around the block a grade or two: here come the germs. And not just in cute little sniffles. We’re talking onslaughts of the worst stuff you could imagine. How great it is when they bring illness home to linger for what seems like forever.

Set aside the fact that respiratory viruses are really good at hanging on in an asthmatic’s lungs.

Set aside the fact that I felt more nausea in my pregnancy than any one person should feel in a lifetime.

Set aside the fact that I. Cannot. Stomach. Goopy. Noses. Literally.

Yes, all of that aside. I really, really want Zachary to be healthy and whole so that he can squeeze the most out of each day at school. As he goes into fourth grade we know the studies are important, yes. But so are the “other” experiences like it being his first year of being the big kid in Reading Buddies, or playing tag on the field at recess, or learning how to do a hands-free front flip at tumbling class. Those are the things he will remember.

I want to support his growth by allowing him to always have the opportunity to make memories. He can’t make memories when he’s sick, so we have for years regularly given him a daily vitamin to support his immune system.

This spring I learned about SmartyPants Vitamins and we both fell in love. He with the gummy, sweet taste of the vitamins. Me with the promise of no gmo’s, no artificial colors, and – best of all – a certified allergen-free facility. From the SmartyPants FAQ:

SmartyPants is free of yeast, wheat, milk, eggs, gluten, salt, peanuts, tree nuts, shellfish, artificial colors, artificial flavors, and salicylates and are produced in a certified allergen-free facility.

SmartyPants will be our go-to from here on out. Finding vitamins made in allergy-safe facilities is one thing, but add to it all of the other things their vitamins are free-from. Well, for our family, it makes it a no-brainer.
