Fresh from Farm to Powder™, MegaFood is as real as it gets. Since 1973, MegaFood has been committed to making products that use real food from family-owned farms to make a real difference, and has produced some of the most effective and award-winning supplements available today. A pioneer in the natural products industry, MegaFood was one of the first companies to make their FoodState® vitamin and minerals from scratch starting with farm fresh whole foods. MegaFood continues to innovate by manufacturing more than 36 individual FoodState Nutrients™ using their proprietary Slo-Food Process™, all in their own facility in New Hampshire.
I work at a wonderful local farm and have access to some of the best produce I have ever tasted. It is such a fantastic feeling to feed my family the freshest fruits and vegetables around, not to mention how much I love buying local and supporting an actual farm, as opposed to just going to the grocery and getting fruits and veg from who knows where. However, I do realize that even if I could get them to eat broccoli, kale, etc. several times per day, they still need additional supplements to get the maximum nutrition they need. So when I was recently given the opportunity to review the MegaFood Kids Nutrient Booster Powders™, I decided it would be a good opportunity to see if they would be a fit for us.
If your little one cannot swallow pills or you can't find a chewable that is really healthy, these powders are the perfect solution! They are easy to mix into a smoothie or glass of juice. I have plans to stir them into soups, stews and curries this autumn and winter, as well.
This is what came in my sample box:
Kids Daily Multi, Kids Daily Immune, Kids Daily B-Centered, recipe cards and a reusable Mega Food bag.
I was especially excited about the Kids' Daily Multi containing turmeric, as I have read over and over how beneficial it is! In case you haven't heard about it, click here or here.
We decided to use one of the recipe cards that was included in our sample box and make the no bake Peanut Power Bites. My 11 and 9 year old girls made them with no help at all from me. Super easy and healthy! The other thing I love about these powders is that they contain no artificial sweeteners. I'm always surprised (and appalled) when so-called health products contain those poisons. These do not (see below for additional health info)!

If it's a challenge for you to get your children to eat healthy foods on a regular basis, first, I would encourage you to find a local farm and join their CSA program. It is so beneficial to connect with local farmers and have our children see where food comes from! Second, if you're like many American families and not getting enough nutrition from your food, especially if you have children who are picky eaters, MegaFood supplements would be a great solution for bringing more health into your daily life.
