Go Back to School with Nordic Naturals®

Posted: 09 Aug 2012 01:16 PM PDT

School starts up in about 9 days and it's time to think about getting your kids back on a schedule:

1) Bedtime @ 9 pm - make sure your kids are getting a minimum of 8 hours - 10 if possible!
2) Bath every night.
3) Lay out clothes, homework, shoes so it's ready in the morning.
4) Have kids take their daily vitamin.

Do you tend to forget to have your kid's take their vitamin in the morning? I'm terrible. I've gotten so I take all my medications, line the kids that I'm watching up for their vitamin all at the same time - that including me. Make sure everyone is ready to go, faces washed, hair brushed, homework....

Nordic Naturals has a GREAT line of Children's supplements - They are sweet tasting, don't have any artificial flavoring, colors or preservatives and kid's LOVE 'em!

I've been really impressed with Nordic Berries™ by Nordic Naturals - they're chewy, sweet-and-sour multivitamins provide 100% of the daily value of the most essential nutrients. I tried a couple of them not to long ago in a sampling and I was really surprised how good they taste. I didn't think they tasted sour at all - more sweet, definitely chewy like a gummy would and the kid's love them! 

For Baby: I never thought to give baby a Baby DHA supplement but according to research it's important for the proper development of the brain, eyes, and nervous & immune systems in babies 5-35 lbs. Supports learning and language abilities. The Baby DHA has an added natural vitamin D3 for further support of healthy development and includes a measured dropper to make it easy to add to formula or food.

For kids 2+: The Omega-3 Jellies are tutti fruity flavored and provide 250 mg of Omega 3's to help boost your kid's brain power, eye and immune system (no more sick days for my kids!). Best of all there are no artificial flavoring, colors or preservatives.

For kids 3+: Children's DHA™ – chewable, strawberry-flavored omega-3s support brain and visual function. Contains healthy levels of 100% natural vitamins A & D.

This post brought to you by Famous Footwear. All opinions are 100% mine.

I was recently in Famous Footwear looking for a pair of sandals to wear and I was pleasantly surprised at the set up and the high quality shoes I had to choose from. I have plantar fascitis and a high arch so finding a comfortable pair of shoes has always been difficult. Imagine my surprise when I found a great pair of casual sandals and a great pair of tennis shoes!

Famous Footwear has hundreds of brand name shoes and thousands of styles - every member of your family will be able to find NEW shoes to choose from! If the shoe you want isn't in your store you can get it through home delivery or at & you can also order them online and have them delivered to the store at no extra charge.


It's time to do your annual Back to School Shopping and as always kids need NEW shoes - dress, gym and everyday!

Famous Footwear has a couple of GREAT offers to help you SAVE $: 

1) Buy One Get One HALF OFF! - This is ALWAYS a Great Deal
