Mini Blackberry Waffles with Toasted Marshmallows

As a kid I was always told breakfast is the most important meal of the day. However, as I transitioned into my teen years, I stopped eating breakfast. Then came the young adult years, and I continued down my path of eating breakfast, or brunch around noon (usually when I woke up, ha!). 

Now as a Mom of three growing boys, a tween, and two teens, I stress the importance of eating breakfast. I’m trying to teach the boys not to go down my path of skipping out on breakfast, staying active, and being the healthiest person possible.  There are many mornings when one of the twins will come downstairs, grab a banana and that’s it. I try to push the, “you need to have a good start to your day” message, but he states “I’m not hungry!”

Many times I get the “mom guilt” of not preparing a hot breakfast for the boys or making them eat a hearty breakfast before rushing out the door to school. However, one thing I do not let them skip out on is taking their vitamins. 

Taking a vitamin each morning is a must for every single family member. The boys may eat a piece of fruit or cold cereal for breakfast, but I’ve learned to let go of that “guilt” because I know they are getting their vitamins. When the boys were little, I would just pick up any vitamin on sale at the grocery store. However, as I grow to be older and wiser (ha!), I am learning to read labels and find out more about what we’re putting into our bodies. Lately, we’ve been giving the boys SmartyPants Kids Probiotic Complete

As the boys get older, they need more than just a simple daily vitamin. They are into sports, they are growing into men. Yes, MEN! And I want only the best for my young, fearless leaders. 

Smarty Pants Vitamins

That is where the SmartyPants Kids Probiotic Complete brand comes into play. With the twins being sensitive to certain products, along with staying away from artificial flavors and sweeteners (this doesn’t play well with kids with Autism), I’m finding out that this particular brand is exactly what we need. 

Here’s why: 

There is no junk in these particular gummies. You will also not find any:
• No Synthetic Colors
• No Artificial Sweeteners
• No Artificial Flavors
• No Artificial Preservatives
• No High Fructose Corn Syrup
• No GMOs
• No Gluten
• No Tree Nuts
• No Peanuts
• No Dairy
The SmartyPants Kids Probiotic Complete is different from other probiotics because they combine multi-strain probiotics and  Wellmune® probiotic immune support, all in one. They also deliver 4x more CFUs then leading gummy probiotics.

Before dishing out SmartyPants gummies to the boys, I tasted them. They are not super sweet like other gummy vitamins we have used before (yes to no artificial sweeteners), but they have a sweet enough taste where kids will chew them with no problem. Zayd’n and his brothers had no problem trying SmartyPants gummies and providing feedback. They all agreed that they were “okay, good, no problem swallowing them, and delicious!”

I’ll call that a Mom win.

    This looks like a breakfast anybody would want to eat! 🙂 And I love Smarty Pants. I haven’t tried their probiotic ones, but I have tried their ‘Women’s’ ones. 🙂
