We received a happy mail last week. Upon opening the parcel, my kids got more excited than me.
Because we received Seven Seas Fruit Gummies!
SO WHO IS SEVEN SEAS?
Since 1935, Seven Seas has been researching and developing the right formulation to meet the needs in supporting good health for families.
The Seven Seas story begins with cod liver oil, and the history goes way back to the 1700s.
(you can read more about the history here)
Seven Seas believes that a healthy life begins with good nutrition. Driven by this philosophu and back with scientific expertise, Seven Seas is committed to bringing good nutrition for you and your family since 1935. Today, Seven Seas health supplements are sold in more than 100 countries worldwide.
PACKAGING AND FIRST IMPRESSIONS
Upon opening the parcel, we saw a reusable Seven Seas bag. And in it, I also found an Activity Sheet. (more about that later).
And of course inside the bag, there are the 3 boxes of Fruit Gummies.
These are the different Fruit Gummies flavours.
Inside the sealed boxes, they contained the gummies packaged in plastic transparent bottles.
The transparent bottles are good for easier identification after I discarded the boxes.
The flavours names are also bold and clear with the different colours for easy identification - Red for strawberries, purple for blackcurrent, and orange for orange!
Now these are the Fruit Gummies bottles in more detailed.
Their nutritional ingredient are also listed at the back of the bottle, with clear expiry dates. I like that the expiry dates are printed on the bottles, and not on the boxes like some because I tend to discard the boxes.
Clear instructions are also printed on the bottle.
It is also printed on the bottles that these gummies are suitanle for children age 4 years & above.
And that the recommended dose is 2-4 fruit gummies daily.
To maintain freshness, all the bottles are sealed with this white thick plastic in which you need to tear it off.
SEVEN SEAS FRUIT GUMMIES FACTS
Available in packs of 30 delicious tasting gummies, Seven Seas Fruit Gummies come in three flavors, each enriched with different vitamins and minerals essential for the children’s formative years.
MY KIDS TRYING THEM OUT
There is no need to ask which one Shern would choose first because knowing that his favourite colour is purple, I immediately knew that he would go for the blackcurrent flavour!
This is Shern trying out the gummies.
Ready, get set, go, into his mouth it went and immediately he gave me a Good thumbs up sign!
Although I knew that this is only meant for kids above 4 years old, I figured out that mainly is because kids below 4 is not supposed to have sugar, and also gummies can be a potential choking hazard for younger kids.
But to pacify Khye and also because both Shern and I was so hyped about it and I didn't want Khye to feel so left out, I cut the gummies into 4 small pieces to avoid it being a choking hazard.
And also I think a little sugar won't hurt him
And so Khye had his taste of one gummy as well, and look at him giving me his index finger which is his way to say 'Good'!! hahahhaa
It tasted really nice, and I know that because I popped 3 gummies in my mouth too! haha. :)
And remember the Activity Book that came with it?
It is a fun and engaging booklet which tells and explain to kids like Shern the story of how vitamins (in this case the Gummies Fruity Heroes) help to fight off the bad bacterias and viruses.
Is really a good way to let Shern understand the benefit of taking vitamins.
It also came with some activities (which Shern loves), like connect the dots, puzzles and such.
I took it out with me to a cafe outing, and Shern had fun doing that while waiting for our food. Kills time while Shern had fun!

I let Shern pop 2-3 gummies a day, but I give him different flavours, so that he gets the different vitamins.
And I don't give Khye any, for the time being (besides that one gummy!)
Overall, I feel that this is a great product because they are irresistibly yummy, and positively healthy product. (erm, minus the sugar, haha)
But I think a little sugar doesn't harm much. And it is definitely way healthier than sweets or chocolates!
Besides these, I do let Shern takes multivites too, and also Manuka honey, and all of them are sweet! haha. I guess sweet appeals to kids and imho, it is better for them to have a little sweet, than to not take any vitamins at all, unless of course if your kids is not a picky eater and eats his fruits and greens.
Unfortunately for me, Shern is a picky eater and he not only hates greens, but he hates fruits too. ;(
So I need to turn to vitamins to build up his immune system, and thus this is a great choice for us!
Let me end this post with a photo of Shern enjoying his gummy!
