Medicines are a familiar sight at home. Coming from a family of nurses, I suppose it's only natural for me to keep a well-stocked medicine cabinet. And this is the reason why taking medicines was never a feat for the little man. He can actually brave even the most odd-smelling, weird-tasting antibiotics without much struggle. Ack, I can't even stand the stench (lol!) of his Clariget!
When I received these goodies from Unilab Philippines, I knew as soon as I opened the package that this is something the little man would like. Inside were...
The first and only Vitamin C in 'pop rocks' form - and they're now available in the market! Kids will surely love how the 'candy' pops and fizzles inside the mouth. And they get to boost their immunity while they're at it.
Each sachet of VitaPops contains 50mg of Vitamin C. That's equivalent to the amount of Vitamin C found in 5 glasses of milk, 28 pieces of calamansi, or 1 1/2 glass of freshly squeezed orange. And all that for just Php 10 per sachet!
Kids as young as the little man (he's turning four in November, by the way) can already take VitaPops. This product comes in a non-acidic Sodium Ascorbate formulation, which can be consumed on an empty stomach sans adverse reactions such as stomach irritation and allergies.
Don't worry about the popping and fizzing - that's what makes this 'medicine' fun to take. The 'candy' pops as a result of moisture coming in contact with the Carbon Dioxide-containing granules - the 'candy' dissolves, the gas escapes, and then it produces the popping and fizzing sound.
That being said, VitaPops is safe to take and FDA approved. After all, this new product comes from United Laboratories (Unilab), the makers of Ceelin.
And because the little man is a Ceelin baby, it's not surprising that he loves VitaPops just as much. Perhaps even more. :)
