As a family we love nothing more than getting outdoors, running wild and simply spending time together. Regardless of the weather, we will be out in the garden in our short and T-shirts or down the park in our wellies and waterproofs.
The only thing that ever dampens our fun is when the children are poorly, or simply over-tired, and we can’t muster up the energy to get up off the couch and outdoors to have fun. This time of year is always hard and it can feel as though we go through months of illness and fatigue, just getting through each day until Spring comes around again.
This year I was determined that we wouldn’t let anything ruin our fun, and thanks to Bassetts Vitamins we are doing exactly that. The Department of Health experts now recommend that during Autumn and Winter everyone should consider taking a daily supplement containing 10 micrograms of Vitamin D to protect bone and muscle health. Bassetts do not only that but their 3-6 multivitamins also contain added Calcium too for strong and healthy teeth and bones.
In delicious peach and apricot flavour Bassetts vitamins are made with natural flavours and colours, and no added sugar and the children actually told me that they were the best “sweets” they’d ever had! Even better they are just £5.50 for a pack of 30 pastilles, a small price to pay for an Autumn and Winter we can really enjoy!
Last month we visited our local pumpkin patch and the children had the best time! It’s one of our traditions before Halloween each year and the children love nothing more than getting a wheelbarrow and hunting down the biggest, best pumpkins they can find!
There’s nothing I love more than seeing them enjoying themselves, even when it involves the inevitable muddy puddles!
My parents always said that fresh air was the best medicine and I totally agree. Seeing colour in their cheeks and a sparkle in their eyes is so important, and of course I am always there in the background capturing every moment!
Usually I dread the Winter months but this year I am confident that if we continue to take care of ourselves, and keep up with our vitamins, we will have more days out and less days in!
We loved our trip to the pumpkin patch and one thing’s for sure, thanks to Bassetts multivitamins there will be no more dull days!
