Growing pains abound around here in the literal and physical sense. On a regular basis, my son seems to forget that he is my child and does not belong to one of the other mothers at the school. The tweenager struggles and growing pains around here have caught me by surprise.
In the midst of his ill behavior he has also been complaining that his joints hurt. I thought growing pains were just an old people’s term, until my husband who is familiar with physiology due to his work informed me that growing pains are indeed a real thing.
What I gleaned from his highly technical definition of what causes “growing pains,” is during a time of rapid growth it is essential to properly fuel the body to ensure strong and healthy bones.
Recently Olly vitamins sent over a few of their expertly blended children’s vitamins that essentially address certain needs of the body. I’m sure he doesn’t get enough calcium, because he doesn’t drink milk so I thought it good to start him with “Growing Bones.”
….and because I am hawking sugar intake around here like a mad woman I noticed that each variety has different ingredients and most of the sugar included is either cane sugar or is naturally derived from vegetables like beets.
They are all naturally flavored and Addi has decided she wants to take the cherry flavored ones. This particular flavor tackles building immunity and seeing that she is the one guaranteed to get sick at least 4 times a year, she made a wise choice.
The composition of the other two varieties are as follows
