EcoMom: Review and Giveaway

As a mom of two girls, I am always on the lookout for great ways to keep them healthy and happy. If a product is also eco-friendly that is an added bonus. Whether it is toys, books, home, or bath and body products, I am also looking for products that will encourage proper stewardship of the Earth around me and my family. One company that helps me in this quest is EcoMom.


I have had the pleasure to work with EcoMom a few times during this last year,  and it has been a great partnership with Jody and EcoMom. This time I am pleased to introduce you to a great health product for kids: Smarty Pants All-In-One Gummy Mulit-Vitamin!




About EcoMom:

This program gives you an annual memebership, providing you with a 15% discount on every order, as well as free shipping with NO $75 minimum requirement. The EcoPass has a cost of $99 and if you purchase it during the month of July, you will have a lifetime membership with NO renewal fees! 





About Smarty Pants:


Can't get your kids to eat wild salmon, eat enough veggies, or take yucky fish oil to get their Omega 3's or Vitamin D?

Neither could they. That's why they created great tasting All-in-One SmartyPants Gummy Multi-Vitamins which combine

• Multi-Vitamins,
• Omega 3 eco-friendly fish oils,
• Vitamin D,
 • Choline & 12 other key nutrients.

Parents SAVE ~40% buying All-in-One SmartyPants instead of buying separate multi-vitamins, Omega 3's, and Vitamin D.

Great for kids and grown-ups too!

Made in California, SmartyPants use only the best ingredients, are GMP-certified & FDA-compliant, and tested for purity by an independent lab.

SmartyPants gives their multi-vitamin to their own kids as a testament to how safe and awesome they really are!

SmartyPants Gummies only have 5g of Organic cane sugar per serving (that is 80% LESS sugar than in a glass of unsweetened apple juice).  SmartyPants are made with only natural colors & flavors and no High Fructose Corn Syrup. They are also gluten- and casein-free.  They never use any fake or artificial flavors, sweeteners, or dyes that are bad for your kids!  Their Omega 3 DHA & EPA fish oil comes from eco-friendly sustainable small fish sources. No unsustainable tuna or contaminated fish!


GET HEALTH, GIVE HEALTH: When you buy SmartyPants, you help not just your kids but other moms and kids as well.Every time you buy a bottle of SmartyPants, they make a 1-to-1 matching nutrient grant to a child most in need through their partnership with Vitamin Angels.

FLAVORS includes Lemon, Orange, and Cherry

INDICATIONS Take daily, along with eating a healthy diet and exercise, for optimal brain and body health. Studies indicate that Omega 3's may be helpful in maintaining heart health as well as boosting various brain functions.

My Review:


Although I make sure that my children eat well balanced meals and snacks, I realize that they will not always eat everything I offer them. That is the nature of them being children. In the last year I have decided that I would start the girls on a multi-vitamin in order to ensure they are getting all the minerals and vitamin's their growing bodies need. I just did not realize what a daunting task it would be to decide what brand or type to use. So when an opportunity arose to review Smarty Pants All-In-One Multi-Vitamin I jumped at it.


I love that this multi-vitamin is great tasting and as a gummy style, it makes taking medication fun. My daughter is always asking to have her "smarty pants" in the morning. I love it! I can't wait for my youngest to be able to start using them! I also love that it is safe for most children with allergies, since being free of major allergens like yeast, wheat, milk, eggs, soy, gluten, peanuts, shellfish, artificial  colors and flavors, and salicylates. Although my girls do not have allergies, I have several friends whose children do, and I can confidently suggest this product knowing it is safe.


A definite winner for all families and I highly recommend this product!
