Not sure about other kids but my bubba is particularly difficult to feed medicine and vitamins. She instantly spits out anything that tastes strange to her. I have tried several brands of vitamins but nothing seems to please her taste buds and I never want to force anything on her. I only force feed her medicine like paracetamol when urgently needed aka when she gets sick (which is by the way SO RARE, THANK YOU LORD!).
As a kid, I loved the good old Flintstones Chewable Vitamins. I have always been a sweet tooth that’s why the candy form made me love Flintstones so much. My Yaya had to stop me from taking too much and get a vitamin-overdose LOL! 🙂
I don’t see the Flintstones vitamins being sold commercially anymore but I do see some other brands of chewables. My problem with vitamins in hard candy form is how it could be quite dangerous for younger kids and also harmful to the teeth. I prefer the softer chewy vitamins in jelly form. I think kids these days prefer that kind too.
Lo and behold, the awesome moms of MBP and Rebisco invited us to a fun-filled family event featuring VITA CUBES! Hooray! 🙂
So the name alone already gives you an idea of what the product is. VITA CUBES are cleverly crafted fruit-flavored jelly candies that are high in vitamins and minerals needed by growing children. These delicious vitamins come in 2 pack sizes, one with 5 different flavors per pack and the other individually wrapped jelly candy. Even I can get addicted to these goodies. Yum!
More importantly, VITA CUBES are not just appealing to kids because they’re yummy, they’re also healthy and packed with nutrition needed by children!

For Only P12 for a 50g pack, I’m actually thinking of giving these as treats this upcoming Halloween! Super worth it!
