Seven years ago, my doctor told me I needed to be on a multivitamin because I was going to have a baby. All I could think about was how I was going to swallow them. I hate taking pills, it’s like an instant gag reflex, not because of the size and shape so much as for the taste of it starting to dissolve the moment it touches your tongue. I learned really fast that I could what I needed from my vitamins if I started taking kids versions with the added bonus of them being chewable and flavored. But even kids vitamins evolved and soon they had gummy chewables too. I think Centrum® saw that parents were doing the same thing I was and eating their kids vitamins to get the benefits of Vitamins B12, D and E— to help fill nutritional gaps. Now we can have our adult gummies without doubling our kids versions with Centrum® MultiGummies.
We have substantially changed our diets over the last few years but we are still guilty of hitting a drive through every now and then. Though eating healthy may be a goal, a recent survey from Prevention and Centrum® finds that although more than 75 percent of Americans believe it is fairly easy to get recommended daily values of vitamins and minerals by eating a healthy, balanced diet, nearly half of those polled are concerned they may not be getting enough of one or more key nutrients. That’s easy to see when 74% of Americans agree it’s a lot easier to eat unhealthy than it is to eat a healthy, balanced diet. They don’t make drive throughs with kale and chia seeds on the menu yet, unfortunately. When you’re on the go and busy all the time families are left to eating fast and easy choices that leave huge gaps in our diets.
My morning routine includes a cup of coffee first, followed by my Centrum® MultiGummies. Then I make myself breakfast because this is the one meal that sets the tone for my whole day. The days that I don’t eat breakfast are the days that I just feel hungry all day and can’t focus on what I’m doing. When you’re trying to take care of everyone else in the house it’s hard to remember to take care of yourself sometimes.
