Disclaimer: Through my affiliation with Fit Approach, I received SmartyPants Prenatal Vitamins in exchange for this review. As always, all opinions are my own.
One of the many topics of discussion at my first OB appointment after my positive pregnancy test was the need to take prenatal vitamins. My OB emphasized the importance of taking a prenatal vitamin in order to ensure that I’m not only getting the appropriate amount of vitamins but also a sufficient amount of folic acid in order to support a healthy growing baby.
Like I shared in last month’s SmartyPants Vitamins review, one of the many things I hate about having to take vitamins is the poor taste that most vitamins have. Most vitamins are large pills, which makes them difficult to swallow. Despite knowing how important vitamins are for me, especially prenatal vitamins, doesn’t change the fact that I would rather not have to take them.
Since I received my SmartyPants Prenatal Vitamins at the beginning of September, I’ve actually looked forward to taking my vitamins each day. These gummy like vitamins are not only smaller in size than some traditional vitamins, but they also taste great. The prenatal vitamins come in Orange, Lemon, and Strawberry-Banana.
Some of the highlights of the SmartyPants Prenatal Vitamins include:
- They are gluten free and do not contain any dairy, peanut, or tree nut products
- They do not contain any high fructose corn syrup
- They are 100% free of artificial sweeteners, colors, preservatives, and flavors
- They are iron free, should taking in too much iron be of a concern to you or your OB (since I’m anemic I take an iron supplement in addition to my prenatal vitamin)
