And you’ve probably had your fair share of making them. But let me reassure you that this recipe is unlike any of them. In fact, it might very well taste just like a previous smoothie you’ve made; however, this recipe is packed with a super powerful antioxidant that will help support your child’s immune system. So if your kiddo tends to get sick often or you’re just looking for a natural way to prevent them from getting sick, this ones for you mama. I’ll be sharing what the secret ingredient is with you in a bit but before we get to that, I wanted to share my testimony.

 

Our girls were getting sick constantly more so since our oldest is now in Elementary School and brings home all the school germs with her. It was doctor appointment after doctor appointment and rounds of antibiotics that I realized I needed to put an end to it. So at my wits end, I started to search online for natural alternatives to build up their immune system. I saw the usual probiotics and vitamins which I had previously tried and yes it helped a bit but it did not prevent them from getting sick still.

 

So while at a conference, I came across a booth that had an elderberry crystal. They mentioned how great it was for the immune system. My ears perked up and I immediately asked if they had any for kids. And to my surprise, they did! They gave me a handful of samples to take home and try out. That very same day when I got home from my conference and made smoothies with it. Trust me when I say my girls did not even notice it in their smoothies. It’s been 3 months we’ve been using it and have not gotten sick since. So you bet I’ve stocked up on this powerful antioxidant.

And if you’re kiddos are not really into smoothies, make popsicles out of them or add the crystals to a berry yogurt and even juice. 😉

    Your story is like our story. We should have VIP parking at the doctors office as we have not missed much since November. I’ve tried everything natural because I’m done with antibiotics for my little ones so frequently. Can’t wait to try this. Thank you for sharing!

  • #sponsored As a mom, I’m constantly struggling with pulling our girls away from the screens and shifting their focus to pretend play. Surely, I’m not the only one dealing with this right? 🙋‍♀️
.

So, you can just imagine the excitement that went on in my little home office when I received an invitation to be a guest at a roundtable with a select group of influencers — and child development experts in conjunction with Melissa from Melissa & Doug and Parents Magazine in NYC! 🗽More so as we love all the @melissaanddougtoys pretend play toys. Plus, I’m looking forward to hearing more about the movement that is at the heart of the Melissa + Doug brand: the importance of play — in all its forms. And to share with you all the tips and recommendations. .

Be sure to peep our stories throughout our stay this week because we’re also going to be attending a preview of the much anticipated NEW @faoschwarz store opening in Rockefeller Plaza!!! And check back for a full recap on the blog when we return to CA. There’s going to be an amazing GIVEAWAY that will surely help jumpstart your holiday shopping, too! #takebackchildhood
