Divided Stainless Steel Containers
These New Wave Enviro Stainless Steel Divided Containers are a great alternative to chemical-laden plastics or breakable glass. The containers are dishwasher safe and come with covers in your choice of pink, blue, or yellow. Stainless steel is toxin-free, non-leaching, and BPA-free. Pack crackers and cheese on one side, sliced fruit on the other; veggies in one compartment and dip right beside. Prefer a non-divided container, but still want the stainless steel? Check out these Stainless Steel Containers, also by New Wave Enviro. Either container can be tossed into a bag or backpack, and two or three will fit perfectly in our Bamboo Lunch Bag.
Flip ‘N Sip Water Bottle
Flip ‘N Sip Designer Water Bottles are made from BPA-free stainless steel and are easy to handle for even very young children. Kids will love to choose from the four designs! These water bottles are easy to clean, dishwasher safe (cap on top rack only, spout closed), and the flip-top spout means no spills. Looking for something a little different? We have a whole selection of BPA-free water bottles in both glass and stainless steel.
Garden of Life Children’s Multivitamin
A multivitamin is a simple way to cover nutritional gaps for kids who tend to be picky, too rushed to eat well, or simply not a fan of veggies. Multivitamins can also provide a consistent source of nutrients for children who are erratic in their eating habits. Garden of Life Children’s Multivitamin is a whole food supplement, which is less refined. Whole food vitamins are not isolated or stripped of the beneficial, synergistic compounds that naturally occur in foods; they are closer to their natural form. They are more bioavailable and better utilized by the body, and are free of chemicals and synthetics. Garden of Life Children’s Whole Food Multivitamin is a tasty chewable gummy and contains no artificial colors, flavors, or allergens.
Vaxa Attend Strategy Pac
Whether your child is just a bit fidgety and distractible or has full-blown ADHD, the Vaxa Attend Strategy Pac can help. These all-natural, gentle homeopathic formulas are designed to improve focus, attention, memory, and concentration. Attend supports cognitive functioning, reduces nervousness and hyperactivity, and keeps the brain balanced and focused. Extress improves relaxation, sleep, and mood swings, while Memorin supports mental alertness, memory, and information processing and recall. Combined, these three products are a safe way to avoid behavioral problems, reduce frustration, and promote better learning.
Blue Ice Fermented Cod Liver Oil
Fermented Cod Liver Oil is excellent for growing brains, because it is packed with EPA and DHA, essential fatty acids which are necessary for brain development and functioning. There is also some evidence that fish oils may be beneficial for those with ADHD (read more here). It is also an excellent source of vitamin A, which supports vision and the immune system, and vitamin D, which is good for teeth, bones, and immune functioning.
When it comes to immune support, Perfect Cordyceps is an excellent choice. This supplement is made from organic Cordyceps Sinensis mushrooms and may help prevent succumbing to the constant rounds of colds and flu circulating at school. What’s more, Cordyceps are an adaptogen — they help the body cope with stress and normalize mood and sleep. If your child tends to feel anxious or stressed by school, or the change in routine that heading back to school entails, Perfect Cordyceps may be the answer to helping him or her best adapt.
Melatonin Sleep Spray
If your kids have been up late all summer long, waking up to catch the school bus may be quite the challenge! Mercola Melatonin Sleep Spray shifts the body’s internal clock back to normal with just a few simple sprays. Melatonin is a hormone, naturally produced by the body, which regulates sleep/wake cycles. This is a good supplement to have on hand all year round, when the occasional late night or vacation may significantly throw off your child’s sleep schedule.
