Style, Decor & More: "Chews" To Be Strong & Active!

"Chews" To Be Strong & Active!

Fall is here and with it comes change. Soon the bright green leaves on the trees will be turning vibrant shades of orange, yellow and red. But it isn't just the weather that brings changes, most of us have changes in our daily lives as well. Children are going back to school and adapting to new teachers, classes and sleep routines. The days are getting shorter and we are also having to wear additional layers of clothing as the days get cooler. The list goes on and on.

This fall when my daughter left for college, things really changed around the house. Ahhh...I never dreamed it would be so difficult to let her go! She was hardly home her senior year of high school and I thought that would make the transition to college easier. Nope. Nothing could have prepared me to walk into her empty room each night. Sigh... 

I feel better knowing that I've sent my daughter off to college with plenty of advice to tackle the challenges she may face ahead. She's a good girl and has always been very responsible, but when it comes to making healthy diet choices, she could use a little help. She's a picky eater sometimes, but thanks to Viactiv, I have one less thing to worry about when it comes to her getting enough calcium in her diet. My daughter loves taking Viactiv's milk chocolate flavored chews every day! 

Calcium is very important for teenage girls and women. Did you know that 68% of women, in general, are calcium deficient, and a whopping 86% of teenage girls have calcium-deficient diets? For teen girls, this deficiency comes at a crucial time for bone health, since 95% of bone building occurs by the time she's 20 years old! 

Viactiv is the #1 doctor-recommended calcium chew and it's available in two delicious soft chew flavors (milk chocolate and caramel). They're individually wrapped to make it easy for school-aged girls to pack them in their school lunch bags and then later have another one after dinner! Make it part of your daily routine to help you remember! Even just one Viactiv chew per day (500 mg of calcium with 500 IU of vitamin D and 40 mg of Vitamin K) can help her #BeActiv in her bone health. Health is all about getting involved, moving, eating right and including the recommended amount of daily calcium for bone health. Another great way to get even more calcium in your diet is to add fruit smoothies using low-fat milk and/or low-fat yogurt to further boost calcium intake. 

So, what does #BeActiv mean? To #BeActiv means getting involved, getting moving and getting healthier, including making sure you’re getting the recommended amount of daily calcium for  bone health based on your age.

Pack a calcium-fortified lunch every day with Viactiv chews!

Maintaining strong healthy bones throughout our lives is very important and I'm especially concerned for my daughter. Two of my husband's close relatives suffer with osteoporosis. It is apparent when you see the curvature of their spines and loss of height. One of them is my age! I recently brought a package of Viactiv chews to her stressing how yummy and calcium-rich they are, while trying not to insult her.  Quite frankly, I do not want this to happen to either my daughter, myself or anyone! 

Thankfully, as I have mentioned above, my daughter really loves the taste of Viactiv's calcium chews which helps her to remember to take one twice a day! They are very tasty and I look forward to the daily treat myself. I'm personally a huge fan of the caramel flavored Viactiv chews - they're sooooo good!
