And to fight any summer sicknesses, I make sure to give my children supplements like the Gummy Omegalicious® Omega 3 Formula & Probiolicious™ Gummies. They love the gummy form and I love that they contain no artificial colors, flavors, sweeteners, preservatives, or additives. They also have no gluten, soy, yeast, milk, eggs, nuts, fish or shellfish!
