To participate in today’s Virtual Healthy Child Party and Giveaway, please watch the Healthy Child Healthy World’s “Wake Up” Story video and answer the question that follows in the comments section below.

As a thank you for participating in our Virtual Healthy Child Party we are offering one lucky family two 120 count bottles of Nordic Naturals Nordic Berries Multivitamin Treats for adults and kids alike (retail value $22.95 each) plus a grab bag of product samples and coupons from a selection of Healthy Child Healthy World Trusted Sponsor (worth ~$25.00 in products and savings), bringing today’s total prize value to $70.90!

What are Nordic Berries?

Called a “multivitamin treat for adults and kids alike”, Nordic Berries are pectin based multivitamins with no gelatin or added coloring. Rich in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, this delicious sweet-and-sour citrus multivitamin supports good nutrition and wellness as part of a healthy diet, and makes an ideal companion to any of the Nordic Naturals fish oil products. They are manufactured in a facility certified to be free of allergens derived from milk, eggs, fish, shellfish, tree nuts, wheat, peanuts, or soy. No gluten. For 2 years and over.

Why Nordic Naturals?

Purity is essential when it comes to what we put in our bodies. Nordic Naturals not only understands that, they based their company on it.

  • Proven Purity: All of their oils surpass strict international standards and 3rd party testing for purity, freshness and quality (including independent lab tests for heavy metals, dioxins, and PCBs)
  • Exceptional Freshness: Oxygen-free processing from boat to bottle
  • Great Taste: Leading freshness and 100% natural flavoring ensure no fishy smell, taste, of aftertaste
  • Triglyceride form for up to 70% better absorption
  • Responsible dosing
  • Sustainable practices: 100% of fish is wild caught and processed with minimal environmental impact
  • Transparency: want to see their lab test results? Ask for a certificate of analysis, and compare!

My kids and I take Nordic Naturals Strawberry flavored DHA every day and I feel good about giving my family sustainably harvested Cod Liver Oil as our natural source of Omega-3s.

And now for your chance to win today’s prize package!

    I have seen this video many times. I work with a company that has partnered with HCHW and every time I watch this video my initial thought is gratitude to HCHW for being able to put a serious issue in a very informative, thought provoking message. People will watch this, and it will (hopefully) stir their emotions. It is visually appealing…My second reaction, is its sooooooo simple…small changes everyday by consumers, can lead to drastic changes by companies if they want to continue to be in business….yet, we are habitual creatures, and have been conditioned to believe what these corporations tell us is Healthy, b/c its “DR Recommended” ….Chemicals are a serious issue in our life, and our children’s life…we are not meant to be surrounded by a chemical soup, our bodies are not designed for that…we are meant to be in nature, thriving off the energies the earth provides for us. If anyone is interested in learning what we are doing to assist HCHW in their mission of educating families to create a healthy home environment, feel free to contact me.

    After watching this video I felt a rush of sadness and anxiety but also hope. Sad because every time I see the figure regarding how many chemicals are baby are BORN with, it’s just terrible. Anxiety because I wish I could do every single one of these things and protect my baby as much as I can but I need to reassure myself that I am doing some things and, like the video said, all the small things do add up. And hope because this information is getting out there and the word is spreading and I think taking steps to live toxin-free will become more and more commonplace. Thanks for being my friend and ally through this sometimes overwhelming fight!

    After watching the video my immediate reaction was to feel nautious and upset. Our dog died of cancer from what we think was pesticide exposure. Thanks for hosting this party.

    My immediate reaction is to do something. I can do something and it will be better than doing nothing. Every small step makes a difference in my family’s life and Its not hard at all. After watching I started reading more about it and already started to make changes, from what I use to clean to what we eat.

    My reaction is I need to do more. I have started making my own baby and dog toys so I know exactly what they are made of. Looking forward to more ideas to help!

    Every time I see this video it makes me sad that we’re bombarded with cheap, crappy products filled with unnecessary synthetic chemicals in every single thing around us. I just remind myself to take it 1 day at a time. Today I can eat well and choose wise products. Tomorrow I can find the funds to get a new mattress, etc.

    maybe it is the day, but this has me in tears. It is so simple, share your knowledge and have faith that change will follow. It is nauseating how toxic our world is.

    It is amazing to me how many nasty chemicals surround us, and more than that, but that people just generally accept this as normal! Thank you for posting the video. I hope many people are made aware to the dangers that surround us daily.
