About Vitamins

1. Is a daily vitamin necessary for kids - or even a good idea?

We all need vitamins and minerals. They help release energy from our food and help build muscle, bone, blood and other important body parts, and make them stronger. Without vitamins and minerals, we cannot maintain good health and normal growth. In an ideal world kids would eat a healthy nutritious diet, with proper exercise, and avoid junk food. Unfortunately in the real world, like many parents, you may be worried that your children are not getting enough nutrients from food - especially if you have a picky eater in the house. Also we want our kids to excel in studies, sports and shine like a superstar. Keeping in mind the unhealthy eating habits, is it possible? We bring you a ray of hope created for Indian kids with a tasty natural fruit flavored multivitamin gummy with 9 essential vitamins including the very important vitamin D.

Chubears Ingredients

1. What flavors are used in chubears chewable multivitamin?

Only Natural flavors are used in chubears - strawberry, pineapple, orange and lemon. No artificial flavor is added. Artificial flavors have been linked to hyperactivity in children and so we have avoided them completely. Our children are eating these gummies, and we want the best for them, don't we?

2. Are these gummies vegetarian?

Chubears products are one hundred percent vegetarian.Many parents ask their relatives/ friends to get gummy vitamins from abroad. However, most foreign gummies contain gelatin. As per PETA (People for Ethical Treatment of Animals), Gelatin is a protein obtained by boiling skin, tendons, ligaments, and/or bones with water. It is usually obtained from cows or pigs. Chubears on the other hand is made from pectin, which is derived entirely from fruits. It comes in 4 natural flavors; strawberry, lemon, pineapple & orange, and also contains no artificial colors or flavors.

3. Are Chubears as good as the US / foreign gummies brought by my relative/ friend/ well-wishers?

To be honest, we are certain that Chubears are better than the 'average' chewable vitamins that have been purchased from a foreign store. Here are top 5 reasons why

  • Reason no. 1 - It is 100 % vegetarian - please check the label of the foreign gummy that you are using - there is a good chance that it contains Gelatin. Gelatin is a protein obtained by boiling skin, tendons, ligaments, and/or bones with water. It is usually obtained from cows or pigs. Chubears on the other hand is made from pectin, which is derived entirely from fruits. It comes in 4 natural flavors; strawberry, lemon, pineapple & orange.
  • Reason no. 2 - Chubears has NO artificial colors or flavors - Again, check the label of your foreign gummy. It is likely to say permitted colors & flavors or additives used. Artificial flavors have been linked to hyperactivity in children and so we have avoided them completely. Our children are eating these gummies, and we want the best for them, don't we?
  • Reason no. 3 - Chubears is created by an Indian Pediatrician specially for Indian kids. Indian kids eat differently, grow differently and have different lifestyles as compared to Western children. Their requirements are different, hence why should we use foreign gummies for Indian children?
  • Reason no. 4 - This may come as a surprise to you, but Chubears taste better! Ask your child to try a Chubears and the foreign gummy and you might be in for a shocker. The natural colors and fruit flavors of Chubears are appreciated by children and their parents. Go ahead take one for yourself too - we know you want to!
  • Reason no. 5 - Cheaper, convenient ordering, better packaging, great customer support, ask a nutritionist, order on whatsapp, cash on delivery - Take your pick

    We are available 24/7 for emailing or whatsapping your requirements. You can even send in your order or any queries about your child to be answered by a Dietitian or even by DrGaurav Gupta, Pediatrician (creator of Chubears).

4. Why is there vitamin D in chubears multivitamin Gummy Bears?

Due to lack of exposure to direct sunlight (since kids are becoming more TV watchers & indoor video game players) and predominantly vegetarian diet most kids are severely deficient in Vitamin D3. Sunlight is the most important source of Vit D3 that is needed for calcium absorption which causes bone and muscle development. By adding Vitamin D, chubears takes care of all the essential vitamins for children's proper growth and development.

5. Why is there no Iron in chubears?

Iron is very important for the growth and development of children. However, iron overdose is a serious problem if a large amount of Iron is taken at one time. This can lead to serious complications, and hence tasty chewable vitamins like Chubears do not contain Iron. We recommend iron supplementation separately in the form of liquid syrup or drops. Please write to us if you want more advice on how to get iron in your child's diet or a good liquid iron supplement for your child.
