Did you know that calcium plays an important role in the growth of the baby growing inside of you? Well, it does! Calcium aids in the growth of healthy teeth, bones, heart, and even their nerves and tiny muscles*. This is why ensuring pregnant moms like you #BumpUpYourCalcium to make sure you are getting the recommended 1000 mg of calcium a day.  Because without having enough calcium in your diet, your growing baby will draw what it needs from your bones, which will lead to bone issues for you in the future.  You do not want that! Trust me, I know from experience.

How to add calcium to your diet to #BumpUpYourCalcium?

There are plenty of ways to increase your calcium intake like through consuming calcium-rich foods, such as milk, yogurt, cheese, and leafy greens, but do you really want to drink more than three cups of milk to reach the recommended 1000 mg of calcium needed for the day? I know I don’t. Thankfully, with supplements like Viactiv Calcium Soft Chews, I can easily get the calcium I need daily.

In a survey of 1,000 OB/GYN offices nationwide, 7 out of 10 OB/GYNS recommend a calcium supplement during pregnancy and, of those who do, 9 out of 10 recommend Viactiv. (Source: BrandPerx July 2015 survey of 1000 OB/GYN offices nationwide).

The Viactiv Calcium Soft Chews are available in milk chocolate or caramel flavors, but my personal favorite is the caramel. The best part is they taste really good, which makes it hard to eat just two  – you only need two of these chews for 100% of your daily recommended calcium.  For people like me who are also Vitamin D deficient, these CALCIUM CHEWS have Vitamins D and K, which aid in calcium absorption.

Since the Viactiv Calcium Soft Chews are each individually wrapped, it is easy for busy moms like you and me who are constantly on-the-go, to take them with you so that you never forget to take them. But, how could you? They taste that good! It’s so good that you would not even notice that it’s a supplement. And Viactiv contains 1/2 the calories and 1/2 the sugar compared to leading calcium gummy supplements so it’s a win, win.

What about my calcium intake post-partum?

I can surely attest to the importance of maintaining the daily recommended levels of calcium even after pregnancy, especially if you are breastfeeding.  Having the proper amounts of calcium helps to keep your bones and teeth strong and healthy, as well as decrease your risk of osteoporosis.

    I was just talking to my class about prenatal vitamins. I can now tell them about this brand and the flavors. Caramel would probably be my favorite as well.

  • A good bowl of green leafy veggies would be on point right now. I’m surprised to hear they are good for calcium.

  • Felecia Monique

    Wow! I had no idea about these lil things! Great post!

  • I take calcium supplement while I was a pro runner and I still do now but not as much then.

  • I remember taking the chocolate Viactiv when I was pregnant with my daughter a few years ago. They tasted great. I think I may start up again. Thanks for the reminder!

  • A Carmel chew sounds yummy. They know how to make it appealing. Strong healthy calcium and bones are extremely important.

    They look like they would taste good. Will keep them in mind. Thanks for the review.

  • DanielleSWilliams

    It’s good to know that Viactiv is available in such great flavors. A lot of supplements don’t taste the best which kind of deters you from taking it. Chocolate and caramel are enough to keep me coming back for more vitamin D.

    I cant attest tgat these chews are really good especially the carmel flavored one. It’s like a treat for me at the start and end of my day. Great information foe new moms to have because sometimes we forget about that.
