My kids are the fussiest of eaters! I can’t count the amount of times they want me to prepare 2 or 3 different meals just to make everyone happy. I hate to admit but many times I give in rather than having to say “if you don’t eat what I’ve made, you can go to bed hungry!”
So both Josiah and Annaliese struggle with veggies, they both love fruit which is great. At one time Josiah would only eat carbs and hardly any protein, now he enjoys meat and fish but hates cheese and yoghurt. Annaliese is not keen on carbs and doesn’t like red meat so will only eat chicken and fish, she loves yoghurt but hates cheese. So you see my dilemma.
However they tend to be ok with supplements, they regularly take probiotics and fish oil.
Now that we are in the heart of the season for colds and flu it’s important their immune system is supported.
I was kindly sent a product from ZOJO Beauty Elixirs to try out.
The idea of setting up ZOJO arose from the need for change. I am a busy mother and businesswoman. I want to squeeze everything out of life, try new things, look after those close to me, and not forget about myself, either.This kind of lifestyle takes its toll and impacts negatively on health and wellbeing. I began to see the results of my frantic life on the run – tiredness, burn-out, feeling weighed down by too many duties and responsibilities. Not only for my company, but also for my family.We are what we eat, but children look at it differently. My daughter would eat only fries, pancakes with chocolate cream or sausages. Vegetables? Disgusting!
I had to find a way of balancing and enriching her diet and adding what she was missing out on. I didn’t want to reach for the supplements which were being sold at that time. Pure chemicals – lack of nutritious ingredients, taste and enjoyment. These products seemed more like a daily necessity than a pleasant ritual.
After a long search, I came across adaptogens and their unique natural strength, which I want to share with you today. I spent years looking for this magic, but you can benefit from it right now! I hope you love it too.
We have created our elixirs from pure, organic ingredients – the rare and those which have been known for years by practitioners of Eastern holistic herbal medicine. We have linked herbs, seeds and the best adaptogens into ready-made, perfectly balanced mixtures.
100% of our ingredients are organic. Each has a certificate from the UK Organic Farmers and Growers Association. We only choose the best quality organic raw materials which come from trusted sources. Our natural, plant-based, beauty elixirs are vegan, GMO-free, lactose and gluten free and they do not contain any artificial nasties such as preservatives, colourings, artificial sweeteners or taste enhancers.
Our elixirs have been developed by experienced nutritionists from the UK with the aim to include precisely the right mixture of active ingredients to support physical and mental health and wellbeing.

I’m really pleased with this formula and I love that the ingredients are 100% organic. Knowing my kids are fussy I hoped they would like the taste and of course the first question I got was “what does it taste like?”
I mix this with a bit of juice and both kids actually like it which is fab. I tried it myself and it tastes pretty good.
With this jar you get 7 servings so with both kids using it we got 3 servings. Since they both enjoy using it, I would consider purchasing the full size 150g.
