Now to my Nutri10 Plus Food Supplement Update, here's the update from the moms of the kids I gave the supplements to try. So far, most of them like the supplement and many of them have a good feedback to tell. :)

MJ's moms said her son's suuuuper active and would ask for food every time! hahaha! True to its words, Nutri10 really helped MJ become "aktibo't magana". MJ's son let's him take the supplement at night before going to bed. MJ is a kind of kid that doesn't really like vitamins but his mom's forcing him to take them. Not that he likes the taste of it, but he doesn't hate it either! The only challenge MJ's mom is facing right now is that due to hyperactivity, MJ would most often not sleep during afternoon naps.

Joash's mom says so far, Nutri10 has done so many good results on her son, and I can see that too! I saw him get bigger, specially his cheeks! cute!!! She said Joash became more "antukin", more "magana" and she doesn't have problem giving the supplement to him because he likes its ponkan taste.

Jezrel likes Nutri10 too and same with Joash, she eats and sleeps more often now. She doesn't have any problem giving Nutri10 to Jezrel as well because the flavor works great on Jezrel.

RV, on the other hand, doesn't seem to show any good result so far but I think it's too early to tell too. And at his age, being super active, we may not be able to tell the difference right away. RV's mom said he's not into eating and sleeping a lot, so we'll see what happens on our 4th month update. :)

Thanks for you time! See you in 2 weeks for these kids' update. :)))
