One of the most common questions I get from moms is whether or not there is a halal brand of children’s vitamins. Some may wonder why this would even be necessary- what could possibly be in a vitamin product to render it haram (impermissible) in a Muslim’s diet? Well, for one thing, when you get into chewable products, most often times the cheapest ingredient in them to make them ‘chewy’ is gelatin, based from pork. Gelatin can also come from beef or fish, but it’s usually more expensive and if you’re not sure about the source of that animal product in terms of how it was raised and processed, do you really want that in your child’s vitamin or snack?
I go a step further and say, not only should we find something halal, but also something that is free of chemicals, harmful preservatives, colors and dyes. Additionally, this should be available for children and adults!
In comes Noor Vitamins…
I came across Noor Vitamins several years ago when they first came out as a new product, but I’ve only recently tried them for myself- yes, I tried the children’s gummies vitamin. They’re not only delicious and fruity, but they’re vegan, so free of pork-based gelatin, they’re also gluten-free and preservative free, too. I wish these were around when I was a kid, but I’m so glad they’re available now for children- and I think it’s great that they’ve partnered up with Noor Kids (the awesome book series that teaches Islam in a fun, colorful and interactive way), to make their products fun and appealing to kids and their parents.
