I have to say, i don't love the advertisment-disguised-as-blog thing we have going on mothering lately... this is the third thing i feel i've been "duped" into reading... I thought it might be interesting to read something about nutrition and vaccination, but what we have here is no actual information, just some woman selling a product... would you care to tell us what these wonderous nutrients are that help with vaccinations, or are you just trying to sell your product?
Glad it's not just me feeling uncomfortable about this post. If it wasn't Mothering Sponsered I'd flag it as spam....

Food - as we have been taught - is the best form of nutrients....I reviewed the site for this faux article/ product ad and only the found list of vitamins listed and benefits. I thought after reading and clicking the link it could provide further detail in regard to combining this product with healthy diet of foods with these naturally occurring nutrients?!! Gave this article a change to not strictly be a product ad, disappointed 'Mothering' we know this site can do better by it's readers and ideology.
