The Irwin Kids website offers easy to read information on all supplements. For parents who wish to try out the products before buying, free trials are available as well. Health tips and contact information is provided for parents as well. All Irwin Kids supplements can be purchased from the website or from retail stores. A store locator is provided for parents to search their area for retail establishments.
Irwin Kids supplements are tested via an in house laboratory. While the website evokes feelings of calm and trust, we would like to see outside test results listed on the website. Links to daily value recommendations or any website supporting the claims of Irwin Naturals in regards to children’s health would help a parent to trust the company.
Weight loss medications are not an option for children and Irwin Kids vitamins and supplements are not formulated to increase fat burn or metabolism. A healthy body, however, is an important start to any weight loss plan. Parents may be able to take the same Irwin Kids vitamins their children enjoy as part of a supplementation program for better health which may affect weight loss in the long run.
- Ingredient lists are available online.
- Irwin Kids products can be ordered from the website or retail stores.
- The website is easy to navigate and fun.

Parents who want their children to live a healthier lifestyle may like Irwin Kids supplements. The products are clearly created with children in mind, but could offer some research support from a third party lab. Free trials are available so parents can take the Irwin Kids supplements for a free trial run with the kids.
