The Importance of Literacy/Nordic Naturals Announces its Back to School Essentials Product Promotion!

Disclosure: This is a sponsored Post by Nordic Naturals. I received free products in exchange for writing this post.

Literacy is extremely important to me. My son began reading at the age of four and I have a feeling that my daughter will be reading before that age. As a parent, I feel that it is one of the most important tools that I give my child. After all, how can you read about history and science and other subjects without first conquering reading? I cannot imagine what life must be like for people who can't read or read well. It must be a daily struggle.

I truly believe that kids who read succeed. Kids who read can have such a creative imagination and can feel like they can travel the world by simply picking up a book! Not to mention just everyday life. Menus, employment applications, street and store signs, and nutritional labels are all things that need to be read on a fairly regular basis. Not to mention Facebook. Not sure what I would do without Facebook. :)

This picture makes a good point about whether or not our children are reading also proves a point about something else that goes hand in hand with literacy - spelling. Notice that "According" is spelled "Acording"? Makes you wonder if the person who created it did not have good literacy skills themselves.

Nordic Naturals, the leading manufacturer of omega-3 supplements for kids and adults, announces its Back to School Essentials product promotion, which supports the U.S. Literacy Program for the non-profit Save the Children ( From July 1 through September 30, $1 will be donated for every bottle sold at retail stores of the following products: Baby’s DHA, Children’s DHA™, Omega-3.6.9.

  1. If I won, the prize would be for my son. He is one of the children who has struggles with reading because of a processing disorder. My daughter was reading at 4 years old, as was I. It has been so much harder for my son, and I believe in natural products. That is what I like about Nordic products - building blocks to natural solutions are important to my family and to me. I know I will buy the product, even if I win. If I have more than one because of that, I will give one away.
