Did you know we are a Family owned and operated business? This is the IronKids story!
Stuart has 3 young daughters and he's passionate about putting healthier choices on stores shelves for his girls. He created IronKids vitamins in 2005 and they are now sold nationwide and in hundreds of stores in the US. It didn't take long for parents to start asking why there wasn't all natural Gummy Vitamins for adults so in May 2011 he launched Adult Essentials. Stuart is the creative, the science, the business, and the health behind IronKids & Adult Essentials. He likes to cycle. Deborah is Stuart's wife of 12 years and together they have 3 daughters. She is the voice behind the websites, the writer on the IronKids Blog, the messenger of all tweets, and the source of all the Facebook updates for IronKids & Adult Essentials. She likes to run. They have three IronKids product testers (can you find all three kids in this photo?) who like to run, to climb (hint!), to ski, to swim, to dance and to skate.
We don't just talk about being healthy and active, we ARE healthy and active! photo genious Justin Van Leeuwen
