As winter creeps around a lot of us start thinking about ways we can protect our family, from wrapping them up warmly in coats and scarves, to supporting their immune systems.

In the hot seat this month and straight from Mother&Baby's Editor's shopping basket, Stephanie Anthony shares her pick of Sambucol’s range of family immune health vitamins available on Amazon.co.uk.

About Sambucol

Sambucol is the original black elderberry brand, introduced 30 years ago by a leading scientist who discovered the antioxidant power of black elderberries. Since then, Sambucol has evolved combining the powerful little berry with even more supercharged immune ingredients such as *vitamin C and vitamin D in a variety of delicious formats suitable for the whole family.

The Baby Range

Sambucol Baby gives a helping hand in ensuring your baby develops a healthy and strong immune system. The baby-friendly formulations include the natural goodness of Black Elderberries plus vitamin C, with the Baby Powder also including Vitamin D, as the perfect way to care for their immune system throughout those crucial early years of a baby’s development.

The Baby collection includes two easy-to-use formats:

  • **Sambucol Baby Drops 6+**months

The Baby Drops are a tasty berry flavour, and each tincture bottle comes with a baby dropper which can be easily dispensed directly into your baby’s mouth or mixed in with cold/lukewarm water, milk, juice or even blended into your baby’s food.
