Dr. Jack Watkins, Vice President of Ives Formulation Co., developed the first phytonutrient product for children in the form of the Vegi Bear®. "Through a revolutionary process, we flash dry whole fruits and vegetables, then extract the vitamins, minerals and enzymes that are so useful for good nutrition," said Dr. Watkins.
