A man Known as Spike has taken to social media to warn others about Robinson’s fruit shoots’
“Warning to all parents.
My son has always been a fan of Robinson’s fruitshoots.
Recently they have rebranded changing from the classic purple bottle with blue lid to the new purple with green lid.
Since the old one is no longer available we obviously purchased the new one for my son.
Ever since then my son has been getting sent bouts of nausea and being sick. It’s also put him off his food as a result of this.
Please be careful. They have changed some of their ingredients and the following apply:
What can too much niacin do to you?
Reactions range from flushing, itching, nervousness and headaches to intestinal cramps, nausea, and diarrhea. High doses of niacin can cause liver toxicity; doses in excess of 3 grams a day should be used only under careful medical supervision (for example, in the treatment of high cholesterol).
Are there side effects to taking biotin?
Symptoms of biotin deficiency include hair loss, dry skin, a scaly rash around the eyes or mouth, dry eyes, fatigue, and depression. Many people take biotin supplements in hopes of treating hair loss, cradle cap in infants, and brittle nails.
Please monitor your children and be aware. My son will no longer be drinking fruitshoots anymore as a result of this”.
Many others commented on the post and said that their children have also had a bad reaction to the seemingly harmless child friendly drink, however others stated that any person or child can have reactions to anything and that some people are just extra sensitive and it won’t happen to everyone just a small miniority.
