What kind of vitamins do your children take??

My 9 year old takes the Flinstones vitamins.

My 13 year old takes the One A Day for Her _ (for teens).  Found these yesterday in the drugstore, never even knew they made vitamins for teens!

  • Absolutely none because they eat a varied diet and don't need them. There is no way I'm going to feed my child unnecessary chemicals.

  • There is something about Flintstones that isn't good. Ugh, but I can't recall what ingredient is in them that isn't good. You might google it. Mine take gummy c, gummy calcium and vitamin d.

    Now I know some naturopathic people can get very fussy about this stuff but....I heard this about Flintstones from a friend who is an internal medicine doctor so not from the internet. He brought it up to me and I paid no attention cause I wasn't using that brand. Anyway, maybe research or ask your own ped. : )
