If your toddler takes vitamins what does he/she think of them?

My 1 1/2 year old is taking them to get more vitamin D. He loves them. He begs for them every day and sometimes he wants more than one a day. If your little one takes vitamins what do they think of them?

  • My boys think they are a treat. We give them the Flinstones Gummies and they ask for them. My 2 year old calls them "num-nums"... I'm happy they take them without a problem but I am careful to keep them put up because they think they are candy and want more than allowed per day.

  • I used to give my daughter a daily vitamin, she loved it. But her digestive track ,... not so much. So low and behold we have to stay away from them for right now.

  • A friend of ours gave us some Fish Oil vitamins and some natural fruit based ones by Dr Sears because her son didn't like them. We give them to our daughter from time to time because she thinks they're a delicious treat, but she doesn't need them because she loves fish, avocado, fruit, etc...

  • My son is a horrible eater, so that's why I give him vitamins. He doesn't care for gummy snacks, so I got him an off-brand of Flintstones. He loves them! He begs for them like candy. We have to be careful to ask each other if we've fed him vitamins already before we give him one.

  • We give our daughter vitamins. Some days I'm the "forgetful" one and she's the one that has to remind me!!! She likes any vitamins --- either the hard, chewable ones or the gummy ones.
