  • I was going to say either make her a smoothie and put in the crushed vitamin, or get her the gummy candy ones that are like fruit snacks.

  • You can crush it, or my mom always gave my brother a pill a in spoon of icecream. It could be her nightly treat. I disagree with the mom who said to tell your daughter that they are candy. You should never tell kids medicine/vitamins are candy. They could overdose because there is not a limit to how much candy you are allowed to eat. I explained the difference to my children at an early age, and kept reminding them. I never had to call poison control or had an accident of any sort.

  • My 2 yo won't eat them either. So I put one in his sippy cup and let it dissolve. Works like a charm!
