Vitamins for Toddlers?

When is it ok to start giving your child a multi-vitamin? I have 15 month old twin boys and I would like to give them a multi-vitamin. Their Peditrician said that it was ok. How do I know what kind to give them? Advice is needed.

  • Flintstone makes one that is called My First Flintstone. They are specifically for toddlers. I give my 2 year old these. He loves them. They have less of the vitamins, the right amount for their little bodies.

  • Yep, any children's chewable will do. Just be sure to read the label. Some (like Centrum) will need to be cut in half for toddlers.

    And I'll have to take a look for the First Flintstones. Thanks MissAlisabeth!

  • I buy the generic ones at Wal*Mart... They are the same things as the Flinstones but an off brand... I get my kids the gummy ones!

  • Yes, the regular flintstones are suppose to be cut in half for toddlers. The First Flintstones are made just for toddlers, so no cutting!

  • Make sure you don't give your kids vits with artificial coloring and things like that. Look up all natural, organic ones online. ;)
