Childrens Vitamins

I have a 9 yr. old a 6 yr. old and a soon to be 3 yr old, and I want to get them a multi vitamin that will give them everything they need. What vitamins do you all give your kids? Do you give them several types or just a multi vitamin?

  • I give my girls ages 9,7, and almost 6 year old what ever is one sale or a coupon for. Anything from flintstones, to hannah montana, princess, toy story. and they seem to like them all and do fine with them. Once in awhile I even buy the ensure drinks.

  • I give mine just a general kids multi-vitamin about every other day.
    Also, I just wanted to point out on the regular chewables VS. the gummies, with most brands of the gummies, you have to give them 2 to equal the RDA, so if money is a concern, the reg. chewables are more cost-effective. My kids don't mind them, so that's what I buy.

  • we give food based vitamins. a multi, a green, and a probiotic.
    we don't always give them. i really try to provide them with what they need through their diet.
    kids will be kids, so personally the greens is my favorite. we give the kids fish oil too.

  • I give my kids Juice Plus. It's whole-food based nutrition vs synthetic vitamins. My entire family takes Juice Plus, some of us take the capsules, others love the soft-chew gummies. None of us have had a cold in over a year and allergies have improved. I became a Rep with Juice Plus because I just can't stop raving about it. Juice Plus has changed our lives.
