Do you take vitamins?

My SO's mom is always telling us that we should all take a daily vitamin. She has even gone as far as buying vitamins for the kids and daily women/men vitamins for my SO and me. It was actually our Christmas present!

Do you take vitamins? Do you give them to your kids? What kind do you take?

  • The only thing I take is a Vitamin D supplement and that is prescribed because my levels are very low. My kids take the target brand (chewable) because I've read that the gummies are bad for the teeth.

  • I take them. So does my DH and DD. Really though it is best to get nutrients from fresh fruits and vegetables, etc.

  • yes. every single day, they are so important and i make sure hubby takes them too. it is absolutely impossible to get the amount of vitamins you need from diet alone, and this is coming from a pre med student (yes me). my 8 month old is obviously too young. if you truly want to be healthy you need to take a daily vitamin. i take the Be Wholesome vitamins from GNC and hubby takes adult gummys

  • I still take a prenatal since I'm breastfeeding. My husband takes a daily vitamin and so does our 4 year old (he has to have the liquid one put into his juice). Our 8 month old doesn't but she gets everything she needs from me right now!

  • I do now, but only because I am pregnant if I weren't pregnant then I wouldn't be taken a vitamin. My kids don't either although I was thinking about getting them on some sort of vitamin. I was going to by some last week, but I forgot.
