have you tried either of these vitamins for your little one?

i am looking for a new gummy vitamin for my little guy. he currently takes the flinestones one...but i would like something that uses natural flavors and colors. i'm looking at either the lil critters gummy multivitamin, or the trader joe's version. i heard that some vitamins taste nasty (he likes the flinestone one just fine)... just wanted to know if you had experience with either of these brands... do your kids like em?

  • We used to use the lil critters ones. He took them just fine, but then my husband went shopping once and couldn't find them, so he got a different brand that was actually more complete as far as what it provided, so we switched.

  • Honestly you won't know until/unless you try them. Every kid has different tastes....

    I don't have experience with them...our pediatrician says as long as the kids get a pretty balanced diet, they don't need them.

  • I use Koala Pals from Melaleuca. They are committed to safety and solubility.

  • I've always been told by our Doctors that vitamins are not neccessary if you feed your children a balanced diet. Our children are 6 and 9 and totally healthy.

  • We use Gummivites. They were recommended by our pediatrician, and he gives them to his son.
