The end.

*waits for all the "multivitamins are a government conspiracy, blah, blah, blah" responses

*eta even if your kids eat a perfectly balanced diet what's the harm in adding in a daily vitamin? The fact is that only on cm do the majority of kids eat so awesome. Most kids do not. Most kids are picky. Most parents lack the knowledge to properly feed their children perfectly nutritionally balanced diets.
Also I may have been a tad judgy they first time around. I work for a pediatrician's office and one of the patients that came in today absolutely refuses to fees her kids anything but pizza, nuggets, fries, soda, and hot dogs. Her kids are severely unhealthy. She also refuses to take dr advice and give her kids a daily vitamin...poor parenting.

Depends on what kind you give them. Be careful!

I give my kids juice plus.

AND...there are a lot of vitamins that are terrible for you.

If the child isn't picky and has a well balanced diet there is no need.

If your kid has normal eating habits (over the course of say, a week or so, since we all know kids eat weird), they aren't needed.  None of my kids have ever had vitamins, they're grown/nearly grown, no health problems at all, tall, slm, and athletic.

I've never given my kids any vitamins, they eat a healthy and balanced diet, they don't need extra vitamins.

Why would I give them a multi vitamin when food is much more effective.
