Giving your kids vitamins should be a no-brainer. They have the nutrition their little bodies need to fill any gaps missing in their diets. But vitamins, especially kid’s vitamins, aren’t always what they seem. And sometimes they taste so bad, no amount of bribery can convince your kids to eat them. In either case, you are left wondering why you even bother giving them to them.
Why do kids need a vitamin supplement?
Did you know that active children need at least 1-1/2 cups of fruit and 2-3 cups of vegetables each day*? It’s hard for me to get that much sometimes and I like fruits and vegetables, so I can guarantee that most days my kids don’t quite meet these recommendations. But it’s important to me, as I’m sure it is for most moms, that my kids get the needed vitamins in their diet. It’s my job to give them the best start possible! A vitamin supplement helps fill the gaps.
What ingredients don’t you want in a kid’s vitamin?
Over the years, I’ve done my research on kids vitamins, especially because my daughter has some sensitivities that made it necessary to read each and every label on the products I buy.
How do you get your kids to take their vitamins?
Some kid’s vitamins just taste terrible. I know from experience because every time my kids complain about the taste of a particular brand, I try them, and most of the time I agree with them. The first thing you have to do is find a kid’s vitamin that tastes good. That is half the battle. I found that my kids are more likely to take their vitamins without complaining when they understand why they should take them. In my house, we talk about the different vitamins found in food, and in their supplements and discuss the benefits of each one and how it relates to their lives.

Rhino™ Gummy Multivitamins taste great too. I know. I had tried them before I gave them to my daughter. She doesn’t complain about taking her vitamins anymore!
