What Vitamins Do Your Kids Take?
The past weekend at my girlfriend getaway one of the topics was if you give your children a multivitamin. I have several friends who swear by the juice plus chewable vitamins. My toddlers have always been pretty good eaters and my pediatrician has never suggested it, so I hadn't considered it until now. I found this article from the Mayo Clinic helpful.
I also liked this one from WebMD that covers the foods groups your child should be eating. I never have much trouble getting my kids to eat fruits, protein and whole grains. Veggies can sometimes be a problem, so I fill sneak them in with homemade broccoli applesauce, carrot applesauce, salads, and green smoothies with spinach, flax seed and wheat germ.
Do you children take a multivitamin and if so what kind?
