kidhandAccording to some medical experts, kids should get their vitamins from a balanced, healthy diet that includes:

  • Milk and dairy products
  • Plenty of fruits and vegetables
  • Protein including chicken, fish, meat and eggs
  • Whole grains

If you feel a vitamin is right for your child – due to excessive activity or as a dietary substitute:

  • Avoid mega-vitamins and too much iron than can be bad for kids
  • Pick a vitamin designed for children
  • Opt for a vitamin that doesn’t provide more than 100% of the recommended daily amount of each vitamin/mineral
