How do you choose a multivitamin for your child?
Choosing the right multivitamin for your child should be based on guidance from your pediatrician, but factors to consider include the key nutrients included, third-party testing, flavors, supplement format and price.
Do kids really need supplements?
The AAP does not recommend vitamin supplementation over the RDA for kids receiving a normal, healthy diet.
What age should children start taking a multivitamin?
As stated above, children receiving a healthy and complete diet should not need a multivitamin. However, if your child is at risk of a nutrient deficiency, speak with your pediatrician.
