Kids Multi Vitamin Recommendation

I'm looking for a kids multivitamin. Preferably something that both my 3.5 and 1.5 year old can take. The ped wants my dd (1.5) on a multivitamin b/c she really is a horrible eater. We've tried some gummies with my ds and they are a hit or miss with him but I don't want gummies for my dd. I'm looking for organic, no artificial colors or preservatives, and as natural as possible. Any suggestions?

ETA: they don't have to be organic (just my preferance) but they do have to be dye and preservative free.

THANKS!

SmartyPants Vitamins is another one to try. They will mail you free samples so you can see if your LOs like them. I got the free samples and my DD loved them, but for us, the Nordic Berries end up being cheaper for us to buy.

I can't remember how I got it...maybe through their website/FB page or otherwise it was through a blog I guess.

Re: Kids Multi Vitamin Recommendation

Also, this is something else to chew on when deciding on a brand: http://www.non-toxickids.net/2009/01...-vitamins.html

Check out the comments. The blog author wrote to Nordic Naturals about their Nordic Berries, and the company says their tests show no traces of lead.

I was trying to figure this out also. The smartypants facebook page says to email customre service.

customerservice@smartypantscorp.com


It looks like they have an adult option too! I would love to take these over other prenatals since I can't find one with fish oil that is dye free!
