My oldest started preschool for a few hours a day several months ago. Since then its been one cold after another running through our family. So that has me thinking- what vitamins and other supplements do you give your child? And what are some good brands?
My kids are 5yrs, 2.5yrs, and 6m
Thinking of getting the Rainbow Light kids multistars with probiotics for my oldest two. Or maybe the Lil Critters brand? They seem to have good reviews. Thoughts?

Re: Vitamins and supplements for kids?

I use what my insurance pays for for my kids. Been working as neither have been sick *knock on wood* all year. They get it at night before bed and look forward to it. My 9 month old gets breastmilk. Once he weans I will do what our insurance covers for lil guys.

I give my kids a multivitamin, I've used several different brands, they prefer gummy vitamins. I also give them a probiotic, I use Nature's way brand.

I am lucky they cover one type. It may not be a "good" one but it is one.

The dietician recommended Flintstones complete or something with the same vitamin content
