Awhile back, Jersey Baby asked me what my thoughts were on vitamins. Hadn't really given vitamins that much thought, to be honest, until now...
Is it me or are there only are two options if you decide to go for kiddie vitamins?
A. Give them the traditional ones that give a basic balance of most important nutrients, but have artificial color and sweeteners
B. Give them natural vitamins, with large RDAs (recommended daily allowances) of certain components, far above 100%.
I am hoping that I have just somehow overlooked mystery option C that is a natural vitamin with basic levels of vitamins?
Also, what do you all think about gummy vitamins? I am somewhat weary of the gummy vitamins, thinking that if I accidentally leave them on the counter in my early morning haze, R and G will eat the whole jar, a la gummy bears. (Oh, you cannot appease me by telling me they have child safety lids...R once shimmied his hand through a child cabinet "lock," only to break the child safety seal on some ACT Kid's mouth rinse and drink 1/3 of the bottle.)
I am all ears...
