Are you looking for the healthiest children’s vitamins on the market today? This post (which I update monthly) will help you find the best one for your child! Note: If you’re looking for the best adult vitamins, go to this post.

Kids Vitamins can be confusing. There are so many questions: Is there a such thing as an “unhealthy” kids vitamin? Do you need a vitamin with iron? Which vitamins are the best? Do kids even need vitamins at all?  

A lot of these questions can be really overwhelming because there is so much information out there! So I did a bunch of research and found the healthiest kids vitamins out there today. This is your guide for the best multivitamins for kids: what to buy, what not to buy, and what to look out for!

First of all, do kids even need vitamins to begin with?

Most pediatricians will tell you that it’s not necessary for most healthy children who are growing normally (source). For kids who eat well and eat a variety of food, they can get all of the nutrients they need from whole foods. But many kids are very picky, or don’t eat a lot of food, or aren’t growing well, and that makes a lot of parents worried that they aren’t getting the nutrients they need! In those cases, I’d recommend talking to your pediatrician, and if they suggest giving your child a multivitamin then definitely do so. 

When buying a multivitamin, what should you look for? 

Kids multivitamins generally come in two groups: 1) With Iron and 2) Without Iron. You should buy a multivitamin that doesn’t exceed 100% daily value of most of the vitamins for your child’s age group – primarily Vitamins A, E and K (that will be indicated by the label on the back). The exception here is for Vitamin C and other water-soluble vitamins. Vitamin D is a fat soluble vitamin but is ok to have at more than 100% of the daily value because most people are deficient (including kids) and Vitamin D isn’t toxic unless it’s in exceptionally high doses which wouldn’t be in a daily vitamin. If the vitamin does have more than 100% of A, E and K then I would just give your child half the dose on the bottle.

So what should you buy? What’s the healthiest children’s vitamin out there? 

Luckily there are tons of options! Below is a list of my favorites: they all are made with natural ingredients, have no weird preservatives or any of the ingredients above added, and a few even derive the vitamins from organic food sources which I absolutely love because they are better absorbed by the body that way. Most of these will have a tiny bit of cane sugar or fructose added, but as long as it’s less than 4g per serving it’s not a huge issue. A few vitamins on the list (like Llama Naturals Organic Gummies) are 100% organic and free of ALL allergens as well!

Note: ALL of the vitamins I recommend below do NOT contain gelatin. They are all vegetarian friendly!

The Healthiest Children’s Multivitamins with Iron

The Healthiest Children’s Multivitamins without Iron

The Healthiest Children’s Liquid Vitamins Without Iron

  • ChildLife – it’s a little higher in sugar than I’d like, but you can start using it at 6 months of age (the other two options are for older kids)
  • Garden of Life for Toddlers – this vitamin is 100% organic, made from whole foods, has no sugar added, and you can use it starting at 1 year of age. I haven’t found a liquid vitamin with probiotics that has a cleaner ingredients list yet!
  • Premium Children’s – no sugar added and you can use it starting at 4 years of age
  • Tropical Oasis – sweetened with xylitol (just note that’s a sugar alcohol) and you can use it starting at 4 years of age

The Healthiest Children’s Iron Only Supplement

An iron-only supplement is a good option if you go with a multivitamin without iron, because it will add the iron missing from those vitamins back into your child’s diet. I generally recommend supplementing with iron if your child has been tested and is iron-deficient (otherwise supplementing with iron is not necessary for most kids). The two best iron-only supplements are:

  1. Nature’s Nutra because of relatively its super clean ingredients list.
  2. Gaia Herbs: Use for older children (or with pediatrician’s approval for babies) – it has the cleanest ingredients list I’ve found and is nonGMO!

The Healthiest Children’s Omega 3 Supplements

The primary Omega 3 supplement I’d recommend for kids is Nordic Naturals. They have an infant DHA supplement and a children’s DHA supplement – both of which are extremely pure, has no added preservatives or sugar, and are in liquid form so they can be added to just about anything! ChildLife Cod Liver Oil is also a good option for kids starting at 6 months of age!

The healthiest children’s vitamin D supplement

If you’re just looking for a Vitamin D supplement – e.g. in the winter, I love (and use) these Vitamin D Drops. There is literally nothing added to them (no flavors, colors, etc.). They are liquid and you only need one drop in your child’s milk per day. They’re marketed for infants, but you can use them for any age. Super easy, tasteless and pure. For two other great options, Raise them Well and UpSpring makes a pure vitamin D with only coconut oil added.

The Best Vitamin C For Kids

Many of you have asked me for my thoughts around Vitamin C supplements for kids. Here are my picks for the healthiest, best Vitamin C for kids. If you’re looking for a gummy, I recommend Olly Kids Immunity or WellVites. If you’re looking for a liquid vitamin, I like ChildLife Vitamin C. And if you’re looking for a gummy for older kids/adults, I like Mary Ruth’s Vitamin C. Lastly, if you’re looking for the best elderberry supplement for kids, I like Gaia Herbs Elderberry.

The Healthiest Probiotics Supplements for Kids

I love Garden of Life’s line of probiotics – they are shipped cold and their powdered kids probiotic can be added to your child’s drink (milk, water, etc.). They also have a kids’ chewable probiotic if you need an option that doesn’t require refrigeration (but it does have maltodextrin). If you’re looking for a liquid probiotic, I recommend this organic liquid probiotic from Go Healthy Natural. Four other probiotic options that I like are Llama Naturals, Klaire LabsPROKids and Dr. MK’s Natural Probiotic (the only caveat with Dr. MK’s is that it’s sweetened with sorbitol which is a sugar alcohol).

What ingredients should be avoided in kids vitamins?

It’s also important to look for the ingredients that are added to the tablet that aren’t vitamins. Ingredients like: Sorbitol, carrageenan, artificial colors and flavors (like Red #40), aspartame, sucralose, to name a few! You definitely don’t want to be dosing your child with these ingredients on a daily basis along with their multivitamin.

So let’s start with what not to buy: The answer here is most of the commercially available, leading brands of multivitamins. The biggest offender of which is Flinstones Chewable Vitamins. 

the best healthy vitamins for kids. healthy baby vitamins, best healthy vitamins for babies and toddlers

What’s crazy is that on the label, Flinstones calls out that they are “Pediatrician’s #1 Choice.” And most people do buy Flinstones vitamins! I even remember eating them when I was a kid. They tasted so good! It was like a treat every morning. And if you are giving your kids Flinstones vitamins right now, don’t feel bad! You are not alone, and thanks to all of the deceptive marketing out there, there’s no way you’d know that Flinstones isn’t the best choice for any child. Before doing all of this research I didn’t realize how problematic they were, and why it’s important to switch away from them.

The reason they are problematic, is because there are a ridiculous number of offensive ingredients in Flinstones Vitamins that truly, should not be there at all, and are not necessary. Take a look at two of their best sellers (I’ve highlighted in bold all of the ingredients to avoid):

#1 |Flinstones Chewable Vitamins with Iron: Sorbitol, Mannitol, Fructose, Sodium Ascorbate, Ferrous Fumarate, Silicon Dioxide, Carrageenan, Natural and Artificial Flavors, FD&C Red #40 Lake; Less Than 2% Of: Aspartame†, BetaCarotene, Cholecalciferol, Cyanocobalamin, D-Calcium Pantothenate, dl-Alpha-Tocopheryl Acetate, FD&C Blue #2 Lake, FD&C Yellow #6 Lake, Folic Acid, Magnesium Stearate, Niacinamide, Pyridoxine Hydrochloride, Riboflavin, Soy Lecithin, Thiamine Mononitrate, Vitamin A Acetate.

#2 | Flinstones Chewable Complete: Granulated Calcium Carbonate (Calcium Carbonate, Dextrose Monohydrate, Sugar, Maltodextrin, Microcrystalline Cellulose), Sorbitol, Sodium Ascorbate, Ferrous Fumarate, Natural and Artificial Flavoring, Pregelatinized Starch, dl-Alpha Tocopheryl Acetate; Less Than 2% Of: Beta-Carotene, Biotin, Calcium Pantothenate, Cholecalciferol, Cupric Oxide, Cyanocobalamin, FD&C Blue #2 Lake, FD&C Red #40 Lake, FD&C Yellow #6 Lake, Folic Acid, Gelatin, Magnesium Oxide, Magnesium Stearate, Mono- and Diglycerides, Niacinamide, Potassium Iodide, Pyridoxine Hydrochloride, Phytonadione, Riboflavin, Silicon Dioxide, Soy Lecithin, Sucralose, Thiamine Mononitrate, Vitamin A Acetate, Zinc Oxide.

Why are these ingredients bad? Let’s take them one by one:

  • Sorbitol and Mannitol are sugar alcohols. They have been known to cause digestive issues and discomfort in some people because they can’t be digested properly by the body.
  • Carrageenan is an emulsifier that thickens products, but it has been linked to high levels of inflammation in the body, digestive issues, etc.
  • Maltodextrin: this is an indicator that the food is highly processed. It’s used as a thickener, filler, or preservative in many processed foods, and it can cause spikes in your blood sugar because it has a high glycemic index.
  • Natural and Artificial Colors – Red #40, Blue #2, Yellow #6. What are these doing in a kids vitamin? These are so problematic and have been linked to all kinds of health problems including allergies, hyperactivity, learning impairment, irritability and aggressiveness.
  • Artificial flavors – also highly processed and unnecessary in a kids vitamin.
  • Aspartame and Sucralose – this is what diet sodas are sweetened with, and are highly controversial. Research hasn’t proven one way or the other whether they lead to long term health issues, but it has been proven that they cause an insulin-response by the body (because your body thinks you are eating sugar when you are not – source). If you wouldn’t give your child a diet coke, you shouldn’t give them a vitamin with this in it!
  • Mono- and Diglycerides is one of the most widely used emulsifers to keep oil and fat from separating. It’s just an indicator that the food is processed.
  • Oh, and gelatin. While this isn’t a harmful ingredient, it kind of sucks for any vegetarians or vegans out there who are giving their kids this vitamin without knowing that it’s not actually veggie-friendly.

Runner Ups / Children’s Supplements that are borderline

  • Solgar. This is one I’d get only if you can’t find any of the other ones on the list above, because while most of the ingredients are good, it does have carrageenan which – as I mentioned – it’s better to avoid.
  • YummiBears Organic Multivitamin (note: this vitamin does have cane sugar added – if you give your kids the full dose then it’s 6g sugar which is more than I would like in a vitamin)
  • Seeking Health (Note: The link may say women’s/mens but the label indicates this can be used for kids aged 4 and up. It’s also good for kids with MTHFR mutations. But I am waiting for a response from the company on the prop 65 warning on its label, so I’ve moved them down here for now!)
  • Natures Plus (another one that has a Prop 65 warning! This is what they have said regarding Prop 65: “Proposition 65 was passed in California in 1986 and requires the State to publish a list of chemicals known to cause cancer or birth defects or other reproductive harm. The list includes over 800 chemicals and compounds, including some which occur naturally in the environment and some common substances that are beneficial when used in appropriate doses. In order to comply with California Proposition 65, we print a warning on every invoice being shipped into the state of California. Some of the substances on the Proposition 65 list occur naturally in both the environment and the human body and also exist naturally in many of the foods we eat. Therefore, it can be expected that trace levels of the same chemicals would be detectible in virtually all herbal and natural dietary supplement products. If you would like further information on Proposition 65 please contact The Food and Drug Administration or The Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition, Outreach and Information Center, maintains a consumer information hotline at the following number: Toll-Free Information Line: (888) 723-3366.”
  • Nature’s Way Alive! The only downside to these is they are sweetened with sorbitol – which is a sugar alcohol that can be irritating to the digestive system. Other than that though, their ingredients look good!
  • Rainbow Light (this comes in powdered form). This was on my “top vitamins” list until August 2019, when news of a class action against Rainbow Light came out because their prenatal vitamins contained heavy metals (including high levels of lead). While this class action doesn’t apply to their children’s vitamins, I’d still be wary of buying from Rainbow Light until they have rigorous heavy metal testing in place for ALL of their vitamins.

I hope this helps you in navigating the world of kids’ vitamins!

  1. Plz guide me..if i want to give my child iron as a seperate supplemnt,omega 3 seperate and vitamin d as a seperate would i give her?all the 3 thing same day at same time?should i seek doc or i can give these to her on my own.

    • Hi Sehrish! You can certainly give your child all three supplements separately, and since all 3 are liquid supplements for kids, you could add them all to her favorite drink or meal at the same time – and just mix it in each day. But before you do, I’d recommend talking to your pediatrician first to see if your child needs an iron supplement. Omega 3s and Vitamin D are beneficial for all kids, but iron isn’t necessary unless your child has been diagnosed with low iron or anemia already. So I’d get that test done and talk to your pediatrician before going with an iron supplement. Hope that helps, let me know if you have any other questions!

  2. Hello! You have a wonderful website with such useful information – thank you so much! I would love to give my 3.5 year old son a multi vitamin perhaps with a probiotic however I cannot find a liquid form that is all natural all singing all dancing. I have tried a natural powered probiotic and an all natural tablet form vitamin all without luck. Could you please suggest one? Gummies are a no no. Thank you.

    • Hi! Thank you so much! Just to make sure I understand your question – you’re looking for a liquid vitamin that has a probiotic included in it? If so, this one from Bio Naturals is the best one I’ve found. It does have “natural flavors” in it – but the rest of the ingredients are pretty clean and I haven’t found one that has a cleaner ingredients list yet. Hope that helps, let me know if you have any other questions!

  3. Hi,
    Thank you for this great post. There is SO much information here. I’ve been trying to find the “right” vitamins for my son. Can you recommend a gummy multivitamin that has everything he needs as far as immunity/ multivitamin but also includes fiber/ digestive probiotics. He’s 10 and struggles with irregularity. Thank you so much!

  4. Hi!

    Thank you for this information! My son has been getting miagraines, especially when playing sports. I’m going to try supplements, but was wondering what you recommended for magnesium oxide for kiddos as well. And which of those in your list would you recommend if the kids need a methylated form?

    • Hi! So sorry to hear about your son’s migraines! That sounds so rough! Regarding magnesium oxide, I honestly have not found one that has clean ingredients and is made for kids. All of the magnesium oxide supplements I’ve found are for adults (and the kids versions are other forms of magnesium – not oxide). Sorry about that! If your son needs methylated B vitamins though, I’d recommend Thorne Research which is a great option! 🙂 Hope that helps!

  5. Thanks for all the amazing information. I am wanting to use a multivitamin and dha but having a hard time finding one with a good combo. My son is already on a probiotic so I don’t need that combined with it. If I look at the cod liver oil or other omega supplements it also has some vitamins in it and I am concerned about combining those.

  6. Hi..
    What is your opinion about “NovaFerrum Multivitamin with Iron Supplement for Infants” ? We use this one for our 2 year old. Now we want to try something else.

    • Hi! NovaFerrum isn’t as good as the iron supplement I recommend – Nature’s Nutra because it has more artificial ingredients added like “natural flavor” and “natural color” – which is basically just artificial flavor/color. So I’d go with Nature’s Nutra instead. Hope that helps!

  7. Oh my goodness! There’s so much info here my brain hurts trying to get thru it all. Lol
    My 6 year old daughter seems to get sick a lot with fevers / viral infections. It has been suggested maybe a multivitamin would help hee boost her immune sustem, especially since she’s a very picky eater. She would live on mac & cheese of I would let her. Can you please tell me which one one would be most beneficial? Thank you, Shanon

  8. Writing once again to thank you for your suggestion but found the ones a bit weaker with less than we needed. We have discovered shellfish allergy unlike peanuts egg soyor gluten harder to find excluded in the multivitamins out there.
    We were wondering if you and your vitamin investigators might uncover a great vitamin without shellfish because as parents we have as you the same desires to have the healthiest and safest for our kids too. I contacted naturelo but failed to get a response.with so many of our kids suffering from allergies, if they can make these other allergy free vitamins how about adding in a NO SHELLFISH …

  9. Thanks for the post. I contacted seeking health about the prop 65 warning and they said it is because of the vitamins that come from the earth. This confuses me a but because it seems like it is synthetic and not a whole food vitamin? And why do they have when comparable brands dont like Thorne, pure ecaps, Klaire etc. Are they just being proactive and they all do or should they be avoided because they have a warning lead? I really like what is in them more than the others but this concerns me. Thanks!

    • Hi Laura! After doing some more research on Prop 65 this is what I’ve found: “The State of California maintains a list of Prop 65 chemicals. The list currently contains over 800 chemicals and can be found at Unfortunately, Prop 65 does not make a distinction between substances that are man-made and those that are naturally found in the environment (like in soil and crops). For example, lead is on the Prop 65 list, even though it is a naturally occurring element in products like produce and cocoa. Many commonly used ingredients, including cocoa, calcium, and magnesium, can contain naturally occurring levels of Prop 65-listed chemicals. For example, lead and other such metals, which are found in soil, water, air, and rocks, are naturally and commonly present in foods and food ingredients. Warnings are not required if a business can prove that exposure does not exceed certain low threshold limits. These limits can be nearly impossible to prove, particularly when a Prop 65 material is naturally occurring and variable.” So my guess is that Seeking Health has vitamins on this list that exceed those low thresholds. And the other vitamins on this list don’t exceed the thresholds. Also for reference, here are the thresholds for Prop 65:
      ** For carcinogens, the threshold is called the No Significant Risk Level (NSRL), which is the level of exposure that would result in no more than one excess case of cancer in 100,000 individuals exposed to the chemical every day for 70 years. In other words, a person exposed to the chemical at the NSRL for 70 years would not have more than a one in 100,000 chance of developing cancer as a result of that exposure.
      ** For reproductive toxicants, the No Observable Effect Level (NOEL) is determined by identifying the highest level of exposure that has been shown to pose no harm to humans or laboratory animals and dividing the NOEL by 1,000. A warning is required for exposures that exceed 1/1000th of the NOEL. In other words, California sets a level that is 1,000 times lower than the level of exposure that has been shown to have no observable effect on humans or animals.
      I hope that helps clarify things!

  10. The latest few comments mention Naturelo vitamins which many find to be a TOP choice. one of these comments stated that they were free of shellfish as well as other allergies.. I rechecked and found that Naturelo IS NOT to my knowledge fish or shellfish free..if you could check on this, it could help the many of us that have the shellfish allergy…and where we can find a good shellfish free multivitamin.

    • Hi Susan! I actually do recommend one of these and it’s on my list in my blog post, but the rest would be more like “runner ups” to my current list — the main reasons being the use of “natural flavors” which are equivalent to artificial flavoring, and certain sweeteners or additives on the ingredients list. I’ll go through them one by one so you can see what I mean:
      Naturelo isn’t bad but they have “natural flavors” on their ingredients list which is basically artificial flavors. The rest of their ingredients look ok though!
      Xtend-Life also looks pretty good but they have maltodextrin on their ingredients list which I don’t love.
      Dr. Mercola has mannitol (sugar alcohol that can disrupt digestion) and “natural flavors” = artificial flavors added. The rest of the ingredients look good though.
      Garden of Life I already recommend!
      Solgar is on my “runners up” list because it has Carrageenan so I wouldn’t buy that if you can get one of the other ones on my list.
      Trace Minerals has 4 different types of “natural flavor” added, which again – is basically the same thing as artificial flavor.
      Carlson Labs has maltodextrin and “natural flavors”
      Klaire Labs also has maltodextrin and “natural flavors”
      Oxylent has “natural flavors” and processed stevia (not organic stevia leaf extract) added
      Usanimals have “natural flavors”, soy lecithin and “stevia” – not organic stevia leaf extract which I don’t love.
      Hope this helps! Let me know if you have any other questions!

  11. Hi, this is such a great article. Is there a children’s mulit that is just a regular swallow tablet or capsule? My picky 10yr old won’t eat the chewables or gummies. She does take medication on a daily basis and has no issue with swallowing pills. Thanks for the help and I look forward to exploring your site.

  12. Hi Anjali, what do you think of Vitaminfriends Boost Appetite? My two year old son is low in iron and has lost most of his appetite.

    • Hi Cresencia! The ingredients in that supplement look ok to me! The only “on the fence” ingredient is the “natural flavors” it has, which most likely is artificial flavors, but everything else looks great. But I don’t know much about how effective it is. Has your pediatrician voiced a concern about your son’s weight? The reason I ask is that it’s very common for toddlers to start eating a little bit less because they’re usually more interested in playing. But if your son is losing weight or underweight I understand the need to boost his appetite. Have you also considered an iron supplement for his low iron? If you need one, I really like this one from Nature’s Nutra. Hope that helps, let me know if you have any other questions!

  13. Another option I like is Naturelo Children’s multivitamin. It is a chewable, but they also offer a whole food vitamin in gummy form. I use the same brand for my vitamins and supplements as well. They’re non-gmo, contain no gluten, dairy, eggs, shell fish, soy, artificial flavorings or preservatives. They’re also vegetarian and vegan friendly.

    • Hi Chance! Naturelo is a good brand and I love their adult vitamins, but their kids vitamins have “natural mixed berry flavor” added which is basically artificial flavoring. But other than that the rest of their ingredients look good!

  14. Hello. I truly have read through this post, the comments and links. I am so lost. Especially with the tons of comments. I have spent almost a week and still have no vitamins. LOL Can you please help me?
    Daughter is 11 years old. Started menses and Bone Cancer survivor. She needs extra vitamin D. She also has ADHD so would like fish oil and magnesium.
    I am leaning towards smarty pants multi but is there something that is a multivitamin with magnesium, probiotics, vitamin D3 (Smarty pants just shows vit D) and omega 3’s instead of taking multiple things. Also, no iron test so don’t know about that. Please, Please give me your recommendation. Also, can’t I just by the adult but modify the dose. ( Maybe I can share) PS. She does not eat a rounded diet. Thanks for all you do!!

    • Hi Savannah! Aw no prob at all!! Happy to help 🙂 First of all can I just say that your daughter sounds amazing!! I can’t imagine what you both have gone through with her cancer and everything else that goes along with it – you are both so strong! Regarding adult vitamins – the general recommendation is to wait until age 12 to give adult vitamins to kids — so your daughter is almost there. In a year, I bet you could just share a women’s multivitamin but until then you should probably stick to kids vitamins for her. Regarding iron, I’d get her tested before giving her an iron supplement. You can use this Smarty Pants Multivitamin which has Vitamin D, Omega3s and Probiotics added – so it’s all in one! Hope that helps, let me know if you have any other questions!

  15. Hi,

    I am looking for a liquid or powder form multivitamin for my 18month daughter. I prefer no iron.
    I came across Mega Foods Kids Daily Multivitamin Booster but it says 5years+
    Is this safe for her age range?

    Are there any multivitamins you would recommend other than Zarbees?


    • Hi Shaniqua! If Mega Foods says for ages 5+ it’s probably not a good idea to give it to your 18 month old! Instead, I’d recommend Children’s Advanced – it’s a liquid vitamin, it has no iron, and it’s for kids aged 1 and up. Hope that helps!

      • You are a life saver!
        Thank you so much for responding. This has been an overwhelming process.

        Lastly, I’m hesitant about giving her iron because I don’t know how much is she supposed to have per day. I’d rather control the iron myself being that there are some vitamins with too much iron in the ingredients (in my opinion)

        What is the average amount for an 18month old and which would you recommend (again in liquid or powder form)

      • No problem at all! Regarding iron – I wouldn’t supplement her with iron unless she is actually anemic. So the first step there is to get her iron levels tested at her pediatrician’s office — and if you need an iron supplement after that, let me know and I can recommend one. And for now, the Children’s Advanced multivitamin should be fine because it doesn’t contain iron so you don’t have to worry about that. Hope that helps, let me know if you have any other questions!

  16. Are any of the gummy’s real soft and easy to chew? My daughter has sensory issues and low oral muscle tone and if the gummy is too tough then she will get either too tired chewing or get gagged and throw up. Most the gummy’s we have tried are really tough for her to chew.

    • Hi Jon! Honestly, I’m just not sure as I haven’t tried out all of the gummy vitamins listed myself (and my kids don’t like gummy vitamins, they prefer regular chewables). My suggestion would be to read through some of the reviews of the vitamins to see if any are highlighted as particularly tough to chew and use that to narrow down the list!

      • Ok, I’ll try to battle through them and see if anyone mentions if they are tough or not. Are the chewable smile your kids like easy to chew? I’m not dead set on gummies, just trying to figure out anything to help her progress until she can chew tougher things. Thank you for responding and all you do.

      • Hi Jon! My kids don’t have any trouble with the chewables – they kind of just crumble in their mouth once they start chewing them. I hope that helps and hope your daughter is able to chew one of the vitamins on this list! 🙂

    • Hi Sarah! I wouldn’t recommend either. Airborne has artificial flavors and sucralose (which is splenda, fake sugar) added; and Emergen-C has maltodextrin and Rebaudioside A – which is marketed as stevia extract but is actually a highly processed form of non-organic stevia that I wouldn’t recommend – added. One of the vitamins on this list would be a much better option!

  17. Hi I was wondering if you could recommend a really good immune system vitamin C gummie for children please? I’m sorry if it’s in the comments there are so many to get through I will never make it through them all 🙂

  18. Hi Anjali,
    Have you heard back from Nature’s Plus regarding the Prop 65 warning? They seem to be the only sugar free non-gummy vitamins I can find for my 3 year old son.
    Are there other alternatives you would recommend? He’s also allergic to tree nuts and sesame seeds.

    • Hi Geselle! Unfortunately I haven’t! For an alternative, I’d recommend trying Vitamin Friends – which is a gummy vitamin that is also allergen free. Hope that helps!
