My daughter enjoys eating when it comes to food she would eat a large amount but she can be a picky eater. There was a time where she treats vegetable as an enemy. I had to encourage Char to take just one bite or bribe her with a treat. It was tough. She didn’t want to drink water as well. After getting her involved with soccer, she was better with drinking water. If my daughter is a picky eater, was she getting enough nutrient? Should toddler take multi-vitamin?
Reason to Give Your Toddler Vitamin
If the toddler has a restricted diet like an allergy or is a picky eater, it would be beneficial to the child. If the child has a dairy allergy and can’t drink milk would lack Calcium, a multi-vitamin is the only way to ensure the child has all the necessary vitamins.
What to Consider for a Multi-vitamin
-a multi-vitamin for the right age group (toddler)
-the correct dose of the vitamin not extra because it is dangerous
-kids should know the gummy vitamin is not a candy
-multi-vitamin should not replace nutrient from food
Important Vitamin and Minerals
Vitamin A – energy production, metabolism, healthy circulation, and nervous system
