Why is he on it ?: You get the most focused answer on this site if you provide background information for your question. Why is the kid on this to begin with ? By age 19 mo most kids have a diverse diet and don't have any need for the vitamin additives in a formula because they get the nutrients elsewhere. If the kid has a growth issue or some other reason for specialty feeds you should clear this with his doc.
