Cecon (ascorbic acid): A better source for your child would be from fruits and vegetables rather than cecon (ascorbic acid)

Family Medicine 37 years experience
Vitamin C: is better to get from a good balanced diet with fruit and vegetables. If you have a good balanced diet you do not need vitamins.
Dr. Deborah Ungerleider
Pediatrics 36 years experience
Would not recommend.: Your 2 year old should not need to take a supplemental Vitamin C tablet. Fruits and vegetables are a much better source.

No: According to their dosing information, it is recommended for a child 4-6 years of age to receive 1 tablet daily. It is not recommended below 4 years of age.
