Is it ok to give 28 months old child vitamins as a supplement as she is been avoiding foods lately?

Picky eater: An age appropriate multivitamin is fine. However, I find a lot of these children are drinking too much. Limit milk to 16oz/day, fresh fruit, instead of juice, she will be hungrier. No walking around the house with a cup, as her 'best friend'! It gives her a constant feeling of fullness. Offer food, at meals and snacks, before beverages. Also, see your ped to make sure she's growing right. ...Read more

Does giving too much vitamins and protein filled foods to a child add on weight later as an adult?

Does giving too much vitamins and protein filled foods to a child add on weight later as an adult?

Depends: Is best to get vitamins directly from a healthy diet with colorful salads, fruits and vegetables. Adding vitamins to food can be tricky - e.g., Folic Acid can not be converted to the usable form of folate (folic acid) in a percentage of the population. The build-up of unused Folic Acid can have detrimental health effects. If protein filled is adding something i would stay away from excess processing. ...Read more

My 6 year old child is a picky eater. What kind of vitamins can I give her to make up for nutrients she's not taking in?

My 6 year old child is a picky eater. What kind of vitamins can I give her to make up for nutrients she's not taking in?

Cheap ones: Kids are likely to become iron and vitamin d deficient nowadays (lifestyles as much as "picky eating"). Different things taste different to people. An inexpensive drugstore-chain vitamin-and-mineral supplement with sufficient levels of both should cover junior and prevent turning mealtime (which should be joyful) into a time that makes being a parent and a kid even more difficult. Good luck. ...Read more
