Gummy vitamins can be filled with pork-based additives that are derived from pork skin, beef skin or beef bones. As with other sweets, these fillers can be stuck in your child’s teeth and contribute to cavities in the teeth. Children are likely to be drawn to the sweet taste and candy-like consistency of gummy vitamins and can be easy to overeat.
As a multivitamin powder, we have more vitamins and minerals than a gummy or stickpack which can include additional fillers to retain their shape and form. Our multivitamin is made with 20 essential vitamins and minerals and 14 fruits and vegetables with zero added sugar.
Chewable tablets may potentially be a choking hazard for your kids. Children under the age of 4 are at a high risk of choking while eating. Young children are still learning how to chew food properly, and they often swallow their food whole. Their small airways can become easily blocked by small round objects if not chewed properly.
Children may not like the taste of a chewable tablet, but mixing our powder with your child’s favorite food, your child can get the daily nutrients they need without noticing they are taking a vitamin!
