Quality chewables for "special" kids
by Ivy S.
When my grandson turned four, I wanted to get him some chewable vitamins that he could take each day, to replace the liquid baby vitamins he and his little sister had been on since infancy. I first bought him the Multi Gummies from Puritan's Pride, and although they were high quality and he loved them, he's so young that he tended to think of them as 'candy" which isn't really a good idea. It's fine if they taste like candy, but not in general a safe idea for very small children. I then switched him to these chewables, also from Puritan's Pride, explained what they were, and he just loves them! He understands now that they are his very own "special medsum", his word for "medicine", and NOT candy. He's taken the vitamins daily for over a year now, thinks they make him 'special", and he even brags to his friends about how healthy he is now. As his Grammy, I myself feel much more confident about his overall health and believe he has a higher immune system function because of the addition of this supplement designed just for kids.
These particular chewables are especially great because they contain no preservatives or artificial colors nor artificial flavors. The flavors themselves are derived from carob in the standard formula, and from real fruits in the formula without iron. Both seem to be to his liking, so either is a good choice dependent upon the child's needs, and both are still part of the fine quality children's vitamin line from Puritan's Pride. The berry flavored iron free formula gets it's sweet tart flavor from raspberry, apricot, grape, pear, currant, peaches and dates. The standard chews are a carob based flavor, if one prefers them instead. My grandson just loves these fruity ones best and remembers himself, without reminders, to take his vitamin every day, with adult supervision, of course.
This one, the Children's Chewable Animal Chews, has a full range of the Recommended Daily Requirement of vitamins A through K, along with folic acid, and more than fourteen necessary minerals. The brand has also included a fine blend of vegetables and grains, a sneaky but valuable hidden addition quite unknown to the child, important for their rich anti-oxidant benefits.
I drew my grandson a poster showing a small child and glued a cut-out of his face on to it above the neck of the figure. Since he knew his ABC's I let him help me write in the vitamins contained in the Puritan's Pride Chewables that were good for each body part right onto the poster, such as an "A" over the eyes, denoting Vitamin A's benefits to the vision. At the bottom we drew pictures of different foods that contain all the vitamins in the chew tablets as well. I think his taking the chewable children's supplement has aided in teaching him how to eat better foods, take better care of his body with vitamins and minerals, and helped us both become closer, with a common interest. He loves visiting me overnight and getting to add to the chart or talk about it, but always remembers, most of all, to bring along his "special medsum", which is of course these great little chewable vitamins from Puritan's Pride.
My grandson knowGreat tasting!
My son loves these vitamins. I used to have to fight him to get him to take his vitamins, but ever since I started using them three years ago, he even reminds me that he needs to take them. They have a very affordable price too. Especially when Puritan's Pride runs one of their great specials.Pretty good for it's price

These vitamins have become one of my children's standard in brands. The first time I bought these was less than a year ago as a substitute for my child's usual vitamins. Since the shapes are fun, I was pleased with their reactions due to the fact that they are brutally honest about what they don't like. They said there's hardly any after-taste and the price agrees with my wallet. These are definitely a good name brand stand in.We had these when *we* were kids!
That's true... I had Puritan Pride animal vitamins when I was a little one!
When my boss' little one turned three, she mentioned that she was looking for a children's vitamin and these are what I suggested to her. Her son has been taking them for about a year now and she's very pleased with them. He's a very picky eater -- even turning away candy at times -- but she says she has no problem getting him to take his vitamin.Good for my kids
My kids are definitely fans of these things. I picked some up a few weeks ago and my kids have been chewing them every morning. I was afraid of the taste but they think its candy so it can't be that bad.
