I just learned how bad polysorbate 80 is. I want to discontinue my 21 month old's vitamin ( tri vi sol). What are the important vitamins a child needs at this stage? What is a healthy alternative vitamin? Thanks for your time and dedication to this topic!

Most children's vitamins are very low potency and made of synthetic vitamins. Low quality and relatively worthless.

I recommend a few specific supplements. Vitamin D3 drops 2000 IU, and fish oil that contains at least 400 mg DHA. Probiotics are also a good idea.

If you want to give a multi I recommend IntraKid by DruckerLabs, available through Amazon or other online suppliers.
