What BRAND NAMEs would you recommend for supplements and probiotics for my children?  Ages, 2, 4, 6, 8, 11, 14, 17?  Thank you.  I'd like to buy online.  thank you.

It looks like your post might have been missed, so I wanted to bump it up for attention. :bump: Anyone have a recommendation to share?

What are you wanting these supplements for? Each one of your children will likely have different nutritional needs.

We use vit D3 and probiotics from OrthoMolecular - my husband is a chiropractor so we get them for cheaper. But i subscribe to a blog and she had a nice comprehensive list of things for cold and flu remedies and preventions that I thought i would share even though this isn't what you are asking http://wellnessmama.com/1499/natural-remedies-for-illness/ (i don't know if the link will work:) 

I also am planning on making these gummie vitamins as soon as my elderberries come in the mail. the person who made them also put probiotics in there.

I like Now Foods, because they follow GMP and GLP protocols. The price is right too. iherb.com has good deals. I always get that stuff from them.

Probiotic:

Going to try this one next:

For over all immunity health this one is amazing!!:

ChildLife First Defense:

Going to try this Chewable next though:
