My 17 month old is just getting over some sort of virus. He hasn't eaten well over the last week. I wanted to start giving him a multi-vitamin. Can anyone recommend a good one for him?

I can tell you our vitamin regimine for our 1.5 yo. Don't know if this is why, but since I started this in August...HEALTHY!!<br><br>
scoop of baby probiotics in morning milk<br>
dropper ful of trivisol (generic brand)<br>
recommended dose of children's Floradix (expensive but worth it)

Thanks elf. What probiotics do you use? I used Floradix myself and loved it. I didn't know they made a children's version.

DD is a ridiculously finicky eater. I keep from stressing with a sippy cup full of Naked Green Machine juice every morning plus two daily Rhino Gummy Bear Vitamins and two Rhino Gummy Omega-3s with DHA. She does eat yogurt so I don't stress on a probiotic.<br><br>
I'm also considering starting Carlson's Vitamin D Baby Drops for the winter.

I would defiantly do a separate vit. D (recommended intake but naturapath is 35 IU per LB of body weight) I give my 2 year old 1000 IU.<br><br>
I give her a liquid multi (local brand) in her raw fresh green juice that I juice- about every 2 days.<br><br>
She also get kefir (for natural probiotics) in her daily smoothie with hemp, coconut oil/milk, spurilina, sometimes bee pollen, goji berries and fruit.<br><br>
Hasn't been sick this year even tho exposed.

my dd got to try a sample of these <a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/redirect.html?ie=UTF8&linkCode=ur2&camp=1789&creative=9325&tag=motheringhud-20&location=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.amazon.com%2Fgp%2Fproduct%2FB0015DE35O" target="_blank">http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0015DE35O</a> at the chiro and went nuts over them. We have these <a href="http://www.sourcenaturals.com/products/GP1208/" target="_blank">http://www.sourcenaturals.com/products/GP1208/</a> which look great but its tough to get dd to accept them regularly. Its a cycle of give her one every day for a few days which she takes eagerly and begs for more, then a day or two of accepting less eagerly, and then one day we'll find it spit out on the floor. Wait a couple months, then offer again and repeat the cycle! I guess they taste too "vitaminy" for her..oh well. Maybe I'll just eat them myself and buy her the nordic berries.
