I can't say how much Children's Multi-Vi-Min has improved my children's health... they eat well already but, let's face it, most adults don't even eat the variety of healthy foods they should, never mind picky-eating kids! I have to assume it's helping them and my naturopath thought it looked pretty good so I continue to give it to them on good faith.
I bought Children's Multi-Vi-Min because it is designed for kids, i.e. the balance of vitamins should be safe and appropriate, and the capsules are small enough for my daughter to swallow (she just turned 5).
I wish it were food-based and we go through them quickly because larger children need to take so many capsules, as they are based on weight.
Overall, I'm pretty happy with Children's Multi-Vi-Min and haven't found anything yet that looks better.
Pros:small capsule size for small children
made specifically for children; makes it easy to figure out dose
Cons:small capsule size makes it harder to use same product for bigger kids (have to take several pills)
not whole-food based
