    Daily multi-vitamin / mineral supplement for children

    Children's Basic Nutrients is an excellent way to be sure picky eaters get the essential nutrients. It features small‚ easy-to-swallow capsules that can also be opened and mixed with food.


    Because of the state of the current food supply and the difficulty of getting kids to consume five servings of vegetables and fruits daily‚ few children get all the essential nutrients they need from their diet. A multi-vitamin/mineral supplement can be considered "dietary insurance‚" an excellent way to be sure a child is getting the essential nutrients even when they don't eat right. Children's Basic Nutrients offers comprehensive vitamin and mineral supplementation for children ages four and up. It contains no sugars‚ binders‚ or allergenic excipients. Only the finest and optimally absorbed nutrients are used‚ and the easy-to-swallow‚ kid-size capsule makes taking it easy‚ even in young children. The capsule can also be taken apart and mixed into food (like apple sauce or yogurt).

ALLERGY WARNING
This product is contraindicated in an individual with a history of hypersensitivity to any of its ingredients.

Iodine may occasionally cause an allergic reaction in some individuals.

PREGNANCY WARNING
If pregnant‚ consult your health professional before using this product.

INTERACTIONS
As vitamin K interferes with the effect of anticoagulant drugs (like Coumadin)‚ the concurrent use of these agents should be avoided.

Folinic acid and 5-methyltetrahydrofolate supplementation is not recommended concurrent with methotrexate cancer therapy‚ as they can interfere with methotrexate's anti-neoplastic activity; however‚ these folate sources have not been shown to interfere with the anti-inflammatory activity of methotrexate. An individual taking methotrexate for psoriasis or rheumatoid arthritis can safely take a supplement containing folate.

ADDITIONAL WARNINGS
Accidental overdose of iron-containing products is a leading cause of fatal poisoning in children under six. Keep this product out of reach of children. In case of accidental overdose‚ call a doctor or poison control center immediately.

Vitamin C can cause diarrhea in some individuals in large doses‚ which can vary from person to person and resolves when the amount is reduced.

TAMPER EVIDENT
Use only if bottle is sealed. Store tightly sealed in a cool‚ dry place.

    My 6 year old couldn't swallow Children's Basic Nutrients so it was nice to be able to open the capsule and mix it with juice. He doesn't really like the taste (it smells awful) but he does drink it.

    Pros

    Great ingredients.

    Cons

    Child can't swallow it. Smells bad.

    My kids take Children's Basic Nutrients by Thorne Research daily. It helps them not catch everything going around. The only thing I could say that is bad is the smell/taste. They don'e like it but it is a fairly small pill and they can swallow it without much trouble.

    Pros

    Great nutrients, fairly good price!

    Cons

    Not a pleasant smell/taste.

    I am really pleased with this product and so is my daughter! Whats exceptional about this product is the fact that there are no fillers and the vitamins are whole food sourced...... no synthetic forms of B-12 in this kids multivitamin! Thorne Research uses methylcobalamin the form of B-12 that the human body recognizes and utilizes naturally. Also there are no "natural flavors" in other words chemicals included. No other additives either. One of the best kid multivitamins on the market!

    I looked for a long time to find a supplement for my son that was safe because of his sensitivities. The pills are very small and easy to swallow. The quality is very good and I will continue to buy these as they are best for children with allergies or sensitivities.

    Pros

    small easy to swallow

    Cons

    I must not have read the description well enough to see that these are not chewable. They are childrens vitamins and you have to swallow??!!?? My boys are 4 5 and 8 they dont swallow pills yet. I tried to open them to just give it to them that way and it was very bitter and nasty tasting. I wont order Childrens Basic Nutrients again. Im sure the ingredient content is very good but it is not in a form for kids to take easily!!

    Pros

    Good ingredients

    Cons

    Not chewable

    I have to be very careful about getting my 3 year old to take these of course she cant swallow a pill yet so I have to break them open and mix them with something that disguises the taste ketchup seems to work well as well as other acidic foods and drinks.

    Pros

    Complete and all natural.

    Cons

    Not a chewable (I knew that when I bought it though).
