Are gummy vitamins better for children?
It depends on your child’s preferences.
Gummy vitamins are easier for children to take due to the soft texture and the range of flavours available, and you can even disguise them as a delicious treat to convince your child to enjoy an essential source of goodness.
However, sometimes gummy vitamins have a lower vitamin count and may contain a higher amount of sugar compared to a chewable variety, but chewable vitamins may have a chalky texture that your child might not like.
Can adults take children’s vitamins?
Children and adults have different dietary needs, so it’s best not to take children’s vitamins during adulthood unless advised by your doctor.
Taking them probably won’t cause you any harm, but you may find that you’ll be lacking the essential vitamins you need for your age.
However, the dosage is typically lower in children’s vitamins compared to an adult variety, and they’re easier to take, too.
If you’re concerned about experiencing side effects with stronger vitamins or struggle to take them, speak to your doctor to see if they’d be right for you.
Do babies need vitamin supplements?
Yes, the NHS recommends that all breastfed babies should take a vitamin D supplement every day from the day they’re born.
Formula-fed babies may need to take these too, but some formulas are already fortified with vitamin D, so make sure to consult with your healthcare team about this if your baby is taking formula.
After six months old, your baby should start taking supplements of vitamins A, C, and D, this will continue until they turn five.
Again, remember to consult your healthcare team if your baby is formula-fed.
Do children need iron supplements?
Your child should be able to get enough iron from eating a balanced diet, with food such as red meats, fish, leafy vegetables and beans.
However, if your child is a picky eater, has a vegetarian or vegan diet, exercises often, or they’re going through menstruation or a rapid growth spurt, you may need to give them an extra boost of iron through a supplement.
