Children's Multivitamin?

Wondering if anyone has any ideas on good multi-vitamins for kids? My kid eats somewhat healthy, but I admit I could do better and it's tough getting a 2yo to eat broccoli and spinach every day. However I'm wary of the isolated vitamins (Flinstones, etc). Can kids benefit from a multivitamin? If so, any suggestions?

Re: Children's Multivitamin?

I am not qualified to tell you whether your kids would benefit, however if you decide to get one, I would definitely recommend you make sure there are no harmful ingredients added.

Flintstones and Centrum both have ingredients such as hydrogenated vegetable oil, which is completely ridiculous for a health item.

The one I take is PCC brand (a local organic coop) but I am sure your local grocery store carries such natural brands as well.

Hydrogenated vegetable oil? Why the heck do they put that in there?!

I haven't tried these on my kid or myself, but they look like a healthful vitamin that kids will actually take:
