Look No Further: Kid-Friendly Vegan Vitamins

Feeding your children a variety of whole vegan foods like fruit, vegetables, grains, and beans should give them most of the nutrients they need to grow and thrive. However, using supplements may still be a good idea since some vitamins—like B12 and D—can be harder to obtain from food.

Keep in mind that a lot of kids’ vitamins are gummies, which—don’t get us wrong—can be delicious. However, they usually contain gelatin, which is made from boiled animal parts. ? By choosing to use vegan vitamins for your children (and yourself), you’re helping to save animals—and usually getting a more natural supplement, too! (Remember, as with any dietary change, you may wish to consult your children’s physician before having them take any vitamins.)

Here are some vegan options to consider:

These chewables provide 250mg of vitamin C as calcium ascorbate and have a tangerine flavor that the whole family will love.

These contain no artificial flavors, sweeteners, or dyes and offer vitamin C in the form of ascorbic acid. Kids can take one or two of these tangy orange-flavored gummies, depending on their needs.

Give your kids lots of the vitamins and minerals that they need with this chewable multivitamin that gets nutrients from organic fruits and vegetables.
