Children's Vitamin

Vitamins and other supplements can help a person overcome an illness, increase their energy level or help to keep nutrients in balance when the body does not do so naturally. Many adults get their vitamins at the grocery store or through an online retailer. However, should children be taking vitamins as well?

If a child needs to take a vitamin, their doctor will let you know. A child should not be put on a vitamin regimen without the advice and guidance of a pediatric physician. This is because children are not as developed as adults and could suffer serious health consequences if they are given too much of something that they don't need. 

Children who are put on a vitamin regimen should be told why they are taking the vitamin and that they should not take more than they are supposed to. While many vitamins and other supplements look and taste like candy, they are not meant to be used as a treat.

Children's vitamins can be found in most grocery stores or online just like adult vitamins. Online retailers or a grocery store pharmacist may be able to give you more information about what you are giving your child in the event that your doctor is not able to fully answer any questions that you may have.
