Dear moms,

I am looking for a Fruit/Vegetable complex multivitamin for my 5 year old who is a picky eater.
Any thoughts please?

Please, I'd like to avoid products associated with pyramid or multi-level marketing.

TIA!
DC

So What Happened?

Thanks moms! You all are a gem!
I went to Sprouts and was adviced to get Green Vibrance. Other than the taste, the content and online reviews are marvellous!

I recommend going to Frisco Health Market- They are very knowledgable and will help you find just what you are looking for. They offer a wide range to choose from.

They are located north of 121 at Preston and Lebanon

Sorry, but I'm a huge Juice Plus fan. No, I don't sell it. My whole family takes it, even my children who both have food allergies as well as outdoor allergies and are super picky eaters. It has helped all of us tremendously. We are not sick as often and if we are sick, then we get over it quicker. My husband and I both had trouble with our cholesterol and since taking JP+, all of our levels are within normal range. You may not like the money-making idea, but just read the research...it speaks for itself.

Good Luck

Juice plus is really one of the best products on the market. Have you thought about signing up and buying direct? Just say no to the business.

Our pediatrician recommends Flintstone Vitamins. I know, so basic but he loves them and they are chewable.

Hello D.,

I gave Twinlabs infant vitamins to my kids until they were 6. I put it in their chocolate / strawberry milk. it has omega 3s, vitamin d and many more. when searching for the right supplement for your daughter, keep in mind that some may affect her behavior because of the differet sugars in it. and if she has any type of allergies, check out the ingredients in all of them regular or natural/food based ones. good luck! ~C.~

I can't think of what we use, but it's a natural and organic vitamin without the sugars like so many other vitamins have. We get ours from Sprouts. I think Central Market has vitamins, too, but I'm not sure. I would say check out what they have there, and good luck. I completely agree about the MLM companies and their products.

Check out MonAvie. I don't personally use it, but have several mom friends who rave about it. You only have to drink an ounce or two the entire day, and it supposedly has great medical benefits for young kids with allergies, etc. I got an email address from one of my friends for her contact in Flower Mound: [email protected]____.com't know if they have a website or not.

We drink Danactive daily. Like you, I will have nothing to do with the mlm and stuff like that.

Arbonne International is a multi-level marketing company, BUT they also offer a wholesale buyer membership EXACTLY like a Sams club membership without any junk email, pushy people to tell you to start selling it, no minimum purchases either. Not sure if that fully answers your fears of network marketing, but as a company they have met a lot of high standards I have as a cancer survivor. Much cheaper than juice plus for kid vitamins, too, without sacrificing quality. Company has been around for 30 years.

Kids vitamin punch packs are daily drink mix from whole food sources. No artificial sweetners, dyes, preservatives. Vitamins are cold pressed to preserve efficacy. 100% of daily recommendations for kids under 8 yrs. old. Also offers a chewable that reminds me of a starburst for teens that contains an herbal complex to support stress adaptation.

Kids vitamins will run you approx. $17 a month, teen chews approx. 20 per month. You can get a 20% discount with a wholesale membership through my website, and I promise not to contact you about anything if that's what you wish. The company will never contact you - nice, huh? www.lizsmith.myarbonne.com

Don't trust me or would like to not be anywhere associated with a multi-level? Call the company directly and get your discount directly from them. 1.800.ARBONNE or www.arbonne.com

Glad to see you are looking for the best for your daughter. Good luck to ya!

I agree that Mona-vie is the best juice based vitamin source product on the market. We were avid Wheatgrass juicers until we found Mona-Vie. In two 2oz. servings there are the equivalent nutrients to 13 servings of fruits and vegetables as well as the highest antioxidant value of any fruit. It is a blend of Acai, and 18 other synergistic fruits. It tastes good, like berry juice. It has every essential amino acid and also contains protein and fiber. If you log on to my website, you may sign up as a preferred customer you will get a discount, and I will never approach you to sell the product. If you order and decide you no longer want to drink it, I will by back any unused bottles. There is no minimum purchase. If you live in the area, I can deliver a bottle to you so you can save on shipping. I recommend the original formula for kids. I truly believe in this product. Please do not discount my amazing product because of my stay at home job that allows me to raise my child. Please visit my website. www.mymonavie.com/bjhiller
Thank you for being interested in improving the health of your child and family.

Costco, as well as other retailers, carry a gummy vitamin called Gummy Vites by Lil Critters. We get those as well as their calcium version and my almost 3 year old devours them (I take the multi as well).
Monavie is a pyramid as well if I am not mistaken...

I have tried many supplements out there and most recommend this one....it is the best (Naturopathic Doctor and a health food store in separate cities).

Is the company itself offensive to you? They do sell direct to you without making you sell. Some distributors want everyone to sign up but the ones who truly want you to get your products know that some people do not want to sell things. Good luck.

We use "Yummi Bears"- they're gummi bear vitamins- my son loves them- they taste just like regular gummis. We get the "whole food" ones- it's just a bunch of fruits and veggies. They also have a mutlivitamin one, but we prefer the whole food. You can get it at Market Street and other natural food stores, like Sprouts and such.
