3yrs old will not take pills

Hi, my son is 3yrs now and because he is at a creche, I am giving him multivitamin and vitamin C pills that he has to chew. I give him multivitamin in the morning and vitamin C in the evening. He took them the 1st week but now he hates them. What other ways can I use to make him interested in taking the pills. I have thought of mixing the pill in a juice but I''m not sure if it will still work the way it''s supposed to. Please advice. Thank you

Children of this age are often very reluctant to take pills although many pills come in a good tasting chewable form.Your son would much prefer to be taking Creche Guard which will give him all the vitamins he needs.
