Q.

Multivitamins and immune boosters

Prof, our little girl (10 months) is going to creche soon. She is currently on Ferrimed at night time and Vidaylin (without the iron) in the mornings for a supplement. The Paed said she looked a bit pale and precribed this for 3 months. She eats solids very good, sleeping very well and are overall very healthy.
I am considering to rather give her a multivitamin/ supplement to boost her immune system when she is at creche but there are so many on the market. Could you please help, how do I choose between Creche Guard, Septogaurd, Viral Choice or Scotts Emulsion?? Thank you, much appreciated!

You are correct,the choice is indeed very difficult. Taking your baby's age into consideration it would probably be best to give her the Creche Guard.
