Q.

vitamins and which?

Hi doc
Is it necessary to give our two year old boy vitamins?
I used to give him scotts emmulsion but he doesn' t like it.
He eats well, and still drinks about 2 cups of Nido everyday.
Should I give him chewable vitamins?
Does it matter which brand?
Vitaforce Junglevites, TLC Gummyvites, Brainchild, Nutrikids are some of the brands that I have seen in the shops, but not sure which is best or even if it is necessary to give him anything like this.

Your little boy does not appear to need any extra vitamins.He is drinking Nido which is fortified with vitamins A and D.He eats well and I presume that he is on a full mixed diet now.
