Our expert says:
Generally speaking it should not be necessary for toddlers to take vitamins and mineral supplements if they are eating a balanced diet and have not been ill. Click on 'Child' at the top of this page and then on 'Nutrition' and read all the articles on 'Diets for Toddlers', to see what and how much toddlers should be eating. If your child does not eat well or if the diet is unbalanced then it may be a good idea to have his/her health assessed and if the Paediatrician should recommend extra vitamins and/or minerals, to give the child such supplements.
