Are Multivitamins Necessary For Surrey Kids?

Hello Surrey! Welcome to today’s Surrey children’s nutrition post. I am Phil Hoskins, and I promote children’s health in Surrey and the V4M 1Z9 zip code area.

Today’s post discusses children’s vitamins. Many Surrey parents give their kids a chewable or liquid multivitamin. We all know that it is essential for Surrey kids to get sufficient amounts of vitamins and minerals and we often give them a pill to fill in nutritional gaps, just in case. Are multivitamins necessary for Surrey kids?

I have found that Surrey pediatricians have varying opinions about this issue. Some Vancouver children’s doctors recommend parents give their children vitamins in pill form or at least don’t discourage it.

More importantly, Surrey pediatricians urge parents to feed their children a variety of nutritious foods, presumably because vitamins and minerals in foods are better absorbed.

The Mayo Clinic website offers the following advice for Surrey parents who give their children a multivitamin:1

Make sure the multivitamin is designed for your child’s age group.
Choose one that provides 100 percent of the daily value (DV) for all vitamins and minerals.
Store multivitamins out of your child’s reach and make it clear that they are not candy.
Don’t use multivitamins as a replacement for proper nutrition.
