Finding a vitamin Bunny doesn’t mind taking has been a real challenge. We tried the gummy vitamins, but she thinks they are candy and wants more than the two she’s allowed. We tried chewables and it was a battle trying to get her to chew them up because she hated the taste.
alternaVites sent us a box of their Kids powder formula vitamins to try out this month. alternaVites Kids vitamins come in a little pouch that you can either pour on a spoon or directly into your child’s mouth. They are recommended for ages 4 and over, so I only tried them with Bunny. I was nervous about the powder form. Do you ever remember eating pixie sticks and accidentally breathing in the powder and gagging? Yes you do, don’t lie. Well, I was afraid of that with the powdered vitamin.
Thankfully, Bunny had no issues with taking the vitamins and she said they tasted “yummy”. I still worry about medicines and vitamins that taste too candy-like, but I’m sure to keep these well out of her reach and we have had many conversations about vitamins being the same as medicine.
I like that alternaVites are free of sugar and artifical sweeteners. Some of the gummy vitamins we were buying had several grams of sugar just for two gummies! In addition, alternaVites Kids:
Melts in your mouth
Comes in 2 awesome flavors – strawberry bubblegum & raspberry cotton candy

Free of aspartame and high fructose corn syrup
Contains no artificial sweeteners, colors, flavors or preservatives

alternaVites Kids are also great for traveling. No need to pack pills that end up spilling in your suitcase. The pouches are TSA-friendly and do not take up room in your toiletry bag.
I think we’ll be sticking with alternaVites for Bunny’s daily multivitamin. It’s simple, easy to travel with, and I don’t have to fight Bunny to take it each day. Winner, winner.
