taking vitamins

Lindy was 2 Jan 30th. She took the infant liquid vitamins just fine. Now that she can take the regular childrens ones, she won't. I have tried every kind I can find as well as liquid ones. Spent a lot of money--though the health food stores will take them back (yay!!). She clearly isn't eating a very balance diet and needs them. Anyone else have this issue? What did you do?

I agree with Lea. My son was fine with the TriViSol liquid vitamins, but was not a fan of the PolyViSol liquid vitamins, so I would put it in his juice (which he would drink), but he would not always drink the full cup in a day so I was not sure how much he was getting. I switched him over to the gummy vitamins, and he LOVES them. He asks for more and will cry when I tell him he has to wait until the next day. Are you continuing to give her the liquid infant vitamins to help out a little? Also, the Minute Maid Kids Orange Juice has some vitamins added, which might help a little if nothing else works and she'll drink OJ.

Thats really strange. I've never heard of kids not liking fruit flavored chewable vitamins. Quite the opposite - you usually have to lock them away to be sure your kid doesn't OD because they think its candy. Sorry I don't have a suggestion :( Maybe you can still put the liquid ones in her juice.
