Multivitamins for 2 year old

So I'm trying to find multivitamins for my (just turned) 2 year old - nothing fancy, just the DoH recommended A, C, D etc.

We've tried a couple of different liquid ones and she hates them, spits it out, seems to avoid anything it's mixed in with. I thought about chewable ones but I can't find any for 2+, they all seem to be ages 3+.

Does anyone have any recommendations?

They only need vit d. However the others won't do any harm. I use the drops from Holland and Barratt. They are flavourless I pop it in his milk or Yoghurt. Not had any issues

The Healthy Start liquid drops seem to be palatable for fussy children. If you aren't entitled to free ones you can buy them in Superdug. If your child is very fussy, try hiding them in fromage frais.

The age 3 plus ones are because the sweetie ones are considered to be a choking hazard. Normally the vitamin content is the same.

I spoke to a pharmacist when I had the same problem and as above they told me it's just the choking hazard and that the vitamin content is fine.

So the pharmacist is saying go ahead and give the chewies to a 2yr old, just make sure they don’t choke?

My DS has had chewable haliborange bits since he was 2. I used to cut them up for him so he was less likely to choke.
