hi my seventeen month old ds has become increasingly fussy eater. i am trying to sort it out but in the meantime i really want to give him vitamin drops? does anybody know any good ones. I know you can get them from hv but mine is v reluctant to give them ( i know that i am entitled to them and could probably push her for them but it just seems easier to go round her right now)

also does anyone know if they contain iron in them or are they separate? i think someone told me you can only get iron supplments on prescription.

I give my daughter dinochews (multivitamin) from Higher Nature and also Lemon Fish oil (omegas). You can get them online from the Higher Nature website.
