Kids Vitamins - which ones taste best?

Hi, just wondering if anyone can suggest a kids' vitamin brand that tastes okay? I've tried the Abidec ones but they seem to taste horrible & the kids won't take them. Also, are the chewable ones safe enough for a 4-year-old?

My three year old has the strawberry chewable ones from Bassett I think. He loves them smile

Thanks Misty9. Sounds like a good one to try for my older DD then - I'll keep an eye out for those when I'm shopping; I think she'd respond better to the chewable ones than to the liquid.

If anyone has any recommendations regarding a (nice tasting) liquid multi-vitamin for a younger child, that would be great. Thanks

Haliborange chewy ones go down very well with mine.

The Boots syrup doesn't taste bad. 20 month old DS started refusing Abidec but is fine with the Boots own brand. Plus Abidec smells like piss.

Thanks - I agree, the Abidec does smell horrible; I couldn't even face trying it myself to see what it did taste like. I'll give some of those suggestions a go and see how the kids respond. Cheers x
