A Vitamin for Kids Like You’ve Never Seen Before

Children don’t always get the proper nutrition from the food they eat.  Many of us moms have classic picky eaters.  That is why it is very important for children ages 4 and up to take a daily multivitamin and mineral.  Kids multivitamins come in many different forms, from chewable, to gummy.  However, most of those vitamins are full of added sugar, are often missing important nutrients and can stick to your child‘s teeth. Now there is a better and healthier alternative to the typical children’s multivitamin.


AlternaVites Kids is a new full spectrum children’s multivitamin and mineral designed to be sprinkled on the tongue like a pixie stick.  Using a proprietary blend of ingredients, alternaVites Kids contains essential vitamins and minerals formulated especially for children ages 4 and up.

Why alternaVites Kids is different from other children’s multivitamins 

  • Extremely versatile: Melt in your mouth or mix into smoothies, yogurts, puddings, shakes or even sprinkle onto fruit…The options are endless!
  • Available in two delicious flavors: Strawberry Bubblegum and Raspberry Cotton Candy
  • Contains 0 grams of sugar (free of aspartame and high fructose corn syrup)
  • No artificial colors, flavors, preservatives or sweeteners
  • Does not contain the major food allergens (egg, milk, peanut, tree nuts, wheat, soy, fish and shellfish)
  • Gluten  Free
  • Certified kosher
alternaVites Kids Supplement Facts

AlternaVites Kids come in individual packets. You can give your child age 4 and up one packet a day.  The directions suggest that you open the packet and sprinkle a little bit at a time on your child’s tongue.  When I tried giving my four-year-old son a packet I noticed that the crystals came out very fast.  It appeared that you can slow down how it pours by snipping a smaller hole into the packet.  AlternaVites also suggests that you can use a spoon, mix it into smoothies, puddings, yogurts or sprinkle it on top of fruit.

My son loved the flavor and I wasn’t able to give it to him fast enough. For children who don’t like to chew their multivitamins alternaVites Kids is a fantastic option.  They are fun, flavorful, versatile and do not contain sugar or other unhealthy additives. They’re a great way to make an easy healthy smoothie for breakfast on busy days or a snack after soccer practice.
