Do you give your toddler vitamins? My dr said if he eats well, its not necessary.

Re: vitamins
Nope... not without doctor's orders! Too much can damage teeth and organs. My ped tests for common deficiencies after the age of 5. My oldest son takes Rx vitamin D + calcium (adult strength), but my younger doesn't take anything. My younger was born with IgG deficiency, so he drank PediaSure as a toddler (even though he's a great eater... especially veggies). He hasn't needed it since he was about 2.5 or 3, though.

Re: vitamins
They only take vitamins on the doctor's orders but if they have no vitamin deficiencies, I don't let them take any at all. We eat healthy foods as much as possible and that's one reason why it's alright not to take vitamins. I think the foods that the kids eat are already enough to ensure that they are healthy.
