Are you a parent trying to make sense of choosing the right vitamins for your child? Parenting is difficult these days as we try to do what’s right for our families, but live in constant fear of what everyone decides is wrong. And even when you make a decision you feel you can be proud of, you’re probably trumped by how your child feels about it. I know that struggle all too well, especially when it comes to choosing child child vitamins.
It takes me a while to figure out which vitamins I, as a parent, actually approve of. I do my research to find healthy ones and my kiddo ends up not liking them. Who doesn’t love time and money flushed down the drain? But, here’s where MegaFood Kids Nutrient Booster Powders comes in handy.

These MegaFood Powders are, among other things, gluten and dairy free. They’re loaded with goodness that most parents can be happy giving to their children. MegaFood has partnerships with and uses ingredients from companies like Kauai Organic Farms, Lundberg Family Farms, and Uncle Matt’s Organic.
Additionally, the MegaFood Nutrient Booster Powders are sugar free and contain no sweeteners, flavorings, colorings, or preservatives.
You can easily add any of these powders to your child’s drinks or treats. If your child has difficulty swallowing or just doesn’t want to take vitamins, these eliminate that problem.
The Not So Good
To be honest, blending with juice didn’t go over well with my own child. Even I had difficulty getting past the taste in her juice, and I’m totally accustomed to eating and drinking weird stuff for my own health.
So, sneaking these child vitamins into foods may be extra work for you. The only way I found I could truly use these without her knowing she was taking vitamins was to put it in things like smoothies or treats that overpowered the taste.
Some of the best tricks for sneaking these vitamins was to:
- Blend in smoothies
- Cook into pancakes
- Mix in with flavored oatmeal
- Include in a favorite no-bake treat

I’m still on the fence about MegaFood Nutrient Booster Powders. I absolutely love the healthy ingredients and that I don’t have to worry that I’m poisoning my kid while providing her the vitamins and nutrients she needs. But, sneaking child vitamins is a bit of extra work that I don’t always have time for.
If you’re a mom whose child is having difficulty swallowing vitamins, has certain food allergies, or simply doesn’t like taking them, this is DEFINITELY the way to go. And, you can feel good about the quality.
