A good alternative to gummies
is alternaVites Kids multivitamins. The melt-in-your-mouth form of these vitamins allows them to go down quickly and not stick to teeth
. Plus, they are sweetened with xylitol which dentists recommend
— and helps make them taste great too, so your kids will enjoy taking them!

As a registered dietitian, I know how important it is for children to take a daily multivitamin, but as a mom, I know how hard it is to find one that I’m comfortable with and that they don’t mind taking. With alternaVites Kids, we’re all happy! I know they are getting a comprehensive formula, and kids find it delicious and easy to take.

As a pediatric dentist, I see firsthand the damage that sugar can do to children’s teeth. It’s hard to hear that my patients take sugary vitamins or gummy vitamins that can stick in their teeth, because these can contribute to tooth decay. With alternaVites Kids, there is finally a product that is nutritionally sound, sugarless, and won’t get stuck in between their teeth.
Even better, it's sweetened with Xylitol, which as a dentist, makes me happy!

My 15 year old daughter just got braces. She has great difficulty swallowing pills and because she regularly uses "gummy" vitamins/calcium/etc., she can no longer use them because of the sticky texture which is a no-no for those with braces. I was browsing the vitamin aisle at my local healthfood store and stumbled upon AlternaVites for Kids. I thought I was in heaven! :o) These vitamin packets will make life soooooooooooooo much easier for my daughter. I also love the fact that they are sugar-free (a definite plus in view of the braces on her teeth which makes cleaning them difficult to begin with). I just wanted to take a moment to let someone know how VERY happy I am to have this alternative to pills or gummies!Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
Your product is wonderful! My son is on the spectrum. He has a very limited diet and is very sensitive to tastes and textures. This is the first vitamin supplement we've found that he'll take. We mix it with yogurt, and he doesn't even notice. And unlike those gummy things, the alternaVites for Kids doesn't wreak havoc with the caps on his teeth. Thanks for solving our vitamin problem and helping ensure our son gets the nutrients he needs.
