Children's Basic Nutrients
In small capsules, providing easy dosing for children of all ages
contains no sugar, binders, or allergenic excipients
provides only the purest, most bioavailable nutrients
in easy-to-swallow, kid-sized capsules
can be taken out of the capsule and mixed with food
Unlike many multiple vitamin-mineral supplements for children, Children's Basic Nutrients contains no sugars, binders, or allergenic excipients. Only the finest, most bioavailable nutrients are used, and the easy-to-swallow, kid-size capsule makes dosing easy, even in young children. The two-part vegetarian capsule may also be taken apart and mixed into food (like apple sauce or yogurt) or liquid.
For finicky eaters who need more protein, try Medipro. Experienced parents have suggested that mixing the powders into yogurt and partially freezing it becomes a treat. A frozen fruit shake mixed in the blender is another way to provide these nutrients.

INTERACTIONS/CONTRAINDICATIONS As vitamin K interferes with the effect of anticoagulant drugs (like Coumadin), the concurrent use of these agents should be avoided.
Folinic acid and 5-methyl-tetrahydrofolate supplementation is not recommended concurrently with methotrexate cancer therapy, as they can interfere with methotrexate's anti-neoplastic activity; however, these folate sources have not been shown to interfere with the anti-inflammatory activity of methotrexate. An individual taking methotrexate for psoriasis or rheumatoid arthritis can safely take a supplement containing folate.
OTHER WARNINGS Accidental overdose of iron-containing products is a leading cause of fatal poisoning in children under six. Keep this product out of reach of children. In case of accidental overdose, call a doctor or poison control center immediately.
