Is Vita Guard easy to give to your child?

Most kids will love the chewable tablet – it tastes like fruit concentrate. Other kids need a gradual introduction to Vita Guard – see our tips below. ·Even if your child initially rejects the taste, please persevere with a slower, gradual introduction until they get used to it – the results are worth it!

 

Some tips for giving vita guard to your child:

  • Give with a meal (breakfast or lunch) for best nutrient absorption.
  • When your child drinks from a bottle, add powder or liquid to cold or lukewarm milk  (don’t microwave!)
  • When your child can chew the tablet: give the tablet before a meal while they are hungry. If necessary for toddlers and preschoolers, break into pieces and hand child one piece at a time, watching to make sure it goes down.
  • When your child doesn’t like it, introduce graduallyGradually work up to the full dose as they get used to it.Crush or dissolve the tablets and mix a small amount of the powder or liquid with a little food or drink that your child likes.·Choose a flavour that combines well with the strong fruity taste. (Milk, nutrishake, breakfast cereal or porridge (once cool), fruit puree, yoghurt, smoothie)Mix into a small amount of the food or drink so your child finishes it easily.Initially add just enough to change the taste only slightly, then increase the dose over a period of  days or weeks, depending on your child’s resistance level.  It can take 21 times before they accept it, in tough cases.
  • It’s Chewable, Crushable and Dissolvable
    • Crush: Vita Guard crushes easily in a mortar and pestle.
    • Dissolve and give via syringe or medicine dropper:
      1. Soak in a small amount of lukewarm water or milk for a few hours. (5-10ml per tablet)
      2. Use this method only if you can’t use the powder.· The extended exposure to air will lower the potency of the supplement. To limit this, keep in a SEALED container until use to limit exposure to air.
