Multivitamins are sort of like a safety net. We take them and give them to our children just in case they’re missing something in their diet. It’s not a substitute for food but it keeps us from fretting too much. That said, the more complete the multivitamin, the better.
Compared to Flintstones Complete, Good Sense Animal Shapes does not shine. Whereas Flintstones has eighteen vitamins and minerals (12 of which are at least 100% DV for ages 4 and up), Good Sense has only twelve vitamins and minerals (only 2 of which are at least 100% DV). To be fair, Good Sense is more complete than some other multivitamins on the market. Flintstones is just better.
The contents of one tablet (one dose for children four and up) are as follows:
Total Carbohydrates: < 1 g
Sugars: Vitamin A (50% as beta carotene): 2500 IU
Vitamin C: 60 mg
Vitamin D: 400 IU
Vitamin E: 15 IU
Thiamin (vitamin B1): 1.05 mg
Riboflavin (vitamin B2): 1.2 mg
Niacin: 13.5 mg
Vitamin B6: 1.05 mg
Folic Acid: 300 mcg
Vitamin B12: 4.5 mcg
Iron: 15 mg
Sodium: 10 mg
Good Sense tastes like Flintstones. They are little zoo animals in different colors, a little smaller than Flintstones. My kids don’t mind them.
