FAQs

What is the best brand for kids vitamins?

Although we can't claim which brand of kids vitamins is the very best, we can vouch for the brands that have made our best-of list — and any brands you find on Grove Collaborative, too. That's because Grove only sources thoughtful brands who care about you (and your kids — and pets) just as much as they do about the environment. You'll find top kids brands like Smarty Pants Vitamins, Babyganics, and Fresh Monster on Grove, along with many other kid favorites.

Speaking of the best brands, you can also take a peek at some of our other best-of roundups for kiddos. Here's some we think are worth taking a look at:


Do kids really need supplements?

The answer here is yes and no because some kids do and some kids don't. It really depends on if your child is eating a well-balanced diet everyday or not. Usually, if your child is eating a well-balanced diet, they may not need extra vitamins and supplements, but some children do have deficiencies they need help with. It's super important to take your child to their regular, well-child checkups to make sure they are growing properly and staying healthy. If you'd like to introduce a vitamin or supplement into your child's routine, make sure to check with their pediatrician first. Their doctor can even help you pick which multivitamin or supplement is right for your child.

If you're thinking about starting a multivitamin yourself, browse our list of the 12 Best Everyday Multivitamins, but just like with your child, make sure to check with your doctor before taking anything new.


What is the best immune vitamin for children?

There are a lot of immunity-boosting supplements out there for kids, but honestly not all of them work that well. Although we can't say which is the best, we do think that using elderberry can really help give your child's immunity the boost it needs to prevent and fight off colds and other illnesses. (You'll notice that a few elderberry gummies even made our list from brands like Llama Naturals and Zarbee's Naturals.) Elderberries are rich in antioxidants like Vitamin A, B, and C, which are super helpful during a respiratory infection.

Aside from supplements, here are some other ways to help your child stay well all year round:

  • Eating healthy food every meal and snack
  • Regular exercise — children need at least 60 minutes of exercise a day
  • Practicing proper handwashing techniques
  • A good night's sleep every night
  • Vaccinations (if that's something you're comfortable with)
