Can children take the multivitamin powder you recommend?

Published: November 12, 2012

Hi, Dr. Teitelbaum.

I like multivitamin powder that you recommend, andI have wondered if it is just as safe for children to use as for adults. For example, is it safe for the entire family as an ingredient in a smoothie or shake? Thank you so much for creating this product and I look forward to your reply.

Hi, Jean.

Yes, it is OK for those 7 and up. For ages 7-13, just use 1/4 scoop a day. For 14 and up, use 1/2 to 1 scoop a day. Use less if gas or diarrhea is a problem.
