      Glad I started to buy these as I have such a fussy little eater

      I know that not everyone advocates taking a vitamin supplement, and though we d try to eat a healthy and varied diet in our house, my daughter has to be one of the fussiest individuals on the planet when it comes to food - there are so many things she simply refuses to eat and so I fee that I need to supplement her diet with a multivitamin,. As I shop at Tesco's a lot (and buy Tesco own brand adult multi vitamins for both myself and her dad) I have started to buy them for Sarah too.

      These vitamins are not the sort that you have to swallow whole with water, thank goodness, otherwise there would be no way my daughter would take them. These are the chewable variety and especially aimed at children as they look and taste very much like an orange flavoured Rowntree's Fruit Pastille. My daughter loves them and she ask for one every morning after her breakfast and before she leaves for school - I am never allowed to forget to give her one.

      The tablets themselves come in a nice child-friendly box with little cartoon pictures of a bouncy little orange on the front and inside there are two foil tacks of vitamins which are easy to dispense out of the foil by simply pushing up on the underside of the pack. There are 15 little jelly tablets in each pack and they contain all the essential vitamins, including A,C, D and E. Whenever I give my daughter these it helps to reassure me that she is getting all her vitamins as I know her diet can be a bit hit and miss.

      In terms of whether or not they actually do her any good, well, she still gets the sniffles, as most children of her age do, as she's constantly building up her immune system. However, I do feel that perhaps her ailments don't go on for quite as long as they used to do before she started to take these.

      I think that for slightly less than £3 for a month's supply of (rather tasty_ vitamins, then they are definitely worth it and I'll continue to buy them so long as she continues to take them.

      Recommended.

        As much as we try to get our grandchildren to eat lots of fruit and vegetables it is sometimes hard to make sure they have enough and I do worry that sometimes they aren't getting all of the vitamins that they need. I always believe that having the vitamins in food is best but just to top them up we have these vitamins too.

        I don't think you should ever replace fresh foods and vitamins like that with having tablets/sweets to replace them but just have them to go alongside a healthy diet.

        We buy these from Tesco and you get thirty in a pack. They are appealing to children as they don't look or taste like tablets instead they look like sweets so I never have a problem getting my grandchildren to take them they actually really look forward to it and see it as a treat.

        They are little round jellies and they taste of orange. My grandchildren really like them and they are only little.

        They include vitamins A C D and E. It is vitamin D I am always worried about whether they have enough as I know we mainly get that from the sunshine and if it is ever sunny we smother them in sun cream which prevents vitamin D being absorbed so I like to think that these tablets help.

        I don't know whether they have improved my grandchildren's health but it is reassuring to know that they have got these vitamins in them which can only be a good thing.

        Kids multivitamins from Tesco

        Although my three year old daughter isn't a particularly fussy eater, I decided to start giving her some vitamins just for reassurance that she is getting all the vitamins she needs. When looking around my local Tesco I spotted these multivitamins and thought they would be perfect.

        Tesco's children jelly multivitamins are available to purchase from Tesco either in store or online and usually cost £2.99. I bought them on a three for two deal making them a little cheaper. There are two different flavours to choose from, either orange or strawberry. We have the orange flavour.

        The vitamins come inside a bright cardboard box which features all of the normal product information with a picture of an orange bouncing across the box adding a fun element to it. Inside the box are two blister trays, each containing fifteen individual vitamin pastilles. The foil blisters are easy to squeeze the pastilles out of and I haven't encountered any difficulties trying to get each individual one out.

        I tried one of the pastilles before giving them to my daughter and they do have an orange taste, the taste is nice and they don't taste artificial at all. The jelly name isn't really that fitting as I found as I chewed the pastille is just turned into a soft mush, it wasn't jelly like at all but it wasn't a bad experience. One the pastille had disappeared there wasn't any taste left in my mouth either good or bad. My daughter takes one of these fine each morning and doesn't complain about having to have one.

        These are actually multivitamins so with just one pastille my daughter gets her recommended daily allowance of the vitamins A, C, D and E. As to whether they work or not, I don't know. My daughter hasn't been taking vitamins for long but I have noticed she recovers from colds a little quicker than before.

        I will definitely be purchasing these children's multivitamins from Tesco again. They taste like orange as they are meant to, my daughter doesn't mind taking them and they contain different vitamins so I am reassured my daughter is getting all the vitamins she needs.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          A good vitamin, I would recommend.

          When my son was 3 I decided that I would introduce a multivitamin into his diet as I felt that although he did eat fruit that he was missing out on some of the vitamins and minerals contained in vegetables, alongside this he is a very fussy eater (although a little better now) so I found variety a real struggle and as he started nursery he caught every cough, cold and sniffle going so I thought giving him a vitamin every day couldn't harm things. I originally purchased the Bassets ones that my son really liked and was more than happy to consume, they were on offer at £1.50 the first time I bought them however by the next time they were almost £3 and I decided to have a look and see if there was a cheaper alternative out there. While browsing my local Tesco I came across their own brand of jelly vitamins costing just £1.50 for the 30 pastilles which I thought was good value.

          Firstly the box is very bright and inviting to children, I much prefer this design to the other brands I have tried as it seems most child friendly. The colours are very bright and inviting and on the front the vitamins are made into little characters carrying out exercises which appealed to my little boy as he knew he was taking the vitamins to make him strong and healthy. The box also tells us that vitamins A, C, D and E are included which is good. They are said to be strawberry flavour which my son prefers however the colouring of "jelly vitamins" are in orange so I had firstly assumed they would be orange flavour. Alongside this the vitamin characters are bright red however the pastilles themselves are more of a burnt orange than a red colour which is slightly misleading.

          On opening the box you have 2 foil packed packets which have 15 pastilles in each one. The packets are very easy to distinguish from other medicines such as paracetamol or ibuprofen because the pastilles are much larger as well as being very sharp looking instead of the more gentle corners other packets have.

          The pastilles themselves have a faint strawberry smell which is a bit of a disappointment, the Bassets ones were very red and very fruity smelling more like a sweet than a vitamin but these are more faint and less red, more of an orangey colour if I'm honest. I tried one of these in the name of research and they had a pretty tangy taste to them that made my mouth water a lot. They very quickly turned soft in my mouth and disappeared leaving behind no real after-taste. I did only try these the once, my son had them on a more regular basis.

          Do they work? I don't think they are a miracle cure by any means but my son's skin, hair and nails seem to be much stronger and healthier and in himself he has more energy. Of course he did still catch a cold but nothing as full blown as he normally seems to do so I do think they done some good to him. I wouldn't day these were my preferred brand but I would have no hesitation in buying them again. They are cheap, appealing and do the job. In addition my son happily takes his vitamins with no fuss.

          Advantages

          a great little pick me up

          I like to buy Tesco's Jelly Vitamins for myself, as I don't like the taste of regular vitamins and much prefer the taste of these orange flavoured vitamins.

          These vitamins contain 100% of your daily recommended dosage of A, C, D and E, which are important and needed for:
          Vitamin A- eyesight and growth
          Vitamin C- growth and repair and the immune defence system
          Vitamin D- healthy teeth and bones
          Vitamin E- a powerful antioxidant, to fight toxins.

          You simply take one of these chewy tablets a day, chewing it then swallowing it. They are very easily taken and taste good as well.

          These vitamins taste quite nice, they are orange flavoured and go down well in the morning. They aren't sickeningly sweet, but they do not taste bitter. They are nice and chewy and easily broken down and swallowed.

          I was quite run down when I started taking these vitamins, and after about 2 weeks of taking them daily, I noticed that I was much brighter and wasn't feeling as tired. I think that these are a great way to get your vitamins, especially if like me, you have quite a limited diet and do not eat many fruit and vegetables or nuts.

          These vitamins suitable for children aged 3+. My niece takes them every day and loves getting her 'sweets' in the morning after breakfast, I think it is an easy way to ensure that children are getting all the vitamins that they need in a cheap and easy way.

          These vitamins cost £1.99 each, and you get 30 within a packet, I think that £1.99 a month is quite a good price to pay for these vitamins, especially because I feel much better for taking them. These vitamins are also regularly put on 3 for 2 deals within Tesco, so it is good to keep an eye out for them.

          Overall I like these vitamin tablets, they taste much nicer than the adult vitamins and they do the job in giving me an extra boost of vitamins A, C, D and E. I will continue taking these vitamins in the future, though I usually only buy them when I am feeling a bit run down and tired as they help me fight off colds and flues. Overall I would give these vitamins 5 out of 5 stars.

          *these jellies contain soya and may contain traces of nuts
          *for ages 3+

          A great way to get vitamins into children

          These vitamins are aimed at children but I use them as I work with the public and I suffer from a lot of colds and viruses.

          The vitamins are round is shape and orange in colour. They come in blister packaging which helps to keep them fresh. The vitamins are soft, squishy and chewy. I take two per day as they only contain 60mg of vitamin C - which isn't enough for me as I like to take between 500mg and 1000mg per day to build my immune system up. 60mg is the recommended daily dose of vitamin C though.

          They vitamins taste nice. They have a pleasant orange taste to them which is quite sweet and tangy. You can chew them but I tend to suck them and savour them as they taste so nice. I have been taking these on and off for around two years as they're cheaper than the branded ones. They don't stop me from coming down with colds but I have noticed that the colds I do get last for a shorter period of time and they're not as bad compared to before when I wasn't taking the vitamins.

          They would be a great way to get children to take vitamins as they vitamins are "hidden". I dislike taking pills/ tablets/ vitamins as a whole but I actually look forward to taking these. I have one in the morning and one at night. They're great and I managed to get them on a "3 for 2" offer which was even better!

            Not for me!

            When it comes to vitamins I try them out rather alot. I have various ailments and poor health most of the time. However the vitamins I try more often than not seem to make no difference to me at all.

            Now why would I being an adult purchase children's vitamins? Well...I liked the box and picked it up to peruse it and it says on the back they are suitable for adults too so I decided that costing a mere £1.48 a box that I should try them.

            The Packaging:

            The vitamins come in bright green, child friendly looking box. On the front of the box there is a picture of a couple of round cartoon people tablet type things on there and I am told that they are General Wellbeing Tesco Children's Jelly Vitamins 'Multivitamins A,C,D & E and that there are 30 pastilles in a box and that they are strawberry flavoured and that you are to take one a day. Other information on the back of the box includes being told dosage instructions (Adults and children over 3 years, one pastille per day), safety advice, ingredients and the composition of the pastilles are given and contact details for Tesco are stated. Inside the box you have two plastic and foil backed trays of 15 pastilles. Nice enough and like I say kid friendly packaging..... this is.

            The Pastilles:

            Well the pastilles once popped out of the trays are small and an off orange colour and round in shape. They look like jellies and when you chew them up go to goo in the mouth as you would expect them to. To me (though do bear in mind I am an adult) they don't taste of strawberry at all. Ok they're slightly fruity but to me they are incredibly sweet and sour however once consumed they don't leave much of an after-taste behind and they certainly are not horrid to take.

            Did I feel Any Noticeable Difference For taking These?:

            I took these day in and day out for a couple of weeks. I felt no difference in my general health and wellbeing at all, still caught flu even though these contain vit c lol. I can't say I was given any vitality or anything else and I got to the point I started to not want to take them because of the off putting sour taste.

            These may well be better for children and they are certainly easy for children to digest and chew but do remember that these can be taken by adults as well and I wouldn't recommend them for adults to take!

            Not for me these though I like the concept of them!

            Only available in Tesco stores costing £1.48 a box.
