Abidec Multivitamin Drops
Advantages: Easy to use, contains a good range of vitamins
Disadvantages: Tastes awful, Emily wouldn't take them
If you have read my previous review you will know that I wanted to find some vitamins to help boost my daughters immune systems for over the winter and I tried the Abidec vitamin syrup but my youngest daughter didn't like it at all so I decided to give these a try instead, it states on the box that it has a natural flavour and aroma.
The vitamins are available from chemists and supermarkets and cost just short of £4 for a bottle of 25mls but as the dosage starts at 0.3mls you actually have quite a long course.
The vitamins come in a bright orange cardboard box with a picture of an infant on the front, it states that there are 7 essential vitamins to help aid healthy growth included. It is stated that babies and children can use these vitamins, children under 1 year need to take 0.3mls per day and children from 1-12 years old need to take 0.6mls a day.
The liquid contains Vitamin A, Vitamin D2, Vitamin B1, Vitamin B2, Vitamin B6 and Vitamin C so it doesn't actually have as wide a range of vitamins in it as some of the other products available and even some of the other products available from Abidec.
Inside the box you find that there is a syringe included which is great as getting such a small dose in a normal syringe or even on a spoon would be almost impossible. To use the vitamins you have to draw up the liquid in the syringe and then direct the drops to the back of the tongue to administer. The liquid smells very sweet and it does taste of orange however it does have a medical taste to it too and yet again Emily doesn't like the taste.
I wanted to give my girls some vitamins to boost their immune system as one likes salad and a bit of fruit and the other likes veg and a bit of fruit so between them I know that they will be lacking in some vitamins. I have found it very difficult to find a vitamin for a 2 year old which doesn't have a strong flavour and this one just is not it. I cannot say if these vitamins had any effect on my daughter or not, I ended up having to hide the vitamins in her drinks but did noticed she would drink less on drinks that had this in them so I ended up putting it in the bin about half way down the bottle.
If your child will accept strong and not very palatable flavours then this will probably be ok for you but as mine won't it is not a suitable product for us.
Summary: No good again
