    I might be going off on a bit of a tangent here, but I have managed to get my fussy 2.5 year old to add quite a few vegies to her diet by the following method:

    First night - I tell her she must pick it up and lick it
    Next night - Take a tiny nibble
    Night after that - small bite

    If she spits it out I don't worry, I just keep going. Sometimes I need to spend several nights on the same step. I am amazed how well this has worked actually! She now likes lots of things.

    I don't know if it would work for your little one, but I just thought I'd suggest it just in case.

    Yep my kids have mv's. The general consensus with mv's is that they are usually a waste of money as people should be getting everything with their healthy balanced diet, but there is NO WAY my kids eat enough fruit and vegies and everything else needed to get an adequate mix of vitamins and minerals.
    I do sneak vegies into their dinners, but you can't do that with everything every night, and yes I have tried everything else. With my eldest 2 I can put on my bossy mummy voice and tell them they have to have one mouthful of each vegie on their plate, but that's not going to be enough to meet dietary requirements! And I can't do that with the youngest as he just falls into an emotional mess on his chair.

    I give them Herron Vita mini's, from what the pharmacist and I read last time I was in there, they are more concentrated, so you only need to give them 1 rather than 2 like with some other brands, so it works out cheaper. They are also cheaper than many other brands to start with. They are chewable ones. And I actually only give them 1 every second day as I can't really afford to be buying a big jar of mv's every 3 weeks or so and also I don't believe they NEED one every day.

    I can't remember DDs multi V name sorry.

    I just went to the chemist, looked at the complete muiltys (for kids they're generally gummy/Lolly looking things) and picked the cheapest one

    Read the lable because some will say 'muilty vitamin' but only contain 5-6 vitamins, others are complete muiltys

    I give the kids Natures Way for Fussy Eaters (says it has vegie extracts in it) and Fish Oil. DS probably doesn't need the vitamin as he eats plenty of fruit but isn't great on vegies and the fish oil cause he bounces all over the place and I thought it might help calm him down a little. DD does not eat a single fruit or vegetable related product for the last 6 months or so and did take the vitamin but currently won't take it either. She gets the fish oil in her bottle at night and also a probiotic.

    I'm not sure of the true benefits of multivitamins, I know they say most adults who take them in reality don't need them but I was at a loss as to what to do with my non vegie eating monkies so thought I'd try it for a bit.
