I think most of them have no added sugar but some have some fruit sugars present. We figured they are so small that even if they were full sugar they wouldn’t cause a huge spike so she just gets the bassets chewy ones as she didn’t like any of the expensive ones we tried.
I swear by the Well Kid ones. They have excellent levels of both vitamins and minerals including iron, zinc, vit D, etc. So many children’s vitamins have a poor range of vitamins. You get what you pay for.
I’ve just checked the box - 21 nutrients, chewable one-a-day with sweetener. The full name is Well Kid 4-12 years.
They’re often on offer eg 3 boxes for the price of 2. I get mine from Tesco but high street chemists stock them too.
As long as kids eat a healthy diet then multivitamins are a waste of money. The vitamins go once round the circulation then get excreted out as surplus to requirements. That applies to grown ups, too, come to think.
The only exception is Vit D, specially with lockdown. If you don’t go out, you won’t make enough.
