Best Vegan Multivitamins for Kids and Toddlers

Are Multivitamins Vegan Friendly?

When we went vegan 6 years ago, a lot of things started popping up that we hadn’t even considered. For instance, is bread vegan? What about multivitamins?

We have 3 kids. We wanted to find vegan multivitamins that tasted good and weren’t insanely expensive!

There are a so many sneaky ingredients involving animal products that it’s hard to sift through information sometimes.

We’ve rounded up the best vegan multivitamins for kids so you don’t have to worry about it!

Gerber Lil Brainies

Gerber Lil' Brainies Kids Multivitamin with Omega Tri-Blend & DHA, 60 Count
  • Three 60 ct bottles of Gerber Lil' Brainies Omega Tri-Blend and DHA Kids Multivitamin Daily Vitamin
  • Gummy multivitamin provides nutrients kids don't get enough of and supports healthy brain development
  • Non-GMO kid multivitamin formula made without artificial flavors, synthetic colors or gluten

Even though Gerber Lil Brainies aren’t certified vegan, none of the ingredients used are animal derived. The DHA is plant based and the Omega-3’s are sourced from Chia seeds.

Most parents mention how great the price is and that the vitamins aren’t coated in sugar.

That being said, these vitamins aren’t the healthiest on the list. The first ingredient is sugar followed by more sugar (tapioca syrup.) So if you’re looking for something tooth friendly, these may not fit the bill.

What we love:

  • Plant based ingredients- no animal products
  • Good price
  • No sugar coating

What we don’t love:

  • Too much sugar
  • May not be tooth friendly

Non-medicinal ingredients: Sugar, Tapioca Syrup, Water, Chia Seed Oil (Salvia Hispanic L.), Less Than 2% Of: Algal Oil (Schizochytrium Sp.), Natural Flavors, Pectin, Citric Acid, Sodium Citrate, Coconut Oil, Colors (Fruit and Vegetable Juice Concentrates, Annatto Extract), Carnauba Wax.

Verdict: ⭐⭐⭐

Renzo’s Picky Eater Multivitamin

Renzo's Picky Eater Kids Multivitamin with Iron - Dissolving Kids Vitamins with Vitamin D3 & K2 and More - 60 Sugar-Free Melty Tabs, Cherry Cherry Mo’ Cherry Flavored
  • A melty kids multivitamin: Renzo’s sugar-free dissolvable kids vitamins are a healthy, melty and delicious way for kids to get the vitamins they need; say goodbye to sugar-filled gummy vitamins or yucky liquids
  • Supports bone strength: Picky Eater melty tabs are packed with iron, zinc, calcium, vitamin A, vitamin B, vitamin C, vitamin D3 and vitamin K2 to cover nutritional gaps. May provide a number of benefits to help support health and wellness*
  • Made with kid-approved flavors & clean ingredients: These melty tabs come in a yummy cherry flavor; our formula is vegan, non-GMO, sugar-free, gluten-free, free of the 8 common allergens & free of artificial colors and flavors.

Renzo’s are jam packed full of nutrients- up to 3x the vitamins in 1 Renzo vs traditional kids vitamins. They are also certified vegan so there are no worries 🙂

It truly is a great product for picky eaters- some parents mentioned dissolving it in glasses of milk easily without their picky toddler noticing.

There is something that was mentioned often- Renzo’s changed their formula recently to add more iron. They added a childproof cap, changed the instructions to only give half a tab instead of a full one and changed the ingredients list but didn’t issue much of a warning to parents. Iron in large quantities is dangerous for kids and some kids ended up with too much.

If you KNOW to only dose half a tab- it’s probably fine but please be aware of these issues.

What we love:

  • Vegan
  • No sugar added
  • Easily dissolved if you have a finicky kid

What we don’t love:

  • Be aware of added iron
  • Hard to cut a tab in half

Non-medicinal ingredients: xylitol, natural flavors and color, plant-based magnesium stearate and stearic acid, monk fruit extract, malic acid

There is NO sugar and no bad ingredients… however, that might pose a problem for some kids.

There are complaints about the taste and texture but that seems to a small complaint overall.

A major issue we could see with these multivitamins is that the daily dose is 4 gummies- that could get expensive!

  • Vegan
  • No artificial colors or flavors or sugar
  • Made with real fruits and veggies

What we don’t love:

  • Not a great taste

Some people were mentioning the taste but what we’ve noticed is that there will always be a divide. Some will love the taste, others will not. In this case, the divide is pretty evenly split.

Lots of other people seemed to love them! The fact that they don’t stick to your teeth was mentioned more than a few times.

The price is fair and the ingredients are not horrible to read.

What we love:

  • Vegan
  • Non-GMO
  • Gluten free
  • Won’t stick to teeth

That being said- a fair amount of reviewers mentioned the sugar coating on these vitamins and said they wouldn’t have purchased if they knew about it.

On the flip side, a lot of parents talked about how much their kids love them so maybe the sugar coating is the lesser of two evils if you have a picky kid.

What we love:

  • Vegan
  • No artificial colors or flavors
  • Tooth friendly with a special formulation

What we don’t love:

  • An extra coating of sugar
