Marmite is good for B vitamins.

Ds has the Sainsbury's Kids multi vitamin, very cheap and very complete, the dietician was going to give him the NHS supplement powder but was happy with the contents of the Sainsbury's ones.

You can't have too much Vit B - and he probably needs way more than the RDA.

Thorne B Complex is very good, but doesn't contain Vit C.

DS is 8 and has a diagnosis of ADHD and tic disorder. We do TH and he recommended taking supplements. He takes Floradix saludynam which is a calcium, magnesium, zinc and vit D formulation and we were also told to take Vit B and C supplement. Vit B levels are apparently often low in ADHD.The floradix multivitamin has very low levels. We used to take a great Biocare junior one but they discontinued it.

He also takes vegepa-70.

Do you know of a high dose (not adult levels obviously) kids B and C formulation? Can have A in but low levels of D. Or alternatively a multi vitamin with decent levels of all of them and we will discontinue the Floradix.

He won't do chewable but tolerates pills/capsules and some liquids.

Thank you!
