QDo I need to give my 13-month-old baby any spe­cial vi­ta­min sup­ple­ments? He eats pretty well.

ANutri­tion­ist Dr Joanna McMil­lan says:

Sup­ple­ments are not nec­es­sary if your baby is eat­ing a good range of foods. How­ever you may con­sider giv­ing him an omega-3 sup­ple­ment as it can be dif­fi­cult to get enough of these es­sen­tial fatty acids through diet alone. Oth­er­wise it’s safe to give a multi-vi­ta­min which has been spe­cially for­mu­lated for that age group, but avoid giv­ing him any in­di­vid­ual nu­tri­ent sup­ple­ments. If you are con­cerned about your child’s food in­take or if there are health con­cerns, speak with your GP, di­eti­tian or other health pro­fes­sional.
