On a recent trip to the doctor’s office with my daughter, I learned about the importance of vitamin D for young children as well as for adults of all ages. End result: trip to my local pharmacy to pick up vitamin D for the entire family. I landed this bottle of vitamin D drops with Dora the Explorer on the cover, with liquid vitamin D drops appropriate for children 2 years and older. It claimed to be tasteless, odourless, and would pack the daily recommended amount of 400IU in just one drop! So, I decided to give it a try.
Product review: What happened?
The liquid vitamin D dispensing bottle certainly isn’t as easy to use as a gummy vitamin where all you have to do is pop open the lid and pass your child the vitamin to chew on. The liquid vitamin D drops come in a small glass vial with a specially designed spout to dispense only 1 drop at a time but I can see the potential to drip too much if not carefully handled. You do have to get the hang of holding the bottle ‘just so’ so that you only dispense the one drop and one drop only since each drop has the required 400IU of vitamin D. Not to worry though, the package comes with very clear images to follow. I was able to do it confidently by day 2. You also have to remember to store it in an upright position due to its liquid consistency.
According to my kid, she claimed, “mom! I can’t taste a thing!” so it really is tasteless and goes down faster than fast. I usually land a drop onto whatever breakfast item she’s eating. I prefer to do it in the morning to get it out of the way before something else distracts me.
My kid’s review about the Kids Ddrops:
“Dora D drops, you only have 1 drop a day so you put it on a piece of whatever you have or you can put it in your mouth and east it and you don’t have to squeeze it because it’s in a glass bottle. Okay, I’m done!”
Easy and fast to use after the first try, and doesn’t add extra sugars to your child’s food. Yes, I’d buy it again!
