If your child is a picky eater who adamantly refuses to eat anything in an entire food group, you may want to consider adding a multivitamin. In cases like these, first try to supplement the nutrients that your child is missing with food substitutes. For example, if your child vehemently refuses all dairy, look for other sources of calcium, vitamin D, protein and so on. If that doesn’t work, a supplement may be a good idea.
