Many parents provide their children supplements such as multivitamins, omega-3 pills and probiotics, thinking the added nutrients can only boost their child’s health. It can’t hurt, right?

Not so, according to CHOC Children’s clinical dietitian Jessica Brown. While supplements can have benefits, they may not be safe or necessary for every child. “National surveys actually show that most children are getting enough vitamins and nutrients already,” Brown says.
