The Details

Head Start Multivitamin Powder

Head Start is a one-of-a-kind children’s multivitamin powder that helps to fill in nutrition gaps and support kids to thrive. It mixes easily and has no aftertaste, making it enjoyable for even the most picky eaters.

A few years ago we set out on a mission to find the best children’s multivitamin there was, but we were dismayed that we couldn’t find one that checked all of the boxes on what we were looking for: gmo-free, unflavored, contains methylated forms of b-vitamins, and no artificial colors, flavors, or fillers. So we partnered with a local Naturopathic doctor, Dr. Matt Angove, and together came up with a children’s multivitamin that we are proud to support.

Head Start is made by Dr. Wholeness and contains all the major nutrients needed for complete nutrition. It is balanced with equal amounts of calcium and magnesium. Vitamin A for immune and skin support. It also contains choline which helps support learning and memory. Marigold is also included for the antioxidants lutein and zeaxanthin for eye support.

A key benefit in the Head Start Multivitamin is as much in what we DON’T put in the bottle as what we do:

  • EXCLUSION of folic acid and cyanocobalamin B12 (both synthetic vitamin forms)
  • INCLUSION of Methylated Folate (the natural form found in dark leafy greens) and Methylcobalamin (the natural form found in fish and eggs).

The big word nutritionists use to describe the Head Start folate is  (6S)-5-Methyltetrahydrofolic acid which is one step better than leafy greens!

It’s a long name but it makes a BIG difference. Bottom line, methylated folate is CRITICAL for proper nutritional support.

For peace of mind, Head Start does not contain any wheat, gluten, yeast, soy, dairy, fish, shellfish, peanuts, tree nuts, eggs, artificial colors, sweeteners or preservatives. It is non-gmo.

 

Please note: the container is filled based on the weight of the product (78 g), not based on volume. You will find that the container isn’t filled to the top with the vitamin, but rest assured the container still contains the 60 servings the nutrition label states.

What is the dose of Head Start multivitamin powder for my __ year old child?

For dosing suggestions, see the Head Start Dosing Guide here.


I noticed the container is only filled half way, is that normal?

Yes, that is normal. The container is filled based on the weight of the product, not the volume. Rest assured even though the container isn’t filled to the top, it still contains the 60 servings of 3/4 scoop the label states. We had a hard time finding a bottle that had a child proof lid and appropriately fit the product contents. We didn’t want to keep delaying the release of this wonderful multivitamin, so this is the container we went with for now. For those concerned about the extra plastic used, please know that we are looking for a better fitting bottle for the product. Thank you.


Is Head Start food-based or is it synthetic?

Head Start is not food based.  The forms of vitamins found in Head Start are bio-identical to those found in nature or created in the human body.  Some of the vitamins in Head Start are synthesized in a lab, but they are not synthetic.  A synthetic vitamin is a vitamin structure not found in nature. The vitamins in Head Start are all in their natural form as found in nature or the human body, but are not all derived via extraction from a food product, like fruits or vegetables.  So, they are not a “food based vitamin.”

Beautiful ingredients but

I love everything about the ingredients. I feel so at peace knowing that my babies get everything they need and the technology surrounding the iron is like the icing and the cherry on top for me. If it sits too long, more than an hour or so, the flavor becomes strong and my youngest won’t drink it. And that’s something that I can handle. Unless it’s something I’m doing wrong, and I will quickly fix my ratings if so! But it ends up sticking together? And I can’t use it bc it’s like a brick. I’ve tried to grind it up and it became a flat brick. I stored in a dark, cool , dry place. It’s the second jar and both did the same thing.

Hi Sharon, thanks for your review. We haven't had any other complaints about the Head Start hardening into a brick. I sent you a follow up email. I was wondering if you live in a humid environment? I know with another product we sell, very humid environments can cause that, but I haven't heard of that with Head Start.

Excellent Product and Very Reassuring

Excellent multivitamin. Super easy to give to my baby as I just put it in the Mt. Capra formula for her. This product is high quality and reassures me my baby is getting all the vitamins she needs to be properly nourished and healthy! Will continue to order.

Great for what it is

This provides a nice boost for my kids. I’m buying it for the methylated B vitamins. I’ve searched unsuccessfully for a vitamin for kids without the Vitamin A, as I don’t trust the synthetic form of this one, and it’s very easy for us to supplement as much natural Vitamin A as we want through foods (including cod liver oil). (Please, somebody get the memo! Haha!) We eat this in applesauce, but it tastes bad if it sits too long, so eat it quickly!
