The Best Prenatal Vitamins
Chewable Prenatal VitaminsThe majority of women do not need a chewable prenatal vitamin, and many women do not like the taste of chewable prenatal vitamins. Some vitamins and minerals naturally have a strong or unpleasant taste and odor, which can be difficult to mask. However, prenatal vitamins are usually quite large, and some women may have trouble swallowing them. Also, some women feel that swallowing a large and bulky tablet makes their morning sickness worse. For these women, a chewable prenatal vitamin may be the best choice.
Some prescription prenatal vitamins come in chewable form (such as NataChew®). In many cases, healthcare providers simply recommend taking two children's Flintstones™ chewable vitamins a day, which is similar to taking one prenatal vitamin (and these vitamins actually taste fairly good).
